[Identification of item], Felix Holt papers, 1903-1964, 1918-1954 (bulk dates), 1M70M42, AAM3908LM, Special Collections, University of Kentucky. Author, cartoonist, newspaperman. Holt, born in Murray, Ky., served in the U.S. Army during World War I. He was a cartoonist and reporter for THE STARS AND STRIPES, the newspaper of the American Expeditionary Forces. He later wrote short stories and was a scriptwriter for several radio serials, including THE LONE RANGER and CIMARRON TAVERN. He published his first novel, THE GABRIEL HORN, in 1951, and his second novel, DAN'L BOONE KISSED ME, was published shortly before his death in 1954. Several copies of two of the author's novels were present in the collection. They were removed and added to the book collection in the Special Collections Division. This is a collection of Felix Holt's manuscripts and personal papers. It contains the manuscripts of THE GABRIEL HORN and DAN'L BOONE KISSED ME, along with several scripts for episodes of THE LONE RANGER and almost the entire run of scripts for CIMARRON TAVERN, dating from April, 1945 to September, 1946. Also included are some of his cartoons, newspaper articles, short stories, radio scripts and publicity materials. Some financial papers are in the collection, including canceled checks and income tax records for the early 1950's. Among Holt's personal papers are family correspondence, including letters of Holt's daughter, Patricia, and his sister, Louise Holt Dick of Murray, Ky. There is a scrapbook and a notebook of quotations and poems by Holt's mother, Mrs. Duncan Holt. The diaries and appointment books of Holt's wife, Margie Sies Holt, record the progress of Holt's final illness and his death in June, 1954. Also included are materials gathered by Lawrence S. Thompson for his article on Holt, which appeared in the REGISTER of the Kentucky Historical Society for July, 1955. In addition, there are genealogical charts and newspaper clippings of interest on the movie, THE KENTUCKIAN, based on the author's novel, THE GABRIEL HORN. Correspondents include Fran Striker, creator of the Lone Ranger, H. L. Mencken, Frank Murphy, Wendell Wilkie and Lawrence Thompson.
