Biography/History

Born in Wayne County, Kentucky, Harriette Simpson Arnow (1908-1986) grew up in the rugged foothills of the Appalachians, where the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River emerges from the East Kentucky Coalfield. Arnow’s parents, Mollie Jane Denney and Elias Thomas Simpson, were schoolteachers before having their six children. After attending Berea College, Arnow became a teacher herself, at a one-room school in Pulaski County, Kentucky. In 1931, she earned a BS in education from the University of Louisville and taught until she moved to Cincinnati in 1934. In Cincinnati, as Arnow was writing her first novel, Mountain Path, she also worked as a waitress and typist and, eventually, as a writer for the Works Progress Administration, where she met journalist Harold Arnow. They married in 1939 and moved to Keno, Kentucky, to write and farm. During World War II, they moved to Detroit where Harold took a job at the Detroit Times and Harriette finished Hunter’s Horn. The Arnows had two children, Marcella and Thomas. Arnow's parents and grandparents were storytellers, inspiring Harriette to become a writer. She published short stories, five novels, and three works of non-fiction from the 1930s to 1977. Her acclaimed and best-selling novels, Hunter’s Horn (1949) and The Dollmaker (1954), are part of a Kentucky trilogy that includes Mountain Path (1936). In these works of fiction, Arnow explores how the social and economic fabric of rural Kentucky hill communities in the first half of the 20th century was changed by the coming of roads, electricity, and the World Wars. Arnow also completed two social histories, Seedtime on the Cumberland (1960) and Flowering of the Cumberland (1963), which examine the settlement of the Cumberland River Valley at the end of the 18th century, as well as a memoir, Old Burnside (1977), that focuses on her childhood in Pulaski County, Kentucky. Two final novels, Weedkiller’s Daughter and The Kentucky Trace: A Novel of the American Revolution were published in the early 1970s. She died in Michigan in 1986. A collection of short stories and a novel, Between the Flowers, were released posthumously.

Scope and Content

iii Publisher Correspondence, 1934-1986
Scope and Content Note:

The Publisher Correspondence Series contains both incoming (to Arnow) and outgoing (from Arnow) mail from various publishers and editors. The names and titles of these publishers and editors and their relationship to Arnow follows.

Harold Strauss, Arnow's editor for Mountain Path at Covici Friede, tried unsuccessfully to find a publisher for her second novel after Covici folded. He eventually became editor at Knopf and later edited Arnow's books The Weedkiller’s Daughter and The Kentucky Trace: A Novel of the American Revolution under that publisher.

Charles Cunningham was Macmillan’s Editor-in-Chief during the publication of The Dollmaker. Cecil Scott, Editor for Macmillan, edited Hunter’s Horn and the first part of The Dollmaker before falling out with Arnow. The break between Arnow and Scott came in a letter to Cunningham, October 26. 1952. Scott eventually became Editor-in-Chief for Macmillan. Susan Prink, worked for the editorial department during the publication of The Dollmaker. Virginia Patterson was the Publicity Director for Macmillan for more than a decade and continued her correspondence with Arnow during and after working for Macmillan.

A.J. Hart was Editor-in-Chief during the publication of Seedtime on the Cumberland and was fired in January, 1964, just short of retirement. Ada Shearon was Manufacturing Editor for Seedtime on the Cumberland. J.P.R Budlong was the Director of the Trade Department at Macmillan and was a reader of Seedtime on the Cumberland. Budlong was replaced by R.L. De Wilton in February, 1959. Mary Heathcote, an admirer of Arnow's, was editor after Hart left (February 1964-August 1967.) Heathcote was replaced by Diane F. Harris. J. Randall Williams, was Vice President at Macmillan during the publication of The Dollmaker. Williams left for Little, Brown, and Company. HSA helped push Harry Caudill's Night Comes to the Cumberlands for them. Helen Taylor was with Sloane, then went to Viking. Al Hart was a Senior Editor for McGraw-Hill. Robert Penn Warren was a managing editor of The Southern Review. Granville Hicks worked for Macmillan as a freelance editor and an author. Hicks read and helped edit Hunter’s Horn and The Dollmaker when Arnow no longer wanted Scott.

Country Beautiful magazine bought a Christmas story from Arnow, and then only paid $50 of the $300 owed her, due to their own financial difficulties. Arnow wrote several letters demanding payment. The article was submitted August 1, 1963. Arnow still had not been fully paid as of July 5, 1965.

v General Correspondence, 1918-1985
Scope and Content Note:

This series includes both incoming (to Arnow) and outgoing (from Arnow) letters of a general nature--i.e., not to/from immediate family members or professional (publisher) colleagues. Also held separately (See Box 43) are those incoming letters deemed to be Reader's Mail, which satisfy the criteria of being an initial contact from an otherwise unknown or unaffiliated individual (often praising a book or requesting a book or an autograph). The folder-level descriptions that follow are not exhaustive but, rather, representative. An attempt has been made to establish chronological context, and to identify significant letters or correspondents; but not all letters in each folder have been listed. Scattered throughout the General Correspondence are handwritten notes by Arnow often mere phrases, names, titles, or calculations that may appear in margins or on the backs of unrelated letters. Moreover, Arnow apparently often used the backs of previous typescripts (or any other available sheet of paper) for her carbon copies, and these are usually reproduced showing both sides, though many of these copies of carbons represent only a first page of a longer letter; correspondence consistently includes invitations to speak or appear, as well as inquiries about genealogical matters, and requests for advice from unpublished writers. In the case of new correspondents, initial letters from strangers to Arnow may be found in the Reader's Mail folders for the appropriate years, although Arnow often would reply, beginning a regular exchange. Most of the Arnow-authored letters (outgoing) are copies. The fragile originals have been preserved in separate envelopes and are stored, together, in Box 40.

1918-1934
[Box: 34, Folder: 1]
Scope and Content Note:

Correspondence includes: a 1918 postcard from a WWI Army inductee, for whom a 10-year-old Harriette Simpson apparently mailed a letter; two 1921 summertime letters from a former classmate at the Stanton Academy; several letters from the Kentucky Federation of Women’s Clubs concerning student loans to Simpson during her studies at the University of Louisville.

Gomon was a founding member of Planned Parenthood and both national and Detroit chapters of the ACLU. While there is no evidence from the letters as to how their friendship began, it is likely Arnow and Josephine met while working at the Willow Run Bomber Plant. The Arnows and Gomon lived relatively close to one another, and Marcella Arnow seems to be a frequent visitor to Gomon’s apartment.

Unpublished; Belle is a Civil War novel Arnow worked on toward the end of her career. Like its unpublished counterpart, To You No Place, Belle is a decidedly unfinished work with physical evidence of heavy reworking and large gaps in the narrative. Unlike To You No Place, though, we lack a complete, coherent set of manuscripts to help us gauge Arnow's creative process. As a result, Belle's method of composition and ultimate direction are not self-evident. While notebooks, pieces of drafts and a working version exist for Belle, none of these are complete in the conventional sense; the reader is left to work through the gaps in the collection and accept that Belle was left a work-in-progress at the time of Arnow's death.

a Notebooks, 1976-1978, 1982, 1984, undated
Scope and Content Note:

Following HSA's standard compositional procedure, Belle began as a series of notebooks, in which HSA would write, in longhand, entire episodes. In the margins or end pages of these notebooks she would often list or revise characters' names, make note of historical references or books to look up, or make personal notes and reminders. Though numerous, these notebooks do not reflect the whole of the Belle typescript, nor do they have much correspondence with the typescript. Only about one-third of the Belle typescript can be traced back to the notebooks in this collection and only then in significantly altered form. Whether HSA changed her method and composed on a typewriter, whether notebooks have been destroyed or misplaced or whether other notebooks exist is unknown. In any case, the notebooks in this collection have no continuity between them and serve mainly to represent the embryonic stages of the novel. The notebooks arranged here are in three categories: Very Early drafts, Early drafts and Later drafts (these distinctions were not made by HSA herself). The Very Early drafts are those that have only the vaguest resemblance to the typescript; sometimes the mention of the Civil War is the only indication we have that these drafts are related to the larger work. Early notebooks are closer to the typescript but differ in major respects. The biggest hint as to the relative date of the Early and Later notebook are the characters' names. Victoria, Jean Paul, Dave, and Akhim in the Later draft and most typescript drafts were Beulah, Dave, Dwight and Achen in the Early notebooks and the earliest typescript drafts. To avoid confusion, one should make note of the two different characters alternately named Dave. In the early stages of the manuscript HSA apparently had not arrived at names for some of her minor characters; they are either dubbed Name or signified by two dashes.

