The papers include personal and business correspondence, manuscripts and published articles, and personal documents and photographs,
and pencil drawings dating from Heinrich Mann's years in France, 1933-1940 and Los Angeles, 1940-1950.
Heinrich Mann (1871-1950), one of the foremost German writers of the twentieth century, lived almost penniless and seemingly
forgotten in Los Angeles for nearly a decade before his death in 1950. Heinrich Mann was the elder brother of Nobel Prize
winning novelist Thomas Mann. Despite his name and literary stature, Heinrich Mann remained virtually unknown in this country.
By contrast, in pre-Hitler Germany, Heinrich had been both respected by fellow writers and popular with readers, perhaps even
more so than his brother.
