Subseries 8.2: Subject Collections 1937-2014

Scope and Content

This subseries contains collections of materials roughly ordered according to subjects, presumably by Vale. The subjects cover diverse topics such as backpacking, Fascism, Satanism, and guns, and people such as Antonin Artaud, J.G. Ballard, Charles Manson, various Beat authors, and members of Throbbing Gristle, a provocative, avant-garde musical and performance art group formed in 1976, whose most significant members were Genesis P-Orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti. There are a number of notable materials, such as rare books by Beat authors, an extensive fan-fiction biography of Charles Manson, and early photographs, correspondence, and ephemera from Throbbing Gristle. Items date from 1937-2014.

Organization and Arrangement

Subseries 9.2: Periodicals 1927-2011

Scope and Content

This subseries contains a physically expansive and thematically diverse collection of V. Vale’s periodicals, præsumably both for leisurely and research-related purposes. The largest category is “Music” which includes cultural and topical periodicals ( Rock Scene, Creem, Trouser Press, etc.) as well as audio technology/production guides ( Keyboard, Electronic Musician, Sound on Sound, etc.). Magazines come from sources as mainstream as the science and technology magazine Wired to those with niche audiences like the German body suspension magazine Expand. Of particular research value might be the four issues of the 1960s psychedelic periodical SF Oracle. The “Lifestyle” category contains materials related to fashion, dining, and local news. There is also a sizable amount of satirical magazines from the 1970s-1990s featuring title such as Spy and National Lampoon, and a collection of serial fiction publications from the late 1920s-1950s and 1980s – Argosy and Armchair Detective, in particular. Periodicals categorized as “International” were written in different languages. Note that while periodicals have been placed under their own discrete, categorical subheadings, many periodicals cover overlapping subjects and could fall under a different category. May contain some zine titles.
