Biographical Note

Writer and mathematician, born in Charleston, South Carolina. After studying at Porter Military Academy, College of Charleston, and Yale University, Robert Walter Marks (1907-1993) moved to New York City and began his career as a freelance writer. Marks became Esquire's automotive and airplane writer, but soon began to cover a wide array of fields and topics, often contributing several articles in single issues under different pen names. He wrote a series of articles on early 20th century photographers for Coronet, and his articles were published in numerous other magazines under pen names such as Mark Ashley, Tradd Cooper, John Charleston, and Tycho Brache. He wrote books on mathematics using the pen name Bradford Smith. After his magazine writing career Marks began editing, publishing, teaching (professor of philosophy at the New School for Social Research in New York), and writing novels. He wrote scientific, mathematical, and technical works, and published numerous erotic novels under the name of John Colleton. In the 1970s Marks moved back to Charleston, South Carolina.


Collection Overview

Collection of correspondence, manuscripts, drafts, notes, clippings, photographs, and other materials reflecting Marks' multifarious career in Charleston, South Carolina, New York, and Europe. Much of the collection consists of typewritten manuscripts and drafts of hundreds of published articles, short stories, advertisements, and books. Topics of non-fiction works include photography, hypnotism, wine, automobiles, mathematics, and a biography on R. Buckminster Fuller. His published writings also include his autobiography. Marks' professional and personal correspondence include letters from Arnold Gingrich (editor of Esquire magazine), Clare Luce, Alfred Stieglitz, Pierre Salinger, Ruth Benedict, Laura Bragg, Alexander Calder, and Buckminster Fuller. The longest series of letters is his correspondence from 1923-1969 with Thomas Jefferson Tobias, a Charleston businessman and historian. The collection also contains Marks' school papers and related correspondence, notes, and programs from his years at the College of Charleston and Yale University. Other miscellaneous items include clippings of Marks' articles and reviews of his books. Also included are ten audio cassettes, twelve reels of audio tape, and fifteen metal instantaneous discs, and two wire recordings of lectures, concerts, and conversations.
