Overview and metadata sections

Jovanovich, William.

William Jovanovich (1920-2001) was an American publisher, author, and businessman, who served from 1954 to 1991 as the president of the publishing firm Harcourt Brace & Company. The firm was renamed Harcourt Brace Jovanovich in 1970, when Jovanovich became the chief executive officer. Born in a coal-mining camp in Louisville, Colorado, to a Polish mother and a Montenegrin father, Jovanovich learned English in elementary school, completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado, and studied English and American literature at Harvard University. His graduate studies were interrupted by World War II, when he left school to serve as an officer in the U. S. Navy. After the war, Jovanovich returned briefly to his studies at Columbia University where he worked on a dissertation on Ralph Waldo Emerson. In 1943, he married Martha Evelyn Davis, with whom he went on to have three children. Due to financial hardship, Jovanovich left Columbia in 1947 to join Harcourt Brace & Company as a traveling college textbook salesman. He was promoted to head of Harcourt's school division in 1953 and became president of the company the following year at age 34.

Jovanovich was an innovative figure in the publishing industry. He popularized the use of colorful illustrations in textbooks, and he is credited with starting the first imprint, now a common feature of most major publishing houses. He persuaded Helen and Kurt Wolff of Pantheon Books to join Harcourt by allowing them to publish books under their own trade name. He made unconventional business decisions for a publisher, such as relocating the publisher's headquarters from Manhattan to Orlando and purchasing Sea World marine parks. Under his direction, Harcourt became one of the largest textbook publishers, while continuing to publish a variety of internationally known authors, including Mary McCarthy, Hannah Arendt, Italo Calvino, Alice Walker, Octavio Paz, Umberto Eco, and Charles and Anne Morrow Lindburgh. Jovanovich maintained close working relationships with certain authors, including Mary McCarthy and Charles A. Lindbergh, whose posthumous autobiography Jovanovich edited. Over the course of Jovanovich's term as chairman, Harcourt transformed from a small publishing house into a diversified company with annual sales of over a billion dollars. In the late 1980s, the company took on massive debt in a successful but ultimately damaging strategy to thwart a hostile takeover by the British publisher Robert Maxwell, leading to Jovanovich's resignation as president in 1990.

Jovanovich also wrote and published a number of his own books throughout his lifetime, including the essay collection Now, Barabbas (1964), the novel The World's Last Night (1990), the memoir The Temper of the West (2003), and several others. He also maintained a lifelong dedication to promoting the works of Yugoslav authors, the value of education, and the cause of Serbian nationalism. He died in San Diego, California, in 2001 at age 81.

The papers consist of professional and personal files of the American publisher and author William Jovanovich (1920-2001), largely spanning his time as president and chief executive officer of Harcourt Brace Jovanovich from 1954 through 1991. The majority of materials consist of author and publisher files, including correspondence with Svetlana Alliluyeva, Hannah Arendt, Matija Bećković, Sylvia Beach, Arthur C. Clarke, Edward Dahlberg, Milovan Djilas, e. e. cummings, T. S. Eliot, E. M. Forster, Hiram Haydn, Helen Hayes, Irving Howe, Jerzy Kosiński, Anita Loos, Marshall McLuhan, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Lewis Mumford, V. S. Pritchett, Erich Maria Remarque, Richard Rovere, Carl Sandburg, William Saroyan, Vasilēs Vasilikos, Andy Warhol, Leonard Woolf, and other notable authors, as well as publishers including Helen Wolff and Cass Canfield. A significant author file on Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh includes correspondence with and regarding the Lindberghs, corrected typescripts and proofs, research materials and writings by potential Lindbergh biographers, photographs, and other materials related to their books with the publisher. Much of the Lindbergh materials regard Charles Lindbergh's posthumously published Autobiography of Values, which Jovanovich personally edited. Jovanovich's working files, manuscripts, and proofs for his own novels and nonfiction works are also present, as are personal and professional correspondence, family memorabilia, and files pertaining to his speeches, travels, interviews, publishing industry activities, honorary degrees and awards, and personal interests, particularly in Yugoslav authors.

The papers are arranged into the following seven series:

Gift of Alexandra O. Fellowes, as Trustee of the Survivor's Trust created under the Jovanovich Family Trust dated March 20, 1990, as amended, in 2015 (2015-86). The author file for William Saroyan, which had been separated from the papers before they were donated to Princeton, was purchased in 2015 (2015-99).

Arrangement

Files are arranged alphabetically by name.

Scope and Contents

This series consists of William Jovanovich's files on nearly two hundred authors and publishers with whom he worked. Author files consist of correspondence with authors, their agents, and Harcourt Brace Jovanovich editors, as well as originals and copies of early manuscripts and drafts of writings, press clippings, book jacket proofs, recordings, and other editorial materials, although not all files contain both correspondence and writings. While author files primarily exist for authors whose work was published by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, there are also files on authors whose works Jovanovich was considering publishing before a contract fell through, those like Ambrose Bierce and Hart Crane whose works he was interested in reprinting, and authors he did not publish but to whom he otherwise provided guidance or kept up correspondence. Publisher files consist largely of correspondence and include a significant amount of material related to Helen Wolff, of the Kurt and Helen Wolff Book imprint of Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, a collaboration that began in 1961. Author files on Edward Dahlberg, T. S. Eliot, Vane Ivanović, Marshall McLuhan, and Carl Sandburg are particularly extensive.

