The collection of correspondence held by the McCormick Library consists of letters between Ian or Sue Finlay and literary friends John Furnival and Derek and Peggie Stanford. Finlay collaborated with both Furnival and Stanford on several works, and letters describe those joint ventures, as well as Finlay’s other projects between 1968 and 1970. Finlay’s dispute with Fulcrum Press is also described in these letters, especially Stanford’s efforts to help Finlay by enlisting support from other authors. Stanford’s carbon copies of his side of the correspondence are included.
The McCormick Library holds a large collection of Finlay’s published poems, cards, prints, and booklets, as well as the issues of Poor. Old. Tired. Horse., announcements of publications, and other pieces of ephemera.
