Manuscripts and Archives - Transmissions from the Timothy Leary Papers: Greatest Hits
There are many worthwhile topics to explore in the Timothy Leary papers, which NYPL's Manuscripts and Archives Division recently made accessible to researchers. Indeed, as specialist Jennifer Ulrich writes, there are too many to cover in one blog post. Should one delve into his notes on prostate cancer? The Leary Circle? Tom Robbins's lovely stationery?The Adventures with Briscoe Country, Jr. and other cameos? Some of the most interesting documents from Leary's life were separated and filed as "Gems." In this post, Ulrich lists aspects of Leary and his papers that are gem-worthy—if not fascinating.
