Visiting the Beinecke Library
Contacts, access, and directions

The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library is Yale University's principal repository for literary papers and for early manuscripts and rare books in the fields of literature, theology, history, and the natural sciences.

In keeping with Yale's attention to theater, as well as its location in New Haven, formerly the tryout capital for Broadway, archives important for their theater connections have been greatly enhanced in the past century. The papers of Eugene O'Neill recall his study in George Pierce Baker's famous "47 Workshop" for playwrights at Harvard, the founding of the Provincetown Players in 1915, O'Neill's Broadway successes mounted by the Theatre Guild, and the troubled family of Long Day's Journey Into Night. Manuscripts in the author's miniscule script are joined by typescripts made by Carlotta Monterey O'Neill, set designs, production photographs, and Carlotta's journals documenting their life together until O'Neill's death. Papers of Agnes Boulton O'Neill, Eugene's second wife, cover the 1920s, while the papers of Neith Boyce and Hutchins Hapgood elaborate on the Provincetown Players.
