Overview and metadata sections
William Vaughn Moody was an American poet and playwright.
The collection consists of selected Moody manuscripts, letters, and miscellany. Included are three manuscripts of verse: "Dawn Parley" (1896), "Wilding Flower" (1896), and "Good Friday Night" (1897). Over sixty of the author's letters, most of which are addressed to Daniel Gregory Mason, 1894-1909, constitute the bulk of the collection. In addition, there is a scrapbook containing photographs, newspaper and magazine clippings, letters, and notes relevant to Moody's career.
An addition to the collection are transcript copies of correspondence between Moody and Jane Addams, Lewis B. Gates, Edwin Markham, Daniel Gregory Mason, Josephine P. Peabody, Edgar Arlington Robinson, and others (1895-1908).
