Scope and Content
Jerrald Ranta, a former professor of English at the University of Wyoming and
Kent State University alumnus, donated this collection of ephemera and publications
related to 20th-century poet Michael Horovitz. Ranta corresponded with Frankfurt-born
British emigré Michael Horovitz (1935- ), whose magazine New Departures
and traveling performance-like poetry readings were well known among the literati
of the counterculture movement of the late 1960's and early 1970's. This collection
contains numerous photocopies of poems and of articles by and about Micahel
Horovitz, as well as some small-press literary magazines and advertising ephemera,
and two letters from Horovitz to Ranta.
