Emory University Libraries Acquires Bram Stoker Collection

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Things seem a little spookier at the Emory Library, that’s because Dracula is in the house.

The immortal bloodsucker is prominently displayed in an exhibit at the main entrance, celebrating the acquisition of a treasure trove of papers from his creator, Bram Stoker.

This week Emory University announced the acquisition of the Stoker collection, which arrived on campus just in time for Halloween.

The collection comprises nearly 4,000 items connected to the Irish author, including correspondence, unpublished manuscripts, playbills, first edition translations of “Dracula” and perhaps 1,500 books. It will become part of Emory’s extensive literary holdings, housed in the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library.