b Typescript Drafts
Scope and Content Note:

The condition of the drafts and cut-and-paste sections of Belle is much like that of the notebooks. What is represented here is incomplete and far from polished. As noted before, it is conceivable (likely, perhaps) that an intermediate typescript draft exists that was either lost, destroyed, not donated to Special Collections, or parceled out by HSA in cut-and-paste versions. The reader is left to deal with surviving fragments that suggest, rather than make evident, HSA's intentions. Like the notebooks, typescript drafts are categorized by Special Collections into Earlier, Early and Later Drafts. This categorization is done for the sake of convenience; the reader is cautioned, however, that: 1) each category probably contains the remainder of several drafts, given the fact that HSA did not revise the entire work (or an entire chapter) every time she made revisions, but wrote and edited in sections. The large gaps between sections make subcategorizing impossible; 2) HSA made numerous, heavy revisions to some episodes, while some episodes appear largely unchanged from the initial typescript. For this reason, there may be three Later versions of one episode or chapter and only one of the next chapter; and 3) The distinction between Early and Later Drafts is an arbitrary one made for the sake of this collection. The dividing line is the point in which the Beulah and Dave characters of the notebooks have their names changed to Victoria and Dave, respectively. This change not only occurs at a convenient midway point in the novel's composition, but also signals a shift in tone and direction that is reflected in the Typescript Version.

Belle Typescript Drafts and Fragments
Scope and Content Note:

The following sections are typescripts that reflect the early stages of Belle's composition both in characterization and direction. HSA's own edits, both typed and handwritten, emphasize that these are working drafts.

Typescript Fragments
Scope and Content Note:

The following are noncontinuous typescript fragments from the Earlier and Early Drafts. While these fragments may have similarity in passing to sections of the Later draft or the Typescript Version, they mostly represent rejected plot developments or episodes later superseded by the Later draft. There is no correspondence between the numbering of these drafts and the numbering in the Typescript Version; in the case of a page that HSA renumbered by hand, the later, handwritten page number is referred to below. Because these fragments are brief and provide few clues as to their interrelation, they have all been arranged in numerical order. It should be stressed that these fragments do not come from the same drafts but are the only surviving remains of heavy authorial revision.

Later Draft - Typescript Variants II
Scope and Content Note:

This series of Later typescript variants differ from those in Box 45, Folders 17-27 in that they are lengthy, often complete episodes that do not strictly correspond to the Typescript Version. When a correspondence can be inferred, it is noted below. The lack of page numbering and presence of alternate beginnings in some cases suggests that these were run-throughs of pivotal episodes.

Typescript Variants II
[Box: 45, Folder: 28]

c Typescript Version
Scope and Content Note:

Apart from a brief section published in Adena (Spring 1980) issue, this Typescript Version is the closest we have to a realization of Belle and the only draft with a beginning, middle and end. No conclusion can be made as to whether this typescript reflected HSA's final intentions or was ready to be offered in whole to a publisher. Judging solely from a textual standpoint -- taking into consideration the numerous editorial marks, page misnumberings, chapter misnumberings or omissions and several loose pages -- this does not appear to be a finished work. To present a legible version, original carbons co-mingle with photocopies. Rather than correct obvious mistakes in page and chapter numberings through renumbering, such discrepancies are noted below for the reader's information. In chapter numbering, HSA mixed Roman and Arabic numerals. For the sake of consistency with the final typescript, Roman numerals have been adopted in the following inventory. It appears that Belle never underwent editing beyond the expected authorial revision. However, it appears that HSA's daughter Marcella attempted to work on the Typescript Version after her mother's death. This attempt can result in some confusion. In Chapter IX, for instance, there is a glut of corrections made in pen using signs (such as question marks) that HSA never used in revising her own work. We have no indication that HSA dictated these changes nor would they seem to follow any editorial rationale. In addition, Marcella Arnow photocopied pages of the typescript. In the process, she wrote OBS (short for obsolete) in pen on pages she believed were merely carbons, superfluous to the Typescript Version. Unfortunately, several of those pages were not carbons but pages that filled gaps in the typescript. Several other marked pages were far clearer than the photocopies, necessitating their use in the Typescript Draft or Typescript Version boxes. Simply put, the reader should not misinterpret OBS as a directive or note by HSA.

Chapters I and II, p. 1-67
[Box: 47, Folder: 1]
Chapters III and IV, p. 68-140
[Box: 47, Folder: 2]
Scope and Content Note:

Writing in blue ink in Chapter IV by Marcella Arnow. Pages 73 through 75A and 93 through 95A probably later inserts.

Chapters V and VI, p. 108-156
[Box: 47, Folder: 3]
Scope and Content Note:

Writing in blue ink in Chapter V by Marcella Arnow. Note discrepancy in page numbering between Chapters IV and V. Three different pages numbered 138, all out of context to varying degrees. Page 144 has an extra line at the bottom of the page that seems out of context.

Chapters VII and VIII, p. 157-194
[Box: 47, Folder: 4]
Scope and Content Note:

Fragment of alternate beginning on reverse of p. 157. Chapter VII is entirely original carbons. Chapter VII is mostly original carbons, with exception to p. 184, 195, and 192.

Scope and Content Note:

Two variant p. 384.

Chapter XV, p. 402-459
[Box: 47, Folder: 8]
Scope and Content Note:

Two variant p. 436. There is no Chapter XVI; consistent page numbering suggests this is the result of misnumbering, rather than omission.

Chapters XVII and XVIII, p. 460-521
[Box: 47, Folder: 9]
Scope and Content Note:

Missing p. 489; context suggests this is the result of misnumbering, rather than omission.

Chapters XX and XXI, p. 522-580
[Box: 47, Folder: 10]
Scope and Content Note:

There is no Chapter XIX; consistent page numbering suggests this is the result of misnumbering, rather than omission. Includes typed note at the end of Chapter XX in regard to corrections; probably made by HSA.

B Between the Flowers
0.68 Cubic feet 2 boxes [Box: 49-50]
Scope and Content Note:

Arnow sent the third draft of this work to her publisher Harold Strauss at Covici-Friede circa September 1936 according to correspondence, making it her second known novel; however, Between the Flowers was not published until 1999 through the work of editor Frederic Svoboda. The typescripts are undated, but correspondence with Harold Strauss suggests that she sent the drafts for editing in late 1936 and early 1937. Arnow almost discontinued work on the novel after frustrations with criticisms from Mr. Strauss according to a letter dated circa early August 1937 (Box 30, Folder 1). In October 1938, Mr. Strauss left Covici-Friede and forwarded Between the Flowers to Alfred Knopf, for whom later Mr. Strauss would work and HSA would publish. In December 1938 (Box 30, Folder 1), Mr. Strauss wrote to Arnow, informing her that Mr. Knopf had declined to publish Between the Flowers. One of Arnow’s friends offered to publish the novel through his small, independent publishing company (Box 30, Folder 1); Mr. Strauss requested that she avoid this route, and he continued to send her manuscript to several publishers over the next few years, to no avail.

Includes a nine-page letter with handwritten notes on back (plus one page of handwritten notes). The letter explains her vision for the novel. Pages 5-7 are missing. Mr. Strauss mentions in a letter dated October 20, 1936 (Box 30, Folder 1) that he never received these pages, so it is likely that HSA did not include them in her submission packet.

Readers’ Reports
[Box: 49, Folder: 5]
Scope and Content Note:

The readers’ reports do not refer to the shorter draft in the collection, the partial draft sent to Mr. Strauss in late 1936. In the earlier, shorter draft, HSA refers to the male lead character as Wash, yet the readers’ reports refer to Marsh, a change noted in the longer draft of this collection. However, the reports do not refer to the longer, later draft, either; the page references do not match with the longer draft of this collection. It is unclear how many intermediary drafts HSA undertook, so it is impossible to determine which of those drafts the readers’ reports reference. Letters to and from Mr. Strauss, dated October 1937 (Box 30, Folder 1), mention the readers’ reports.

b Later Draft
Scope and Content Note:

This draft is a full-length typescript, as opposed to the partial, earlier draft. The typescript is split into two parts: Part I (Chapters I-XV) and Part II (Chapters XVI-XXVIII). The 1999 published version closely follows the typescript, except for some work on the ending.

