Burton Rascoe (1892-1957) was an American literary critic, journalist, editor, and author working in the first half of the 20th century.

The collection consists of his correspondence, including some with famous literary figures; writings by Rascoe in draft and published form; papers relating to a lawsuit with Max Annenberg; diaries and notebooks; photographs; and clippings.
