Use of the Collection is Strongly Encouraged. Please contact the library at


The Hinz / Teunissen Literary Collection in 20th Century Literature was donated to St. Thomas More College in 2004. It belonged to and was built by Dr. Evelyn Hinz and Dr. John Teunissen, Professors of English at the University of Manitoba, and was donated to the College by Dr. John Teunissen upon the death Dr. Hinz in 2002.

Dr. Hinz had been the Literary Executor of Anaïs Nin, and the collection is based upon the writing of Ms. Nin and her contemporaries of 20th century American and European literature. Dr. Hinz was engaged by Nin to be Nin’s official biographer, and thus the collection is very extensive and multi-faceted, and includes books, many inscribed, original documents, taped interviews of the literary and social elite of the day, and photographs.  It also includes to a lesser extent some materials related to Nin’s contemporary Henry Miller, as well as some materials by and about Nin’s subject of study and writing, D H Lawrence, and other authors including the scholarship of Hinz and Teunissen.

This important collection of European and American literature exemplifies a passionate embracing of life following the numbing destruction and shock of World War I, from which the world was still reeling in the emerging flapper era, and extends into the years of World War II.  It also represents a broader emergence from the Victorian era and a dawning of women’s personal voice in literature during the early years of the 1900s, and carries through to the years of women’s liberation movement of the 1960’s and 70’s. Nin is  an important early feminist scholar and her diaries are a unique genre of the time period.

Anaïs Nin (1903-1977) was of Spanish and Cuban ancestry born and raised in France, who then moved to New York at the age of 11. At that age, she began keeping a journal as a letter to her father, who remained in Europe, and continued the practice of journalling until her death at the age of 74. Nin also wrote fiction, non-fiction, and extensive personal correspondence.

The Nin Literary Collection is vast, unique, and of singular importance in Canada in that it represents an important literary scholar, writer and personality, Anais Nin, and covers a variety of literary genres.

Collection Description

Collection Description

The Nin Literary Collection contains books, manuscripts, documents, photographs, taped interviews, records and other memorabilia of Dr. Evelyn Hinz and Dr. John Teunissen. The subject of this collection is generally 20th century literature with a concentration on Anaïs Nin, D. H. Lawrence, Henry Miller, and related writers, as well as the scholarship of Drs. Hinz and Teunissen.

Anaïs Nin: Biography

Anaïs Nin was born in Neuilly, France, February 21, 1903, to Joaquin Nin and Rosa Culmell and moved to New York in 1914 with her mother and siblings, after her father abandoned the family. She began her diary at this time and continued the diary throughout her life. She married banker Hugh P. Guiler in Cuba in 1923 and moved to Paris with him in 1931, where she published her first book, D.H. Lawrence : An Unprofessional Study (1932) and associated with and cultivated writers and artists, including Antonin Artaud, Lawrence Durrell, Henry Miller, Gonzalo Moré. She began psychoanalysis with Dr. Réne Allendy and later with Otto Rank, a protege of Sigmund Freud. She published The House of Incest (1936) and Winter of Artifice (1939) while in Europe. She returned to New York and began to publish her own work under the imprint of the Gemor Press, including Under a Glass Bell (1944), This Hunger (1945) and limited editions of The House of Incest and Winter of Artifice. Her husband, Hugh Guiler, using the name Ian Hugo, became a filmmaker and engraver, while maintaining his banking career. Nin published several more books of fiction, including Ladders to Fire (1946), Children of the Albatross (1947), The Four-chambered Heart (1950), A Spy in the House of Love (1954), Solar Barque (1958), Cities of the Interior (1959) and Seduction of the Minotaur (1961). In 1947 she met Rupert Pole and accompanied him on a cross-country trip from New York to Los Angeles, with stops in New Orleans and Taos. She spent the next several years living in New York and Los Angeles, continuing to write in her diary and establishing herself in the creative community of Los Angeles. She took up permanent residence in Los Angeles in 1961. The publication of the first volume of her diary in 1966 brought Nin world-wide attention. The diaries were subsequently published in 7 volumes, 1966-1980. Unexpurgated volumes were published following the death of Hugh Guiler in 1985. Nin died in Los Angeles in 1977.

Hinz Teunissen Literary Collection in Twentieth Century Literature

Donated by Dr. Evelyn Hinz and Dr. John Teunissen

            The Shannon Library is pleased to have received this generous literary donation of modern 20th Century literature.  The core of the collection consists of material written by or about Anaïs Nin, Henry Miller, and D.H. Lawrence, the scholarship of Drs. Evelyn Hinz and John Teunissen, and others.

