Scope and Content Note

The Richard Lebherz Papers are a collection of correspondence from Coleman Dowell to Richard Lebherz during 1968 to 1976. In the letters, Dowell discusses his personal life, as well as, his work, and the business atmosphere in the publishing industry of the time. There are also two photographs, one of Coleman Dowell taken by Carl Van Vechten and another of Richard Lebherz.

Strengths of the collection include the development of the English and American novel, with an emphasis on the Gothic and the Victorian novel.
