Historical Note

Whole Earth Catalog and CoEvolution Quarterly
Stewart Brand founded the original Whole Earth Catalog in 1968 to provide practical information on tools that would be useful for people creating and living in communes. The Whole Earth Catalog went on to gain wide popularity. All editions of the Catalog sold over 2.5 million copies.
Brand continued to act as editor and publisher of the Catalog through 1972. In 1972 he received the National Book Award for the Last Whole Earth Catalog, which was published by Random House and sold 1.5 million copies. During the same year Brand also founded the Point Foundation, the non-profit organization that runs all Whole Earth activities.
In 1974, Brand edited the Whole Earth Epilog, which was published by Penguin. Between 1980-81, Brand edited The Next Whole Earth Catalog, which was published by Random House.
During the 1970's Brand was also an advisor to California Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. He conceived and organized "The New Games Tournament," and wrote "Two Cybernetic Frontiers," a book about Gregory Bateson.
Between 1974-85, Brand founded, edited, and published CoEvolution Quarterly, which continued as the Whole Earth Review (1985), then later as the Whole Earth Magazine. The CoEvolution Quarterly included a mix of articles, book reviews and lists of resources.
During the years 1983-85, Brand was the editor-in-chief of the Whole Earth Software Catalog. According to Stewart Brand's resume (see below), he founded the Whole Earth Software Review about this time, but unfortunately, it "failed conspicuously." However, it was continued as part of the Whole Earth Review.

Scope and Content

The collection contains the editorial files of Stewart Brand and Jay Kinney, reader correspondence, photographic materials, and memorabilia. Also contains correspondence, clippings, photographs, promotional material, and issues of the magazines.
The Jay Kinney Editorial files span the years 1982 through 1984. During this time, Kinney was an editor and illustrator for the CoEvolution Quarterly. The correspondence is arranged topically by major subjects on which Kinney was working for various issues of the journal. The main topics include Islam, Politics and Religion, the Miskito Indians of Nicaragua.
The Stewart Brand Editorial file, spanning the years 1974 through 1981 comprise the bulk of the collection and contain extensive correspondence, primarily from authors, illustrators, and scientists as well as some correspondence from readers. The correspondence is arranged chronologically and thereunder alphabetically by first initial of the correspondent's last name. On occasion, there are more than one alphabetical range of correspondence within the same general time span. This series also contains legal files from a lawsuit with the Walt Disney Company relating to the use of the Mickey Mouse character, as well as Brand's subject files, and a small amount of his personal papers.
The collection contains several boxes of correspondence from readers in response to various articles in the journals. One issue which generated a fair number of responses was the issue of whether or not to publish two versions of the CoEvolution Quarterly, referred to in the correspondence as the "bold" and "regular" versions.
The photographic layouts series contains the plastic transparencies used in the layout of several issues of the journal from 1976 and 1988.
The collection also contains a fairly complete run of the CoEvolution Quarterly and the Whole Earth Review and several issues of the Whole Earth Magazine.
