Collection Summary

Abstract

This collection conists primarily of creative papers of writer, poet, playwright, composer, and lyricist Francis W. Hatch. Included are numerous samples from each genre, including plays produced at Castine, Maine and columns published in various magazines and newspapers. Also included are a series of letters with his Harvard classmate George Brownell and other correspondence; clippings and scrapbooks (1947-1970) of his writings; genealogical material; and papers related to Hatch's other personal interests.

Biographical Sketch

Francis Whiting Hatch was born in Medford, Mass. on January 9, 1897. He attended Volkmann School, Brookline, and graduated from Harvard College in 1919. Prominent in business, civic and cultural affairs of Boston, he was also a writer, poet, playwright, composer, and performer. In summer, and year round after his retirement in 1967, he made his home in Castine, Maine. He married Marjory Kennard Hatch. He died in Boston on May 14, 1975.

Francis Whiting Hatch was Vice-President and Director of the advertising firm, Batten, Barton, Durstine, and Osborn, for four decades and held several business directorships. He was a trustee of such organizations as the Massachusetts General Hospital, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and the Noble and Greenough School. He served as Chairman of the Red Feather Drive, President of the Harvard Alumni Association, President General of the Society of the Cincinnati, President of the Castine (Maine) Hospital, and in other local and national positions.

His writings, both prose and light verse, appeared in publications such as The New Yorker, Down East, The Saturday Evening Post, The Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor, and The Pilot. His column "Where But New England" appeared regularly in the Essex County (Mass.) newspapers until his death. His musical comedies were performed by amateur groups such as the Vokes Players, Inc., Wayland, Mass.; and the Cupola Players, made up of Hatch family and friends in Castine. Many of his songs, among them "Some Coward Closed the Old Howard" and "Vote Early and Often for Curley," as performed at the piano by the composer, were favorites at public and private gatherings and have been published and recorded.

Collection Description

The bulk of the papers date from 1945-1975 and illustrate the public and creative life of Francis Whiting Hatch. The papers reveal little of his business life or of his personal life beyond the range of his interests, his gift for friendship, and his love of Castine, Maine, in particular. The bulk of the papers consist of Francis Whiting Hatch's creative output: prose, poetry, music, and scripts. Whether the voluminous newspaper and magazine clippings comprise a complete record of his published writings is uncertain.

The collection is housed in 5 record cartons and one oversize box. The record cartons are stored offsite and must be requested by barcode number at least 24 hours in advance. The oversize box remains onsite.

A large quantity of material is in typescript form; some items contain manuscript changes and some writing is in rough draft. The correspondence consists primarily of single letters from various individuals. The only sustained correspondence is between Francis Whiting Hatch and his Harvard classmate, George Brownell, which was saved by Brownell.

The collection also includes biographical and genealogical material; Christmas cards; journals; notebooks; and research notes; pamphlets; notices; reports; programs; invitations, and clippings concerning institutions in which Francis Whiting Hatch was interested; theatrical programs and handbills from musical productions; clippings about Francis Whiting Hatch and his family; ephemera; and photographs.

The collection is divided into four series: Personal and Creative; Activities and Interests; Clippings and scrapbooks; and Photographs. The photographs in the latter series have been physically removed from the collection to be housed with the M.H.S. photograph collection. Also, because many of the writings are undated, no systematic effort has been made to remove duplicates.

Newsclippings of writings by Francis Whiting Hatch have been arranged chronologically for each publication. Many of the clippings found in the scrapbooks can also be found with the loose clippings.
