Description: Spanning the dates 1903-1931, the Lennox Robinson papers related to John Quinn consist of editorial correspondence, transcripts of letters, and other manuscripts and material toward a proposed two-volume edition of letters written to the New York lawyer, patron of the arts, and collector John Quinn. The project was undertaken at the behest of Quinn’s sister, Mrs. Julia Quinn Anderson, who wished for a selection of Quinn’s correspondence to be published, with letters “touching lightly upon his career at the Bar and laying stress upon his friendships with Irish men and women, English and French as well, who were distinguished in the Arts.” (F27). Acting on behalf of Mrs. Anderson, New York lawyer Cornelius J. Sullivan contracted Lennox Robinson to select and edit the letters to Quinn from thirteen volumes of his correspondence that were to be deposited with his other papers in the New York Public Library.
