Biographical history

Anne Waldman, born April 2, 1945, in Millville, New Jersey, graduated from Bennington College in 1966. In 1966 she founded Angel Hair Magazine, with Lewis Warsh. Later that same year, she began working for the Poetry Project in New York City. She was a founding member of the Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, a section of the Naropa Institute at Boulder, Colorado, where she taught and directed the Summer Writing Program. Waldman is the author of over 40 publications of poetry. She is a recipient of the Shelley Memorial Award for Poetry and has been deemed a “counter-cultural” giant by Publisher’s Weekly. She is recipient of the 2013 Guggenheim Fellowship.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds consists of correspondence (with manuscript and typescript enclosures) from Anne Waldman to Lewis Warsh, much of it pertaining to the relationship between the two poets, as well as to relationships with other poets. Their involvement in the Naropa Institute is also described. Most of the letters from 1969 to 1973 concern the publishing of Angel Hair Books and contain much information about the New York poetry world centred at the Poetry Project.