Researchers should note that a large author file on Charles A. Lindbergh, as well as some materials regarding Anne Morrow Lindbergh, can be found in Series 2: Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh Files. Jovanovich maintained a very close relationship with the Lindberghs and personally edited Charles Lindbergh's autobiography. The separation of this file reflects the original organization of the papers.

Arrangement

This series is arranged into six subseries.

Scope and Contents

This series consists of editorial correspondence, writings by and about Charles A. Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, photographs, clippings, and other research materials. The contents reflect William Jovanovich's role as the primary editor and compiler of Charles Lindbergh's Autobiography of Values, as well as his role as the executor of Lindbergh's literary estate. Shortly before Charles Lindbergh died in 1974, he called William Jovanovich to his hospital room, handed over a suitcase containing almost 3,000 pages of drafts written over three decades, and asked Jovanovich to shape them into a publishable autobiography. With the help of Judith A. Schiff, an archivist at Yale University, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich published the heavily edited Autobiography of Values in 1978. While Lindbergh's original drafts reside at Yale, this series includes Jovanovich's working drafts for Autobiography of Values throughout the editorial process, as well as related correspondence, photographs, and research materials. Some drafts, notes, and other editorial materials pertaining to The Wartime Journals of Charles A. Lindbergh, which Harcourt Brace Jovanovich published in 1970, are also present.

As Lindbergh's literary executor, Jovanovich also worked with Anne Morrow Lindbergh and Reeve Lindbergh to determine which writers would be allowed to consult Lindbergh's papers and publish authorized biographies. Much of Jovanovich's correspondence with Anne Morrow Lindbergh and others pertains to his role as a mediator between the Lindbergh family and those interested in publishing books on Lindbergh. Drafts of unpublished biographies of Lindbergh are present in this series, including significant writings by Raymond Fredette and Alden Whitman. Whitman's files contain a notable group of correspondence and printed materials related to Lindbergh's interest in conservation towards the end of his life, including photographs of Lindbergh and Whitman visiting tribal communities in the Philippines. While Anne Morrow Lindbergh's literary work is represented in this series in the form of several typescript drafts, her correspondence largely regards her husband's legacy rather than her own writing.

Physical Description

26 boxes

Arrangement

Correspondence is arranged alphabetically by name, followed by general topical correspondence.

Scope and Contents

Correspondence is largely between William Jovanovich and members of his editorial team, such as Edith Cunningham, Susan Weinstock, and Helen Wolff, and the Lindbergh family, including Charles A. Lindbergh, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, and Reeve Lindbergh, or with authors writing books about Charles Lindbergh and researchers and archivists working with Lindbergh's papers. A significant amount of mixed correspondence regarding Charles Lindbergh, his writings, and his papers is also present, roughly arranged by topic following original groupings.

Arrangement

Scope and Contents

The bulk of this subseries consists of William Jovanovich's editorial drafts of chapters for Charles Lindbergh's Autobiography of Values, including several working versions of each chapter, along with setting copies, outlines, and plans for the book, notes, page proofs, and galley proofs.

A much smaller group of drafts, book jacket proofs, notes, and photographs related to the 1970 publication of The Wartime Journals of Charles A. Lindbergh is also present, as are long essays Lindbergh wrote in response to Kenneth Davis and Walter Ross's books about him and his corrections on John Nance's draft for The Gentle Tasaday, for which he also wrote the forward.

Arrangement

Correspondence in this subseries is arranged chronologically.

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of correspondence that Jovanovich filed chronologically, including both personal and business correspondence. For the years 1948 to 1952, correspondence consists of photocopies rather than the original letters, and there is a gap in correspondence during the mid-1950s. Correspondence for the late 1990s and 2000s is increasingly personal in nature.

Arrangement

Files for individual works are arranged alphabetically, followed by a bulk alphabetical file of shorter works maintained by Jovanovich's assistants, with additional topical files at the end.

Scope and Contents

This series consists of drafts, proofs, notes, research files, and source materials for Jovanovich's own writings and lectures, along with related correspondence, reviews, and clippings. Materials span his written works in nonfiction and fiction, as well as lectures and speeches on various topics related to publishing and writing, although some works are documented much more thoroughly than others. Jovanovich's nonfiction books, essays, and speeches largely revolve around the publishing industry, textbook publishing, the value of education, Serbian history, and creative writing. Writings represented in this series include Jovanovich's novels Madmen Must (1978), The Last Place (1978) and The World's Last Night (1990), his collection of essays Now, Barabbas (1964), and his memoir The Temper of the West (2003). While major works comprise their own files, there is also an alphabetical run of shorter essays and speeches, containing typescripts and clippings. Also included are several files regarding lectures Jovanovich gave at various colleges and universities, as well as some related correspondence.

This series consists of reports, correspondence, publicity materials, memorandums, and other documents related to William Jovanovich's role as chairman at Harcourt Brace Jovanovich.

Also present is a group of correspondence and other materials related to Jovanovich's employees, colleagues, attorney, and independent contractors who supported his publishing operation, as are annual reports, company memos, and proposals regarding textbook publishing. Company memos and policies consist both of formal office memorandums, as well as certain correspondence that Jovanovich kept and circulated articulating his thoughts on religion, evolution, and other topics as they relate to publishing.
