Save to active project

In an interview with Timothy Wilson in The Observer, February 20, 1972, p. 21, Valerie Eliot explained the best defense against innuendoes and misconceptions about Eliot in recent reviews and unofficial biographies would be an authoritative life. The definitive biography, however, must await Mrs. Eliot's publication of her late husband's letters. In correspondence, she says the first volume of Eliot's letters should appear in 1984 and that, although no official biographer has yet been appointed, she has someone in mind. Mrs. Eliot describes the necessary qualifications for a biographer in The Observer interview cited above.
For permission to examine unpublished correspondence of Eliot, I wish to express my thanks to Mrs. Valerie Eliot and the following libraries: the Houghton Library of Harvard University; Princeton University Library; Cornell University Library; Lockwood Memorial Library of the State University of New York at Buffalo, and the Humanities Research Center of the University of Texas at Austin.
