Description: In 1971, Diana Trilling received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to conduct a series of interviews with what we now term "the New York Intellectuals" in preparation for a book on the literary and political life of New York from the 1930s to the 1960s. Forty-five people were interviewed, most of them in some way connected to various publications of those times, such as The Partisan Review, Dissent, the New Republic and others. Basic transcripts were compiled by the Oral History Research Office, but the book was never written. Upon her death, Mrs. Trilling deeded the interviews to the Office. They consist of 93 cassettes and preliminary unedited and unindexed transcripts. Limited access is available. Contact the Office for a detailed listing of those interviewed and restrictions on the use of materials.
