Bernard Malamud Papers, 1949-2007

Content Description

The collection consists of newspaper clippings, book reviews, memorial service notes, correspondence, videos, and periodical articles covering the years 1949 through 1998. It also contains a collection of his published works in foreign language editions. The personal correspondence in the Malamud Collection consists of items to and from Chester Garrison (covering the years 1965-1985) and Sylvan Karchmer (covering the years 1952-1971). General correspondence spans the years 1949-1986, and includes letters written by his wife Ann Malamud. The newspaper clippings, mostly reviews of Malamud's books, cover the years 1952, when his first book, The Natural, was published, to 1971. The remainder of the collection includes various items such as Malamud's memorial service notes, an audio tape of the service, and four video tapes documenting his work.

An interview on Malamud with Nelson Sandgren, as conducted by Suzanne Clark on May 28, 1988, has been digitized and made available online.
