Box 32: folders 20-74 - Box 34: folders 1-6; OP 11, 13-19

Scope and Content Note

The subseries for other printed material contains a wide assortment of texts grouped by type. The most prominent subsection is that dedicated to printed material by others. Ormsby has collected a large number of published poems, stories, reviews, and essays by an assortment of mostly Irish writers. These documents are arranged in alphabetical order by author. In some cases, Ormsby amassed multiple reviews of specific texts. These have been gathered together and listed as "assorted reviews" of a particular text. Furthermore, a number of folders contain miscellaneous, sometimes unattributed articles grouped together according to specific subjects or themes. Another subsection consists of various whole journals or magazines retained because of the literary or cultural relevance of particular articles. The printed material subseries also holds a substantial collection of theater and other event programs. The numerous playbills relating to specific theaters have been arranged according to theater. These offer a snapshot of the Dublin and Belfast theater scenes in the 1970's and 1980's. Other event programs are arranged in a more heterogeneous subsection.
