The oral history tapes and transcriptions, together with the correspondence, that make up this collection were created by
Peter A. Brazeau during the course of his research for his oral history biography of Wallace Stevens: Parts of a World: Wallace Stevens Remembered (New York: Random House, 1983). Brazeau, a member of the English Department faculty of St. Joseph College, wrote to and interviewed
dozens of Stevens' relatives, friends, neighbors, employees, business colleagues, and literary associates and acquaintances
in order to elicit their recollections about the poet.
