Final Nabokov materials now at Harvard

Submitted by Brian_Boyd on Wed, 10/03/2018 - 16:01

Exciting news for Nabokov scholars and students: the final material left in Dmitri Nabokov's possession at his death has been gifted by the Vladimir Nabokov Literary Foundation to Harvard, Dmitri's alma mater, where his father worked both as a lepidopterist and literature professor. The material will be available for researchers in 2019. 

Here is a blog announcing the gift and introducing a sample item, a Russian grammar Nabokov used for teaching.
