|Title:||The Kolb-Proust Archive for Research|
The Kolb-Proust Archive for Research, a project of the Library of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is devoted to the study of French novelist Marcel Proust and his time. Currently allows users to search the collection of research documents, a chronology (to the year 1912), and a bibliography of material by and about Proust assembled by Philip Kolb.
The Kolb-Proust Archives makes available to scholars world-wide the research notes and documentation of Philip Kolb, professor of French at the University of Illinois and editor of the correspondence of Marcel Proust. After coming to the University as a professor of French in 1945, Philip Kolb worked indefatigably on the editing of Proust's correspondence until just before his death in 1992. Kolb left behind a treasure-trove of research notes concerning Proust's letters which offer researchers information relating not only to Proust scholarship, but also to turn-of-the-century French intellectual life in general. These handwritten and printed notes are being encoded in XML (using the TEI schema) and being made available through the online Archive. This resource complements one of the largest existing collections of original Proust letters, stored in the University's Rare Book and Special Collections Library. The Kolb-Proust Archive was developed with financial assistance from the Gould Foundation and the Georges Lurcy Foundation.
