Middlebury College acquires archival materials of Ernest Hemingway and the Hemingway Family

    The Middlebury College Julian W. Abernethy Collection of American Literature has acquired the Ernest Hemingway and Hemingway Family Collection. The archive includes family correspondence, journals, more than 1400 original letters and 151 scans of Hemingway’s letters. The material dates from the mid-19th century to the author’s death in 1961.
    Items of special interest include several diaries dating from the 1850s; Civil War letters belonging to the author’s grandfather, Anson Hemingway; and love letters of his parents, Clarence and Grace Hall Hemingway, prior to and after their marriage. A literary highlight of the collection is a carbon copy of a unique version of the first chapter of “The Sun Also Rises.” The chapter was eventually deleted by Hemingway at the suggestion of his friend F. Scott Fitzgerald.
