Scope and Content

The Untide Press was founded by William Everson, Kemper Nomland, Kermit Sheets and William R. Eshelman, in a camp of conscientious objectors in Waldport, Oregon in 1943, as an expression of protest against World War II. Vladimir Dupré was active in Untide after it was founded. The name originated in opposition to the camp weekly called The Tide, the slogan of the press being "What is not Tide is Untide". Moving later to Cascade Locks, Oregon, in December 1945 and, after the War, to Pasadena, the press produced a little magazine entitled The Illiterati, and small books of poems, many of them by the poets and writers who were later to form the nucleus of the San Francisco literary renaissance.
Attempting to bring poetry to the public in an inexpensive and attractive format, the press carefully selected materials and design, and set all the work by hand. It was a part-time non-profit operation; its contributors were unpaid; and its organ, The Illiterati, appeared only occasionally, whenever enough material was assembled for an issue.
The little press garnered Western Books' awards for excellence in printing and design with William Everson's War Elegies (1944), Jacob Sloan's Generation of a Journey (1945) and John Walker's Arma Virumque Cano (1950).
The records of the press, purchased from John B. Nomland, May 23, 1972, have been kept in the order established by the press. They include correspondence with contributors and subscribers from 1943 to 1954, manuscripts of poems and of numbers 4 and 5 of The Illiterati, mock-ups for some of the special pamphlets, a few examples of completed printing, some fairly detailed accounts, a bibliography and promotional material. The Key to Arrangement describes the collection in greater detail.
