Series Description and Inventory

Introduction

The Christopher Morley Collection was assembled by Mrs. Elisabeth Post Morrow (1892-1992) of Brooklyn and the hamlet of Brookhaven, Long Island, N.Y. and was donated by the Post-Morrow Foundation, Inc. in 1992.

Materials include manuscripts, printed ephemera, dealer and trade catalogs and periodicals including contributions by and about Christopher Morley. Copyright interest to works by Christopher Morley belong to the Morley estate, which should be contacted for permission to quote and publish.

Christopher Morley (5 May 1890–28 March 1957) was an American journalist, novelist, and poet. He was born in Haverford, Pennsylvania. Morley studied at Haverford College, where he obtained a BA in 1910. He was a Rhodes Scholar at New College, Oxford from 1910 to 1913. Morley got his start as a newspaper reporter and then columnist for various publications in Philadelphia and later New York City.

He became was one of the founders and long-time staff member of the Saturday Review of Literature. Out of enthusiasm for the Sherlock Holmes stories, he became the founder of the Baker Street Irregulars and wrote the introduction to the standard omnibus edition of The Complete Sherlock Holmes. In 1936 he was appointed to revise and enlarge Bartlett's Familiar Quotations (1937, 1948).

Author of more than 50 books of poetry and novels, Morley is probably best known as the author of Kitty Foyle (1939), which was made into an Academy Award-winning movie. Other well known works include Thunder on the Left (1925), and The Haunted Bookshop (1919) and Parnassus on Wheels (1917), his two semi-biographical novels of a fictional bookseller.

In later years he lived in Nassau County, Long Island, commuting to the city on the Long Island Rail Road, about which he wrote affectionately. His studio, the Knothole, is preserved as a point of interest in Christopher Morley Park, Roslyn, NY.
