The Archives and Special Collections reading room will be closed March 12-16 so we can move into our new space. On March 19 we will open our new reading room in the Maxine Houghton Wallin Special Collections Research Center on the ground floor of Andersen Library.
Upper Midwest Literary Archives Receive Grant for Prairie Poets and Press
The Upper Midwest Literary Archives (UMLA) have received a Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grant to increase access to the archives of three pivotal Minnesota poets and one premier literary press: Robert Bly, Margaret Hasse, Bill Holm, and Milkweed Editions. The project, Prairie Poets and Press: Literary Lives of the Upper Midwest, will reveal and provide access to Minnesota’s creative and prolific literary community for researchers here and abroad.
