Author and activist Upton Sinclair is best known today for his books The Jungle (1906) and Oil! (1927). But he won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for one of his best-selling Lanny Budd novels, Dragon's Teeth (1943). He ran for governor of California in 1934 on the End Poverty in California (EPIC) platform, was an avid tennis player, and corresponded with many interesting authors, politicians, and other prominent (and less prominent) people.
The bulk of his writings and personal correspondence are found in the Sinclair mss., but many other collections include his writings and those of his wives and friends.
Hundreds of Sinclair's books are listed in IUCAT, including first editions and numerous translations.
