The manuscript component of the Todd Collection consists of handwritten and typescript drafts of plays, film treatments, novels, short stories, poetry, and essays. This material was acquired from numerous sources over the course of 30 years. Some of the manuscripts are in the punch-bound blue wrappers of the Liebling-Wood Agency; many others, however, are in a more raw stage of development—typewritten, with numerous revisions, or handwritten, scrawled on scraps of paper or hotel stationery. Some manuscripts are accompanied by related correspondence, such as a typescript dialogue and continuity for the film Baby Doll, which is complemented with correspondence from Elia Kazan. The material is organized into four series, with links to finding aids provided for each.
