Guide to the Ralph Hewins Collected Papers for Biography of J. Paul Getty, circa 1890s-1973, 1984 and undated
Series II. Manuscripts and background information, 1960-1973, 1984, undated 2.0 linear feet (3 boxes, 1 flat file)
Records consist of typescript manuscripts, clippings, ephemera, and photographs, 1960-1973, 1984, and undated, written and collected by Ralph Hewins about J. Paul Getty and comprising Hewins' published and unpublished material about Getty. Some of the material seems to have been assembled as an update to his book, The Richest American: J. Paul Getty (New York: 1960). The manuscripts are a set of short articles and two versions of the manuscript for The Zillionaire: Getty at 80 (unpublished); these contain Hewins' edits. The short works are anecdotal in nature; some relate to Getty's friendships and others to his business or recreational activities. The ephemera consists of cards, invitations and announcements relating to Getty and his companies.
These records are generally arranged in the order of accession. The larger manuscripts have been grouped together.
