Erle Stanley Gardner Literary File Photography Collection

No. of Items:

40,000

Span Dates:

Description:

The Erle Stanley Gardner Literary File contains approximately 40,000 photographic prints, slides, and negatives (some stereographic), housed in approximately 57 document boxes, 13 storage cartons, and 16 albums. An avid photographer as well as a writer, Gardner documented his travels in Europe, China, South America, the South Pacific, and his hunting trips across the western United States. This finding aid comprises a partial list of the contents of this file, as perhaps half of these materials are completely unprocessed.

This collection forms a part of the Literary File Photography Collection that is comprised of photographs and albums withdrawn from the libraries and/or papers of literary figures, and generally includes portraits and images collected by or of those figures.

Access Restrictions:

Special permission, plus advance notice, is required to access the negatives in this collection. To make an appointment, please contact Reading and Viewing Room staff.
