Andrew Nelson Lytle Papers (Addition)
The Papers of Andrew Nelson Lytle (1902-1995), author, educator, editor, critic and Vanderbilt University alumnus (B.A. 1925), were acquired in 1998 from Mr. Lytle's
son-in-law and literary executor, George Chamberlain. A preliminary organization was performed on the collection in 1998, but until now had not been fully processed.
The Andrew Nelson Lytle Papers, 1853-1995, include correspondence, writings,
research materials, reviews, publicity, financial documents, photographs, family records and writings by others. The collection documents, in varying extent, Lytle's
literary and academic careers, his strong family ties, his relationship with his beloved wife and children, and his friendships which include many fellow writers, academic
colleagues and devoted students. There is also a substantial amount of papers chronicling the Lytle, Nelson and related families of Tennessee.
