Abstract: The Lawrence Lipton papers, 1883-2009 (bulk 1950-1975), consist of correspondence, interviews, manuscripts, typescripts, audio recordings, clippings, periodicals, photographs, motion pictures, and ephemera, created and collected by Beat Generation chronicler, novelist, and poet, Lawrence Lipton. The collection documents Lipton's prolific work as a novelist, poet, and columnist through typescripts and manuscripts of his works; correspondence between Lipton and members of the Beats, including Allen Ginsberg; and interviews that Lipton conducted with a variety of notable writers and musicians during the 1960s. Lipton was born in Lodz, Poland, on October 10, 1898. In 1903, Lipton and his family immigrated to the United States -- eventually settling in Chicago. Lipton worked at various times as a graphic artist, a journalist, the publicity director of a large movie theater, a writer and poet, and a jazz composer. In the 1920s, Lipton joined an influential circle of writers in Chicago, including Ben Hecht, Carl Sandburg, Edgar Lee Masters, Sherwood Anderson, and Harriet Monroe. In the late 1930s, Lipton married his third wife Georgiana Randolph Craig, a well-known author of mystery novels and short stories who wrote under the pseudonym, Craig Rice. In addition to his earlier mystery fiction and articles for such magazines as Atlantic Monthly, Chicago Review, and Quarterly Review of Literature, Lipton wrote two literary novels, "Brother, The Laugh is Bitter" (1942) and "In Secret Battle" (1944), and a book of poetry, "Rainbow at Midnight" (1955), which was a Book Club for Poetry selection. In 1959, Lipton published "The Holy Barbarians," the book that linked him to the Beat Generation literary movement. When Lipton wrote "The Holy Barbarians," he had settled in Venice, California, where his home became an informal center for the arts, with Lipton functioning as both teacher and catalyst. In Venice, Lipton was associated with the movement to restore poetry as a vocal art long before the Beats became famous, and he began experimenting with poetry and jazz in 1956. During the last years of his life, Lipton wrote a long-running column of political commentary in the "Los Angeles Free Press" called "Radio Free America." Lipton died in Los Angeles on July 9, 1975.

Biographical note

Lawrence Lipton was born in Lodz, Poland, on October 10, 1898, and brought to America in 1903 by his father, Abraham Lipton. The family moved to Chicago where Abraham Lipton had close friends and relatives. When Lipton was fourteen, his father died.
Lipton worked at various times as a graphic artist, a journalist, the publicity director of a large movie theater, a writer and poet, and a jazz composer. In the 1920s, Lipton joined an influential circle of writers in Chicago, including Ben Hecht, Carl Sandburg, Edgar Lee Masters, Sherwood Anderson, and Harriet Monroe. Lipton also married his first wife, Dorothy Omansky, during the 1920s. After Dorothy died, Lipton married Betty Weinberg, with whom he had a son, James Lipton. In the late 1930s, Lipton divorced Betty and married Georgiana Randolph Craig, a well-known author of mystery novels and short stories who wrote under the pseudonym, Craig Rice. After divorcing Georgiana, Lipton married Nettie Esther Brooks in 1948.
In addition to Lipton's earlier mystery fiction and articles for such magazines as Atlantic Monthly, Chicago Review, and Quarterly Review of Literature, he wrote two literary novels, Brother, The Laugh is Bitter (1942) and In Secret Battle (1944), and a book of poetry, Rainbow at Midnight (1955), which was a Book Club for Poetry selection.
The Holy Barbarians, the book that linked Lipton to the Beat writers, was published in 1959, when he was sixty-one years old. The cast of characters in the book included such "name" personalities as the writers Allen Ginsberg, Kenneth Rexroth, Kenneth Patchen, Stuart Z. Perkoff, Gregory Corso, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and Dylan Thomas. When Lipton wrote The Holy Barbarians he had settled in Venice, California, where Lipton's home became an informal center for the arts -- with Lipton functioning as both teacher and catalyst. In Venice, Lipton was associated with the movement to restore poetry as a vocal art long before the Beats became famous, and he began experimenting with poetry and jazz in 1956. In 1957, he produced and directed a series of poetry-and-jazz concerts that became the first West Coast Poetry and Jazz Festival, dedicated to Dylan Thomas and playing to capacity audiences during its two-week run. In 1958, Lipton produced Jazz Canto, released by World Pacific Records.
Published in dozens of literary magazines and journals, Lipton's poetry and prose linked central themes relating to the social responsibility of the artist to participate in the formation of a society that was more than a collective. As a visionary, Lipton wanted the new society to be rational, functional, and responsible to the deepest needs of the human soul. During the last years of his life, Lipton wrote a long-running column of political commentary in the Los Angeles Free Press called "Radio Free America." Lipton died in Los Angeles on July 9, 1975.

