Wilder Queries: The Unerring Instinct

Q: Was the short play The Unerring Instinct ever published outside of a collection?

A: According to Tappan Wilder, Thornton Wilder’s nephew and literary executor, The Unerring Instinct has been printed and distributed for free outside of a collection. However, these were for radio production purposes, and were in the form of duplicated pages from the copy machine of the day. In short, these copies of The Unerring Instinct were published in a “duplicated” not formally “printed” sense.
