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.
