Biographical Note

Seymour Lawrence, born on February 11, 1926, first became interested in publishing while attending Harvard University. From 1945 to 1953 Lawrence was an editor and publisher of Wake, a Harvard literary journal.

Following his graduation from Harvard, Lawrence pursued a publishing career in Boston. From 1952 to 1954 he worked as special assistant to the editor at the Atlantic Monthly. In 1954 Lawrence moved to the Atlantic Monthly Press, and a year later became the Press's director and editor-in-chief. Lawrence left this position in 1964 after arguing unsuccessfully for unexpurgated publication of J.P. Donleavy's "A Singular Man."

Lawrence's next position was at Alfred A. Knopf in New York, where he became editorial vice president. Discouraged by the weekly commute to New York, Lawrence started his own publishing house in Boston in 1965.

With the creation of Seymour Lawrence, Inc., Lawrence and his wife, Merloyd, became independent publishers. The Lawrences contacted authors and developed their own list of books, but they published in association with a large New York publishing house, Dell, and its hardcover division, Delacorte. Dell and Delacorte financed production, promotion, and distribution in return for a share of the profits.

Lawrence first contacted Kurt Vonnegut in 1966. Vonnegut, whose then current book had sold only 1,500 copies, did not have a regular hardback publisher. By January 30, 1967, he had signed a three book contract with Seymour Lawrence, Inc. Lawrence served as Vonnegut's editor and publisher for over twenty years.

During their association, Lawrence maintained a non-interference policy and functioned more as a friend than an editor to Vonnegut. Their years of correspondence reveal a relationship characterized by humor, mutual support, and honesty. Lawrence remained Vonnegut's editor until the publication of Bluebeard in 1987.

After a brief association with Dutton, Lawrence moved his imprint to Houghton Mifflin in February 1988. As of November 1990, Lawrence continues his career as an independent publisher, providing an essential link between large publishing houses and his writers.

Scope and Content Note

Spanning the years 1966 to 1983, the Seymour Lawrence Papers contain the publishing and promotional files maintained by Seymour Lawrence as Kurt Vonnegut's editor and publisher. Consisting of 3.5 linear feet of files, the material includes correspondence between Vonnegut and Lawrence, as well as manuscripts of several speeches and essays written by Vonnegut. The files also contain photographs of Vonnegut, a self-portrait painted by Vonnegut, and publication and promotional materials toward ten of Vonnegut's books.

The papers document the publication of the following books: Welcome to the Monkey House (1968), Slaughterhouse-Five (1969), Happy Birthday, Wanda June (1971), Between Time and Timbuktu or Prometheus-5 (1972), Breakfast of Champions (1973), Wampeters, Foma and Granfalloons (1975), Slapstick (1976), Jailbird (1979), Palm Sunday (1981), and Deadeye Dick (1982).

Because most of the materials in these files are arranged in chronological order, the list of titles and dates in the previous paragraph may serve as a guideline to finding information related to particular titles written by Vonnegut.

Arrangement Note

Seymour Lawrence's original files were arranged chronologically under two headings: "Vonnegut" (which included professional papers and correspondence) and "Vonnegut Promotion." Lawrence also maintained separate files in which he kept Vonnegut manuscripts and information on special subjects ("Vonnegut and the Soviet Union," "Vonnegut Dinners," and "Vonnegut Europe Trip.") The arrangement of Seymour Lawrence's papers follow, as closely as possible, Lawrence's original filing system.

Series I is titled Professional Papers and consists of correspondence and business materials toward the publication of Vonnegut's books. Series II is titled Promotional Files and contains material toward the promotion of each of the books and of Vonnegut in general. Series III is titled Vonnegut Works and includes manuscripts of essays and speeches by Vonnegut, as well as material toward book jackets and preliminary matter for books by Vonnegut. Series IV is titled Promotional Events and consists of correspondence, itineraries, photographs, and other material related to special dinners and trips involving Kurt Vonnegut. Series V consists of photographs of Vonnegut. Series VI consists of Vonnegut's painted self-portrait. Some material is housed in the oversize section, including clippings, tear sheets, posters, and advertisements. The material in Series I, II, IV, and VII are arranged chronologically. The material in Series III is arranged alphabetically by title of the book.
