Items from Hemingway's Cuba home go to JFK Library
WASHINGTON (AP) — A partnership between Cuba and a private U.S. foundation is working to preserve more of writer Ernest Hemingway's papers and belongings that he left at his home near Havana when he died.
U.S. Rep. James McGovern of Massachusetts and the Finca Vigia Foundation are scheduled to announce the digitization of 2,000 Hemingway papers and materials Monday. The digital copies will be transferred to Boston's John F. Kennedy Library.
This is the first time anyone in the U.S. has been able to examine these items from the famous writer's Cuban estate, Finca Vigia. They include passports showing Hemingway's travels and letters commenting on such works as "The Old Man and the Sea."
The Kennedy Library holds a large Hemingway collection because Jacqueline Kennedy helped arrange a place for the items.
