The collection consists of 5 holograph postcards (Aug. 31, 1934 to Sept. 2, 1926), 10 holograph letters (Aug. 14, 1934 to Aug. 14, 1935), 1 typescript letter (Jan. 16, 1936), one chain letter (typescript and holograph, undated), one typescript letter signed by August Derleth (April 21, 1968). The letters and postcards are written to Fred Anger from Lovecraft, mostly from his home in Providence, Rhode Island. They relate to their common interests in writing weird fiction and issues relating to publishing their work. Transcriptions of the materials have been made and are available in the archives.
The microfilmed collection contains correspondence exchanged between Howard Phillips Lovecraft and Edgar Hoffmann Price on literary matters, between October 3, 1932 and November 11, 1937. Price is believed to have donated the original letters to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
