Dan Jacobson material acquired by the HRHRC in 1994 consists of notes, notebooks, printed articles, computer printout drafts, page proofs, dust jackets, and correspondence relating to his book The Electronic Elephant: A Southern African Journey. Because Jacobson used typescript fragments of The God-Fearer and papers relating to his teaching post at University College to print out some notes and the 'Semi-Final' draft, these may be found on the versos of some printouts.

The material is housed at the end of the Jacobson papers previously received by the HRHRC, and continues the box and folder number sequence. Intellectually, this new material belongs with the Creative Works subseries. Further additions are expected.


A first edition of The Electronic Elephant, published in 1994 by Hamish Hamilton Ltd., has been withdrawn from the collection and cataloged with the Center's book holdings.
