Scope and Contents

The Pound materials include selected copies of correspondence, most of which are photocopies. The only original correspondence is a single letter written by Pound to "Mr. Filley" on December 4, 1949 and an additional two letters sent to Pound from John Ferguson. In one letter dated April 24, 1923, he thanks her for sending a copy of Poetic Origins and asks her to accept a copy of a volume by David Gray. In the second letter, dated June 2, 1923, Ferguson asks her to accept a copy of his work titled Thyrea and Other Sonnets. Additional materials include reprints of Pound's articles and book reviews and biographical materials such as obituaries, newspaper clippings, and photographs. Many of the obituaries and biographical materials are written by individuals who knew the Pound family, including copies of reminiscences written by Olivia Pound and a transcribed letter written by Laura B. Pound, Louise's mother. Later newspaper clippings include tributes or commentaries on Pound's life and her achievements.
