Scope and Content

The papers in this collection are evidence of the eclectic interests and significant output of the Austrian emigré writer, Fritz Gross. These volumes of original typescript writings include numerous short dramas; anthologies of poetry; essays on a wide variety of subjects and biographical sketches of famous people.

System of Arrangement

For the most part each volume comprises a collection of discrete items which have been bound together in alphabetical sequence. The volumes themselves were accessioned in alphabetical order. For this reason and the fact that date information is rarely explicit, the original order of deposit has largely been retained.
