Beverly Lowry Papers, 1976-1982 | University of Houston Libraries
These original materials are available in Special Collections.
The bulk of material in this collection consists of typescript drafts of three of Beverly Lowry's novels: Come Back, Lolly Ray; Emma Blue; and Daddy's Girl. The drafts include both original and photocopied typescript, with corrections in the author's hand. Some of the drafts are copyedited.
The collection includes preparatory materials for the three novels such as lists of possible titles, outlines and character notes, drawings, and photographs. A small amount of correspondence received by Beverly Lowry from her agent and her editor is included. The papers also include galley proofs and page proofs for the three novels.
The Beverly Lowry Collection is arranged in two series - Writings and Other Materials - and is housed in five boxes and one oversize box.
