Richard E. Haymaker papers

Identifier: Mss 0034-092

Collection Overview

The papers include letters to Haymaker from Alexander Lenard and Takusi Tanahasi. Lenard was a Hungarian physician and author who taught Latin and Greek at the College of Charleston for two years from 1967-1969. He is best known as the author of "Winnie ille Pu." His nine letters are mainly about literature, mutual friends in Charleston, and Brazil, where he lived before and after residing in Charleston. He mentions that his last work was a short story set in Charleston about Edgar Allen Poe's character Anabelle Lee. It had been accepted for publication in Hungarian and German. Lenard died before translating it into English. His file includes a 1967 offprint entitled "Living Latin." Tanahasi taught literature in Tokyo and wrote six letters and a card to Haymaker about his admiration for W.H. Hudson, his plans to translate works by Hudson into Japanese, and his intention to emigrate to England. Enclosed were the first two newsletters of the Noise Abatement Society in Tokyo (1970-1971).
