Scope and content
The records in this series document correspondence files maintained by both Wynne Francis, and David McKnight, often with writers, scholars, bibliographers, editors, and publishers regarding the history of little magazines and presses. The correspondence is incoming with some outgoing copies, and is arranged in chronological order within each folder.
The first two sub-series consist of Wynne Francis’ files and are organized as her chronological files (1961-1990), and files arranged alphabetically by subject. The third and fourth sub-series are David McKnight’s correspondence files, also organized by his chronological files (1989-2003) and correspondence files arranged alphabetically by subject. Many notable writers and scholars are consulted in these files, including well-known poets, authors and publishers. The series documents the extensive research and connectedness both Francis and McKnight had with the broader Canadian literary community.
