Biography:

Carlton and Territa Lowenberg spent years of their lives avidly collecting materials that relate to the poet Emily Dickinson. Their enthusiasm for Dickinson and her work assisted in the creation of the collection. The Lowenbergs collaborated with Carla L. Brown to create the work Emily Dickinson's Textbooks. Carlton Lowenberg also wrote Musicians Wrestle Everywhere: Emily Dickinson and Music.

Scope and Content:

The Lowenberg Collection consists of materials relating to the life and literary work of Emily Dickinson. It includes selected copies of manuscripts, pamphlets, periodicals, newspaper clippings, and items dealing with Dickinson's life, her family, friends, associates, and mentors. Many of the items are associated with Dickinson's community and the time period in which she lived. Materials in the collection also document the Lowenberg's work in gathering the collection together. The Lowenberg Collection has been arranged alphabetically by the title of a work, journal, or published document, an individual name, or a place name, and by the type of item. A wide variety of materials are often represented within this arrangement. There are no original materials created by Dickinson in the collection.

Within the correspondence are thirty letters written by Thomas Wentworth Higginson (1823-1911) that range from the year 1869 until 1910. The letters were sent to Higginson's friends and acquaintances, such as Marion Talbot and James Redpath. The letters discuss Higginson's activities with various clubs or associations and his work with women colleagues on reforms.
