Abstract: This chapter discusses the Ruth Elvish Mantz Collection in the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin. Mantz wrote the first biography of Mansfield in 1933, in conjunction with Mansfield’s husband, John Middleton Murry, who was brought in as a co-author by the publishers. The finished biography was not what she originally intended to write. She spent the rest of her life writing numerous unpublished manuscripts reworking the events of Mansfield’s life into book form. All her papers are now in Texas, and offer a fascinating insight into Mansfield’s first biographer.
