July 27, 1961 - Ernest Hemingway's widow said her husband's unpublished works included some poetry and at least two novels including a major work in the vault of a Havana bank. The writer, who was killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound on July 2 in Ketchum, Idaho, had earlier described one of the novels as "a big one all about the land, the sea and the air." Carlos Baker, an authority on Hemingway, said that two completed manuscripts are in the hands of Charles Scribner's Sons. These are "The Dangerous Summer," an account of the 1959 bullfighting season in Spain, three excerpts of which appeared in Life magazine, and a collection of reminiscences of Paris in the 1920s.
