About Susan Warren (Wilbur) Jones (1893–1969)

Susan Wilbur Jones was the wife of Llewellyn Jones, a former literary editor of the Chicago Evening Post and later editor of the Christian Register, a magazine associated with the Unitarian Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts (see MS 164). Susan took short-story writing courses from May Sarton at Radcliffe College.

About the Susan (Wilbur) Jones Papers

The majority of the material relates to the seminar on the short story taught by May Sarton at Radcliffe College in 1956-1957 and taken by Mrs. Susan W. Jones. There are two short stories written as coursework, both with a single page of typewritten critical notes and comments by Sarton; a brochure for Radcliffe Seminars, 1957-1958, advertising the short story course taught by Sarton; a mimeo calendar for the seminar; a required reading list; a certificate of completion for the course; and two letters relating to the seminar or future seminars to be taught by Sarton. In addition, there are two invitation cards addressed to Jones, one for a poetry reading given by Sarton in Cambridge, MA (3/9/1958), the other for a lecture at Simmons College in Boston (5/1/1958), as well as a note written by a classmate (?) specifying Jones’s portion of the cost for anemones to be delivered to May Sarton and a dozen white tulips for Mrs. Frost.
