Subseries 1.2
Writings by others, circa 1961-2003
Boxes 14-25, OP5

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of writings by others and includes poetry and prose manuscripts by amateur and professional writers. Notable writers represented in the subseries include Maya Angelou and Jeffrey Eugenides. There is a large amount of material from Walter E. Doerfler's artistic work "From the Life, Times and Newsleeks of A. Port'eous Lighthead," which was constructed from newspaper clippings. There are also a large number of draft writings from the Castle Hill Poetry Workshop, a workshop that Dugan taught in Truro, Massachusetts. Many of the writings from amateur writers contain correspondence asking Dugan for comment or thanking him for reading their work. Where amateur writers sent multiple poems to Dugan for review, writings have been listed alphabetically by the first poem in the group.
