Extent: 7.7 linear ft.
Contents: Correspondence; typescript and autograph drafts of poetry, fiction, and prose; photographs; photocopies; clippings; magazines; newspapers; artwork; page proofs; notes; and comic books.
Arrangement: The first three subseries: Series III.1 Reed as subject, Series III.2. Manuscripts which include references to Reed, and Series III.3 Miscellaneous writing by others are each arranged in alphabetical order by the author's name. Series III.4 Comic books, cartoons, and artwork by others is divided into three folders and arranged in chronological order. Series III.5 Clippings or printed material written by others in arranged by rough chronological order.
Reed's work provoked many kinds of responses, and Series III. Works by Others, documents these various responses, ranging from academic writing on Reed's work and career to brief mentions of his work and opinions in articles on other subjects. The material is of two main kinds: manuscripts and clippings. However, there are several pieces of original artwork, including drawings or caricatures of Reed in the series.
Manuscripts were sent to Reed for comment by writers working on chapters in literary texts and dissertations which discuss or mention his work, and this series contains typescripts by academic scholars Henry Louis Gates, Reginald Martin, Peter Nazareth, Jerry Ward, S„mi Ludwig, and a number of others. This series also includes drafts and copies of Ishmael Reed: An Annotated Checklist, by Elizabeth and Thomas Settle. There are also some manuscripts which remain unidentified as to author or relationship to Reed. In addition, Series III includes the most comprehensive clipping files in the collection, although clippings can also be found throughout the collection with the works or events to which they refer. The clippings have been divided into two sections: clippings which include references to Reed (III.2) and those clippings or printed items which do not mention Reed (III.5).
Subseries III.4 includes a number miscellaneous items, including original artwork, several adult-oriented comic books, and Reed's collection of cartoons clipped from newspapers.
