Biographical / Historical

Perry was a college professor, editor, and author. He taught English at Williams (1886-1893), Princeton (1893-1900), and Harvard (1907-1930). From 1899 to 1909 he was editor of The Atlantic Monthly.


Arranged alphabetically by correspondent.

Scope and Contents

Chiefly letters to Bliss Perry, the bulk of which date from the years when he edited The Atlantic Monthly. They relate mainly to editorial matters but also include comments on Perry's own writings. The Atlantic Monthly material does not represent all of Perry's editorial correspondence but seems to be a selection of the more prominent contributors.
