Biographical Note

Patricia Goedicke (1931-2006) and Leonard Wallace Robinson (1912-1999) met at the MacDowell Colony in the summer of 1968. According to an article in the February 6, 2000 issue of the Missoulian, the attraction between Goedicke and Robinson was immediate. Shortly after their initial meeting, Goedicke moved in with Robinson, who lived in New York City at the time. In 1971, they moved to San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico, and in 1981 they moved to Missoula, Montana, which became their permanent residence until Robinson’s passing in 1999 and Goedicke’s in 2006.

Leonard Wallace Robinson was born in Malden, Massachusetts, to Henry M. Robinson, Sr. and Ellen Flynn. The religious affiliations of Leonard’s parents (Henry, a Jewish immigrant, and Ellen, a Catholic) would play prominently in his unpublished biographical works. Amongst Leonard’s ten siblings is novelist Henry Morton Robinson (married to Gertrude), author of The Cardinal. In 1935, Leonard graduated from Columbia University. Amongst his classmates were Robert Giroux (of Farrar, Straus and Giroux) and Robert Lax.

Over the next three decades, Robinson held a number of editorial positions, including editor-in-chief of Colliers magazine from 1956-1957 and executive editor for Rinehart, Holt, and Winston. Robinson also published a number of journalistic pieces for The New Yorker and The New York Times, as well as short stories appearing in Harper’s and The New Yorker. In 1950 his short story “Ruin of the Soul” appeared in Prize Stories, the annual collection of O. Henry Award winning stories. Amongst his early book length works are The Secret Service Chief, for which Robinson was a ghost writer, and The Assassin.

Before meeting Goedicke, Leonard married four times. In 1937, Robinson married Frances Fox, a friend of Anais Nin. Robinson’s second wife was Roseanne Smith, to whom he was married from 1943-1954. During his second marriage Robinson’s only child, Roderick, was born in 1946. After divorcing Smith, Robinson married Marie Nyswander, a noted psychiatrist. Nyswander published The Power of Sexual Surrender in 1959 under the name Marie N. Robinson. The two divorced in 1965. Robinson’s fourth wife was Elizabeth Barrett, to whom he was married from 1965 until their divorce in 1971.

Patricia Goedicke was born in Boston, Massachusetts to Helen Mulvey and John McKenna, professor of Neuroanatomy and Psychiatry at Dartmouth College. Patricia had one sibling, Jean-Marie, who served as a professor of English at the American University in Beirut for many years. In high school, Patricia was a highly competitive amateur skier and a contributor to her local newspaper in Hanover, New Hampshire. Patricia published her first poem in Seventeen in 1947 before attending Middlebury College from 1949-1953. There she studied under Robert Frost and other Middlebury faculty. Immediately after college, Patricia worked for Harcourt, Brace and World in New York. While in New York, she continued to sharpen her craft, attending a series of lectures given by W.H. Auden at the YM-YWHA (Young Men’s-Young Women’s Hebrew Association).

In 1956, Patricia married Victor Goedicke, a professor of Mathematics and Astronomy at Ohio University, and moved to Athens, Ohio shortly thereafter. In 1958, John Crowe Ransom accepted three of her poems for the Kenyon Review: “Proudflesh,” “Calypso,” and “Circumnavigation.” Patricia attained her Masters of Arts at Ohio University in 1965. While living in Athens, Patricia befriended poet Hollis Summers, as well as Pat Grean, with whom she edited a local literary journal titled Page One. In 1968, Harcourt, Brace and World, Inc. published her first book of poetry, Between Oceans.

After moving in with Robinson, Goedicke taught English at Hunter College. Robinson taught Journalism at Columbia University. In their brief time in New York, Goedicke and Robinson befriended a number of writers and academics including writers Rosellen Brown, Erica Jong, and Nancy Klein, journalist Paul Brodeur, Professor of Journalism Larry Pinkham, Professor of Dramatic Arts Bert O. States, and editor Rust Hills. As stated in an unpublished interview by Marcia Corbino in 1980, Goedicke and Robinson planned to teach and write in New York before deciding to move to Mexico where they could live on their savings and dedicate more time to writing.

