Summary
Papers include correspondence, literary manuscripts and notes, articles and lectures, notebooks, photographs and sound recordings which document Angela Morgan's life and career as journalist, author, poet, lecturer and recitalist from 1904 until her death in 1957. About one-half of the collection consists of manuscripts of published and unpublished poems, short stories, novels, articles, lectures and autobiographical writings. The correspondence is mainly with fellow poets, friends, benefactors, admirers, and family members. Some of the correspondence relates to her mystical experiences. The literary notes record the development of her ideas and philosophical reflections throughout most of her writing career. Included are notes on romantic love and on the psychology of the creative worker. There are also sound recordings of Morgan reading her poetry and of performances of songs for which she wrote the lyrics.
