Stephen R. Pastore collection on Sinclair Lewis


The Pastore Collection was previously arranged by format, with periodicals, photos, papers, sound recordings, and videos all stored separately. The arrangement described here is designed to provide better thematic access to the collection and more efficient use of space. The periodicals are separated into two subseries: those featuring articles written by Lewis and those with articles written about Lewis. Likewise, other materials are listed near items of similar subject content.

The book collection is shelved together in the Special Collections room in LC call number order. The books can be searched in the library's catalog system and are not described further in this finding aid.

The non-book collection is arranged in the following series and subseries:

  • Series 1. Writings by Lewis
  • Subseries 1.1. Articles by Lewis
  • Subseries 1.2. Lewis correspondence
  • Subseries 1.3. Lewis signatures
  • Series 2. Writings and records about Lewis
  • Subseries 2.1. Articles about Lewis
  • Subseries 2.2. Bibliography by Stephen Pastore
  • Subseries 2.3. Images of Lewis
  • Series 3. Adaptations of Lewis's works
  • Subseries 3.1. Stage
  • Subseries 3.2. Screen
  • Subseries 3.3. Sound recordings
