Tulane has acquired the complete archives of famed New Orleans author Anne Rice. Her first book, Interview With the Vampire, the first volume of The Vampire Chronicles series, was published in 1976 and is one of the best-selling novels of all time. Rice also wrote the screenplay for the 1994 film adaptation of Interview With the Vampire. The archives include manuscripts of most of Rice’s published novels and unpublished short stories as well as screenplays, journals, personal artifacts, pieces of correspondence from her family as well as friends and fans and other materials documenting her literary and personal life. The collection also includes materials from her late husband, Stan Rice, including poetry manuscripts, correspondence and paintings, and documents from her sister Alice Borchardt, an author of fantasy, horror and historical fiction. The acquisition of the archives was made possible by a gift from Stuart Rose and the Stuart Rose Family Foundation.
