Scope and content
Sub-series consists of eighty files related to business dealings with publishers that Nouwen dealt with on an occasional basis. These files relate primarily to the publication of articles, requests to reprint passages from previously published books, articles and cassettes, requests for endorsements of books by other authors, and translation rights. In addition to business and personal correspondence, the files may contain business documents such as draft manuscripts of books, articles, endorsements and introductions, book cover mockups, signed contracts, royalty statements and publishers' catalogues. Of special note are the St. Anthony Press files which contain draft copies of the Jesus and Mary book and the homilies "Mary, Mother of the Suffering Jesus" and "Mary, Mother of the Priests", as well as the files "Novalis" which contain drafts of Nouwen's 1992 meditations for Passion Sunday and the First Sunday in Advent.
