Weldon Kees Papers and Archives

Biographical Sketch

H. Weldon Kees (1914-1955?), writer, poet, composer, musician, filmmaker and artist, was born in Beatrice, Nebraska. Educated at Doane College, the University of Missouri, and the University of Chicago, he finally received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Nebraska in 1935. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in library science from the University of Denver in 1939. While in Nebraska, Kees worked for the Federal Writers’ Project, contributing short stories and articles. In the late 1930s, Kees married Ann Swan and moved to Denver, Colorado. There he worked for the Denver Public Library and as Acting Director of the Bibliographic Center for Research, Rocky Mountain Region. In 1943 Kees moved to New York, where he wrote for Paramount News, Time Magazine, and for six months served as Art Critic for The Nation.

In 1949 Kees founded Forum 49 in Provincetown, Massachusetts. This group sought to bring together all the arts with artists such as Hans Hoffman, Robert Motherwell, Adolph Gottlieb and Elaine de Kooning. At the same time, Kees’ paintings were included in a series of shows at the Peridot Gallery in New York City, and his poetry appeared in respected literary journals and magazines, most notably the Robinson poems in the New Yorker. Eventually the Kees tired of New York and the couple moved to San Francisco, where Weldon entered the film and music scene. He composed the music for James Broughton’s film “The Adventures of Jimmy” (1951). He collaborated on films with anthropologist Gregory Bateson, and produced his own experimental films, such as “Hotel Apex.” With associate and friend Michael Grieg, Kees co-produced both “Behind the Movie Camera,” a weekly radio program for KPFA, Berkeley; and “The Poet’s Follies,” (1955) a vaudeville program. In July 1955, Kees disappeared, leaving his car on the Golden Gate Bridge.

History of the Collection

Mrs. Sarah Kees, Weldon Kees’ mother, gave the Weldon Kees Papers to Lincoln City Libraries in 1963. The Papers include letters, manuscripts, photographs, audiotape, and films. Since 1963 the Kees Papers have been joined by two closely related collections, the Kees-Getty Correspondence, donated in 1978 by Norris Getty, and the Robert Knoll Research Files, given to the Heritage Room by Robert Knoll in 1986. The three collections, while physically separate, have come to be known together as the Kees Archives.

Loren Eiseley Summary and Holdings

Biographical sketch

Nebraskan Loren Eiseley (1907-1977), an anthropologist who taught for many years at the University of Pennsylvania, became one of the most admired nature writers of the twentieth century. Drawn to literary pursuits as well as the sciences, Eiseley made of himself a kind of poet-scientist. As an undergraduate at the University of Nebraska he contributed poetry and essays to Prairie Schooner and became one of the journal’s student editors. His career as an anthropologist took him from the University of Kansas, to Oberlin College, to the University of Pennsylvania where he was Benjamin Franklin Professor of Anthropology and the History of Science. His book Darwin’s Century was considered a brilliant contribution to our understanding of the origins of Darwinism that invited its broad audience to think about the science in cultural context. Eiseley’s efforts, and his example, helped establish History of Science as a professional field of study at American universities.

Much of Eiseley’s writing on anthropological subjects had a strong meditative and even introspective cast. He was a powerful essayist who gained an ever widening audience for his ability to show us how much our investigations of the natural world can teach us about human insight and human limitations. His writing gained him admirers and correspondents as diverse as the science fiction writer Ray Bradbury, the poet W.H. Auden, and the cultural critic Lewis Mumford. The collections document the personal and professional life of this influential public intellectual.
