Introduction:

            Jean Gould's papers date from 1919-1992, and consist of correspondence, notes, rough drafts, typescripts, galley proofs, and research materials for some of her books, short stories, and articles.  Also included are clippings, reviews, a scrapbook, photographs, and miscellaneous items.

            The collection would be useful for students of literature, political science, history, Afro-American studies, and art.

            Miss Gould was a former Toledo resident and a graduate of the University of Toledo.  She wrote and published eighteen books (primarily biographies).  She also contributed short stories, articles, and reviews to several periodicals.

            She began her writing career in the fifth grade when she wrote a one-act play based on a sequence from Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.  She was quoted as saying that she always wanted to be a writer and was injected, if not born, with printer's ink in her veins.  Her family owned a minor publishing business in Toledo which produced theater programs, an entertainment guide, and a weekly paper.  Her mother wrote poetry and editorials and her aunt was a newspaper woman for fifty years.  Miss Gould's first writing job was as assistant editor to her mother.  She soon began writing short stories, fairy tales, and plays for children, and several of the plays were included in Best Plays for Young Readers during the 1950s.  Many of her short stories are incorporated into the collection and give an insight into this early phase of her career.

            Miss Gould had intended to write novels and plays but because of the influence of a professor of 17th century and contemporary poetry, she came under the spell of Emily Dickinson and wrote Miss Emily for young readers; thus, becoming known as a biographer.

            Additional Jean Gould papers consisting of information about Walter P. Reuther are available at the Walter P. Reuther Library of Labor and Urban Affairs of Wayne State University (dedicated May 23, 1975), Detroit, Michigan.  The collection includes some letters from Eugene Debs and photographs, notebooks, etc. from Miss Gould's biography, Walter Reuther:  Labor's Rugged Individualist.

            There are no restrictions to the access of the Jean Gould papers.

Biographical Sketch

            Jean Rosalind Gould was born in Greenville, Ohio on May 25, 1909 to Aaron J. and Elsie (Elgutter) Gould.  She moved to Toledo, Ohio at an early age.

            After Miss Gould completed Modern American Playwrights, she had intended to write a book on modern American poets which dealt with both sexes, however, since "Women's Lib" and the ERA were so prominent at that time, she wrote her last two books on women responsible for the evolution of modern poetry.

            At the time of her death from cancer on February 8, 1993, she was in the process of writing her autobiography in which she planned to deal with overcoming a physical handicap and her experiences with some of the individuals who were subjects of her books.
