262 Sinclair Lewis letters to Marcella Powers now published

Thursday, January 21, 2010

262 letters written by world-famous and Minnesotan Sinclair Lewis to his mistress Marcella Powers between 1939 and 1947 are now available on the Minnesota Digital Library's Minnesota Reflections website.  The letters are housed in University Archives. A collaborative project between Minnesota Digital Library and the University Archives, the collection represents the first time a comprehensive collection of Lewis primary source material has been made available via the Web.

The archival finding aid for the letters is available on the University Archives' website.  A press release is also available from St. Cloud State.

Thanks to those who made the project possible: Marian Rengel, Alissa LaChapelle, the Lewis family, Gene and Ina Winick, Tom Steman, LR&TS Dean Kristi Tornquist, Associate Dean for Library Services Ruth Zietlow, and, above all, Sinclair Lewis and Marcella Powers.
