Huntington Library Acquires Pynchon Papers
The Huntington Library in San Marino CA announced that they have acquired the papers of Thomas Pynchon. The collection filled 48 boxes: “70 linear feet of materials created between the late 1950s and the 2020s — including typescripts and drafts of each of his novels, handwritten notes, correspondence, and research.” Pynchon’s papers were collected and represented by his son, Jackson Pynchon. The materials are being processed and will be available “to qualified researchers” at an unspecified date in 2023.
The Huntington Library archives include the papers of Octavia E. Butler, among other notables. For more information, see the official announcement.
