B. Autobiography

The seven boxes in this series contain manuscript notes, tapes, typed tape transcriptions, and typescripts prepared by Keats for his autobiography. Incidents throughout his life are covered with special attention to his childhood, his relationship with parents and brother and sister, how he began his artistic career, discussion of his life in Paris, descriptions of his various female friends, winning of the Caldecott Medal, and discussion of his relationship with Akira and his mother. The typescripts are incomplete and the autobiography was never published.
