Camp Waldport records

Repository:University of Oregon Libraries, Special Collections and University Archives
Summary:Camp Waldport, or Civilian Public Service (CPS) Camp No. 56, was a conscientious objector camp in Oregon during WWII, and was home to the Fine Arts Group. Among Camp Waldport's interns were several poets and artists who are considered to have contributed to the Beat Movement and the "San Francisco Renaissance" of the 1950s and 60s, including Adrian Wilson, Kermit Sheets, painter Morris Graves, and poets William Everson and Glen Coffield. The camp's press, the Untide Press, published volumes of poetry by Glen Coffield, William Everson, Kenneth Patchen, Bill Shank, and Jacob Sloan. The Illiterati, a periodical published out of the nearby Cascade Locks CPS camp, published and supported the work of the Fine Arts Group at Waldport, along with the writing of Kenneth Patchen, Kenneth Rexroth, Henry Miller, and others. Included in the Camp Waldport collection are records and publication of the Untide Press, a camp project that published volumes of poetry by Glen Coffield, William Everson, Kenneth Patchen, Bill Shank, and Jacob Sloan. Also included are copies of The Tide (a Camp Waldport newsletter) and The Illiterati (a fine arts publication of the camp at Cascade Locks); letters; Brethren Public Service Committee bulletins and memos; copies of various publications from other C.P.S. Camps, such as the ones at Cascade Locks and Elkton; and miscellany.
