Abstract:

Elinor Castle Nef (1894-1953) was the first wife of University of Chicago professor John U. Nef, Jr. and the daughter of a prominent Hawaiian family. She was a prolific diarist and letter writer, corresponding with many important artists and intellectuals of the twentieth century. When she was not sharing in her husband's work and travel, she devoted her time to the writing of personal letters, notes, and essays some of which were edited and published posthumously by her husband in a book entitled Letters and Notes, Volume 1 (Los Angeles: Ward Ritchie Press, 1953). Materials in the collection date between 1891 and 1966, with the bulk of the material dating between 1920 and 1953. The papers primarily document Elinor's extensive correspondence with artists and thinkers throughout the United States and Europe, and her written reflections on life in twentieth-century America.

Biographical Note

Elinor Henry Castle Nef was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on November 28, 1894 to Henry Northrup Castle (1892-1895) and Mabel Wing Castle (1864-1950). Her grandfather, Samuel Northrup Castle (1808-1894), co-founded the influential firm Castle and Cooke. Her father was the youngest of nine children and a well-regarded political leader and editor of the Honolulu Pacific Commercial Advertiser and the Hawaiian Gazette. From 1889 to 1890, Henry was married to a German woman, Frida Steckner, with whom he had a daughter, Dorothy. Frida died in 1890, and Henry married Mabel Wing in 1892. Henry and Dorothy tragically perished in the January 1895 Elbe disaster, and Henry never met his second daughter, Elinor.

Following Henry's death, Mabel Wing Castle moved with her daughter from Hawaii to Europe, returning after 1911 to the United States for Elinor to attend school in Connecticut (Wykeham Rise School for Girls) and Massachusetts. During her early years at school and then at college, she was a prolific writer, corresponding frequently with her mother, friends and relatives back in Hawaii. In 1913, Elinor came to live in Chicago with her aunt, Helen Castle (1860-1929), and uncle, philosopher George Herbert Mead (1863-1931). In 1918, she was awarded the degree of Associate in Philosophy from the University of Chicago and afterwards took up French teaching. By this time her literary talents had already been recognized by people such as Conyers Read, Robert Morss Lovett, and Robert Herrick, all of whom are represented in letters in this collection.

In September 1921, she announced her engagement to John U. Nef, Jr. (1899-1988) who also lived as a member of the Mead household. George Herbert Mead was John's guardian, following the death of his parents in 1915. Elinor and John were married in November of the same year, and immediately left for France where John was to continue his studies. The young couple lived in Europe for five years, and remained devoted Francophiles for the rest of their lives.

In 1927, John was appointed to the Department of Economics at the University of Chicago, and became Professor of Economic History at the University in 1936. From then until her death Chicago was Elinor's home. While her husband was active in the University, especially as the chairman of the Committee on Social Thought from 1945 onwards, Elinor spent much of her time helping him and acting as hostess for their many distinguished guests. She was active in many fields: clubs, play-reading groups, and other organizations including both the University Renaissance Society and the Arts Club of Chicago.

Throughout her life, Elinor was an avid correspondent and writer. The short fiction and diaries of her youth developed in adulthood into autobiographical sketches, detailed recordings of conversations, and discursive essays. Above all, Elinor was an observer. She routinely recorded and reflected upon her conversations, correspondence, and personal reactions to world events and American culture in the twentieth century.

In 1938, she began seriously to compile and edit her letters, notes, and essays, envisioning a multi-volume work titled Letters and Notes. For the next fifteen years, she worked with multiple editors including her husband, Walter Ritchie, Edward Shils, Bruce Phemister, and Philipp Fehl in this endeavor. Ever curious and committed to improvement, Elinor continually revisited, reworked, and expanded upon her writings. She published only a few essays during her lifetime, including "Los Angeles Diary," for the book Essays in Honor of Conyers Read (University of Chicago Press, 1953). The remainder of her work, including one volume of her magnum opus, Letters and Notes, was published posthumously by John U. Nef, Jr. (Los Angeles: Ward Ritchie Press, 1953). Selections from this work were later published by John in 1957 under the title In Search of the American Tradition (New York: University Publishers) to critical acclaim. Towards the end of both of their lives, Elinor also worked with her mother to record Mabel Wing Castle's memories. The result was an autobiographical booklet, My Mother's Reminiscences, privately printed by John in 1954.

