EH08300P  Ernest Hemingway at the wheel of his boat, Pilar, with Carlos Gutierrez, 1934.

The Friends of the Ernest Hemingway Collection was founded in 1990 by Patrick Hemingway, son of the Nobel-prize winning author, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to provide financial support and resources to preserve and make accessible the Ernest Hemingway Collection at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.

The Ernest Hemingway Collection contains ninety percent of existing Hemingway manuscript materials, as well as a wealth of letters, scrapbooks, photographs, and other material spanning the author’s life and career.

Without the private and generous support of friends and admirers of Ernest Hemingway, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library would be unable to pay for the critical preservation work that is needed to protect and safeguard this historical and cultural treasure.

Please consider joining now. Your donation and membership will help preserve this priceless collection, purchase new materials, and support public programming that examines American literature and the creative process of writing as personified by Hemingway’s legendary career.

Upon receipt of your membership donation, you will receive a complimentary print copy of our annual Friends of the Ernest Hemingway Collection newsletter with information about projects in the collection you will be helping to fund. Please click here to read PDFs of our past newsletters.
