Content Note

Correspondence, literary works and engraving plates dating from 1896 to 1943 comprise the greater portion of these papers relating to the Corell Publishing Company. Most of the correspondence and literary works are attributed to Booth Tarkington; however, some also concern Corell's magazine, John-a-Dreams. Correspondents include Edward W. Bryant, Robert T. Sloss, Carolyn Wells, Kenneth Brown, St. George Best, and Barton Currie. The collection also contains copies of the little magazine, John-a-Dreams, including its prospectus and inaugural issues. Also included in the collection is an original copy of Tarkington's The Kisses of Marjorie.

Literary Rights

Literary rights were not granted to Wichita State University. When permission is granted to examine the manuscripts, it is not an authorization to publish them. Manuscripts cannot be used for publication without regard for common law literary rights, copyright laws and the laws of libel. It is the responsibility of the researcher and his/her publisher to obtain permission to publish. Scholars and students who eventually plan to have their work published are urged to make inquiry regarding overall restrictions on publication before initial research.
