From the NY Times: Commentary Magazine Archive Given to University of Texas
That letter is part of a collection of documents and correspondence that Commentary has donated to the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas, Austin. The archive, which spans 1945 to 1995, includes letters by and to Bernard Malamud, Norman Mailer, Amos Oz, Elie Wiesel and Isaac Bashevis Singer, as well as the revisions of essays written for the magazine by George Orwell, Pearl S. Buck and Jean-Paul Sartre.
“The early decades of Commentary, especially its first 25 years, should prove to be an invaluable resource for the social and intellectual history of the postwar years and the gradual assimilation of Jews into the mainstream of American life,” said Morris Dickstein, a cultural historian and professor of English at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, in a statement.
