F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Handwritten Ledger Digitized and Now Online From University of South Carolina Libraries

From the AP:

Researchers from the University of South Carolina’s Thomas Cooper Library put a digital version of the famed author’s handwritten financial ledger on their website last week, making it available for the first time for all readers, students and scholars.

“This is a record of everything Fitzgerald wrote, and what he did with it, in his own hand,” said Elizabeth Sudduth, director of the Ernest F. Hollings Library and Rare Books Collection.


The library’s Fitzgerald collection is considered the world’s most comprehensive, with more than 3,000 publications, manuscripts, letters, book editions, screenplays and memorabilia. It also includes Fitzgerald’s walking stick, briefcase and an engraved silver flask his wife gave him in 1918.
