The Ernest Hemingway Collection was purchased in the early 1970s from C. E. Frazer Clark, Jr., and various other sources. C. E. Frazer Clark, Jr. (1925-2001), a marketing executive, began amassing a Hemingway collection in the 1960s. In the 1970s, Clark sold the bulk of his Hemingway collection to the University of Maryland. The Ernest Hemingway Collection contains serials, correspondence, manuscripts, scripts, proofs, and clippings. A large portion of the collection consists of serials that include stories and nonfiction written by and about Hemingway. It also includes some original correspondence to and from Hemingway. In addition, there are manuscripts and proofs of Hemingway's work and biographies of Hemingway. This collection also includes press releases, posters and other materials relating to movie adaptations of Hemingway's works. The collection spans the period from 1916 to 1977, with the majority of the materials falling between 1922 and 1961.
