Series III: Lita Hornick Files, 1948-1994

This series includes Lita Hornick's writings that were unpublished or published by an entity other than Kulchur Press. It includes a number of poems and short essays, many written in collaboration with friends (often written as an exquisite corpse exercise), as well as manuscripts for her full length books, Kulchur Queen and the The Green Fuse. The series also includes manuscripts and research notes related to her Master's Essay and her PhD Dissertation, both from degrees she received at Columbia. The research files for her dissertation include correspondence with friends and associates of Dylan Thomas's with whom she corresponded while researching her dissertation on Thomas.
