The Anne Waldman papers are divided into fifteen series: Biographical; Correspondence and Name File; Writing; Journals and Notebooks; Editing and Publishing; Naropa; Other Activities; Personal; Early Years; Family; Handmade Books; Art; Photographs; Audiovisual; and Printed Material. Researchers should note that books and serial publications from Waldman’s library have been separated from the collection and cataloged individually. The Anne Waldman Papers were purchased by the Special Collections Library in 1998. Periodic additions to the collection have been made since then. The papers document Waldman’s personal and professional life from childhood to adulthood in great detail, and provide a rich and unique source for the study of American poetry in the nineteen sixties, seventies, eighties and nineties. The collection includes textual material, photographs, audiovisual material, and artwork that extensively document Waldman’s writing, publishing and performance efforts, her administrative leadership and teaching activities at the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery and Naropa University’s Writing and Poetics program, and her relationships and interactions with a remarkable number of prominent poets, writers, and artists.
