Before his death in 1999, Paul Bowles agreed to an acquisition by the University of Delaware Library, Special Collections Department of many of his personal papers for a permanent collection. The Paul Bowles Library, Paul Bowles Papers is one of two major university archives of Paul Bowles materials in the United States. This collection includes letters and other correspondence, flyers, music recordings, manuscripts, books, and other documents, as well as some photographs. (The other large collection is at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin, and it includes similar materials for Paul Bowles and for Jane Bowles, along with the separate Millicent Dillon Papers).

Below are a number of the photographs which the University of Delaware has kindly provided for this official Paul Bowles Web site.
