Biographical/Historical Note
Dorothy (Dudley) Harvey was born in Chicago in 1884. After graduating from Bryn Mawr in 1905 she returned to the Midwest. She and her sister Helen Dudley were part of the literary set around Harriet Monroe and Mrs. Harvey published poems and reviews in Poetry: A Magazine of Verse beginning in 1915 and throughout the twenties. It was during this period that Mrs. Harvey became acquainted with many of the correspondents represented in the collection: Carl Sandburg, Edgar Lee Masters and Sherwood Anderson. Other periodicals in which work by Mrs. Harvey appeared were Dial, American Magazine of Art and Nation. In 1932 she published a biography of Theodore Dreiser, Forgotten Frontiers: Dreiser and the Land of the Free. Many of the letters in this collection contain the reactions of Mrs. Harvey's correspondents to her book. For many years Mrs. Harvey lived in France with her husband (Henry Blodgett Harvey) and two children. She died in Paris in 1962.

Scope and Content
The largest segment of the correspondence is from Theodore Dreiser consisting of 19 letters written between 1917 and 1942. Also included are typescripts of four Dreiser poems. The Carl Sandburg material consists of 9 letters, 11 typescripts (9 poems, 2 childrens' stories), one manuscript poem, and a signed printed broadside. Other groups of correspondence include those from Alfred Stieglitz (5 letters), Sherwood Anderson (6 letters), Edgar Lee Masters (5 letters), and Harriet Monroe (4 letters). All the letters have been indexed.