            The collection was created by the late Dr. Evelyn J. Hinz and Dr. John J. Teunissen.  Hinz and Teunissen met at St. Thomas More College in 1959, both studying under Father O’Donnell.  They completed their academic careers at the University of Manitoba where Hinz was Distinguished Professor of English and Teunissen is now Professor Emeritus.

            Dr. Hinz was an internationally recognized scholar and critic, specializing in Nin and in other areas, including critical theory, women’s and feminist literature, Jungian analyses of myth, romance and fantasy, and biography and autobiography.  She worked very closely with Nin and was the executor of the Nin literary estate.  Hinz received her BA (magna cum laude, with High Honours in 1961) and her MA (1967) from the U of S, and her PhD from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst (1973).  She was the author of numerous books and scholarly essays, and the recipient of many honours, awards and research grants.  At the University of Manitoba, she was for twenty years the editor of the prestigious scholarly journal, MOSAIC: A Journal for the Interdisciplinary Study of Literature, a landmark of which was her four-issue Interarts special.  Most memorable, however, is the high regard in which she was held by her students, as noted in articles about her since her passing, and the great degree to which she was loved and cherished, especially in her passionate approach to honouring the dreamer and the dream.

           Dr. Hinz passed away in early December, 2002. Until her passing, she continued to work on the Nin biography. This single work, as is often the case in true scholarship, was to be an objective, scholarly endeavour; it was to represent the work of a life-time. Research included spending weeks with Nin, combing through her archives, examining her writing, and spending many years travelling extensively throughout the United States, with additional trips to Paris, to conduct interviews with those who knew Nin. Unfortunately, like Nin, Hinz passed away after a battle with cancer. Dr. John Teunissen, who knew them both very well, said they looked like sisters; and indeed were like sisters with similar suffering at the end of their lives. While they lived, however, both were very engaged with life, being very productive and prolific. Hinz's resume can be found here.

            Hinz's husband, Dr. John Teunissen earned his BA (cum laude, with High Honours in 1961) and MA (1962) from the University of Saskatchewan, and his PhD at the University of Rochester (1967).  Before moving to the University of Manitoba in 1972 as Head of the English Department, he taught for a number of years each at the U of S and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.  Most of his scholarly publications are in collaboration with Dr. Hinz, with whom he developed a unique approach to literature.  Of particular note is the critically edited work A Key into the Language of America by Roger Williams (1643).  Dr. Teunissen was active at scholarly conferences and in the profession, having served two terms as President of the Canadian Association for American Studies and as editor of its journal for a period of ten years.  In addition to his administrative duties (he was appointed to three five-year terms as Head), he remained active as a teacher, for which he received a teaching award from the Modern Language Association.  As was Dr. Hinz, he is very proud of his numerous graduate students who have gone on to careers as college and university teachers and who continue to publish in the Hinz/Teunissen tradition.  Dr. Teunissen is fondly remembered by many at the University of Saskatchewan and here at STM for his passion for teaching and the respect and care that he extended toward his students, whom he spent a great deal of time mentoring and encouraging.

            Anaïs Nin was a colourful and controversial author and personality who is known in the history of feminism and in literary circles for her Diaries, as well as her own scholarly research in avant-garde fiction and the work of D. H. Lawrence.  The collection includes numerous publications and translations of the Diaries and other works by Nin including fiction, non-fiction and personal correspondence.  Hinz’s critical works in the collection include three books on Nin: The Mirror and the Garden: Realism and Reality in the Writings of Anaïs Nin, The World of Anaïs Nin(collected scholarly essays edited by Hinz), and A Woman Speaks: The Lectures, Seminars and Interviews of Anaïs Nin, also edited by Hinz, as well as the archival papers, photographs and tapes of Dr. Hinz.

           This collection is unique in that many of the volumes are inscribed to Hinz and/or Teunissen by their authors. It is an important and fine one representing the ideal type of collection: it is unique, it is complete, it contains personal inscriptions by the author to the collectors, who were also close personal friends and colleagues, and is supplemented by related works, as well as the complete archives of the donors. 

            STM is most privileged to have received this collection, and are grateful to Dr. Hinz and Dr. Teunissen for their wisdom and foresight in creating it as well as their generosity in donating it to St Thomas More College.



There are 279 titles in the Nin Literary Collection, which includes the work of Anas Nin, Henry Miller, D H Lawrence, and others, as well as the scholarship of Dr. Evelyn Hinz and Dr. John Teunissen.
