This website is dedicated to the work of the great Americanist Daniel Aaron (1912-2016). It is maintained by his literary executor, Christoph Irmscher (Indiana University). The site offers links to Dan's published works, information about his unpublished manuscripts and papers, as well as photographs and critical resources. In the blog section (“From Dan's Desk”), I will publish poems by Dan as well as weekly entries from Daniel's Dictionary, Dan's extensive collection of curious and memorable words.  The site also provides a link to the finding aid for Daniel Aaron's papers at Houghton Library, Harvard University.


Contributions to the site are welcome and invited. If you want to contribute or provide links related to works by and about Dan, please get in touch with me through the contact form.
