Evaleen Stein papers, 1889-2005
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: The Evaleen Stein papers (1889-2005; 0.1 cubic feet) document the life and career of Evaleen Stein, one of the first female authors of note from Indiana.  The collection consists of seven of Stein’s poems and letters from Ms. Stein to Mrs. William Graham, one of which describes a benefit that was thrown for Ms. Stein by several notable Indiana authors (George Ade, James Whitcomb Riley, Charles Major, etc) to enable her travel to Europe.  All but one poem in the collection are handwritten by Ms. Stein.  Also included in the collection are two letters written by Glen Swiggett to the Purdue libraries during the process of donating some of Ms. Stein’s poems and clippings of an article and unpublished book introduction written by Robert Kriebel (who has done extensive research on Evaleen Stein and her family). Although it is a small collection, the papers do reflect Stein’s writing style and provide insight into her relationships with other people.  The collection might be useful to researchers interested in prominent individuals in the greater Lafayette area, Indiana poets, female authors, and nature writing in the early twentieth century.  Types of materials include correspondence, poetry, and clippings.  The papers are organized into a single series.
