hemingway-standing-deskI came across the following ten articles regarding Ernest Hemingway during a recent survey on the web:


Rare Hemingway Letter Found

Add another Ernest Hemingway letter to the mix that has not been previously published. The letter, written in 1926, was recently found by Jennifer Towes of the manuscripts section of the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library. The letter shows a generous side of Hemingway who offers to go 50/50 on helping to publish writer Morley Callaghan’s novella. Both men had first met as reporters at the Star in 1923. Dr. Sandra Spanier of Penn State had confirmed that this particular letter had never been published or cited in any other Hemingway biographies.

15 New Hemingway Letters Acquired

A nice article by Martine Powers appeared in our Boston Globe on Thursday March 29th titled Hemingway Letters offer glimpses of author’s soft side. The Hemingway Museum at the JFK Library recently acquired 15 new Ernest Hemingway Letters – sounds like another great reason to get back for a visit! Susan Wrynn, curator of the EH collection actually went to Italy to personally pick up the letters. One of the letters was written to  Gianfranco Ivancich who of course is the brother of Adriana who EH had a crush on and was used in his work. Maybe we shall see some of these letter’s in one of the upcoming volumes of Letters by Sandra Spanier? See press release from JFK Library here.
