Paul Foreman Papers, 1919-1979, and the Records of Thorp Springs Press 1967-1982.

Correspondence, creative works, printed material, photographs, and legal and legal-style documentation, created and maintained by Paul Foreman in his capacity as editor of Thorp Springs Press, document Foreman's literary publishing activities and, to a lesser extent, his personal interests and the lives of members of his family. Creative works dominate the records of Thorp Springs Press and include book-length drafts, typescripts, and page proofs. Manuscripts representthe work of Jon Bracker, Mark Chain, Morton Grinker, Judy Hogan, James Hoggard, Worden McDonald, Sheila Nickerson, Thomas Parkinson, Thomas Zigal, and others. Roughly half of the manuscripts remain unpublished. Letters from authors accompanying and commenting upon many of the manuscripts can be found in the author files, which also include revisions, works-in-progress, clippings, broadsides, a few contracts and photographs, and a small number of letters from other publishers, editors, and printers. Frequent correspondents were Joseph Bruchac, Gene Fowler, Len Fulton, Judy Hogan, Gene Nelson, and Sheila Nickerson. Subject files consist of materials regarding small presses and other topics peripherally related to the operation of Thorp Springs Press. The Foreman Family materials include clippings, creative works, and magazines reflecting Foreman's personal interests. Letters include a 1919 letter from Foreman's great-great aunt tracing their family lineage as well as routine letters from his parents and siblings. A file of correspondence and court records relating to the arrest of Foreman's brother, Donald, in 1976 is also included.
