Series 2: Correspondence , 1946-2011
14.7 Linear feet
Boxes 1-15

Friedman's correspondence is both professional and personal in nature, occasionally combining both spheres. Many letters are addressed to Bob (as Friedman was known to family and friends). Some are addressed to the couple and a few are to Abby.
This series is alphabetized by correspondent. Filing is inconsistent - some letters may be found under the correspondent's name while other portions of the exchanged are filed by business name. Folders for individual correspondents contain five or more letters. Correspondence with individuals or organizations represented by fewer than five letters is grouped alphabetically in folders titled "miscellaneous." Additional correspondence is found among the subject files (Series 6).

Transcripts of interviews conducted by C. Darrow with B. H. Friedman, his daughter and wife for the Yale University School of Medicine "Adult Development Study" are photocopies. Accompanying the interviews is a preliminary version of "Time of Transition: The Male in the Mid-Life Decade," an article by Maggie Scarf for the June 1972 issue of McCall's Magazine. A note by Friedman indicates "Charlotte Darrow gave me this material some of which was used in her thinly disguised 'portrait' of me in The Seasons of a Man's Life, Knopf 1978."

Boxes 16-23

Writings by B. H. Friedman include novels, plays, short stories, poems, articles, monographs, and criticism. Over time, many pieces were reworked. Sometimes titles changed or were reused; occasionally, prose became a play or short stories were greatly expanded. Among the published versions of Friedman's writings are two books and some short stories with no corresponding manuscript material. This series also includes video and sound recordings of lectures by Friedman and panel discussions in which he participated. Writings by other authors include the text of a lecture presented by John Cage at Cal Tech.
Friedman's writings are arranged in three categories - manuscripts and drafts, published versions, lectures and panel discussions - and within each group are alphabetized by title. Writings by others are arranged alphabetically by author. Subject files (Series 6) contain additional writings by Friedman and others.
