Wynne Francis Collection: Magazine and Small Press Ephemera

The records in this series consist primarily of the research files maintained by Wynne Francis related to her collection of magazine and small press ephemera. The later dates with some of the file contents suggest that David McKnight likely added found material to the files. These files arrived boxed together in the alphabetical order that is maintained in the series, so even if a file seems to represent a later period than that which Wynne Francis was collecting in, the file remains with this series. Researchers interested in a specific title should also consult the file lists found in Series 1, David McKnight’s magazine and small press research files.

The files are in alphabetical order by title of the magazine or small press; there was no distinction made between the two formats in the files that arrived with this series. The file contents include some original, but mostly photocopied magazine copies and excerpts; related articles and news clippings; subscription and ordering information; brochures; catalogues; and some correspondence. The file contents are maintained in chronological order.
