Summary
The Claude McKay collection (additions) consists of correspondence, manuscripts, a galley, and related printed material. The correspondence is mostly letters from McKay to Simon Williamson which trace the development of their friendship and its dissolution, and letters to Ruth Raphael that discuss McKay's health, writings, and conversion to Catholicism. The general correspondence folder contains letters about "Bambara" magazine, a literary endeavor proposed during the Harlem Renaissance. Manuscripts include a poem by McKay, with editorial notes, entitled "Note to Harlem", along with a corrected typescript of "My Greenhills of Jamaica," and the galley for book, "Selected Poems of Claude McKay" published after his death. The news clippings are mostly obituaries and matters relating to the distribution of his literary papers.
