Douglas Odell Spettigue fonds, 1930-1986

MSS 57, PC 78

2 m textual materials

Douglas O. Spettigue, professor of English at Queen's University, is well known for his literary research into the life and writings of Frederick Philip Grove. He is widely credited for the discovery of Grove's earlier German identity, Felix Paul Greve. Grove had already contributed notably to the literature of his own country with poetry, at least two novels, and voluminous translations and criticisms before he began a new life and writing career in Canada. Besides his work on Grove, Spettigue has also written several short stories.

The collection contains the following research papers relating to Frederick Philip Grove: articles; a Grove bibliography project; a Grove biography project; books; correspondence; diaries; dissertation abstract; editorial abstract; editorial involvement; encyclopedia entries; evaluations; lectures; notes; radio debates; reviews; travel notes; 1892 passenger lists; and materials by and about F.P. Greve. The collection does not contain any of Spettigue's own literary material

Acquired from Prof. Douglas Spettigue in 1985
