Hemingway’s papers come to JFK Library

Despite the strained relations between the countries, the curators of the Kennedy library and the Castro regime have over the years found common ground, enough that the library announced this week that Cuba has shared copies of 3,000 letters and documents from the Hemingway archives at the country’s Ministry of Culture. The material fills a hole in the library’s collection, which purports to have the most comprehensive body of the Nobel Prize-winning author’s writings.

The documents include an alternate ending to For Whom the Bell Tolls, as well as correspondence with the likes of Robert Capa, Sinclair Lewis and Ingrid Bergman.
