Series 2
Works by Logue, circa 1952-2001
Boxes 5 - 21; OP 1 and 2

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of writings by Logue from 1952-2001, and includes journals, notebooks, collected and uncollected poetry, edited works, published and unpublished drama, musical works, and prose. The series begins with Logue's personal journals of diary-writing and memoranda, then continues with notebooks containing draft material of unpublished work as well as pieces from collected works; notebooks designated for particular volumes are included with those volumes.

Logue's collected poems are arranged chronologically by date of publication, and include outlines, manuscript and/or typescript versions of the poems with significant number of drafts and hand-written revisions, and clean copies of the final version. Uncollected poems are arranged alphabetically by title or first line, when a title is lacking; included with the uncollected poems are numerous drafts for a work Logue dubbed "unfinished longish poem." Logue's published dramatic works and screenplays similarly are arranged chronologically by publication date, and the unpublished works alphabetically by title. The series ends with published musical works and uncollected prose writings.

Arrangement Note

Arranged by type of record: journals and notebooks, collected poetry, edited works, uncollected poetry, published drama, unpublished drama, published musical work, and prose.
