Lerona Rosamond Morris papers, 1928-1944

Identifier: 1990-006

Scope and Contents

The Lerona Rosamond Morris papers are organized into 3 series: Series 1: Correspondence consists primarily of promotional material from various publishing companies for whom Morris sold magazine subscriptions. Also included is a letter from Morris’ sister, Lillie, and a school paper written by Morris’ son, Harold. The correspondence dates from 1932-1938. 

Series 2: Writings consists primarily of manuscript material relating to Morris’ historical novel, When East Goes West. The remaining manuscript material consists of autograph and typescript fragments by Morris, autograph and typescript articles by contributing authors, and material excised from magazines and newspapers, for three historical works: Oklahoma. The Land of Opportunity; Oklahoma. Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow; and Tulsa,The City Beautiful.

Series 3: Miscellaneous consists of unidentified notes, advertisements, press cuttings of general subject matter, and sample copies of magazines which (according to Fannie Brownlee Misch) Morris sold subscriptions to. It is possible that Morris may have written ad copy and/or articles for magazines and newspapers such as those found within the miscellaneous material, but there is no substantial evidence of this in this collection.
