Letter: Is there an official August Wilson Foundation?

Dear Dr. Downing,

Hello, my name is Amelia Grabowski and I’m a senior at Gettysburg College researching August Wilson. Thank you so much for your website, it has been so helpful in beginning my research. However, one of things I have not been able to locate is where Wilson’s papers are located. I was wondering if you could provide me with any guidance as to where I could find them?

Thank you so much,




Thanks for writing.  This has been an ongoing mystery.  A few years ago, an official August Wilson Foundation was set up, with a proper mailing address and everything.  Then, shortly thereafter, the information disappeared.

You might try contacting the August Wilson Center in Pittsburgh.  I also plan to direct my efforts toward finding an answer to this question.

If you find out anything, please let me know.  Sorry I cannot be of more assistance.


Dr. Downing