Scope and Content Note:

Includes p. 226-319, 241A. Missing p. 290. Duplicate p. 316. Although there is no p.320, it is unclear if the last page of Chapter XX is missing or if it was skipped due to misnumbering of Chapter XXI.

C The Dollmaker
2.59 Cubic feet 9 boxes, 3 items, and 1 volume [Box: 54-59, 63, Item: 60-62, Volume: 64]
Scope and Content Note:

In an attempt to make The Dollmaker manuscripts accessible, they were grouped into four different versions. This arrangement does not necessarily represent Arnow's own order or sequence, and she certainly did not refer to them as Version 1, Version 2, etc. Some versions represent only a small portion of the novel. Where possible, an indication of the rough correspondence between the versions and the published first edition has been noted. Both Version 1 and Version 2 correspond roughly to Chapters 1-18 in published first edition. Version 1 is longer and appears to have been written first. Version 2 corresponds to the published version more closely that Version 1 in most cases. Of the four versions, Version 3 corresponds most closely to the published version. Version 4 appears to be part of an earlier version submitted to Cecil Scott, Arnow's editor at Macmillan, and some correspondence to the published version is apparent.

Some character names change from the earlier versions to the published version. Most notably, the Murphys become the Dalys and Mr. Hoard becomes Mr. Flint. Also included are the publisher's page proofs, pre-publication review copy, and galley sheets. Arnow worked on the manuscript for several years. In a letter to Charles Cunningham (Editor-in-Chief of the Trade Department, Macmillan) dated October 26, 1952, Arnow stated that she had been working on this manuscript for about four years (since before Hunter's Horn was published) and that she had thought about parts of it for twenty years. Arnow's struggles with this manuscript were compounded by the efforts of Cecil Scott. Between the revisions written by Scott and his suggested cuts, little of Arnow's original manuscript remained. Arnow finally finished the manuscript with the help of Granville Hicks, her editor for Hunter's Horn. Correspondence between Hicks and Arnow deals with the editing and revision of the manuscript, as well as the situation involving Scott. These letters include corrections suggested by Hicks and corrections submitted by Arnow as well as their personal anecdotes (See Box 31, Folder 5). It appears that Arnow often referred to the manuscript as The doll and Gertie. Roman numeral chapter numbers were given by Arnow.

a Notebooks
Scope and Content Note:

There are four boxes of notebooks related to The Dollmaker. Most notebooks correspond, at least in part, to the published first edition. Box 54 also includes notebooks relating to Dollmaker's Children and the [cat on roof story]. The word done in pencil on the cover of various notebooks appears to be Harold Arnow's indication that he had typed the notebook. There is child's scribbling throughout notebooks. The Roman numerals on the notebooks were given by HSA. Some notebooks are missing according to the Roman numerals, so they have been renumbered in brackets to provide uniformity. When a photocopy has been provided, the original should not be used due to its delicate condition.

Notebook (66), (p. 1-72) and edited typescript of The Dollmaker's Children.
[Box: 54, Folder: 4]
Scope and Content Note:

Corresponds to p. 2-12 of typed draft. This notebook is continued by Notebook XXIIIV which corresponds to p. 11-13 of draft. Since XXIIIV also contains section corresponding to first edition of The Dollmaker p. 138-141, it is in the proper order with the other notebooks used in the book. XXIIIV has pages that might correspond to p. 14-16 of The Dollmaker's Children, but we have no typed draft of those pages. Typed draft of The Dollmaker's Children with corrections (p. 1-11, 11 two p. 11s, 13, 17). No actual title on draft, but it appears to be an earlier version judging from two page draft by that title.

Notebook Dollmaker (69), (p. 1-32).
[Box: 54, Folder: 7]

Relates to [cat on roof story]. Back of notebook seems to be a review of Jesse Stuart's Beyond Dark Hills dealing with life in Kentucky mountains. Also includes photocopy of p. 21 of [cat on roof story] and photocopy of unnumbered page that appears to be p. 22 because it continues the flow of the story. Original is with first section of [cat on roof story] because there are handwritten notes on back.

Notebook Dollmaker Inner (70), (p. 1-32).
[Box: 54, Folder: 8]

D Hunter's Horn
3.09 Cubic feet 6 boxes and 1 volume [Box: 68-77, Volume: 75]
Scope and Content Note:

The many versions and variants of Hunter's Horn arrived at the University of Kentucky in complete disarray. With a few exceptions, pages were not in sequential order, and different versions and different formats (original typescript and carbon) were mixed together. Although certain pages apparently followed in sequence, it was not always clear with which version a fragment belonged. Moreover, many pages were missing. Arnow often used the reverse side of apparently discarded manuscripts to type something else. In some of her later works such as Weedkiller's Daughter, these discarded pages were from an earlier manuscript. However, in Hunter's Horn the discarded pages are, for the most part, from earlier versions of the same manuscript making the task of processing extremely difficult. It was not always clear which version came first. An attempt was made to place both versions within the logical progression of the manuscript. When the later version could be determined, the original was placed there and a photocopy of the earlier version was placed in an appropriate place. When it could not be determined which came first, the original was placed within the sequence of the most complete version and a photocopy was placed with the other version.

In an attempt to make the many fragments of the manuscript more accessible, the fragments were grouped as Early Drafts, Middle Drafts, and Later Drafts. These drafts were then sorted into versions. It must be emphasized that this arrangement into versions does not necessarily represent Arnow's own order or sequence. Rather the parts were pieced together by an educated guess as to what the original and appropriate order might have been. Some versions represent only a chapter or small portion of the novel because a definite link to another sequence could not be determined. It is quite probable that Arnow did not view these sequences as integral versions but rather as reworkings of particular parts of the manuscript. Where possible, an indication of the rough correspondence between the fragmented versions and the published first edition has been given. Also included are versions of chapters with headers that include Arnow's name and address. It is possible that these chapters were submitted as short stories or excerpts from the novel. Arnow worked on the manuscript for many years. Over the course of these years, Arnow changed the order and direction of the story several times. Although many of the incidents in the Early and Middle Drafts also occur in the Later Draft, the sequence of events is different. Therefore, it was very difficult to arrange the manuscript in a logical order.

Macmillan accepted the manuscript for publication in 1946, but the book was not published until 1949 after extensive revisions and other problems. Correspondence between Arnow, her editor Granville Hicks, and Macmillan reveals several quarrels over the length of the book, its title, and the lack of definitive action by Macmillan to publish the book. Only after Arnow, encouraged by Hicks, pursued a contract with another publisher did Macmillan finalize the deal. Cecil Scott, an editor at Macmillan, was also involved with this manuscript (See The Dollmaker). Although parts of the story first appear in the Early and Middle Drafts, it is not until the Later Draft versions that the novel has assumed a general shape close to the published version. Arnow was particularly upset by Macmillan's decision to rename the manuscript. The original title End of the Gravel was considered too vague and regional to have mass appeal. Other possible titles included King Devil and The Hills Remain. The title Hunter's Horn was never satisfactory to Arnow because she felt it gave the impression of English-style fox hunting which is nothing like fox hunting in the hills of Kentucky. In later years, Arnow referred to the novel as the horn. In a note found with the manuscript, Arnow states that the original manuscript sent to Macmillan was destroyed, but she does not elaborate. There is some confusion over a missing chapter of Hunter's Horn. Upon surveying the four copies of the novel in Special Collections, discrepancies were found. The original version which was used to write this inventory [New York : Macmillan, 1949 (1st printing)] contains 38 chapters. Another version published later (New York : Macmillan, c1949) contains only 37 chapters. A version published in Great Britain (c1950) contains all 38 chapters. A 1986 edition by the University Press of Kentucky is a reprint of the c1949 version with only 37 chapters. The controversial Chapter 30 concerns the illnesses of Lureenie and her children due to starvation. No apparent reason for the omission was determined from the books or from the correspondence. Also included with this manuscript are fragments that could not be placed within a version, summaries of the story, notes, and a hand-drawn map of the Ballew area. Some pages contain typescript on back. When this appears to be only typing mistakes or false starts, it was not noted. A child's scribbling appears throughout the manuscript. Roman numeral and quoted chapter headings were given by Arnow.

a Notebooks
Scope and Content Note:

There are four boxes of notebooks related to Hunter's Horn. Since Arnow did not number the notebooks, we have no way of knowing the order in which the story was written. Therefore, the notebooks have been arranged according to their correspondence with the published first edition. This arrangement is based on the correspondence of the beginning of the notebook to the published first edition. It must be stressed that this was not Arnow's ordering and almost certainly does not represent the order in which the story was written. Box 68 contains 4 notebooks relating to the story, but which contain no real correspondence to the published first edition. Page numbers and notebook numbers in brackets represent our numbering not Arnow's. When a photocopy has been provided, the original should not be used due to its delicate condition.

