Susan Hale

Document Type



The Susan Hale Collection in Special Collections at the University of Rhode Island mostly contains letters written by Miss Hale to Caroline Atkinson, and to her siblings, Lucretia, Edward, Charles, Nathan, and are in either carbon typescript or manuscript. In 1919, Caroline P. Atkinson published The Letters of Susan Hale. The collection given to the University of Rhode Island seems to be letters collected by Miss Atkinson in preparation for her book, but do not seem to be included in that book. The carbon typescripts were probably transcribed by Miss Atkinson and are typed from manuscript copies already in this collection.
