Project and business correspondence, 1969-1996
Box 2: folders 7-15 - Box 4

Scope and Content Note

This subseries contains Ormsby's correspondence of an editorial and/or business nature. The subseries is divided into two subsections. The project correspondence subsection attempts to maintain the integrity of Ormsby's own files arranged according to specific book projects that he edited. Most of the correspondence in these folders pertains to project research, permissions, and contributors' correspondence. Specific contractual or financial correspondence related to the various book projects is included with the correspondence organized according to publisher.

The business correspondence subsection is arranged according to specific publishing houses. Individual items are then arranged chronologically. In some cases, as in the Gallery Press or Oxford University Press correspondence, extensive editorial exchanges between the publisher and Ormsby (as poet) are segregated from the contractual and fiduciary correspondence. In other instances, as in the Blackstaff Press correspondence, contractual and editorial correspondence is thoroughly mixed together. In many cases, editors simultaneously refer to or attach together both editorial comments and contractual materials related to the books Ormsby edited.