Early Draft, Version A.1, B.1, C.1, C.2, D.1, D.2, D.3, D.4, E.1 and E.2 contain variants of Chapters 1-3 in the published version. Early Draft, Version D.4 appears to be a handwritten draft of Early Draft, Version D.3. Early Draft, Version F.1, F.2, F.3, G.1, and G.2 include versions of early chapters that were not included in the published version. Early Draft, Version G.2 appears to be a handwritten draft of Early Draft, Version G.1. Early Draft, Versions H.1 and I.1 appear to be handwritten drafts of book Chapters 34 and 12, respectively. Early Draft, Version J.1 (p. 50-408) appears to be the earliest, relatively complete version of the manuscript. It has little correspondence to the published version. Early Draft, Version K.1 includes a version of book Chapter 9 that appears to have been written between Early Draft, Versions J.1 and L.1. Early Draft, Version L.1 (p. 1-403) has more correspondence to published version than Early Draft, Version J.1. Early Draft, Version M.1 (p. 1-408) could possibly be the carbon of Early Draft, Version L.1. However, the first page of every chapter is different. Many pages have been renumbered, sometimes more than once. Many pages contain handwritten notes on back of page. Child's scribbling is also common throughout the manuscript. When a photocopy has been provided, the original should not be used due to its delicate condition. Roman numeral and quoted chapter headings were given by Arnow.

1.8 Cubic feet 4 boxes [Box: 76-79]
Scope and Content Note:

Unpublished [Character names: DD, Johalia, Mollie, Maggie, MU] The manuscript for the unpublished novel To You No Place (as Arnow entitles it in the last draft of the manuscript) is preserved here in all its known versions. The novel grew out of the unpublished short story A Journey for Lucinda, though the lack of a date on the manuscript prevents one from knowing when the novel was commenced or how soon the novel followed the short story ( Lucinda was submitted to Arnow's literary agent, Henry Volkening in January 1954, Box 33, Folder 3). In keeping with her usual work habits, Arnow often used the back of personal letters, early drafts and typescript notes to both Seedtime on the Cumberland and Flowering of the Cumberland in the composition of the To You No Place typescript. In these cases, the original was photocopied, then the photocopy placed within the To You No Place typescript, while the photocopy of a letter was placed within the appropriate correspondence box, photocopies of drafts were placed with fellow drafts and so on.

The last known typescript of To You No Place (known here as Version A) was given to Special Collections preserved in a cardboard box, complete and in order. All other drafts of the novel and short story arrived at Special Collections unsorted, with pages of separate drafts commingling. Because Arnow numbers each page, though, it was possible to piece together a running order for all drafts. In addition to the two latest workings of the novel (Versions A and B), there is an earlier version dating from around 1961, referred to here as Version C. In a self-deprecating letter to the author and editor John Leggett on October 19, 1961, Arnow describes her submission of this version to Macmillan, who, she says, rejected it with vehement speed. Though she goes on to say in the letter that she cannot say it would have merit, it appears from this submission to Leggett and her two subsequent reworkings of the novel that she did have some publication hopes for this novel. Both A Journey for Lucinda and To You No Place are resolutely works-in-progress.

The manuscript of A Journey for Lucinda includes three distinct beginnings (plus a fragment with a fourth beginning) as well as three distinct endings. An educated guess was made in surmising the causal link between the three drafts: handwritten emendations to the first draft (draft A) became part of draft B and draft B's emendations find their way onto draft C's typescript. One should not assume, however, that draft C was Arnow's intended final version or that it is the version she submitted to Henry Volkening. As for the novel, its genesis probably lies in Box 76, Folder 5, which has fragments of A Journey for Lucinda. The numbers in parentheses in the typescript are Arnow's own references to the corresponding manuscript page. Where a correspondence, even a rough one, between manuscript and typescript can be established, it is noted below. For reasons unknown, the final typescript of the novel (Version A) lacks a corresponding set of drafts and notes, while only fragments of Version C have been retrieved from the backs of her everyday correspondence. With the exception of Versions A and C of To You No Place, both the story and novel are composed on very cheap, fragile paper: either a coarse, newspaper-type paper or a brittle, tissue-thin paper. Unfortunately, due to prohibitive cost, all of these pages cannot be photocopied for use in these collections. Therefore, appropriate care must be taken when perusing and handling these materials.

F The Kentucky Trace: A Novel of the American Revolution, 1974
2.03 Cubic feet 5 boxes [Box: 80-84]
Scope and Content Note:

New York: Alfred A. Knopf. The many versions and variants of The Kentucky Trace arrived at the University of Kentucky in disarray. With a few exceptions, pages were not in sequential order, and different versions and different formats (original typescript and carbon) were mixed together. Although certain pages apparently follow in sequence, it was not always clear with which version a fragment belonged. Moreover, many pages were missing. Arnow often used the reverse side of apparently discarded pages from one work to type something else. For example, some pages of The Kentucky Trace were typed on the backs of correspondence and drafts of essays, and vice versa. In these cases, the original was photocopied and kept with the material where it was found, and the photocopy was placed in the appropriate file.

In an attempt to make the many fragments of the novel more accessible, they were grouped as Early Drafts, Middle Draft, Late Draft, and Final Draft. The Early Drafts have been sorted into versions, an arrangement which does not necessarily represent Arnow's own order of sequence; she certainly did not designate her drafts by using these terms. The parts were pieced together by an educated guess at what their original and appropriate order may have been. Arnow quite possibly did not think of some of the sequences as integral versions but rather as reworkings of a particular part of the novel. Precisely when Arnow began working on the novel is unclear. In a letter dated July 23, 1971, Harold Strauss queried her, asking Are you . . . working on a book now? If so, what is it, and when do you expect to finish it? In a letter from Arnow to Strauss dated September 12, 1972, she apologizes for the time she's taken to finish the manuscript, which, she says, still does not have a suitable name. Six months later, on March 7, 1973, Arnow wrote to Strauss to tell him that a draft of about 105,000 words will be on its way to him shortly (the Middle Draft likely represents this draft). Strauss's assistant at Knopf acknowledged receipt of the manuscript on March 28, 1973. After extensively revising portions of the novel during the next several months (see the Knopf correspondence file, Box 32, Folder 2, for discussion between author and editor/s), the novel appeared in publication in June 1974. Much of the revision between the first submission and the final typescript centered on the initial and especially the closing chapters of the novel. The many revision attempts of various pages and sections comprise the Late Draft, which is not, in itself, a whole draft. The Final Draft is composed of the extant pages, mostly carbons, that closely match the published version.

a Notebooks
Scope and Content Note:

Version A consists of seven extant notebooks and an incomplete typescript of these notebooks, which together represent Arnow's initial attempt at the first working draft of The Kentucky Trace. Following her usual drafting process, Arnow wrote this first draft in notebooks and then typed them (or perhaps had her husband or someone else type them), sometimes making slight revisions or commentary in the running text during the transcription. Some notebooks and portions of the typescript of Version A are missing. Plot events are similar to the published version, but some names are different (most notably, Watson in this version is Leslie in subsequent versions).

