Typescript of his Address at the University of Hartford
(West Hartford), (U. of Hartford), (1988). A photocopy of the original typescript of the speech Carver gave when he received an honorary Doctor of Letters degree at the university. The speech is transcribed in the program of the Commencement (a copy of which is included here). The typescript differs from the published version in paragraphing and in the deletion of one 17-word clause, which has been circled in ink on the photocopy -- thus providing an earlier view of the text of the speech. A rare ephemeral piece. The typescript is near fine; the program is fine. [#004067] $350
