History of the Collection
The Bogan papers chiefly cover the years 1930-1970 because a fire destroyed Bogan's home and belongings, in Hillsdale, Columbia County, N.Y. on December 26, 1929. The collection was acquired in 1974 from the Estate of Louise Bogan by Amherst College through purchase by Helen Spencer Humphries. In 1992, four additional boxes of material were acquired containing papers, correspondence and photographs documenting her personal affairs. Integration of the entire collection was completed in 2002.
