Inside the Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park’s archives

The Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park Archives sits in a quiet corner on the third floor of his hometown’s library. Most patrons never see the vastness of the collection, the bulk of which was donated by Waring Jones, a collector who spent years gathering letters and artifacts from the author’s life.

Recently, the Foundation’s Barbara Ballinger invited the Oak Leaves to tour its archives, which includes letters, manuscripts, family heirlooms, first and foreign editions of the author’s books, and more.
