The Poetry Collection is happy to announce the opening for research of the Ross Runfola Charles Bukowski Collection, consisting primarily of typescript signed poems by Charles Bukowski. The collection also includes artwork by Charles Bukowski and Jack Micheline, two Black Sparrow Press broadsides of poems by Bukowski, posters advertising readings by Bukowski, video of Bukowski readings and documentary films, and a small file of correspondence from Bukowski to various recipients. The collection also contained books and periodicals, including the 1944 issue of Story magazine in which Bukowski’s first published work appeared.
The materials in this collection were part of a larger private collection assembled by Ross Runfola and were donated by Runfola in 2011. The finding aid for the collection is available here. For more information about the collection, please contact email@example.com.
