ASC Releases two new University Archives Collections

The Archives Service Center released the papers of Percival Hunt, a professor in the English Department at Pitt (1921-1948). Several files deal with the drafts and publication of his books, Samuel Pepys in the Diary and 15th Century England. He also wrote books about the teaching of composition and those are reflected in the collection as well. Of particular interest is a diary that Hunt kept on his trip around the world. The Gene Kelly Alumni Files contain materials collected by Virginia Nicklas, retired Pitt Stewardship Administrator, relating to the actor and Pitt alumnus, Gene Kelly. The small collection is comprised of 22 file folders which contain correspondence, news clippings, a scrapbook and a photo album.