Though her published work was relatively small, her unpublished output was enormous and the extent of her social influence cannot be quantified. The Nefs cultivated a wide circle of artistic and intellectual friends in the United States and abroad, many of whom remain important figures of the twentieth century. To name only a few: Nadia Boulanger, the French musician; pianist Artur Schnabel; Marc Chagall, the French painter whom Elinor addressed as Maitre; Professor William E. Dodd, who was the U. S. Ambassador to Germany for the years 1933-1937; the American historical writer Constance McLaughlin Green; Jacques Maritain, the noted Roman Catholic philosopher and Ambassador of France to the Holy See; the philosopher George Herbert Mead; the painter and art teacher Laura van Pappelendam who lived with Elinor's family for a time, and to whom Elinor wrote some of her most intimate letters, particularly during her trips abroad; the distinguished scholar and one-time president of the American Historical Association, Conyers Read; Arnold Schoenberg; Virginia Woolf, whom Elinor admired greatly; and also a host of persons associated with the University of Chicago, many of whose papers are in the University Archives. Correspondence with these individuals is found in Series II.

Elinor Castle Nef died of cancer on February 8, 1953. She is buried alongside her mother in Honolulu, Hawaii at Kawaiaha'o Church.

INVENTORY

Series I: Personal

This series is divided into four subseries:

Subseries I, General, contains official documents, records related to her engagement and marriage, biographical material, and documents pertaining to her death in 1953. Materials are organized chronologically. Of particular note is an unpublished essay by John U. Nef, Jr. about Elinor and her writing, found in Box 1, Folder 19. This essay provides insight into Elinor's character and her motives for writing.

Subseries II, Education, includes records and ephemera from Elinor's education at Wykeham Rise School for Girls and the University of Chicago.

Subseries III, Address Books, Appointment Books, Diaries, Notebooks, and Sketchbook, records Elinor's daily life from 1906 to 1952. Ephemera and correspondence found within each of these have not been removed on the assumption that a relationship exists. Of particular interest are Elinor's notebooks and related ephemera on the Genoa Conference and the Conference of Lausanne (Boxes 7 and 8). The Nefs attended the 1922 conferences as correspondents for the Des Moines Register and the Des Moines Evening Tribune. Like materials are grouped together in this subseries, and then ordered chronologically.

Subseries IV, Ephemera, mainly contains newspapers, clippings, and postcards gathered by Elinor. Additional Genoa Conference material may be found in Box 8, Folders 8 and 9.

Series II: Correspondence

This series contains outgoing and incoming mail, retained in its original alphabetical order by correspondent. Elinor appears to have maintained her letters in general files organized alphabetically, until correspondence grew large enough to merit individual files. Researchers are advised to consult both the general correspondence files at the beginning of the series, and the alphabetical listing of individual correspondents.

The letters are predominantly personal; Elinor's main concern was for the private life of the individual, and to this end she writes extensively of domestic and social activities. She preferred to use her letters as vehicles of expression for her thoughts and opinions in the search for self-knowledge and human understanding. In so doing, she sheds light on the life of contemporary American society. Her intimate knowledge of French and English cultures was an invaluable aid in her criticism of the American way of life, which she loved and yet condemned for its materialism and conventions. She admired the individual who acted according to certain codes of behavior. Above all she wanted to make people think. A discriminating book lover, she used letter-writing as a medium for literary criticism. Her deep convictions did not prevent her from approaching subjects with an inquiring mind, and in her letters she sought to broaden her outlook through contact with the opinions of others.

A large number of letters between Elinor and her mother in this series reveal their mutual affection. From Elinor's early letters to her mother one can follow the developing character of a popular schoolgirl; their mutual love is openly expressed, as indeed in all their letters, and particularly those of late 1921 and 1922 immediately after Elinor's marriage.

