Overview and metadata sections
A graduate of Princeton (Class of 1916), where he befriended F. Scott Fitzgerald, Edmund Wilson became an important American literary critic, essayist, and journalist. Many consider Wilson the preeminent American literary critic of his day and, perhaps, of the twentieth century.
The collection consists of over thirty letters and cards from Wilson (Princeton Class of 1916) to Margaret Rullman, a childhood friend. Among the photographs included are pictures of the author as a child. In addition, there are newspaper clippings of articles relating to Wilson's career.
Gift of Mrs. Walter A. Rullman, March 26, 1980 (AM80-102).
