Hemingway Treasures Available from Cuba

HAVANA TIMES, Jan. 6 –Cuba has just made available electronic copies of thousands of documents of US author Ernest Hemingway from the over two decades when he lived on the outskirts of Havana (1939-1960) and wrote several novels.

An unpublished epilogue of “For Whom the Bell Tolls”, set during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), a screenplay for his classic “The Old Man and the Sea”, and several of Hemingway’s personal belongings including letters were scanned and organized by Cuban heritage specialists with assistance from the Social Science Research Council of New York.

The scanning of the 3,197 is part of project to protect the originals, said Ada Rosa Alfonso, director of the Hemingway Museum located at Finca Vigia.
