The Little Magazine archive, 1965-1988.

The Little Magazine Archive, 1965-1988, comprises the correspondence, manuscripts, production files, and business records resulting from the twenty-one year life of the periodical. Correspondence from at least three-quarters of the authors who published in The Little Magazine is found in the archive; about 80% of the manuscripts published by the magazine are also retained. The business records delineate the magazine's founding, production, and distribution. A large quantity of invoices and other subscription records is also found in the business records. Correspondence from contributors includes letters from Albert Goldbarth, Colette Inez, James Kates, Gerard Malanga, Joyce Carol Oates, Henry H. Roth, Francis Sullivan, and Peter Wild. Outgoing letters from the magazine are not numerous, but Alexis Levitin is represented by his correspondence with the other editors after his departure from New York. Tom Beeler's letters (mostly carbons) to a wide range of correspondents also survive in the archive.
