Writings

Collection Creator:
Meiere, M. Hildreth, d. 1961  Search this
Extent:
1.3 Linear feet (Boxes 4-5)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1904-1960
Scope and Contents:
Writings include thirteen diaries spanning her childhood and later travels in the 1920s-1950s, essays and talks, poetry and translations of Spanish poetry by Meière, two novel length unpublished prose manuscripts, and travelogues. Early diaries include many enclosures, including photographs, drawings, calling cards, letters, and other keepsakes. A file of typescript memos and reports document Meière's involvement with the National Society of Mural Painters' Coordinating Committee during a turbulent period preceding the 1939 World's Fair. Essays and talks concern Meière's work on the 1939 New York World's Fair, with the NYC WPA Art Project, and reflections on women in art careers, mural painting, and ecclesiastical art. Meière's own poetry, as well as her translations of Spanish poets Gustavo Adolfo Becquer and others, are found in manuscript and typescript form. Enclosures found in an early handwritten volume of poetry called "Poems (so-called)" include a letter recounting the dissolution of her marriage in 1930. Two prose manuscripts include Battery Brown, written after the first World War, and a work Meière called her "Spanish Civil War Novella," which is largely non-fiction documenting her experience with the Spanish war relief effort and her political stance on the conflict.

Travelogues, handwritten and typewritten, are found for her trips to Constantinople and the Balkans, her trip to Russia in 1936, and her "Grand Tour" of 1952-1953, which began in Europe and Great Britain during Queen Elizabeth II's coronation, and moved through India, Indonesia, Australia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and ended in Taormina, Sicily. The Grand Tour is documented in a lengthy typescript travelogue. Also found is a short essay on the politics of the Arab Israeli conflict written after her trip to the Middle East in 1954.
Arrangement:
Arrangement is alphabetical by type of material. Additional material on Spanish Civil War is found in Series 4, Civilian War Service Records, and additional material related to Meiere's travels is found in Series 2, Correspondence and Series 5, Travel Records.
