dc.descriptionFinding aid for a collection. Collection description: The collection includes correspondence, manuscripts of writings, research materials, reviews, publicity, legal and financial documents, theatrical clippings and programs, photographs, journals and diaries, family records and manuscripts of writings by others. The collection documents, in varying extent, Lytle's trips abroad (1921, 1924), his life at school (Oxford exams, Vanderbilt University, Yale Drama School), his careers as actor, farmer, author, teacher and editor, his activity in the Agrarian literary group, his strong family ties, his relationship with his wife, and his friendships, which include many fellow writers (especially Donald Davidson, Caroline Gordon, Frank Lawrence Owsley, Katherine Anne Porter, Allen Tate, and Robert Penn Warren), academic colleagues and devoted students. There is also a substantial amount of family correspondence and papers chronicling the Lytle, Nelson and related families of Tennessee. This collection will be of chief interest to those researching Andrew Lytle's life and writings, but it will be of importance to those interested in the Fugitive and Agrarian Groups and (to a lesser extent) the Sewanee Review. Special Collections holds three collections of Lytle's papers: one acquired in 1968, one in 1988, and one in 1998. This is the first.en_US
