Biographical or Historical Information

These manuscripts were given to the Wade Center by Douglas A. Anderson in 2018. Anderson acquired them from the estate of Lin Carter in 1999 after his death in 1988. Carter had planned to start a series of juvenile fantasies to be called "Magic Kingdoms" in 1972, and Anderson thinks these copies were given to him directly by Green. Most of the pages were copied in the early 1970s, though some newer copied pages have been interspersed.

The bulk of Lin Carter's papers are now at Ohio State University and Duke University Library. The Green family also owns a large amount of remaining collections relating to Roger Lancelyn Green.
