Scope and Content Note

The Howard Brubaker Papers are a part of the Fales Library, New York University. The Fales Library is the primary special collections division of the NYU libraries, housing nearly 200,000 volumes of English and American literature from 1700 to the present. Strengths of the collection include the development of the English and American novel, with an emphasis on the Gothic and the Victorian novel.

The papers consist of typescript copies of short stories, press clippings, and correspondence from family, various leftist and liberal organizations, literary agents, editors, publishers and fans.


Series I consists of Brubaker's original short story and newspaper column manuscripts, rough drafts, and story and column ideas and worksheets.

Series II consists of magazines, newspapers, and periodicals in which Brubaker's stories, paragraphs, and bon mots appeared in print.

Series III consists of Brubaker's personal and literary correspondence.

Series IV consists of Brubaker's financial and tax statements.

Series V consists of unprocessed newspaper clippings, mostly clipped by the Roemike clipping service, of Brubaker's appearances in newspapers across the country.

Series VI consists of a single box of oversized materials.


Folders are generally arranged alphabetically by subject.

The files are grouped into six series.
