Summary
This is a synthetic collection that includes manuscripts, letters and photographs, as well as manuscripts and letters relating to the author. The material covers the years 1914-1963 with the bulk of the material dating from 1914-1916. A significant part of the collection consists of 60
letters, 13 poems and 7 snapshots that were the property of the recipient, Mrs. Beatrice Ashe Maher of New London, Connecticut. The letters were written between 1914 and 1915 with one exception that dates from July, 1916. During this period, O'Neill was taking a playwriting course at Harvard University with Professor George Pierce Baker and his first book, Thirst and Other One-Act Plays, was being published. O'Neill met Miss Ashe in 1914 when she was not quite 18 and he was 25. The topics covered in the letters include discussions of the author's work, personal hopes, ambitions and health. The bulk of the poems are love poems written to Miss Ashe.
