Book and manuscript files

Sub-series consists of records relating to Fellman's book projects. Records include manuscripts (in paper and digital form), correspondence, research notes and working papers, contracts, reviews, photographs, and book publicity materials.

The files are arranged into separate sub-sub-series for each project. All of Fellman's published works are represented with the exception of his second book, Making Sense of Self. There are in addition materials for two works that were never published: Uneminent Victorians, a series of studies of individuals "falling from respectability in late Victorian England"; and Dirty Civil War, an unfinished novel of the American Civil War.


  • The Unbounded Frame files (sub-sub-series 1)
  • Inside War files (sub-sub-series 2)
  • Uneminent Victorians files (sub-sub-series 3)
  • Citizen Sherman files (sub-sub-series 4)
  • The Making of Robert E. Lee files (sub-sub-series 5)
  • This Terrible War files (sub-sub-series 6)
  • In the Name of God and Country files (sub-sub-series 7)
  • Views from the Dark Side files (sub-sub-series 8)
  • Dirty Civil War files (sub-sub-series 9)

For the earlier works (sub-sub-series 1 through 4), only paper records exist. For later works (sub-sub-series 5 through 9), digital copies of the manuscripts were included among his computer files, often in multiple versions. The Archives has made no attempt to analyze, compare, or reconcile the various versions of the same work; it has simply assigned a version number (A, B, C etc) based on the date-modification timestamps.
