Biography

Kenward Gray Elmslie was born in New York City on April 27, 1929, to William Gray Elmslie, a British businessman, and Constance Pulitzer, daughter of newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer. His early childhood was spent in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and he attended preparatory schools in Virginia, Ohio and Massachusetts. He was graduated from Harvard in 1950 with a B.A. in literature and began his writing career as a lyricist and librettist in collaboration with several composers. His published work for the musical theatre includes THE SWEET BYE AND BYE (1966) and LIZZIE BORDEN (1966), music by Jack Beeson; MISS JULIE (1965), music by Ned Rorem, and three works with composer Thomas Pasatieri, THE SEAGULL (1974), WASHINGTON SQUARE (1976), and THREE SISTERS (1986). He also wrote both the book and lyrics for a musical, THE GRASS HARP (1972) based on Truman Capote's novel.
In 1954 Elmslie began to publish his stories, short plays and verse in little magazines and gather them into collections: PAVILIONS (1961), POWER PLANT POEMS (1967), ALBUM (1969), CIRCUS NERVES (1971), MOTOR DISTURBANCE (1971), ORCHID STORIES (1973), TROPICALISM (1975), TOPIARY TREK (1977), MOVING RIGHT ALONG (1980), SUNG SEX (1990), CHAMP DUST (1994), BARE BONES (1995), ROUTINE DISRUPTIONS (1998). He also began to collaborate with graphic artists, especially with Joe Brainard on THE BABY BOOK (1965), THE CHAMP (1968), THE 1967 GAMEBOOK CALENDAR (1967), and SHINY RIDE (1972); with Donna Dennis on 26 BARS; and with Ken Tisa on BIMBO DIRT (1982) and PALAIS BIMBO SNAPSHOTS (1982).
In 1973 Elmslie became the editor of the Poetry Project's literary magazine, Z, and continued through issue ZZZZZZ in 1978. He was also editor and publisher of Z Press, publishing work by John Ashbery, Bill Berkson, Jean Boulte, Joe Brainard, Ian Finlay, Steve Gianakos, Joanne Kyger, Harry Matthews, Ron Padgett, James Schulyer, Anne Waldman and Marjorie Walish, among others.
Elmslie belonged to the American Guild of Authors and Composers, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and the Dramatists' Guild. His "Power Plant Sestina" (1967) received an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. ROUTINE DISRUPTIONS (1971) received the Frank O'Hara Award.

Correspondence related to specific Elmslie works, Z Press and the Joe Brainard and John Latouche material may be found throughout the collection.
A) General Correspondence: Documents the collaborative nature of much of Elmslie's writing and his support of the art, music and literary communities of the 1950s through 1990s. Correspondents include writers John Ashbery, Ted Berrigan, Maxine Chernoff, Diane Di Prima, Kenneth Koch, Joanne Kyger, Bernadette Mayer, Eileen Myles, James Schuyler, and Anne Waldman; artists Joe Brainard, Donna Dennis, Kenneth Tisa; composers Jack Beeson, Thomas Pasatieri, Claibe Richardson, Ned Rorem, and others.

PERFORMANCE/THEATRE WORKS

Scope and Content of Series

SERIES 2) PERFORMANCE/THEATRE WORKS: Arranged chronologically in three subseries: A) Published Works, B) Unpublished Works and C) Announcements and Flyers.
A) Published Works: Arranged by year of publication, given in parentheses, then alphabetically by title within a single year. The material for each title is arranged in order of production. Related correspondence, if any, is first, followed by folders that may contain notes and outlines, work-in-progress files, drafts, and proofs. Collateral material, such as music scores, photographs or illustrations, is next, followed by advertisements, programs and reviews. In those instances where a sound or film recording was made of a work, material related to these formats concludes the section.
B) Unpublished Works: Arranged alphabetically by title or first line and contains handwritten, typescript, paste-up, and photocopied texts.
C) Announcement and Flyers: Arranged chronologically and contains a variety of promotional formats-- newspaper and magazine advertisements, mailings and posters-- for performances and readings of works by Elmslie.
