Comment: Prior to 1990, all manuscripts collections were cataloged at item level and are described in the Center‘s card catalog. The finding aids represent ONLY collections newly cataloged or recataloged into finding aid form since 1990. Thus many significant collections are not represented online. For information about collections not in the finding aids list, contact the Associate Librarian or the appropriate curator (see the Center‘s Departmental Directory). The data entered in this database has been transcribed from the Item Level Card indexes xeroxed circa 1995.

Comment: Southern Illinois University acquired its main collection of Graves manuscripts and letters in two separate accessions in 1965 and 1966. The first accession was the personal correspondence Graves received from 1919-1930; the second was an extensive collection of prose manuscripts which Graves had stored in the attic of his home in Mallorca, together with a great number of poetry manuscripts and an extensive collection of correspondence dealing with the production of some of the prose. Both accessions were first sorted by Graves, and the collection preserves this original order. For the complete inventory of the 28 Boxes see THE ROBERT GRAVES MANUSCRIPTS AND LETTES AT SOUTHERN ILLINOIS INIVERSITY: AN INVENTORY. by John. W. Presley, The Witson Publishing Co, Troy, New York, 1976. This forms the basis of the data herein in a slightly simplified format. The Higginson numbers have been updated and the Poetry and Short Prose identifiers have been added. An archival description by boxes and files may be found at

Comment: Robert Graves was one of the poets originally solicited by Charles Abbott. When a donation by Mrs. Mildred Lockwood Lacey in 1960 made it possible to acquire the manuscript of all Graves‘ books of poetry and some works in prose published from 1911 until 1955, this extensive archive augmented and extended the collection of British first editions already in The Poetry Collection.
