Content on this LibGuide was drawn from a variety of sources, including finding aids created by USC Libraries for the collections described. These finding aids are frequently the product of collaborative effort and revised over time.
The Department of Special Collections is the home for many archival collections containing materials related to 19th and 20th century American literature. Most of the people or organizations whose papers or records are held at USC either lived or worked at some point in California; many, specifically in Los Angeles.
The tabs in this libguide will take you to information about specific collections in American literature. For information about other Special Collections American literature archives, please see the lists below.
