Scope and Contents Note

Group I, Accession: 1579

Letters, manuscripts, editorial matter, 1978-1980.

The material in Group I consists for the most part of what Tom Clark has termed his “Naropa Archive, i.e., material he gathered together during his 2 year investigation of the Naropa Institute. Naropa, located in Boulder, Colorado, which includes a strong Poetics Department, headed by Allen Ginsberg and Anne Waldman, has been a source of controversy in the American poetry community during the past several years. Of particular note was the event which came to be known as “the Merwin Incident,” and it was this incident which served as the main stimulus for Clark's own investigations. In November of 1975, the prominent poet William S. Merwin and a female companion, both of whom were enrolled in an advance meditation course under the tutelage of Chögyam Trungpa, president of the Naropa Institute, became involved in a violent altercation with Trungpa during a Halloween party. Subsequent to this Merwin left Naropa and the event itself - which was thoroughly documented by Ed Sanders' investigative poetry class at Naropa and published as The Party (Poetry, Crime and Culture Press, 1977), a copy of which is in the Spec. printed collection--became a source of controversy in the American poetry community.

Clark's own investigations into “the Merwin incident” and the Naropa Institute culminated in a series of published articles as well as two books (The Master and The Great Naropa Poetry Wars, copies of which are in the Spec. printed collection). This collection consists of Clark's research materials and includes manuscripts, correspondence, editorial matter and other materials related to this research.

CONTENTS. Ser. I. Correspondence. Ser. II. The Master. Mss., corr., editorial matter. Ser. III. The great Naropa poetry wars. Mss., corr., editorial matter. Ser. IV. The Boulder Monthly. Material related to Clark's association with this magazine. Ser. V. Additional. Tom Clark manuscripts. Ser. VI. Interviews. Ser. VII. Miscellany. Ser. VIII. Magazines.
