Some of the threads that tie our collections together are shared provenance, physical format, content and time period.
Our collection of Edwin Arlington Robinson materials is a prime example of interconnectedness. Major donors for the Robinson Collection – H Collamore Bacon, Ruth Robinson Nivison and Margaret Perry – facilitated the acquisitions of associated literary collections.
- Lilla Cabot Perry
- Thomas Sergeant Perry
- Harold Trowbridge Pulsifer
- Laura E Richards
These collections resonate with our Robinson Collection in terms of literary genre (American poetry), format (personal library, letters and manuscripts) and time period (late Victorian-early 20th century).
