The Judy Malloy Papers includes the personal and professional papers and materials from Judy Malloy, a groundbreaking artist, author, and poet working in electronic literature and online interactive formats.
The collection is still being acquired, with new additions being regularly added to this finding aid. Please consult Research Services with questions about this material.
Malloy's Printed Materials series includes both books and journal publications, with content both by and about Malloy, as well as some of her own reference material. Many books feature a chapter or contribution by Malloy, discussing or explaining her experimentation with online narratives and electronic fiction. Other articles discuss and reference her early contributions, including Uncle Roger and its name was Penelope. Some material relates to computer programming and early Internet research material. Finally, this series contains a cluster of books used by Malloy in her research for various publications. These are grouped at the end of the series.
The Notebooks series includes Malloy's notes and drafts for her various writing projects, including Uncle Roger, its name was Penelope, and Brown House Kitchen. These notebooks reveal the changes each work underwent as it was edited and outlined.
The Early Artists Books series consists largely of notes and photocopies of some of Malloy's early books, as well as a folder with color slides of a selection of her art.
Malloy's Writings and Programming series is largely focused on her new media work, with large amounts of material from her creation and publication of Uncle Roger, the first electronic hyperfiction. These files include her original work, as told on the Art Com Electronic Network (ACEN), as well as later versions and program printouts. Similar documentation is available for its name was Penelope, originally exhibited by Malloy in 1988-1989 and eventually published by Narrabase Press in 1990 and Eastgate in 1993. This subseries also includes an artist book for Penelope. Smaller amounts of materials exist for Malloy's other e-literature and programs, including You!, Brown House Kitchen, Molasses, Forward Anywhere, Wasting Time, Thirty Minutes in the Late Afternoon, Dorothy Abrona McCrae, and Paths of Memory and Painting, among others. There is also a small amount of material relating to Malloy's printed works, including Women, Art & Technology, as well as early children's literature.
The Exhibitions series includes documentation and materials from Malloy's installations and exhibitions of her artists books as well as exhibitions of her new media and electronic fiction. These have been divided thusly in the Detailed Description, and subsequently arranged chronologically. Materials include postcards, plans, correspondence, news clippings and press coverage, contracts, and other materials relating to the exhibit.
Talks and Readings is a small series with materials from various speaking engagements. The most significant was Malloy's participation in the Telluride Ideas Festival in 1993.
The Correspondence series includes much more than correspondence, and is in fact more of a name file of Malloy's relationships throughout the artist and e-lit communities. Her general correspondence includes letters from her childhood and college travels, as well as some miscellaneous files of correspondence with various curators and others regarding her exhibitions. The bulk of the series, however, consists of Malloy's artist correspondence and Art Com Electronic Network correspondence. These files include letters, postcards, prints, news clippings and press coverage, and occasional pieces of original art sent to Malloy throughout the 1970s and 1980s. The ACEN artist files include email and letters, some exhibition documentation, and some software-related documentation that overlaps with the Media by Other Artists series. The Correspondence series is grouped by General, Artists, and ACEN Artists, and subsequently sorted alphabetically.
The Media by Other Artists series includes software and accompanying documentation by several ACEN artists, many of whom included inscriptions or autographs for Malloy, as well as other new media. Finally, the Personal Materials series includes a subseries of personal photographs and slides, information on Malloy's family, and memorabilia including calendars and documents.

Bad Thad is a children's book by Judy Malloy, published in 1980 by E.P. Dutton with illustrations by Martha Alexander.
Card catalog poem made from 50 3x5 photos, drawings, and text and filed in a plexiglass box; it can be read sequentially or hypertextually. The work was shown in Technical Information, SITE, San Francisco, CA, March 3-28, 1981 (partially funded by the NEA), and Hearst Strip, Location/Dislocation, Berkeley Art Center, Berkeley, CA, April 25-May 23, 1980.
This information art project looked at the social implications of genetic engineering.
Sequential photo-poem meant to be used in Radio Shack's battery-operated address books that electro-mechanically moved a roll of paper on which you could write addresses. Malloy made several artist books by replacing this paper with a roll of sequential photos; this project consisted of photos taken of people in the bleachers at Oakland A's games.
For this project, one of the first pieces of online collaborative information art, Malloy invited participants to help create a satirical database. The searchable database that this produced concerned the impact of computers on society and the tendency not to question computer-produced information. It is available at http://www.well.com/user/jmalloy/badinfo/bad.html.
For this project, an offline database was created with excerpts from computer magazines and documentation. Cards were physically sent to various participants, who were invited to return the card labeled with a keyword they had selected from a provided list. Malloy then printed out the results of the search for that keyword and sent it to the requester. The notebook contains the search requests Malloy received.
Uncle Roger was begun online on Art Com Electronic Network (ACEN) on the WELL on December 1, 1986. It was first told as an online serial with the keywords provided in each lexia-based installment, so that the readers could create their own version of the work using their own database software.
The work consists of three parts: File 1, A Party in Woodside; File 2, The Blue Notebook; and File 3, Terminals.
A working hypertextual version was published online (programmed with UNIX Shell Scripts) on ACEN from 1987-1988 with each part appearing separately. The publication of File 2 was partially funded by the California Arts Council and Art Matters. At the same time, 1987-1988, disk versions of this work were self-published and distributed by Art Com -- first Apple II and then IBM PC. The disk version was also included in the traveling exhibition, Art Com Software, as well as in other exhibitions.
Uncle Roger was first adapted for the World Wide Web in 1995 and revised in 2003. It is available at http://www.well.com/user/jmalloy/uncleroger/unclerog.html. The best overall reference for Uncle Roger is Judy Malloy, Uncle Roger, An Online Narrabase, in the journal issue Connectivity: Art and Interactive Telecommunications, Leonardo 24:2, 1991 (which is included in the Printed Materials series).
Its name was Penelope was created by Malloy in three different versions, with additional variations in the first two versions. The Exhibition version dates from 1988-1989. The Artists Software version was published by Malloy's Narrabase Press in 1990, and was distributed by Art Com. Finally, the Eastgate version began publishing in 1993.
This is the version used for the Richmond Art Center Exhibition.
Malloy was invited to create this work in the offices of The Whole Earth Review using a Mac, HyperCard, and an Apple computer. She used the cards (drawings, photographs, and texts) from one of her card catalogs (HOME) and also created the audio for the work. It was exhibited at the Art Com Software Show along with Uncle Roger. She published it via Bad Information (Berkeley, CA) in 1988.
Thirty Minutes in the Late Afternoon was a collaborative work created on ACEN on The WELL in 1990. It was conceived and produced by Judy Malloy and written by Malloy in conjunction with Anna Couey, Abbe Don, J. Matisse Enzer, Carole Gould, ISAST, Eleanor Kent, Carl Loeffler, Tom Mandel, Gil MinaMora, Harold Poskanzer, Howard Rheingold, The Normals, Fred Truck, and Kathleen Watkins. The actions and words of three characters were written on a conferencing system, divided into four topics which were then formatted into three columns by Malloy. The work takes place October 17, 1989, the date of the Loma Prieta earthquake; most of the writers would have been in the Bay Area at that time.
You! was a collaborative narrative data structure, created in 1991. Exhibitions include Reflux, at the Sao Paulo Biennial in Brazil (1991), as well as INTERNET, in New York City (1995). It was also included on the CD that accompanied The New Media Reader, edited by Noah Wardrip-Fruin and Nick Montfort (2003). It is available on the web at http://www.well.com/user/jmalloy/you/index.html
