In early 2001, after long and deliberate negotiations, THNOC successfully completed the acquisition of the largest private collection of Tennessee Williams materials. The collection was the lifelong labor of love for collector Fred W. Todd. Over 45 years of collecting, Mr. Todd amassed a diverse assemblage of books, unpublished manuscripts, playbills, letters, photographs, and much more. The collection has been divided into six groups, with finding aids provided for each.


Manuscripts

Correspondence

Financial and Legal Documents

Theater