During their years in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuanto, Goedicke and Robinson produced a number of works. From 1971-1981, Robinson wrote a novel titled The Man Who Loved Beauty, which was published in 1976, as well as a number of poems that would appear in his first book of poetry In the Whale. Goedicke wrote four books of poetry during that time: For the Four Corners (1976), The Trail that Turns on Itself (1978), The Dog that Was Barking Yesterday (1980), and Crossing the Same River (1980). For Goedicke and Robinson, San Miguel de Allende provided them with a rich artistic and literary community that consisted of both permanent residents and visiting writers from the United States, including Robert Phillips, Constance Urdang, Donald Finkel, Patricia Hampl, James Moore, C.D. Wright, Forrest Gander, and David and Judy Ray.

By 1980, Goedicke and Robinson sought teaching appointments in the United States in order to have access to better health care in light of Robinson’s cardiovascular condition. During the 1980-1981 academic year, Goedicke taught Creative Writing at Sarah Lawrence College. While Goedicke pursued an extension of her contract at Sarah Lawrence, she ultimately accepted a temporary position for the 1981-1982 academic year at The University of Montana in Missoula, filling a position previously occupied by Naomi Lazard. In the fall 1982, Goedicke, along with Paul Zarazyski, helped fill in for the ailing Richard Hugo, teaching his graduate-level workshop that semester. By 1983, Goedicke began a tenure track position at The University of Montana that ended with her retirement in 2003.

As professors at The University of Montana, Robinson served as an adjunct in 1989, filling in for Bill Kittredge as leader of a graduate workshop that included David Allan Cates, while Goedicke’s career was highlighted by a Distinguished Scholar Award in 1991 and the 2003 H.G. Merriam Award for distinguished contributions to Montana literature. Goedicke’s students included Sandra Alcosser, Greg Glazner, Jon Davis, Derick Burleson, Debra Kang Dean, Melissa Kwasny, Sarah Gridley, and Chris Dombrowski.

One notable influence on Goedicke’s writing was the Rattlesnake Ladies’ Salon. This group, which convened for a number of years over the eighties and nineties included Goedicke, Deirdre McNamer, Kate Gadbow, Caroline Patterson, Connie Poten, Sandra Alcosser, Beth Ferris, and Marnie Prange. According to Lois Welch, in her history of The University of Montana Creative Writing program entitled All Our Stories are Here, “The Rattlesnake Ladies’ Writing Salon (deliberately so named) met regularly during the 1990s to give Missoula’s women writers a community of camaraderie and criticism away from students and faculty, from stalwart husbands—and from fishing stories.”

During their years in Missoula, Goedicke and Robinson published several works. Robinson published two books of poetry, In the Whale in 1983 and Now and Zen, which was published posthumously in 2005. Goedicke published eight books of poetry: King of Childhood (1984), The Wind of Our Going (1985), Listen Love (1986), The Tongues We Speak (1989), Paul Bunyan’s Bearskin (1992), Invisible Horses (1996), As Earth Begins to End (2001), and Baseball Field at Night (published posthumously in 2009). Goedicke’s selected volume of poems The Tongues We Speak was named a notable book by The New York Times Book Review in 1990 and As Earth Begins to End was named by Booklist as one of the top 10 books of the year.

Leonard Wallace Robinson, who had been suffering from dementia, passed away in his sleep on April 30, 1999. Patricia Goedicke passed away on July 14, 2006. In the days leading up to her death, Goedicke was working on her final book while undergoing cancer treatment.

Acquisition Information :  

The collection was acquired in 2007 from Deirdre McNamer and Connie Poten, the executors of Patricia Goedicke's estate. Additional materials were submitted independently by Kate Gadbow and Deirdre McNamer in 2008, including recordings of Goedicke's memorial service, a compact disk containing documents from Goedicke's hard drive, and materials from Goedicke's safe deposit box, which contained copies of Goedicke's and Robinson's will, personal effects, and a letter from Robert Frost.

Processing Note :  

This collection has been organized into series intended to reflect the literary and academic careers of Patricia Goedicke and Leonard Wallace Robinson. While certain parts of the collection largely reflect original order (such as Series IV: Teaching Files), much of the collection has been reorganized at individually arranged at the file level by the processing archivist. More specific statements regarding the arrangement of the collection may be found in the series level content notes.

Materials were appraised by the processing archivist according to their research value in relation to the study of literature at a national or regional level, to the study of The University of Montana, and to the lives of Patricia Goedicke and Leonard Wallace Robinson as writers and academics. Materials of little value in these regards, such as routine financial records and mass produced audio recordings, were generally not retained. More detailed appraisal notes may be found in the series level content notes.

Separated Materials :  

Patricia Goedicke's poetry library was donated to the Mansfield Library and placed in the Poetry Corner. Personal copies of works by Robinson and Goedicke are housed in Mansfield Library's Special Collections.

