Walter D. Edmonds Collection

Personal papers and library of Walter Dumaux Edmonds, well known New York author.

Bibliography of Stories and Articles

The stories are listed below in chronological order (except for three stories listed at the end first published in a 1934 collection, Mostly Canallers). Many stories were also later published separately as books, some under different titles. While attempting to be comprehensive, this bibliography may not be absolutely complete. It does not included stories published in the Harvard Advocate during Edmonds' college years.

Pagination tends to be the first page in publication, that is, "continued on" pagination ignored.
