Spalding Gray Archives

My collection has been donated to the University of Texas (Austin) Archives to go with collection from the Estate.
The Archives collection with complete list of their holdings will be listed here as soon as they provide me with a listing.
For now this page only lists my collection which was donated. Special thanks to the Archives for their generous help.
