Summary:This series consists of notes and drafts of an autobiography written by Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, as well as the notes and drafts of Djuna Barnes on the autobiography. Beginning in 1932, Barnes attempted to construct a biography of von Freytag-Loringhoven (based on a draft of an autobiography and miscellaneous notes and letters she had sent to Barnes), but the project was dropped after a series of false starts. Barnes's notes, draft, and typescript of the autobiography are followed by the holograph manuscript, drafts, and notes of von Freytag-Loringhoven.
