Ernest Hemingway's Cuban Papers Now Available

A complete collection of copies of papers from Ernest Hemingway's Finca Vigia estate outside Havana are now available at the JFK Library in Massachusetts, thanks to an agreement brokered by Rep James McGovern. Sounds really cool.

From the AP:

The archival replicas include corrected proofs of "The Old Man and the Sea," a movie script based on the novel, an alternate ending to "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and thousands of letters, with correspondence from authors Sinclair Lewis and John Dos Passos and actress Ingrid Bergman. The documents were previewed Thursday and will likely be available to researchers in late spring.
