Creating the Historical Record in Literary and Personal Archives

My most recent post, “Creating the Historical Record in Literary and Personal Archives“, can be seen over at Activehistory.ca.  This post looks at the specific challenges around historical use of literary archives, the unique nature of documenting creative process, and how historians can use literary archival material.  I also look at the Brian Vallée fonds as an example of the type of material held in archives created by writers and the social history that is often included in these collections.