Bibliography :  

    The following are issues of literary journals containing tributes to Patricia Goedicke after her passing:

Detailed Description of the Collection

Series I:  Works by Patricia Goedicke, 1945-2006
26.1 linear feet

This series includes files of drafts, notes, correspondence, business records, and notebooks related to Goedicke’s works. Within this series are five subseries: Individual Works, Gathered Works, General Business Files, Readings Files, and Notebooks. In many ways, the subseries titled Individual Works may be seen as an extension of the subseries titled Notebooks and vice-versa. That is, the drafts first conceived in Goedicke’s notebooks eventually emerge in type, thus beginning a cycle of revisions appearing in the subseries of Individual Works.

While these works consist primarily of poems or books of poetry, the series also contains drafts of Goedicke’s autobiographical essay “Entering the Garden.” Drafts of other essays or articles by Goedicke may be found in Series V, Conference Files, as many of Goedicke’s critical writings emerged from conference papers.

While the files in most of the subseries reflect the way the originally files created by Goedicke, the files arranged under Individual Works reflect a significant degree of intervention by the archivist. Notably, Goedicke tended to group drafts of poems in large alphabetical files. The archivist separated these files into smaller units to more explicitly identify individual titles. Furthermore, the archivist pulled together drafts of poems contained in separate alphabetic files to avoid the need to search different files for drafts of the same poem.

Description
Subseries 1: Individual Works, 1958-2006
12.1 linear feet
This subseries includes drafts of individual poems and files of correspondence, notes, manuscripts, records, reviews, and publicity for book length works. Works are arranged in alphabetical order according to title. Because Goedicke dated most of her drafts, it is often possible to track the development of a poem back to hand-written drafts in her journal using the date of the first draft that appears in type print. In addition to dating her drafts, Goedicke occasionally indicates readers who have provided significant feedback regarding a work. For example, a draft dated “9/12/94 (after Salon)” indicates that the draft has been revised based on comments from the Rattlesnake Ladies Salon, of which Goedicke was a regular participant.Drafts of individual poems may also be found amongst files of works compiled in the subseries Gathered Works. In addition, a handful of drafts by Goedicke appear within the Correspondence series. For example, some of the poems appearing in Invisible Horses appear amongst correspondence to and from Cal Bedient. Files for book length works contain documents related to the compilation, publication, and promotion of books by Goedicke. This includes publisher correspondence, correspondence written in response to individual books, notes on arrangement and themes, and reviews.

Series II:  Works by Leonard Wallace Robinson, 1931-2006
16.1 linear feet

This series consists primarily of files of drafts and notes for works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. Also included are notebooks containing general notes for writing, business files documenting the publication of works by Robinson, and files used for readings.

Also included in this series are indices of poems created by Goedicke and poems selected and retyped by Goedicke. Many of the retyped poems reference folders with an “SG” number. SG stands for Sarah Gridley, who helped Goedicke sort through Robinson’s works after his passing. A letter by Goedicke to Robinson’s sister, Helen, explains this process. A copy of this letter has been placed by the archivist at the beginning of the file titled “Poems typed by Patricia Goedicke.” The SG numbers for individual folders are listed as notes beneath the corresponding folder title.

This subseries consists primarily of drafts of individual poems as grouped by Robinson. Notable exceptions are files of retyped poems and indices created by Goedicke in 1999 and 2000. Goedicke’s indices point to poems located in other files within Robinson’s Gathered Works, as well as materials in Robinson’s notebooks (see Subseries 6, “Notebooks”). This series has been arranged according to titles assigned by the archivist which generally reflect the type of work contained within the file (e.g., poems, articles, limericks).

Series III:  Correspondence, 1926-2006
16.2 linear feet

This series consists of correspondence that Goedicke and Robinson maintained independently of files dedicated toward specific professional duties documented in other series, such as Teaching Files and the series dedicated to works by Goedicke and Robinson. Much of the original correspondence files have been rearranged by the archivist into files of correspondence to and from specific individuals. The individual correspondence is arranged in alphabetical order. Originally the files were primarily labeled according to the date the correspondence was gathered. The remaining correspondence has been arranged in rough chronological order loosely based on the files originally created by Robinson and Goedicke.

