I’ve just had the most exciting couple of days at UCLA. One of the librarians approached me today and told me that she had some uncatalogued Chandler letters and asked if I would like to see them.
Yes, Please. I responded. And, a few minutes later I was pouring over a package of letters that I don’t think have been seen before by a biographer. My heart was thumping and my palms were sweaty as I read these new letters because they told me a lot of news things about Chandler. They shed light on his life in an entirely unexpected way and it was thrilling. I don’t want to go into too much detail yet but I will soon, I hope. And I think, when I do, I will be able to add to our understanding of Chandler.
