Founded in 1971 as the Steinbeck Research Center, the Center for Steinbeck Studies at San Jose State University is now the largest Steinbeck archive in the world. In 1997, the Center was renamed the Martha Heasley Cox Center for Steinbeck Studies in honor of its founder, a professor of English at San Jose State. The collection houses over 40,000 items - manuscripts, original letters, inscribed first editions, secondary works, film memorabilia, films, cassettes, and over 1200 photographs. Significant manuscript collections have been donated to the Center by Elaine Steinbeck, the author's widow; Sharon Brown Bacon, stepdaughter of Carol Henning Steinbeck Brown, the author's first wife; and Marlene Brody, Steinbeck's secretary in Paris in 1954. Scholars, students, and members of the community are welcome to use the collection housed in the Martin Luther King Jr. Library on campus and view the changing displays.
The Martha Heasley Cox Center for Steinbeck Studies published
Steinbeck Studies from 2001 to 2005. In 2006, the Center acquired the
title Steinbeck Review, which then absorbed Steinbeck Studies.
