Biography / Administrative History

Irving Rosenthal was born in San Francisco on October 9, 1930. He attended Pomona College and then the University of Chicago, where he did graduate work in human development.
In the late 1950s, Rosenthal became editor of The Chicago Review and succeeded in publishing poetry by Jack Kerouac, prose by Edward Dahlberg, and the first parts of William Burroughs's Naked Lunch before the University of Chicago censored his editorial practice. After resigning from The Chicago Review, he moved to New York and started Big Table magazine with the help of a colleague. Its first issue included the entire contents of the suppressed 1959 winter edition of The Chicago Review. Although Big Table survived only briefly, its few issues strengthened Rosenthal's connection to both the Dahlberg circle and the Beats.
Living in New York, Rosenthal developed particularly close relationships with Allen Ginsberg, Hubert Huncke, and other figures in the Beat movement. He subsequently visited Burroughs and Paul Bowles in Tangier and lived there from 1962 to1964. During this period he also began work on a novel, Sheeper, which was later published by Grove Press in 1967. Returning to New York, Rosenthal was drawn into the orbit of the experimental film maker, Jack Smith, and appeared in Flaming Creatures and No President.
In 1967 Rosenthal moved back to San Francisco with George Harris, founder of the Cockettes, to start the Kaliflower commune, which continues to exist and where he still lives.

Scope and Content Note

This series contains incoming and outgoing correspondence. Rosenthal often made carbon copies of his outgoing correspondence, so many files in this series offer insight into the development of his personal and professional relationships with a number of prominent Beat figures, including Allen Ginsberg, Herbert Huncke, and William Burroughs. As an editor, much of Rosenthal's correspondence included the exchange of manuscripts and other materials. Rather than removing these items and placing them in a separate series, we have left all items with the correspondence files in order to preserve the original context of these materials. Accordingly, in addition to correspondence, this series contains a large number of manuscripts and typescripts, as well as artwork, photographs, booklets, periodicals, and ephemera.
