Andrew Nelson Lytle Papers (1988 Addition)
The Papers of Andrew Nelson Lytle (1902-1995), author, educator, editor, critic and Vanderbilt University alumnus (B.A. 1925), were acquired from Mr. Lytle in three
segments. The first and largest of these segments arrived in 1968, and a smaller group of items appeared later in 1968. The third portion was not acquired until 1988.
This portion of the collection was acquired in 1988 from Mr. Lytle. A preliminary organization was performed on the collection in 1988, but until now had not been fully
processed. This collection consists of copied material and is valued for its informational content such as extensive letters from Lytle's wife, Edna Langdon Barker Lytle.
Included within this collection is correspondence, writings, writings about Lytle, family documents, and financial documents.
