Level of Description


Scope and Contents

The Writing Series contains all of Hazel Denton's written work, both published and manuscript (drafts for a book and college papers for example), and demonstrates her growth as a writer and the relative position of professional women in society during the time she was writing.

Denton's columns appeared in several Lincoln County newspapers from approximately 1937 to 1953. Most of this work is in the society columns "Caliente All the Time" and "While the Toast Burns." She also wrote "The Tidewater Sketches," a column that tells of her summer in Washington, D.C. attending Wilson Teachers College. Denton's book Ironing Day is included in this series along with correspondence from the publisher and handwritten drafts of the book.
