Raymond Foye Files [series]:

The Raymond Foye Files (1978-1996) consist of four subseries: Correspondence, Miscellaneous correspondence, Projects, and Topical. Correspondence is arranged alphabetically and, within folders, chronologically. Foye’s most prolific correspondents are Peg Biderman, John Chance, Kirby Doyle, Eileen Kaufman, and James Schuyler. Many of his other correspondents are well-known, including Victor Bockris, William Burroughs, Bruce Chatwin, Gregory Corso, Diego Cortez, Allen Ginsberg, Herbert Huncke, Ted Joans, Jasper Johns, Bob Kaufman, Michael McClure, Duncan McNaughton, John Montgomery, Robert Motherwell, Gerald Nicosia, Harold Norse, David Salle, Gary Snyder, Michael Stipe, Philip Taaffe, and Anne Waldman. Miscellaneous correspondence contains letters or copies of letters addressed to Peg Biderman, Francesco Clemente, Gregory Corso, Robert Duncan, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Henry Geldzahler, Bob Kaufman, George Scrivani, and John Wieners.

The Projects subseries documents Foye’s editing, curating, and archival activities before, during, and after Hanuman Books. Editing and curating activities include projects for Black Sparrow Press, City Lights Books, Gagosian Gallery, New Directions, and Petersberg Press. Archival projects include researching Samuel Greenberg in New York University's Fales Collection and arranging and describing James Schuyler’s records and Allen Ginsberg’s photo archives. Poets Bob Kaufman and John Wieners are well documented in the Projects subseries.

The Topical subseries contains collected articles, notes, and writings from a variety of authors and artists. Manuscripts from John Chance, Kirby Doyle, Lewis Ellingham, and Cookie Mueller, lecture notes from a 1979 Philip Lamantia poetry class, and an invitation to Andy Warhol’s memorial service are also included in the Topical subseries.
