Series 1: Administrative Records. 1976-1986.

Scope and Content

Taken together, the contents of this series provide insight into the workings of Telewoman, especially as it is situated socially among lesbian, feminist communities, networks and organizations. Whether through the personal extended correspondence of Telewoman’s editor Anne D’Arcy or the general mail and correspondence received by Telewoman, the material gives a view of who and what Telewoman was in conversation with, what some of the primary investments of the publication were and the kind of community D’Arcy was trying to foster locally, nationally and sometimes internationally.
 

Subseries 1.1: Editor's Correspondence. 1976-1986.

Scope and Content

This subseries provides a view into the life and motivations of Telewoman's sole founder and editor, Anne J D'Arcy. It takes the form of outgoing correspondence and incoming correspondence separated by individual. Correspondents include writers, artists, and editors of other lesbian publications who seem to be part of D’Arcy’s close personal network. It includes correspondence regarding a publication controversy between Telewoman and Lace Publications, as well as correspondence about D’Arcy's son Jeremy. D'Arcy's personal papers also include a series of papers written by her on what is known as the Luscher Color Test, a personality test on which she was an expert.

Series 3: Author Files. 1976-1986.

Scope and Content

Telewoman was primarily meant to foster a community of lesbian writers, artists and educators, and the author files provide a view of this community. The files consist of various types of submissions, including poetry, possibly for Telewoman’s Poetry contest(s), and fiction. They also include regularly featured reviews of lesbian and feminist literature. A particularly interesting feature of the newsletter is the spotlight articles; the editor published a highlight piece on a particular woman in each issue that detailed the woman’s life, work and lesbian experience. These features illustrate the highly personal and community oriented nature of the journal. As a corollary, you will find in this series, a number of photographs of individual woman, ostensibly to be published in the spotlight articles, and a number of photographs from Telewoman events.
