Carlton & Territa Lowenburg, Collection on Dickinson

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: MS-0090

Scope and Contents

The Lowenberg Collection consists of materials relating to the life and literary work of Emily Dickinson. It includes selected copies of manuscripts, pamphlets, periodicals, newspaper clippings, and items dealing with Dickinson's life, her family, friends, associates, and mentors. There are also items that are associated with the Dickinson's community and the time period in which she lived. Materials in the collection also document the Lowenberg's work in gathering the collection together. There are no original materials created by Dickinson in the collection.  Within the correspondence were thirty letters written by Thomas Wentworth Higginson (1823-1911) that range from the year 1869 until 1910. The letters are sent to Higginson's friends and acquaintances, such as Marion Talbot and James Redpath.  The letters discuss Higginson's activities with various clubs or associations and his work with women colleagues on reforms.
