Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Richard Hugo was born December 21, 1923 in Seattle and was raised in White Center, a working class district of Seattle. Hugo lived with his grandparents for most of his childhood and early adult life. He served as a bombardier in Italy during World War II. Following the war, Hugo attended the University of Washington, where he studied writing with Theodore Roethke. He earned a BA in 1948 and a MA in 1952. In 1959 Hugo, along with Carolyn Kizer, Earl Pritchard and Nelson Bentley, founded the literary magazine Poetry Northwest.

While continuing to write poetry, Hugo supported himself for 13 years by working for the Boeing Aircraft Company in various jobs, including that of a technical writer. In 1963 he left Boeing to revisit Italy. He returned to the United States in 1964 to accept a teaching position at the University of Montana, where he became Director of the Creative Writing Program in 1971, and where he continued to teach until his death.

During the last two decades of his life, Hugo's reputation as a writer grew with the publication of nine collections of poetry, three chapbooks, a collection of essays and a detective novel. He was twice nominated for the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. In 1968, the Rockefeller Foundation awarded him a traveling grant which allowed him to revisit Italy. In 1976 he was appointed editor of the Yale Younger Poets Series. In 1977 Hugo received a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, which allowed him to live in Scotland from 1977-1978. At various times he was a guest lecturer at the University of Iowa, University of Arkansas, University of Colorado, and University of Washington. Hugo survived the loss of a lung to cancer in 1980, but died of leukemia in Seattle on October 22, 1982.

Posthumous publications of Hugo's work include a chapbook, Sea Lanes Out; collected poems, Making Certain It Goes On; and a collection of autobiographical essays, The Real West Marginal Way.

Accession No. 3655-001: Richard Hugo papers, 1942-1983 (bulk 1973-1982)Return to Top

11.08 cubic feet (21 boxes plus film, videotape, audiocassette, and 1 oversized vertical file)

Scope and Content: Correspondence, notebooks, literary manuscripts, publications, photographs, personal documents, film.

This accession mainly reflects the later period of Hugo's career, from the 1970s through 1982. Acquired from Hugo's widow, Ripley Hugo, it also includes publications and plaques acquired from her subsequently, typescripts and galleys from publisher W.W. Norton and correspondence photocopied from originals lent by Norton. Some of the outgoing letters are originals which were donated by their recipients. The poetry notebooks are undated, but cover the later period of Hugo's career; Ripley Hugo attempted to assign approximate dates to some of them.

The Poetry Collections series consists mainly of typescripts or galleys of Hugo's published collections. An unpublished "New Book," however, consists of typed drafts of poems, some of which show minor revisions and some of which never appeared in book form.

The Publications series consists of many, though not all, of the periodicals and a few monographs in which Hugo's poems and other writings appeared. The annotated books represent only a small part of his library.

The Yale Younger Poets series represents Hugo's work as editor of that series from 1977 to 1982. He selected the winner of the competition each year and wrote an introduction to the winner's book. The bulk of the series consists of drafts of Hugo's introductions.

The Ripley Hugo series is primarily papers of his widow concerning Hugo's posthumous publications.

Terminology:

  • Galleys: uncut printings of a publication, with page breaks not made, which may show author's corrections
  • Page proofs: facsimiles of pages as they will appear in publication
  • Printer's copy: printed or typed version, copy-edited with instructions for the printer

Arrangement: The original order of the correspondence in the University of Washington's collection was retained whenever an order was apparent, hence General Correspondence and Outgoing Letters are arranged chronologically while Incoming Letters are alphabetical. Poetry drafts are arranged in alphabetical order by the title of the poem as it was eventually published, with previous titles indicated in parentheses. Untitled poems were listed by first line. Many of the drafts were found folded inside the notebooks and some were in unrelated files; these have been incorporated into the order described. The material in the Poetry Collections series had been arranged and listed alphabetically since there was no apparent original order. Essays were arranged in the order they appeared in Hugo's two published collections, listed by published title. All versions were brought together although early versions sometimes differ considerably. Fragments remain because it was not always possible to piece together drafts. Preliminary or alternative titles of essays are indicated in parentheses. In the Yale Younger Poets series, the drafts of Hugo's introductions to the winners' books and related papers are grouped for each publication in the series, in the order that they were published.

