Scope and Content
The collection contains letters and telegrams from Aldous Huxley's literary agents--James B. Pinker and Sons--to various persons,
periodicals, etc. pertaining to Mr. Huxley's writings. These date from 1922 to 1934. This collection is not complete; for
instance there are letters for May, 1931, the only correspondence for 1931. The literary agents had offices in New York City
where Eric Pinker was in charge, and in London, where Ralph Pinker was in charge. The correspondence is mainly from them to
various persons, or agencies, as for example Chatto and Windus in London.
The collection also contains
- excerpts from Christopher Wren

- typescript of Success (scenario)
