Summary
Collection primarily consists of manuscripts (published and unpublished) written by Helen Hinckley Jones and her students/associates. These manuscripts include fictional and historical novels, short stories, articles, biographical and autobiographical accounts, academic work, and official name work for several state libraries. Three other types of materials relating to these manuscripts are included; correspondence, promotional, and research/academic. Most of the correspondence consists of letters to/from publishing houses and literary agents. Among the agents is Mr. Larry Sternig, who appeared to be Mrs. Jones' foremost representative. The remainder of the letters are from Mrs. Jones' family and personal friends, with some fanmail and holiday greetings. The promotional materials deal with Mrs. Jones' literary career. They consist of newspapers articles, flyers for literary events/gatherings, awards for literary or academic acclaim, and reviews of Mrs. Jones' published works. The research and academic materials is mostly background work for Mrs. Jones' historical novels, but there is also a great amount of teaching materials acquired over years of teaching in Pasadena. Arguably the most unique items in this collection are those dealing with the three books Mrs. Jones co-created with Najmeh Najafi. These include photographs, newspaper clippings dealing with Iran, and reports on the social conditions. These accumulate in Ms. Najafi's social work and her Persian Project