Series IV: Writings

This series is divided into three subseries:

Subseries I, Notes, contains fragmentary notes that straddle the border between her personal diaries and notebooks, and writing ultimately intended for a larger audience in Letters and Notes. Apart from a record of her life, the notes as a whole illustrate the growth of Elinor's love of writing. She endeavors to record every incident, conversation, experience and impression of her life. The notes capture the atmosphere of the moment and the intensity of her feelings. Her purpose in writing was to express her own immediate thoughts and to retain in writing their original spontaneity. The notes also provide an account of activities and people connected with the University of Chicago. This subseries is arranged chronologically.

Had it not been for her untimely death, she would have continued to revise and organize this material. Notes specifically earmarked by Elinor or her editors for Letters and Notes will be found in Subseries III for ease of description and access. However, researchers should review Subseries I and III with the understanding that all of Elinor's writing – correspondence, notes, essays, and drafts intended for publication – is intimately interrelated.

Subseries II, Poetry, Essays, and Short Fiction, includes Elinor's creative writing as a young girl, and later essays written by Elinor as an adult for La République Française and for The Chicago Review.

Subseries III, Books, contains material related to Letters and Notes, Los Angeles Diary, and My Mother's Reminiscences. This includes notes, manuscripts and typescripts, proofs, published monographs, and correspondence. The manuscripts and typescripts range from fragments to complete drafts. Because Elinor continually revisited and reworked her writings, researchers will find a high volume of manuscript and typescript "inserts" written by Elinor that function as corrections or addenda. The subseries is further subdivided by work:

Sub-subseries 1: Letters and Notes, Volume 1 and In Search of the American Tradition, contains reference material, notes, manuscript and typescript drafts and inserts, proofs, correspondence, and reviews related to the development and publication of these two related books. Draft materials for Letters and Notes, Volume 1 come first, and are roughly organized according to the book's final table of contents. (The manuscripts are such that frequently a single sheet will show several headings). General materials pertaining to the book's publication and distribution follow this, and are ordered chronologically. The majority of Elinor's writing about Virginia Woolf is found in this sub-subseries, although researchers should note that Elinor revisited and reworked her essays on Virginia Woolf beyond Volume 1. Elinor had written an extended essay about her in the late 1930s, but then on the advice of Edward Shils she began a new approach to the subject in 1946, and wrote an almost completely new series of essays, some of which are represented here. Elinor's delineation between her Virginia Woolf essays for Volume 1 and those for later volumes was unclear, and they have therefore been grouped together. Material for In Search of the American Tradition follows, and is ordered chronologically.

Sub-subseries 2: Letters and Notes, Volume 2, contains reference material, notes, manuscript and typescript drafts and inserts, proofs, and correspondence related to the development of the second volume of Elinor's major work. The material is arranged according to the table of contents of the book's typescript in Box 80, Folder 9, with the assumption that this was as close to a final order as Elinor ever got for this volume. Boxes 83-94 contain material considered and rejected by editor Bruce Phemister for Letters and Notes, Volume 2. This material is arranged chronologically.

Sub-subseries 3: Letters and Notes, Volume 3, contains mainly correspondence for the third volume, arranged chronologically.

Sub-subseries 4: Letters and Notes, General, contains reference material, notes, manuscript and typescript drafts and inserts, and correspondence for Letters and Notes, arranged chronologically. This material was not clearly marked by Elinor or by her editors for a particular volume of the book, and is therefore arranged separately.

Sub-subseries 5: Letters and Notes, Material considered by Bruce Phemister and Philipp Fehl for inclusion in later volumes, contains reference material, notes, manuscript and typescript drafts and inserts, and correspondence for Letters and Notes reviewed by two of Elinor's editors after her death. This material is arranged chronologically.

Sub-subseries 6: Los Angeles Diary, contains a proof, reprints, and correspondence for Elinor's published essay in the book Essays in Honor of Conyers Read (1953). Reprints were sent out by John and Elinor Nef as their Christmas card in 1952.

Sub-subseries 7: My Mother's Reminiscences, contains notes, manuscript and typescript drafts and inserts, correspondence, and the published monograph of Mabel Wing Castle's autobiography, for which Elinor was the major catalyst and editor. Materials are arranged chronologically.
