Guide to the Carolina Wren Press Records, 1940-1994, undated

Collection Overview

The Carolina Wren Press Records span the years 1940 through 1992, with most of the material dated between 1970 and 1990. The papers are divided into two large groups, the Carolina Wren Press Records and the Carolina Wren Press Records: Judy Hogan Papers.

The Carolina Wren Press Records group contains material relating to the founding and publishing activities of the press and to organizations with which the press was affiliated. The papers are divided into the following series: Correspondence, Writings, Publications, Printed Material, Lollipop Power Press (a feminist press publishing non-sexist children's books), Homegrown Books (a publication for reviews of small press work), Hyperion (a poetry journal), Grant Material, Organizations, Office Files, Financial Papers, COSMEP (Committee of Small Magazine Editors and Publishers), and Photographs and Audiovisual Material. Each of these series documents not only the growth and activities of Carolina Wren Press and associated organizations, but also the origins and development of the small press movement in the United States and particularly in the South.

The Carolina Wren Press Records: Judy Hogan Papers group documents the life and activities of the author Judy Hogan, the founder of Carolina Wren Press. The material is divided into the following series: Correspondence, Diaries, Writings, Teaching Materials, Financial Papers, Biographical Material. While some of the correspondence and diary entries may mention the Carolina Wren Press, the papers in this group focus primarily on Hogan's personal life, her education, her writing and projects, and her teaching activities.

Updated by Meghan Lyon in January 2012.

The current arrangement of the Carolina Wren Press Records is the result of extensive reorganization of the material between 1992-1995. During processing, it became apparent that access could best be provided by separating materials into two groups: those concerning the press and the small press movement (Carolina Wren Press Records) and those documenting the personal life and writing career of Judy Hogan (Carolina Wren Press Records: Judy Hogan Papers). In instances in which overlap occurred, material was placed in the Carolina Wren Press Records: Judy Hogan Papers group in order to comply with restrictions on personal correspondence. In series in which further arrangement was determined unlikely to aid researchers, material has been placed in folders, but not arranged.

Volumes published by the Carolina Wren Press have been cataloged individually and are housed in the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library. Researchers wishing to find these volumes should search the on-line catalog, using the keyword phrase "Carolina Wren Press."
