First Beatles Book 1995
First Published Book 1984
Longford-Limerick Press was a tiny publisher of poetry and prose chapbooks. I founded the press with Terry Sexton in 1982 when we were both living out in Boston, Massachusetts. We probably put out about five individual titles. I had lost track of this series of chapbooks until Terry mailed me two of them from Milwaukee. "Longford Notes: Poems in the Key of Rage" was just about Land's End as for as my poetry writing life went.
During the autmn semester of 2016, I began to transport my personal archives to the Greenville Technical College library. With retirement right around the corner, it seemed to a good idea to see that there was a permanent depository for books, magazines and papers. The project quickly expanded into a professional objective for the 2016-17 college year. I am now collecting published works of my colleagues in the Public Services, Arts and Sciences Division. It's been a new experience working as a detective of research.
