Series III

Manuscripts (17.75 cubic feet):

These manuscripts of writers who worked at the Colony are ordered alphabetically by author; short or fragmentary manuscripts were placed at the end of the series. The sequence of manuscript drafts was often a matter of surmise, as they typically are undated. The pages of some manuscripts are not in order and are noted as such. The correspondence of the writers represented in this series has also been filed here.

This series includes several of James Jones' manuscripts (4.93 cubic feet). Included are drafts for some of Jones' short stories, manuscripts for "They Shall Inherit the Laughter" (his first, unpublished novel), and annotated manuscripts and galleys for From Here to Eternity.

Also included are three foreign editions of From Here to Eternity. Some Came Running is represented by two copies of the manuscript and an annotated galley.
