Tyler Papers

The Papers of Royall Tyler, 1902–1967 (hereafter cited as the Tyler Papers) consists of the correspondence between Mildred Barnes Bliss and/or Robert Woods Bliss and Elisina Tyler, Royall Tyler, Bettine Tyler, and/or William Royall Tyler, at Harvard University Archives in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Tyler Papers (HUGFP 38.6) were a 1977 and 1979 gift of William Royall Tyler, the son of Royall Tyler and the former director of the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection in Washington, D.C. Sometime before her death in January 1969, Mildred Bliss had given William Royall Tyler the correspondence she had received from his father and mother and from him and his wife. In the 1970s, William Royall Tyler and the historian Walter Muir Whitehill prepared an annotated typescript of this correspondence (hereafter cited as Typescript), which is also in the Tyler Papers.
