Series VII: Files Used for Autobiography, 1936-2011

This series was acquired shortly after Rosset's passing and contains his working files for his intended autobiography, The Subject is Left-Handed. Included here are background materials on Rosset, drafts of chapters, ephemera, photographs, audio-visual in various media formats, and correspondence. The folder titles have been retained but the files have been arranged in alphabetical order.

External users and Columbia affiliates may view materials on-site at RBML. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only Columbia affiliates may view materials on-site at Avery, Starr, and Burke.