G Mountain Path, 1936
0.45 Cubic feet 1 box [Box: 85]
Scope and Content Note:

Mountain Path was Arnow's first novel. She first submitted the typescript to Macmillan, who rejected it. She submitted the same draft to Harold Strauss at Covici Friede, where it was subsequently published. Mr. Strauss initially warned Arnow that the draft in its then-current form would meet opposition, calling it another hillbilly novel somewhat melodramatic in nature in a letter dated March 12, 1936, and encouraged revisions (Box 30, Folder 1). Arnow’s first literary agent, Elizabeth Nowell, submitted the draft to a contest by Houghton Mifflin publishers after Covici Friede’s initial hesitance to publish, a move which nearly wrecked [HSA’s] chance of publication, according to a letter by Galena Hopkins on April 14, 1936 (Box 33, Folder 2). Arnow terminated her contract with Ms. Nowell in April 1936 and requested to withdraw the book from Houghton Mifflin. Arnow began working with Galena Hopkins in April 1936.

Scope and Content Note:

According to Arnow in the introduction (Box 85, Folder 1), this typescript was the copy she sent to Macmillan, who subsequently rejected it, and to Harold Strauss at Covici Friede.

H The Weedkiller's Daughter, 1970
5.68 Cubic feet 14 boxes, 1 item [Box: 86-99, Item: 100]
Scope and Content Note:

New York: Alfred A. Knopf. The many versions and variants of The Weedkiller's Daughter arrived at the University of Kentucky in complete disarray. With a few exceptions, pages were not in sequential order, and different versions and different formats (original typescript, carbon, and photocopies) were mixed together. Although certain pages apparently follow in sequence, it was not always clear with which version a fragment belonged. Moreover, many pages were missing. Arnow often used the reverse side of apparently discarded pages from one work to type something else. For example, the reverse sides of pages from The Weedkiller's Daughter were used to type parts of Kentucky Trace, A Tumor Tale, and various correspondences. In these cases, the original was photocopied, and the photocopy was put with the appropriate part of The Weedkiller's Daughter, and the original was left with the material where it was found.

In an attempt to make the many fragments of the novel more accessible, the manuscript fragments were grouped as Early Drafts, Middle Drafts, Later Drafts, and Typesetters Drafts. These drafts were then sorted into versions. It must be emphasized that the arrangement into versions does not necessarily represent Arnow's own order or sequence, and she certainly did not call the versions Early Draft, Middle Draft, etc. Rather the parts were pieced together by an educated guess at what their original and appropriate order might have been. In cases where one sequence of pages might follow another sequence but the thread between the parts could not be established clearly, the sequences were kept separate, but a note was made about their probable link. It is quite possible that Arnow did not think of these sequences as integral versions but rather as reworkings of a particular part of the novel. Some versions represent only a chapter or small portion of the novel because a definite link to another sequence could not be determined. Where possible, an indication of the rough correspondence between the fragmented versions and the published version has been given. Arnow worked on the manuscript over many years. Early Version B.1, p. 55 has the following note: begun writing Dec. 5 here, 1963--typed Feb. 19, 64 [sic]. Harold Strauss formally accepted the manuscript for publication by Alfred A. Knopf in his letter of July 7, 1967, but it was not until November 13, 1969 after the manuscript had undergone extensive revision that he was able to send Arnow the first copy of The Weedkiller's Daughter to come off the press. The Knopf correspondence deals with the editing and revision of the novel (See Box 31, Folders 8-9, and Box 32, Folder 1). An indication of the extent of the revisions is the fact that one of the early typed versions (Early Draft, Version E.2) has pages numbered to 1073, but the typesetter's version contains 614 pages. In his letter of March 28, 1968, written after he received the last 300 pages of the novel, Strauss asks Arnow to submit again an earlier version of the manuscript. His letter of April 19, 1968 indicates that the editors are reading the two versions of the novel. It appears that the editors decided on the shorter version. In the Middle Draft versions, the novel has assumed a general shape close to the published version. It appears from some of the file folders in which the manuscript was kept that Arnow at some point called the manuscript Ter and Light My Fire. Roman numeral chapter numbers were given by Arnow.

a Notebooks
Scope and Content Note:

There are two boxes of notebooks related to The Weedkiller's Daughter. The notebooks in the first box correspond at least in part to the published version.

b Typescript Versions, Early Drafts
Scope and Content Note:

Early Draft, Version A.1 includes p. 1-170 (including chapters III, V, VI, and VII). Some of the pages in this draft have been renumbered or numbered twice, and it is not always clear which numbering sequence should be followed. Because of the ambiguity of this double numbering, a fragment which originally may have been part of the Version A.1 sequence has been designated Early Draft, Version B.1 (p. 49-72, 75-87). There are text and notes on the reverse side of some pages in the early drafts. Early Draft, Version C.1 includes p. 99-124, 175-256 (chapters IV and VI). Early Draft, Version D.1 (p. 1-51, 64-107, with p. 64-91 renumbered 40-66; including chapter II) incorporates some changes from Early Draft, Version A.1. Early Draft, Version E.1 includes p. 216-370 (chapters X-XIII). Early Draft, Version E.2 (381-721, 735-861, 935, 1028-1073) appears to follow Version E.1. Most of Version E.2 was not used in the published version. Some pages in E.2 have notes indicating where and when the page was written. Version E.2 contains a few photocopies of hand written pages that were found with but do not fit into this sequence. Because of the renumbered pages and because it is not clear where Early Draft, Version F.1 and Early Draft, Version G.1 should fit in the sequence of Early Drafts, these two fragments have been kept separate. Early Draft, Version F.1 (p.6-26) is dated June 17, 1964 on p. 26. A note on p. 33 of Early Draft, Version G.1 (p. 37-63 renumbered p. 12-39) dates that fragment on Aug. 4. Early Draft Fragments Folder 19 contains numbered and unnumbered pages that belong with the early drafts but do not clearly fit into a particular sequence. One reason for the difficulty in linking pages was that there are many pages missing. Correspondence between some but not all of these fragments and the published version have been established. Correspondence between the various Early Draft versions and chapters in the published version have been noted. When a photocopy has been provided, the original should not be used due to its delicate condition. Roman numeral chapter numbers were given by Arnow.

c Typescript Versions, Middle Drafts
Scope and Content Note:

Middle Draft Versions A.1, A.2, A.3, and A.4 are very close in text. Middle Draft Version A.2 is the carbon of Middle Draft Version A.1. Middle Draft Version A.4 is the carbon of Middle Draft Version A.3. Middle Draft Version A.1 appears to have been written before Middle Draft Version A.3. Corresponding pages in Versions A.1 and A.3 often begin and/or end with the same word. Version A.3 is the most complete version. Versions A.1 and A.2 are fragmented with numerous pages missing. Chapter divisions in the Middle Draft versions correspond to the published version in many but not all cases. Roman numerals refer to Arnow's chapter numbers in the draft. Correspondence between the various Middle Draft versions and chapters in the published version have been noted. Middle Draft, Version A.1 (p. 1-376, scattered) includes variants of several pages (p. 8.84, 180, 188, 308, 310, 375). Middle Draft, Version A.2 (p. 2-376, scattered), the unedited carbon of Version A.1 includes variants of p. 118, 375. Middle Draft, Version A.3, is the edited typescript of chapters 1-15, p. 1-377. Editing in blue and red ink and green pencil is probably by Arnow. A few notes in red and pencil queries may be by an editor. Middle Draft, Version A.4, the carbon typescript of Middle Draft, Version A.3 is an unedited, fragmented version. There are computations and text on the reverse of a few pages.

d Typescript Versions, Later Drafts
Scope and Content Note:

Later Draft, Version A.1 (p. 1-755 [scattered], 800-4, 825-6) is an edited, fragmented version. Editing appears to have been done primarily by Arnow. Some parts are cut and pasted. Later Draft, Version A.2 (p. 3-37) appears to follow p. 826 in Later Draft, Version A.1. Because of the possible confusion resulting from the page numbering, A.2 has been made a separate version. Later Draft, Version A.3 (p. 38, 81, 194, 432-577 [scattered], 685-757, 800-845 [scattered]) is a very fragmented carbon copy of Later Draft, Version A.1. However, parts of Version A.3 are substantially different from A.l because A.1 is an edited and, in part, cut and pasted version. Later Draft, Version A.4 (p. 6-485 [very scattered], 800-4), is a very fragmented photocopy of Later Draft, A.1. Later Drafts, Version A.5, A.6, and A.7 are all reworkings of the first chapter. Version A.5, a fragment of unedited typescript (p. 1-5) and carbon (p. 2,3,5,6), has slight variations from the beginning of the first chapter in A.1. Version A.5 does not incorporate changes made on Version A.l. Later Draft, Version A.6, edited typescript (p. 1-19 [scattered]) and unedited carbon (p. 1-19 [scattered]), is similar to Versions A.1 and A.5 but is slightly more colloquial in diction. A note on Later Draft, Version A.7 indicates that it is a retype of p. 1-5 inclusive of manuscript originally sent to Mr. Strauss. Later Draft, Version A.8 consists of seven variants of p. 81-84. Not all variants include all pages in this sequence. Later Draft, Version B.1 (p. 6-483 [scattered]) incorporates changes from Later Draft, Version A.1. Later Draft, Version B.2(p. 1-364 [scattered]) is the unedited carbon of Later Draft, Version B.1. Later Drafts, Versions B.3 (p. 1-27) and B.4 (p. 1-295 [very scattered], 432-65 [scattered]) are photocopy versions of B.1. A few pages have text on the reverse side. Later Draft, Version C.1 (p. 357-855 [scattered] almost appears to be a continuation of Later Draft, Version B.1. However, some pages overlap with different page variants in the B.1 version. Version C.1 appears to have been written after the B.1 version. The pages of Later Draft, Version C.1 were one of the few parts of the novel that were found together in relative order in a box and definitely appear to belong together as a coherent version. Later Draft, Version C.2 (p. 42-855 [scattered] is the carbon of Later Draft, Version C.1. Later Draft, Version C.3 (p. 90-853 [very scattered]) is the photocopy of Later Draft, Version C.1. Later Draft, Version D.1 (p. 109-145 [scattered], 204-607 [scattered]) probably was written after Later Drafts, Version A.1, B.1, and C.1, but this is not certain. It is more compressed than some of the earlier versions. Later Draft, Version D.2 (p. 204-607 [scattered]) is the carbon of Later Draft D.1. Later Draft D.3 (p. 614-635) is a photocopy that contains editing by Arnow and by someone else, possibly an editor. Later Draft, Fragments E.1 and E.2 are fragments that appear to be part of the Later Draft. Because of missing pages, it was not possible to fit these fragments into the various drafts.

ii Short Fiction
1.13 Cubic feet 3 boxes [Box: 101-103]
Scope and Content Note:

All extant versions of Arnow's short stories are kept in this collection. Stories are arranged alphabetically; where a story undergoes a title change in revision, it is cross-referenced to its counterpart. While there are no exact dates of composition for these stories, there are some clues as to the general chronological order of the stories, as most drafts have a return address in the upper left-hand corner.

The breakdown is as follows: Burnside (c. 1920s): Dreams Come True, The Goat Who Was Cow, Winky Creek's New Song.

Cincinnati (c. early 1930s): Blessed--Blessed (later draft), An Episode In The Life of Ezekial Whitmore (later draft), Home Coming, Ketchup Making Saturday (later draft), No Lady, Sugar Tree Holler, Tin Cup, White Collar Woman.

Covington (c. 1930s): Almost Two Thousand Years, The First Ride, Fra Lippi and Me, The Hunters (a.k.a. The Two Hunters), Zekie the Hill-Billy Mouse. Keno (c. 1939-1944): The Gift, Jamboree (both later changed to Detroit on typescript), The Lesson.

Detroit (c. mid-1940s): King Devil's Bargain.

While these stories probably were not written in this order, sorting them by this method at least gives some hint as to their date of completion and submission to periodicals. Further information can be gleaned from the log Arnow kept in the 1930s, tracking the completion and submission of various stories (see Box 2, Folder 42). An interesting side note is the existence of the H. Simpson responsible for An Episode In the Life..., The Hunter and The Two Hunters. The stories themselves are certainly Harriette Arnow's work, dating back to her writing at Burnside, but The Hunter and The Two Hunters were published under pen names. Esquire published The Two Hunters in July 1942, a reprint of Harriette Simpson's The Hunters, with credit on the author page going to H.L Simpson, pictured and described as a man, with no mention of Harriette (while she jokingly refers to this incident in her letters with editor Harold Strauss, there is no mention of who the man in the picture is; Esquire thought they were printing a story by a man. The story was republished in the Fall 1979 Appalachian Heritage and credited to Harriette Arnow. The Hunter, in the Atlantic Monthly, November 1944, is credited to H. Arnow (the pen name of a husband-and wife-collaboration) (p. 79).

Whether this collaboration was a true writing and editing team or a compromise to the publishing industry is unknown. This collection houses 34 complete stories and two lengthy fragments. Of these 34, 18 are stories never published in any form (plus, obviously, the two fragments), 6 are unpublished drafts excerpted from longer works that were published later and the remaining 10 are published. In addition to these stories, several drafts of a story entitled The Lamb Money are in the Hunter's Horn series. It is known that she submitted a draft of this story to The Atlantic Monthly. However, due to missing pages, it is unclear which, if any, of these drafts were intended to be published as a short story; therefore, that story is not included here.

The publishing history of those stories is as follows: 1934: Marigolds and Mules ( Kosmos, August/September). 1935: A Mess of Pork ( The New Talent, October-December). 1936: The Washerwoman's Day ( Southern Review, 1). 1942: The Two Hunters ( Esquire, July). 1944: The Hunter ( Atlantic Monthly, November). 1963: The Washerwoman's Day (reprint) ( Deep Summer - Kentucky Writing, Number 4). 1971: Love? ( Twigs, Fall). 1973: The Washerwoman's Day (reprint) ( Appalachian Heritage, Fall). 1979: Fra Lippi and Me ( Georgia Review, Winter); The Two Hunters (reprint) ( Appalachian Heritage, Fall). 1980: Interruptions to School at Home ( Adena, Spring). 1981: The Washerwoman's Day (reprint) ( I Have A Place, an anthology published by Alice Lloyd College). 1986: Fra Lippi and Me (reprint) ( Georgia Review, 40th Anniversary Fiction Retrospective, Spring). 1988: Blessed--Blessed ( Appalachian Heritage, Spring/Summer). 1989: The First Ride ( Appalachian Heritage, Fall). Unfortunately, it appears that the final drafts of the stories published early in Arnow's career, like The Washerwoman's Day and A Mess of Pork, were kept by their respective publisher.

All photocopies of published stories are from the original magazine, except where noted. As for the untitled stories below, no information is given by Arnow in the margins or in a heading as to their date of composition. In these cases, each story's first line and cast of characters are given to aid the reader.

Narrative has characteristics similar to The Dollmaker: tensions and differences between hillbillies and others living in the alley in likely Detroit during World War II figure prominently in this story. Characters include Mrs. Davis, Mrs. Lawson, Mrs. Shopinsky (?), and the Prossers.

Rejection slips
[Box: 103, Folder: 8]
Scope and Content Note:

Includes photocopied rejection slips from various publishers and magazines concerning Arnow’s short stories and poetry in the early stages of her writing career. Marcella Arnow’s handwriting in blue ink on each of the photocopies indicates that she provided the photocopies while retaining the originals, which are not part of this collection. While many of the notices are the standard form letters, several notices include constructive criticism, indicating that Arnow’s work was being read by publishers. Especially notable is the March 1934 rejection slip from Hal Roach Studios (then a major Hollywood Studio) for a work entitled Calf Money. Because there is no draft of that work, it is unknown whether this was Arnow’s own screenplay, an idea for a screenplay, or possibly connected to her short story The Lamb Money. Also, there are three brief rejection notices from Southern Review (subsequent to her publication of The Washerwoman’s Day in that magazine) from editor Robert Penn Warren. These notices are arranged alphabetically by magazine and include the following: American Prefaces, The Anvil, Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, Frontier and Midland, Kosmos, Manuscript, The New Talent/Advance Guard Quarterly, Hal Roach Studios, Southern Review, and Sweetheart Stories/Dell Publishing. Marcella Arnow also provided photocopies of form rejection letters from The Frank A. Munsey Company, L ove Novels Magazine, The Farmer’s Wife, Street and Smith Publications, McFadden Publications ( Liberty), Story, Munsey Publications, and The Saturday Evening Post.