Restrictions on Access: Certain series in the Hugo papers were closed or subject to restrictions on their use at the time of microfilming.

Rrestricted material was filmed on separate reels which will not be circulated until such time as each restriction is lifted or the material is opened for research use. The restricted material is listed on the inventory in sequence with the rest of the papers.

Acquisition Info: The bulk of the Richard Hugo papers were purchased from Ripley Hugo and were received in July 1985. Publications, plaques and additional material were added by Ripley Hugo in December 1985. Typescripts and galleys of Making Certain It Goes On and The Real West Marginal Way were received from W.W. Norton in January 1986. Norton also loaned their correspondence with Hugo for photocopying.

Separated Material: Box 21 containing material from the University of Montana (Missoula) Creative Writing Program under Hugo's direction was transferred to the University of Montana Archives, January 2019.

Processing Info: Processing completed in 1985-1986.

This accession is a merger of Accession Nos. 3655-001, 3655-002, 3655-003 and 3655-004.

Accession No. 3655-006: Microfilm of Richard Hugo papers, 1942-1985Return to Top

2.88 cubic feet (11 microfilm reels (positive))

Scope and Content: Microfilmed literary manuscripts, poetry notebooks, correspondence, publications, photographs, personal documents.

This microfilm contains material from the University of Washington Libraries Special Collections and from the University of Montana Mansfield Library. The University of Washington materials consist of nearly all of Accession No. 3655-001, described above. The films also include 17 notebooks borrowed from the University of Montana. The notebooks from the University of Montana's collection are undated but are Hugo's earliest, beginning with class notes from his student days at the University of Washington. In addition to the notebooks, the University of Montana loaned 18 loose pages of literary manuscripts (an essay and several drafts of a poem).

See note in accession 3655-001 for an explanation of terms used to describe different types of drafts or copies of works.

Arrangement: The notebooks from the University of Montana's collection are numbered 1 through 15; two are unnumbered. Though their order is thought to have been established by Hugo when he donated them, the notebooks may not be in correct chronological sequence.As the inventory to the microfilm generally follows the inventory to the Hugo papers in Accession No. 3655-001, the entire inventory is not repeated here. The following inventory lists only the University of Montana materials, which are not part of Accession No. 3655-001. University of Montana papers were added to the inventory and filmed preceding their University of Washington counterparts. A detailed inventory to the microfilms is available in Special Collections. All of the University of Montana materials have been noted as such on the inventory and identified as such on film. All other filmed materials are from the University of Washington Libraries.

Restrictions on Access: All restricted material was filmed on separate reels which will not be circulated until such time as each restriction is lifted or the material is opened for research use. The restricted material is listed on the inventory in sequence with the rest of the papers.

Processing Info: Filmed in April 1988 by Alpha Information Management .

The papers filmed from the University of Washington were processed in 1985 and 1986.

For the purpose of the microfilm edition, the archives at the University of Montana Mansfield Library loaned Richard Hugo papers from its collection. These consisted of 17 notebooks and several literary manuscripts which were donated to the University archives by Hugo in 1968. The University archives staff chose to leave loose manuscript pages in place in the Hugo notebooks, and these pages were filmed in the order that they appear in the notebooks.

Certain categories of material in the Richard Hugo papers (Accession No. 3655-001) were omitted from the microfilm. These include:

  • galleys, page proofs and printer's copies of Hugo's books
  • unedited typescripts of Hugo's books which appear to be identical to the printed text
  • journals and other publications
  • three-dimensional objects
  • correspondence regarding permission to publish or reproduce Hugo's work
  • unannotated books

Literary manuscripts were counted and listed by number of pages; all other series were counted and listed by number of items.

Separated Material: Reels 12 (both positive and negative), comprised of administrative correspondence from Hugo's chairmanship of the University of Montana Creative Writing Program and as faculty member, was transferred to the University of Montana (Missoula) Archives, January 2019 along with the originals (box 21 of accession 3655-001) from which they were filmed.
