Scope and Content of Collection

Accession Processed in 2006
The Holly Prado Papers include material spanning the career of Holly Prado, from examples of early efforts written in her youth in the 1950s, through her professional work into the late 1990s, with the greatest portion of material dating from the 1970s and 1980s. Prado's personal journals make up the largest portion of the collection. The second largest group of material consists of poetry, sometimes including more than one draft, annotations and corrections. The balance of the collection includes correspondence, notes, and materials relating to Prado's active involvement with teaching and literary events.
The collection is arranged in ten series: 1) BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIAL, 2) CORRESPONDENCE, 3) WRITINGS, 4) NOTES, 5) READINGS, 6) TEACHING MATERIALS, 7) CONFERENCES, 8) JOURNALS, 9) WRITINGS BY OTHERS, and 10) MISCELLANEOUS.
SERIES 1: BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIALS
The BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIALS series contains material providing general background on Holly Prado's life and career. It includes drafts of her resumes from the 1970s through late 1980s, brief biographies, a grant application, and newspaper clippings of articles about Prado.
SERIES 2: CORRESPONDENCE
The CORRESPONDENCE series includes personal and professional correspondence. Given Prado's active involvement with poetry publications and acquaintance with other writers, professional and personal may overlap, with personal letters from friends occasionally including comments on Prado's work. Query letters to poetry journals and magazines are also present.
SERIES 3: WRITINGS
The WRITINGS series chiefly consists of Prado's poetry, typically in typescript form, sometimes annotated. Some examples of Prado's earliest writing efforts from the 1950s and early 1960s are also present, including work Prado submitted for publication while still a student at Albion College and clippings of a column Prado wrote for the Albion College student newspaper.
The series is arranged in six subseries: A) Childhood and Early Writings, B) Student Work, C) Poems, D) Poetry Collections, E) Poetry Miscellaneous, and F) Prose.
A) The Childhood and Early Writings subseries includes material Prado describes in a note as writing created "before I had any idea I could have a writing life." Earliest material includes poems from the early 1950s. Short prose and a one act play are also present.
B) The Student Work subseries primarily includes short prose written while Prado was a student at Albion College, between 1954 and 1960, writing under her given name, Holly Johnson. Several clippings of her column for the Albion College student newspaper, The Pleiad, are also included. A paper, written for a Contemporary American Literature class taught by Peter Marin at Cal State, Los Angeles, is located is this subseries as well.
C) The Poems subseries includes individual poems and prose-poems, finished and unfinished, some in more than one version. Poems are typically typed, occasionally with handwritten annotations, and date from the late 1970s to early 1990s.
D) The Poetry Collections subseries includes groups of poems from Prado's files with a collective title. Some work is grouped thematically, some created as a poem cycle, and some grouped in collections intended for publication. Work dates from the 1970s to early 1990s.
E) The Poetry Miscellaneous subseries consists of poems and prose-poems from Prado's files grouped to represent various date spans. The largest portion of material dates from the 1970s.
F) The Prose subseries includes several works of short prose, typed drafts and newspaper clippings of Prado's reviews for the Los Angeles Times, and a draft of her unpublished novel The Bright Obvious from 1989.
SERIES 4: NOTES
The NOTES series chiefly consists of notepads which Prado and her husband, actor and poet Harry Northup, kept by their bedside between 1980 and 1995. On the notepads Prado and Northup shared thoughts, feelings, observations, and short messages. The subseries also includes a small amount of Prado's writing notes, notes from and about classes she attended in 1963 and 1964, and some working lists of material she had submitted for publication and information about sources for grants and awards.
SERIES 5: READINGS
The READINGS series includes preparatory material and annotated poems used for live readings during the 1970s and 1980s.
SERIES 6: TEACHING MATERIALS
The TEACHING MATERIALS series includes preparatory material for writing workshops led by Prado, and courses for which Prado was a guest lecturer.
SERIES 7: CONFERENCES
The CONFERENCES series chiefly consists of notes and organizational material for conferences in which Prado participated. The largest amount of material relates to the Woman's Words Conference (1975), including promotional materials which Prado helped create and a packet of writings by various authors who participated in the conference.
SERIES 8: JOURNALS
The JOURNALS series comprises the largest amount of material in the collection. Prado's personal journals date from 1960 through 1999. Influenced by Jungian psychology, Prado has described journals an important tool for "nourishing" her writing. They record thoughts, experiences, and dreams, and sometimes include drawings, photographs, or ephemera. Some journals deal specifically with trips Prado took, or dreams and are typically handwritten.
This series is restricted. Patrons must obtain written permission from Holly Prado before viewing these journals.
SERIES 9: WRITINGS BY OTHERS
The WRITINGS BY OTHERS series includes a small selection of material, chiefly short prose, by authors other than Prado on subjects of interest to her. Works of particular note in this series are essays written by students evaluating Prado's writing.
SERIES 10: MISCELLANEOUS
The MISCELLANEOUS series includes material relating to a memorial service for poet Leland Hickman; a collection of newspaper clippings, correspondence and other material relating to a dispute between Los Angeles area poets and the Los Angeles Times Book Review, which led to an organized demonstration in 1988; an abstract photograph; a calendar; and miscellaneous publication announcements.

Biography

Poet Holly Prado was born in 1938 in Lincoln, Nebraska. She received a B.A. from Albion College in 1960. After graduating, she moved to Los Angeles, where she remained to become an active, influential member of the Southern California literary community as a poet, educator, and regular participant in live poetry readings and literary events. She married actor and poet Harry Northup in 1990.
Prado has been involved in poetry and literary education for all age groups since the mid-1960s. She taught English at John Marshall High School in Los Angeles (1965-1972), participated in a Poetry in the Schools Program sponsored by the Department of Labor and National Endowment for the Arts (1973-1974), and has taught numerous writing workshops offered through a variety of schools and organizations. As of 2006 she is included as a faculty member of the University of Southern California Master of Professional Writing Program.
Prado began writing for publication while still in college, but attributes a 1970 writing workshop taught by Alvaro Cardona-Hine with helping her develop her mature style. Prado's first published collection was Nothing Breaks Off at the Edge (1976). Her other published collections include Losses (1977), Specific Mysteries (1990), Esperanza: Poems for Orpheus (1998), and These Mirrors Prove It: Selected Poems and Prose, 1970-2003 (2005). Her poetry has also appeared in various anthologies, poetry journals, and magazines such as Ms. and Rolling Stone. In addition to poetry, Prado has contributed essays and reviews to several periodicals, notably the Los Angeles Times Book Review, and published two books of prose, Feasts (1976) and Gardens (1985). Prado became a founding member of the Cahuenga Press Poets Publishing Cooperative in 1989 with James Cushing, Phoebe MacAdams, and Harry Northup.
Prado's work is often noted for her use of a mythic voice and references to classical myths and mysteries. In the introduction to her collection Greatest Hits (2000), she described the work in Specific Mysteries and Word Rituals (released as a spoken word recording in 1993) as "ceremonies making words sacred." Jungian psychology has also had a significant influence on Prado's work, especially her enthusiasm for keeping personal journals. In the literary journal Chrysalis (no. 7, 1979) she discussed personal journaling as an important tool for keeping in touch with the unconscious, developing intuitiveness, and exploring emotional states without self-censoring, as well as a means of "nourishing" writing intended for publication. Her personal journals record thoughts, experiences, and dreams and sometimes include drawings, photographs, or ephemera.
