Scope and Contents Note
The Everson Papers include corresondence between the author and the well-known book
dealer Henry Wenning. Wenning was a friend and confidante to a great number of
authors, many of whom are included in Washington University's Modern Literature
Collection. He acted as publisher for Everson's poetry collection, the Blowing of the Seed (1966), and much of this
correspondence deals with this book. The collection also contains a number of poetry
manuscripts and galley proofs bearing Everson's corrections.
