Freeman, Arthur (1938- )
Scope:
The Arthur Freeman collection includes manuscripts, correspondence, printed materials, and miscellaneous items.

Collected manuscripts include Thomas Kyd, Appolonian Poems, and Estrangements -- all of which contain holograph revisions. An unidentified holograph manuscript, composed in Latin, is also present.

Correspondence in the collection (1772-1910) consists of letters from Wesleyan and independent nonconformist clergymen, including numerous Presidents of the Wesleyan Methodist conference. Letters from Hugh Price Hughes, Samuel Jackson, and Jacob Stanley are mounted with unrelated portraits. Also collected is a scrapbook of letters from Methodists.

The collection includes galley proofs for works such as Henry VI Part Two, Thomas Kyd, Izmir, and "The Fatal Vesper and the Doleful Evensong: Claim-Jumping in 1623." Many include Freeman's signature, along with a holograph note. Book lists, pamphlets, and meeting announcements constitute additional printed materials. Of particular interest are clippings regarding Charles Dickens' obituary, notices of books, manuscripts, and critiques.

The collection also includes an 1822 budget statement, religious remarks, and miscellaneous book gifts.
