Angus Maclise archive acquired by Columbia University

Columbia University's Rare Book and Manuscript Library has acquired a collection of Angus Maclise's work. The bundle includes poetry manuscripts, calligraphy, letters to and from friends and family, plus photographs, events flyers, and other ephemera. Most of the handwritten material dates from the 1970s, but the publications cover up to the the 1990s.

Karla Nielsen at Columbia says: "The collection arrived to us fairly well inventoried and described so we expect that we can open it to researchers some time this summer…The collection comes from Johan Kugelberg of the Boo Hooray gallery, who mounted an exhibition of these materials last year." Once the collection is open in the summer, it'll also be searchable online.