Arnow's logbook
[Box: 103, Folder: 9]
Scope and Content Note:

Includes notebook with the words Memorandum Book on the front cover. In addition to the rejection slips and letters from editors, Arnow kept a logbook of her various submissions early in her writing career. The contents are mostly self-evident (submitted stories are itemized by their dates of submission and return, then listed separately in a sort of inventory; addresses are given for magazines and literary contacts). Several stories apparently submitted to major magazines are not found in our collection. These include Please the Guests (submitted to Author's Exchange), Crazy Blanket (Curtis Publications and Writer's Digest), Madame Butterfly ( Liberty and College Humor). Other stories with unfamiliar titles are: Algebra is Simple, Two of a Kind, Mountain Woman, She Hated Him, Chick Girl, Secretary. Mistake in Heaven, Teacher Story, Eyes in the Twilight, Against the Wind, I Went To the Store, Girl Marriage, Chicken Story, The Last Snow, Pie Supper, and London Copy. Some may exist under other titles or correspond to later novels (as The Hunter corresponds to Hunter's Horn). In the margins, Arnow made notations like pulp alongside the stories Mountain Woman and She Hated Him and juvenile alongside Pie Supper. Pages containing addresses have been photocopied and placed with Addresses in Personal Notes folder (Box 126, Folder 14).

iii Poetry
0.23 1 box [Box: 103]
Scope and Content Note:

Arnow wrote a few pieces of poetry, but she did not have great success. It is unclear if she attempted to publish many pieces on her own. The two known published pieces in this collection, To Know the Rain and Ode to a Purple Aluminum Christmas Tree, are listed as found poems by Ronald W. Butler, suggesting that they were originally published elsewhere. A rejection slip from Kosmos mentions Logic as being amusing (Box 103, Folder 7). Because most of the rejection slips are form letters, it is difficult to assess which are for short fiction and which are for poetry.

i Autobiographical Writing
A Early Days at Keno, 1939 Autumn
Scope and Content Note:

This unpublished manuscript is entitled Early Days at Keno because the folder in which it was contained upon arrival at Special Collections was so labeled. It is unpublished except for two short excerpts (see Box 105, Folder 14). By all indications, the manuscript was written starting at the end of the summer of 1939. At this time Arnow and her husband Harold had recently purchased and moved onto an abandoned farm on Little Indian Creek on the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River in Pulaski County, Kentucky. This autobiographical essay, 179 pages in length and written in a journal style, describes, in colorful, personal imagery, the pleasures and trials of living in close association with the land and its seasons, and sharing with neighbors the challenges and amusements of day-to-day rural life. The first entry is dated August 31, the last entry September 1 [1940]. This appears to be an original manuscript, although pages 1-3 are probably carbons. Most of the manuscript is in very fragile condition; each folder contains a photocopy, which is the user copy. Special Collections holds only one version of this manuscript and as far as is known no subsequent versions exist.

Scope and Content Note:

Two pages labeled by author as page 95. Arnow's pagination starting at page 95-0 does not make sense. The page has been rearranged so that the error will not confuse future readers. The corrected pagination goes as follows: Follow Arnow's pagination through page 96. At that point what Arnow labeled page 99-1 becomes page [96-1]; what was the backside of 99-1 becomes [96-2]; Arnow's page 95-0 becomes [97-1]; the backside of 95-0 becomes [97-2]; what Arnow called 97-1 becomes [98-1]; what was the backside of 97-1 becomes [98-2]. What Arnow labeled 98-1 becomes [99-1], and what was the backside of 98-1 becomes [99-2]. From there the pagination returns to Arnow's page 100-1. Arnow's entry of March 30 seems to be a typo and was probably intended to be March 3.

B Short Essays, 1941
Scope and Content Note:

Three short autobiographical essays, never published, were also written while Arnow was residing in Pulaski County. These essays were written in an informal, personal style. Unlike Early Days at Keno, however, they were not written as a journal.

The Simple Life, circa early 1941
[Box: 105, Folder: 15]
Scope and Content Note:

Ten page original with photocopy. Some light editing. In this 10 page autobiographical essay Arnow discusses her impressions of living simply in Pulaski County, noting that, while she and Harold had found many joys in the rustic life, they had found little of the simplicity. The various demands of attending to a household and farm are discussed, as are county politics, relations with neighbors, local gossip, and the Works Progress Administration. The essay is in fragile condition; a photocopy is provided as a user copy.

Health, circa 1941 January
[Box: 105, Folder: 16]
Scope and Content Note:

Twelve page original with photocopy. Some light editing. Page six is missing. This 12 page essay focuses on the efforts that Arnow and Harold took to protect their health while living on their Pulaski County farm. She compares their health while living in town with that of country living, discusses local health services, describes the steps that she and Harold took to maintain bodily comfort, and discusses their diet in considerable detail. Her biggest consternation was a fear of accidents, since the nearest hospital, she explained, was about 110 miles away. The manuscript is in fragile condition; a photocopy is provided as a user copy.

Plans and Problems, circa 1941 February
[Box: 105, Folder: 17]
Scope and Content Note:

Twelve-page original with photocopy. This 12 page essay, written 18 months after Arnow and Harold arrived at the farm, takes stock of their experiences up to that time. The title conveys the basic theme of the essay, which is that their expectations and plans regarding country living had to be modified and made more realistic. Apparently one of the reasons they moved to the country was to have more time to write, but the demands of farm and household resulted at best in their writing no more than they did when living in town. Arnow describes the various chores that she and Harold had to do, and reflects on the differences between country and city living, particularly as they affect what Arnow calls their standard of living, although she uses the term to apply to more than simply income. The manuscript is in fragile condition; a photocopy is provided as a user copy.

C Untitled, circa 1966-1970
Scope and Content Note:

Mostly dating from the late 1960s, this is a series of autobiographical essays concerning Arnow's health and lifestyle in that time period. The piece as a whole does not have a collective title; folders containing some fragments of the work have titles like Biography of a Bodyand A Tumor Tale written on their outside, but there is no evidence that these titles are Arnow's own or were ever considered as titles. The version collected in Box 106, Folders 2 and 3, appears to be the version that Arnow worked on last.

According to the letter from Arnow to her physician Dr. Kahn on November 18, 1969 (Box 106, Folder 1), the composition of this piece was designed to be therapeutic. Apparently Dr. Kahn read this version of 173 pages and made suggestions for cuts (implying that a secondary purpose of this piece was eventual publication in a magazine or journal). The last of these three letters to Dr. Kahn, dated April 14, 1970, has Arnow mentioning her latest series of edits (cutting 107 pages roughly in half) and her hope that the thing [presumably this piece] will earn some money for the [medical] department. In the April 14th letter, the penciled-in brackets represent proposed cuts, probably by Arnow. In addition there are many interrogatives on the margins, presumably to get Dr. Kahn's input on what to cut or keep. This collaborative effort presents the most polished version of this autobiography, though then UK graduate student Martha Billips, who was the first to review this manuscript in 1986, believed it was less revealing as a result.

Marcella Arnow labeled the version in Folders 2 and 3 Version 1 in blue ink on the typescript, but it is certainly not the first version written. Because the revisions seem to have occurred months apart, each version offers a new slant on Arnow's life in the late 1960s, a period marked not only by illnesses (a pituitary tumor, a bladder infection, an ulcer, several vision problems and a marked slide into depression) but by her children leaving home and endless revisions of The Weedkiller's Daughter. Following this argument, it stands to reason that the earlier versions offer a more immediate, fuller depiction of her life. For this reason, all attempts have been made to piece together complete versions of each section and present each version as a separate, unique entity, rather than a rejected draft. Because of large gaps in some versions, it was necessary to piece together carbons and originals within a version in order to present a narrative whole. It may be possible that some pages of this piece are on the back sides of other manuscripts, just as drafts of The Weedkiller's Daughter,original correspondence and notes for speeches (all of which have been photocopied) appear in these drafts.

