Overview and metadata sections
Born in Norwalk, Connecticut, Alyse Gregory was an editor of The Dial, suffragette, novelist, and wife of British novelist and essayist Llewelyn Powys (1884-1939). She died in Devon, England, in 1967.
The collection consists of correspondence of Gregory with her friend A. H. Degenhardt, including approximately 140 autograph letters (1944-1967) to Degenhardt, with typed transcripts (1944-1963) of some of them, and 10 letters (1947-1954) by A. H. and William Degenhardt. Many of these letters discuss Llewelyn Powys and his works. Also present is a pamphlet entitled "Honey and Gall" by Powys and inscribed by Gregory.
This collection was created by combining several other collections in 1993. Some of these were purchased in 1987 and others were the gift of Mr. W. Degenhardt in 1987.
Folder inventory added by Nicholas Williams '2015 in 2012.
