Scope and Content

This series consists of cuttings, offprints and journals on a variety of subjects, including material relating to: the Bolton group and associated individuals; friends and acquaintances of Wallace; Whitman-related book and manuscript collections; Whitman himself; Whitman enthusiasts in America and Canada; the socialist movement; religion and mysticism.


Most of the cuttings, offprints and journals in the collection had already been bundled together in one box. They have therefore been kept together, and other items of this nature which Minnie sent to the Library on various occasions have been incorporated into this series. Some of the items here were clearly Wallace's own; others have been collected and added by Minnie; the provenance of the remainder is unclear.
