KENNETH WALTER CAMERON COLLECTION OF MATERIAL RELATING PRIMARILY TO RALPH WALDO EMERSON, 1811-1985

 Postal card -- Ralph Waldo Emerson and home.

Vault A35, R.W. Emerson, Unit 4

 

EXTENT:  2 linear feet (two record cartons)

ORGANIZATION AND ARRANGEMENT:  Nine series: I. Bibliography; II. Biography; III. Book reviews; IV. Kenneth W. Cameron writings; V. Criticism; VI. Emerson centennial; VII. Emerson family; VIII. Emerson writings; IX. Dialogue (a Concord periodical).   

BIOGRAPHY:  Kenneth Walter Cameron was born October 12, 1908 in Martins Ferry, Ohio, eldest son of Albert Ernest (1885-1938) and Zoe (1890-1957) Cameron.  Educated at West Virginia University, General Theological Seminary, and Yale University (Ph. D., 1940), he was ordained an Episcopal minister in 1935. Dr. Cameron’s academic career began as an instructor of English at North Carolina State University (1938 to 1943).  After teaching briefly at Temple University, he became Professor of Nineteenth Century Literature at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut in 1946.  A distinguished Emersonian, he was a leading authority on the American Transcendental movement and authored and edited numerous articles and books on Emerson, Thoreau, and their contemporaries.  He served as editor for both American Transcendental Quarterly and Emerson Society Quarterly. Kenneth Cameron died Feb. 8, 2006.

SCOPE AND CONTENT:  Material dating from 1811 (photocopy of an original printed item) to 1985, generated and collected by Kenneth Walter Cameron, relating primarily to the life, writings, and influence of Ralph Waldo Emerson.  The collection also includes items relating to Alcott, Thoreau, Hawthorne, Whitman, Carlyle, Melville, Wordsworth, Matthew Arnold, Orestes Brownson, Theodore Parker, Charles Sumner, Goethe, Swedenborg, Nietzsche, and George Santayana, as well as a body of criticism by Clarence Hotson.  The Emerson centennial in 1903 and the Emerson family form additional subject strengths.  A significant proportion of the collection consists of items edited or written by Professor Cameron.

The bulk of the collection is made up of articles extracted from periodicals and newspapers, or provided in reprint, offprint, photocopy, or transcript, and of chapters or sections of books in original, photocopied, or transcribed form.  The collection also includes bibliographies, exhibition catalogs, auction lists, book reviews, and proof sheets, among other types of materials. 

SOURCE OF ACQUISITION: Gift of Kenneth Walter Cameron (date of donation unrecorded).

OVERLAPPING HOLDINGS: The extensive Ralph Waldo Emerson section of the CFPL’s Concord Pamphlet Collection includes much material similar to, and in some instances overlapping with, that in the Cameron Collection.  The library also holds complete runs of American Transcendental Quarterly (ATQ), Emerson Society Quarterly (ESQ), some of the other periodicals from which items in the collection have been extracted, most of Kenneth Cameron’s published compilations, and (in the Concord Authors Collection) many of the books represented by extracted chapters or sections in the Cameron Collection.  Search the data base of the Minuteman Library Network by author, title, subject, or keyword for similar and overlapping holdings in other CFPL collections. 

PROCESSING NOTES:  Processed by Sheryl Peters; finding aid completed Feb. 2006; preliminary processing by Bette Aschaffenburg.

In the processing of this collection, only a very limited attempt has been made to supply bibliographical information missing from periodical articles and other extracted items, and to verify information provided by Kenneth Cameron. 

Page numbers for periodical articles have not been included consistently.
