Ivan Beede, Correspondence

 Collection — Box: 001
Identifier: MS-0002

Scope and Contents

The collection contains Ivan Beede’s letters to his friend Kenneth Forward written from 1920-1931. In his letters he describes life in Boston, its social scene and political campaigns, the newspaper world, and discusses contemporary writers, plays, and other events. Of special interest is his interview of the Gish sisters, R. Duncan, and Pola Negri. Beede also mentions several University of Nebraska professors like Frye, Gaffney, Gass, Rice, among other, obviously responding to remarks made in Forward’s letters. Beede has contact with the American writers living in Paris in the twenties. He interviews George Moore, writes about Gertrude Stein, N. Asch, the Ezra Pound “disciples” and Edna Millay. In his letter of May 29, 1923 he comments on an interview with Willa Cather.

In addition to the letters, the collection contains newspaper clippings, postcards, reviews, and some biographical materials.
