Although this body materials spans more than a century, the bulk of the materials document Lowell's writings as a poet, playwright, and translator during the last seven years of his life. Heavily edited drafts of poems published in The Dolphin, Lizzie and Harriet, History, and Day by Day illustrate Lowell's propensity for revision. The collection also includes photographs, medical files, and legal papers that provide biographical information about Lowell's early and later life. In addition, the collection contains letters and manuscripts from several of Lowell's contemporaries.
