Overview and metadata sections

Malliol, William

William Malliol (the pseudonym of William T. McInenly) was a native of London, England. He immigrated to the United States in the 1950's and served in the Korean War with the U.S. Marine Corps where he became a sergeant and earned three Purple Hearts. Malliol taught English at Cheshire Academy in Cheshire, Connecticut, from 1959 to 1961; he also worked as an advertising copywriter, salesman, and ship's captain before turning his attention solely to writing. He published two novels, A Sense of Dark (1968) and Slave (1986).

White, Margaret, died 1995

Margaret White worked at educational publisher Prentice Hall in New Jersey in the early 1960's, which is where she likely befriended Malliol. They remained close friends for a number of years. Malliol lived with White for a time in the 1980's while finishing his novel Slave; she typed the manuscript for him.

The collection consists primarily of incoming letters, both personal and professional in nature, from American author William Malliol (William T. McInenly) to close friend Margaret White, though some letters from White are also included.

Gift of Lise MacDonald, the daughter of Margaret White, in 2018. AM 2019-6.
