The University at Buffalo Libraries and the Northeast Modern Language Association support a joint short-term visiting fellowship for research at the University at Buffalo Poetry Collection, or the University at Buffalo Rare and Special Books Collection.
Founded in 1937 by Charles Abbott, the Poetry Collection now holds one of the world’s largest collections of poetry first editions and other titles, little literary magazines, broadsides and anthologies, and more than 150 archives and manuscript collections from a wide range of poets, presses, magazines, and organizations. The Poetry Collection holds the archives of the Jargon Society as well as large manuscript collections by authors like James Joyce, William Carlos Williams, Dylan Thomas, Wyndham Lewis, Robert Duncan, Theodore Enslin, Helen Adam, Robert Kelley, and many more.
Founded on the Collection of Thomas B. Lockwood, the Rare and Special Books Collection features literary first editions and finely printed books from 1600 to the present.
Detailed descriptions of the University at Buffalo holdings in the Poetry Collection and the Rare and Special Book Collection can be found here.
Fellows will receive a stipend of up to $1,200 for a one-month visiting term.