The raw materials of this autobiography have been rearranged in reverse chronological order; the reader can work backwards, from the 1970 version commissioned by Dr. Kahn, through its various (and varying) editions, to the initial journal, which recounts events dating back to 1960. Before Dr. Kahn's input, however, Arnow apparently had a design in mind as far as presentation of this autobiography. The piece moves chronologically through four sections. Only the versions in Folders 2 and 3 and Folders 4 and 5 are presented together as a whole, since they are the only drafts where all four sections were found together. Where a correspondence between sections can be inferred in other versions, it is mentioned below. For this reason, all versions of Section I (save the Dr. Kahn versions) are collected together, in reverse chronological order, then Section II, and so on. Roughly speaking, Section I, titled Old Age in later drafts, is a retrospective, self-penned medical history up to about 1964, with descriptions of her health before and after the births of her children. Section II, Decrepitude, seems to be a contemporaneous account of her condition between March 1966 and January 1967, after leaving the hospital for treatment of her vision problems (an early symptom of her tumor). Two interesting anomalies in this collection relate to this section. First, an early draft titled 1966 exists, which may have been written before the four-section schema of this piece was formulated. Second, the piece found in Box 107, Folder 9, relates the same experiences as Decrepitude but in a more detached style, without specific names and places, suggesting strongly that Arnow may have contemplated turning this experience into a short story. Metempsychosis, Section III, is a contemporaneous account of her surgery and recovery from a pituitary tumor. Its earlier versions also offer some of the most unflinching portrayals of her mental condition at the time; perhaps for this reason, it is one of the more heavily reworked sections. Though no drafts name any names, Martha Billips believes the early drafts recount a trip Arnow made to a writer's workshop at Morehead State University in the company of James Still. Arnow moves this episode to Section II in her last version. Section IV is alternately titled Temporary Backsets and Temporary Backset; whether this subtle change was intentional or erroneous is unknown.

As with the other three sections, various undated versions exist, without any clear indications as to their origins and order. Some strong hints exist, however: because the handwritten emendations to the draft in Box 107, Folder 7 show up in the typescript in Folder 6, for example, we can make an educated guess that the Folder 7 version was written first. Also notable is the shift of narrative tone: one need only to compare the final paragraphs of the two aforementioned versions to trace the decline from optimism to undisguised despair, finally resolving in the benign, resigned tone of the Box 106, Folder 3, version. Much of this anxiety regarding her surroundings and the state of the nation circa 1969-70 also found its way into Arnow's fiction at this time-- The Weedkiller's Daughter and the unpublished To You No Place.

Sections I (Old Age, p. 1-21, complete) and II (Decrepitude, p. 1-26, complete)
[Box: 106, Folder: 2]
Scope and Content Note:

Probably the last draft. Lightly edited, with penciled brackets, presumably by Arnow, to show proposed cuts. Blue felt-tip pen markings by Marcella Arnow.

Sections III (Metempsychosis, p. 1-39, complete) and IV (Temporary Backset, p. 1-21, complete)
[Box: 106, Folder: 3]
Scope and Content Note:

Probably the last draft. Lightly edited, with penciled brackets, presumably by Arnow, to show proposed cuts. Blue felt-tip pen markings by Marcella Arnow. Change in Section IV's title is probably not Arnow's.

Draft of Section I, untitled
[Box: 106, Folder: 4]
Scope and Content Note:

Because of Arnow's inconsistent system of numbering and renumbering over the course of revision, the materials in this folder have been arranged by context, rather than page numbers, which often conflict. Heavily edited, with several cut-and-paste sections and comments by an outside reader, usually pertaining to medical issues (presumably Dr. Kahn). Draft includes four handwritten pages, probably unconnected to each other, of preliminary drafts. Draft of Section II, titled Part II Decrepitude, p. 1-47, missing p. 3 and 5. Self-edited, with many cuts suggested in pencil.

Draft of Section III, titled Metempsychosis
[Box: 106, Folder: 5]
Scope and Content Note:

Pages 1- 58, complete, heavily self-edited in red pen and pencil. Editorial comments in another hand (p. 39, et al.) are presumably Dr. Kahn's. Draft of IV, titled Temporary Backsets, p. 1-26, complete. Self-edited, with many cuts suggested in pencil. Ending is significantly different than that in Folder 3.

D Old Burnside, 1977
Scope and Content Note:

Old Burnside was commissioned and published (1977) by the University Press of Kentucky for its Kentucky Bicentennial Bookshelf series. The slender volume (less than 150 pages in its first edition) is both a history of Burnside and a series of Arnow's recollections of her childhood in the Pulaski County town. Like so many of her other works, Old Burnside saw many changes over the course of its composition, often due to author-publisher disputes. Invited by the publisher to expand the historical background in the book, Arnow, after undertaking extensive research and revision of the original typescript, produced a work reminiscent of her Cumberland social histories and more in-depth than her publishers intended. After some sharply worded letters from Arnow and an unfinished attempt at condensing the history, the final typescript and the published version isolated the historical material to Chapters 1 and 2. The personal history that makes up the remainder of the work was also edited down. As a result, the published version seems to be a compromise between author and publisher, with the publisher winning out.

The materials in this collection offer a glimpse of Arnow's original intentions for Old Burnside. Due to the aforementioned incomplete versions of the book and a cut-and-paste version (Box 109, Folders 2-12) in which the unused remnants were likely discarded, the collection for Old Burnside has more fragments and loose pages than most of Arnow's other works. While it is possible that interstitial pages connecting the fragments may be found in the unprocessed pages of this collection, it is more likely that these fragments are a lasting result of several drastic revisions and reworkings. Also, it should be noted that Arnow used a mixture of Roman and Arabic numerals to number the chapters over the course of composition. For the sake of consistency, this inventory, in accordance with the published work, uses Arabic numerals.

A number of letters in the publisher correspondence, Box 32, Folder 4, detail Arnow’s experience with the University Press of Kentucky in writing this novel. William Jerome Crouch (signing his name as Wm. Jerome Crouch in correspondence) first approached Arnow with the proposal to write a Burnside memoir for the bicentennial bookshelf series in 1972. After a few years of tense letters, Arnow comments in early 1975 the best thing to be done is forget . Later in the year (September 8, 1975), Bruce Denbo explains that the UPK cannot enter into a contract until after the board has approved her manuscript. The next year (June 15, 1976), Mr. Denbo asks that Arnow condense the historical section of her work to only twelve pages, a request which leaves Arnow grieved and shocked and comments that she would prefer a rejection (June 30, 1976). Mr. Denbo and Arnow arrived at a compromise wherein she would remove the political and military history but leave the rest.

a Early Draft
Scope and Content Note:

ii Social Histories
Scope and Content Note:

The social histories of the Cumberland area ( Seedtime on the Cumberland and Flowering of the Cumberland) are peculiar in that both manuscripts are largely incomplete. While other manuscripts from Harriette Arnow may contain chapters fragments (see Old Burnside), these fragments are difficult, if not impossible, to place. Furthermore, because the books rely on the same resource materials as explained below, the fragments were often difficult to differentiate between manuscripts (both between versions of the same manuscript and between Seedtime and Flowering). The sections of this part of the collection can be broken into three main categories: Research Materials, Seedtime on the Cumberland manuscript, and Flowering of the Cumberland manuscript. With the other manuscripts, if any research materials existed, they were placed with only that manuscript. For the social histories, the research material has been combined. The reasoning behind this is that the resources for the books often overlap, as Arnow commented. On June 6, 1962, Harriette Arnow sent a letter to Mrs. [Gertrude] Parsley for the official business of requesting permission for materials (General Correspondence). You have no doubt been made awre [sic] many times through the years that I am working on a manuscript concerned with pioneer days on the Cumberland, a part of which was published in 1960 under the title . I am now in the final stages of preparing another, tentatively titled, for possible publication in late 1963. Later in the letter Arnow continues, "This second manuscript is more in the nature of a companion piece to Seedtime than a squel [sic], and thus makes use of much the same sources." Arnow did not intend for the research materials for the books to be separated.

A Research Materials
Scope and Content Note:

In the mid 1950s, Arnow received correspondence from Mrs. A. S. Frye regarding research for the Cumberland books. Letters from Mrs. A. S. Frye have been placed in the General Correspondence (Box 34, Folders 15-16) in 1954 with the dates of May 2, August 5, August 6, August 23, August 26, September 12, October 3, October 27, November 28, and November 30 and in General Correspondence (Box 35, Folder 1) in 1955 with the dates of February 24 and March 16. It is interesting to note that this research was completed six years before publication of Seedtime and nine before publication of Flowering.
