Historical Note

Ruth Epperson Kennell, author, was born in Oklahoma City, September 21, 1893, to Julius and Sara Ellen Seeger Epperson. Her Family was relatively poor and her father died of tuberculosis when Kennell was still quite young. Thereafter, she and her mother moved to the San Francisco Bay area as young Ruth's own health was poor. Kennell attended the University of California at Berkeley in 1913, but did not obtain a degree. She married Frank Risley Kennell, a teacher, in 1917.

Kennell had a long and varied writing career, which included ten years spent in the Soviet Union. She began as a children's librarian in the Richmond (California) Public Library (1914-1917). In 1922, she and her husband, Frank, joined the American Colony Kuzbas in Kemerovo, Siberia. The Kuzbas experiment was designed to provide American personnel and techniques to post-revolutionary Russians engaged in rebuilding and industrializing their strife-torn country. Kennel reluctantly left her baby son, James, in the care of his paternal grandmother, Kate Kennell, in order to participate in the Kuzbas colony.

After two years as Kuzbas, serving as librarian and secretary to the colony, Kennell joined the staff of the International Library in Moscow as a reference librarian (1925-1927). In 1927-1928, she was selected to serve as secretary and guide to Theodore Dreiser as he toured the Soviet Union. Her final years in Russia were spent as Russian correspondent for the Newspaper Enterprise Association (NEA). She also wrote articles on the Kuzbas colony and facets of the life in Moscow for The Nation Magazine.

After returning to the U.S., Ms. Kennell concentrated on writing books and short stories for children, often based in Russia, including Vanya of the streets (1931), The Boy, Nikolka (1943) and Adventure in Russia: The Ghost of Khirgizia (1947). Her story, The Secret Farmyard (1956) was based on her second son's (David) real experience. In 1969, she wrote the well-known account of her experience with Drieser, Theodore Drieser and the Soviet Union. The writing of a book on the American Colony Kuzbas in Siberia occupied her last years.

Ruth Epperson Kennell died in 1977.

Content Description

The first section of the Kennell's collection is comprised of manuscripts for books, articles and short stories, with related notes and reference material. Researchers who desire first-hand autobiographical material are advised to read the manuscripts for Kuzbas: a Romantic Chronicle, in which Kennell recounts her life experiences.

The correspondence section reveals Kennell's wide range of contacts and acquaintances. She received letters from conservative Christian friends as well as the intellectual, politically sophisticated activists one might expect. Of special interest are Kennel's long, detailed, almost diary- like letters to her relatives at the Kuzbas colony, the hardships of living in Russia, the condition of life for the Russian population and to events in her own often turbulent, personal life. The letters, combined with Kennell's trip diaries are articles written by her as Russian correspondent, will provide the researcher with a rich source of material on both the leftist political movement of the period and on post-revolutionary Russia.

The correspondence between Kennel, her husband and various relatives and friends reveals some of the questions, doubts, and conflicts of individuals trying to replace Victorian values in their personal lives. Emancipation of woman from confining sex roles was a prevailing issue among leftists woman in the 1920s.

Other highlights of the correspondence section are original letters from Theodore Dreiser, Pearl J. Buck and H.L. Mencken (for whom Kennell wrote several articles). The Dreiser correspondence is of great interest, as he and Kennell maintained contact for the rest of his life. In one letter, Ms. Kennel criticizes Dreiser severely for his attitude toward woman, as expressed in a book he had written.

Also included in the collection are photographs of the Kennell family and of Russia, stories by Frank Kennell and Ruth. Kennell's mother, Ella Epperson Tosh, assorted essays, clippings and articles on Russia, copies of Ms. Kennell's published books and some miscellaneous personal material.

The Kennell Papers are doubly valuable for its fine assortment of manuscripts and working material from a successful author, and for the personal correspondence and diaries which express the perspective of an active American socialist from the 1920s through the McCarthy era and on into the Vietnam war.
