Introduction

When the Special Collections Department opened its doors in 1969, there was already established the solid beginnings of a manuscript collection. Several members of the English Department had encouraged the purchase of a number of collections, which eventually led toward the establishment of the department. Roger H. Guedalla and George Quasha were among the people who had been instrumental in purchasing a Modern Literature collection, which contained books and manuscripts focusing on the extraordinary group of authors and poets who had been involved with Black Mountain College in North Carolina. Many of these manuscripts are now housed with the Historic and Literary Manuscript Collection (MC 100), and include original materials by Robert Creeley, Charles Olson, and Fielding Dawson.

Scope and Content

The collection is arranged alphabetically by author and is comprised of 3.6 cubic feet of manuscripts and documents, including single items and small groups of materials of local, national, and world interest (ca. 1819-1989). The folder contents include letters, correspondence, articles, stories, plays, and legal materials.