Scope and Contents

The Lawrence Lipton papers, 1883-2009 (bulk 1950-1975), consist of correspondence, interviews, manuscripts, typescripts, periodicals, audio recordings, motion pictures, clippings, photographs, and ephemera, created and collected by novelist, poet, and Beat Generation chronicler Lawrence Lipton. The collection documents Lipton's prolific work as a novelist, poet, and columnist through a variety of materials. Typescripts and manuscripts of his works--including Erotic Revolution, Rainbow at Midnight--and Lipton's columns for Radio Free America, Interface, and the Los Angeles Free Press showcase Lipton's writing styles and core themes. Correspondence between Lipton and members of the Beats, including Allen Ginsberg, as well as Lipton's third wife, novelist Craig Rice, reveals Lipton's central position among the Beat movement. And interviews--included as both recorded audio and, sometimes, as textual transcripts--that Lipton conducted with a variety of notable writers and musicians during the 1960s provide examples of literary and political dialogue of that era. Also included are items that Lipton collected as research material, newspapers and magazines (many of which feature Lipton's published poetry), photographs, and motion pictures. Many of Lipton's articles and poems written in the era of the Beat Movement deal with subjects pertinent to "beatnik" ideology such as anti-materialism, sexual liberation, exploration of eastern philosophy, criticism of western Christendom, experimentation with psychedelic drugs, and denouncement of homophobia. Much of Lipton's poetry in this collection relates to his poetry and jazz project, as Lipton often combined these two art forms as a skilled jazz music composer.


The collection is organized into the following series:
  1. Works by Lawrence Lipton
  2. Correspondence
  3. Works collected by Lawrence Lipton
  4. Interview transcripts
  5. Subject Files

Audiovisual material 1940-1977


Numbered audio tapes


This series comprises three separate numbered sets of audio tapes. The first two sets, which are described in the first two records of this subseries and include prefixes ("SC:T" or "T") before each tape number, are much smaller than the third, larger set. All three numbered sets are mostly chronological, so that the lower tape numbers reflect earlier dates -- though there are exceptions and outliers to this rule. Bulk date ranges are included for some of the boxes to reflect chronological patterns.
An incomplete index that documents the contents of some of the tapes is available on request. This index only describes parts of the large numbered set (the tape numbers without "SC" or "T" prefixes). Specifically, this index describes the contents of tape nos. 102-170; 185-190; 200; 321-322; 401-438; and 452-599.
Ranges of tape numbers reflected in each record's title are not always comprehensive. Within some of the larger ranges, there are small gaps or "staggers" in tape numbers that are not always reflected in record titles.

Scope and Contents

The majority of these tapes consist of Lipton's recordings of public radio broadcasts. However, original interviews conducted by Lipton with various authors and artists are also recorded on these tapes. These recordings also document informal conversations and poetry readings.

Scope and Contents

Audio tape described in this series is 1/4" (6.35 mm) in width.
Box 100

Tape nos. SC:T2-SC:T79, SC:T123 1960-1967, undated

Some of the tapes documented in this subseries' larger, separate numbering scheme (the set without prefixes before tape numbers) are also in boxes labeled with the "SC" prefix, but those labels are often crossed out and are most likely out-dated. An index for the "SC:T" tapes was not included with the collection, but some of the tapes' boxes are labeled with the recordings' content (none of these labels correspond with Lipton's tape index for the larger numbered set).

Scope and Contents

1/4" audio tape recordings (22 reels). The majority of these recordings are of public radio broadcasts on various topics. Includes a small number of interviews (e.g., "First interview. Former sheriff, Sep. 2, 1960") that may have been conducted by Lawrence Lipton or by public radio hosts -- the labels are minimal. Also includes tape labeled "Easter Love-In, March, 1967."
