Authors, American -- 20th century
Found in 2 Collections and/or Records:
These papers preserve fragments from the short life of a New Orleans poet who was involved with Double Dealer; they also preserve fragments of his family's history. Much of the material in these papers is dated between 1913 and 1924, the years of Basil Thompson's literary activity. Thompson's childhood in the early 1900s also provided considerable material. Several items are dated from the nineteenth century, the earliest being the 1861 diary of Basil Thompson's grandfather.