Individuals represented in this series were selected based on the amount of correspondence contained within the series and the importance of the correspondent in a literary context (whether regionally or nationally). While files for Jean-Marie Cook (Goedicke’s sister), Pat Grean (Goedicke’s friend), and Larry and Joan Pinkham (Robinson’s former colleague from Columbia) are notable for their documentation of Goedicke’s and Robinson’s life over a long period of time, other files reflect intense collaboration over a more limited time frame. Such files include those for Cal Bedient, which documents the development of Invisible Horses and Bedient’s Candy Necklace, Sarah Gridley, which documents the development of Baseball Field at Night and Gridley’s Weather Eye Open, and Melissa Kwasny, which documents the development of Baseball Field at Night and Thistle.

Amongst the notable correspondence in the general correspondence subseries is the file titled “MacDowell Colony correspondence (1968-1970).” This file contains correspondence documenting Goedicke’s and Robinson’s first encounter.

Some correspondence has been separated from the alphabetical and general correspondence files in order to protect the privacy of living individuals. Any file containing restricted correspondence will contain a note beneath the file title in the container list.

Series V:  Conference Files, 1983-2005
0.9 linear feet

This series includes materials from conferences and workshops attended by Patricia Goedicke including notes and papers presented by Goedicke. Notable amongst these files are the extensive notes and drafts Goedicke retained for her attendance at the 1989 Modern Language Association annual meeting, where she presented in a session titled “Schools of the Self in Contemporary American Poetry.”

At least one of Goedicke’s conference papers, “Keeping the Faith,” was revised into an article by the same title for The Hiram Poetry Review, issue 48-49 (1990-1991).

Some of Goedicke’s presentations are also recorded to audio or video tape. These include her lectures at the Midnight Sun Writers’ Conference (1983), Muriel Rukeyser Workshop (1991), and the Yellow Bay Writers’ Workshop (1993). The Midnight Sun and Yellow Bay lectures and readings were recorded on audio tape, while Goedicke’s reading for the Muriel Rukeyser Workshop was recorded on a video tape labeled “Salmon, ID reading,” which was where the workshop took place.

Series VIII:  Works by Others, circa 1960-2006
1.4 linear feet

This series contains files consisting largely of drafts created by someone other than Robinson or Goedicke. While all of the files in this series were maintained by Goedicke or Robinson, a number have been removed by the archivist from boxes that mainly contained correspondence. These files are arranged by the individual authoring the particular work or set of works.

Unmarked materials identified as student assignments were removed from the collection. The lone remaining student work is the title work of Neil McMahon’s thesis, Heart, which includes comments by Robinson.

Two files closely associated with work by Goedicke are a score by Paul Earls for “I Wanted You to Make Love to Me and You Did Baby, You Did” and an interview of Goedicke by Debra Kang Dean and Connie Poten.

Series X:  Published Materials, 1934-1988
1.1 linear feet

A number of chapbooks that were originally a part of the collection were separated and placed in the Mansfield Library’s Poetry Corner, as were books from Goedicke’s personal library. Chapbooks deemed too fragile for the Poetry Corner were retained in this collection of Goedicke’s papers. A list of separated chapbooks may be found in the file titled “Chapbooks.” A number of published materials that were not deemed appropriate for the Poetry Corner were retained due to annotation by Goedicke or Robinson or their significance to other materials in the collection. Annotated books include works about Alzheimer’s disease and materials used for background research for Robinson’s autobiographical novel. Unannotated works from Robinson’s research files were removed from the collection. Other materials offer either unique biographical information about Goedicke and Robinson or support correspondence files, in particular, the Robert Lax correspondence and Bella Cooney correspondence.

Series XII:  Photographic Materials, circa 1910-2005
4.7 linear feet

This series has been arranged into four subseries: Photographs and Proofs, Negatives and Slides, and Albums. The photo albums document a fairly extensive chronological narrative of Goedicke’s and Robinson’s life from 1982-2001. There is also a large framed work of art used in Robinson's memorial service. A relatively small number of digital images were saved to Goedicke’s hard drive and copied to DVD with other files from the hard drive. Since the DVD consists primarily of email and word processing documents, the archivist has filed the DVD in Series XIV, Computer Files. The DVD is also described in the notes for Series XIV.

Series XV:  Computer Files, 1988-2006
0.4 linear feet  ( 35 5.25 inch disks, 16 3.5 inch disks, 3 zip disks, 2 compact disks, and 1 flash drive)

This series consists primarily of computer disks that contain documents in Word Perfect, Word Star, and Word, as well as files downloaded from Outlook and “Undo” files created by a data recovery program authored by Norton. These disks were most likely gathered by Goedicke and include 5.25 inch disks, 3.5 inch disks, and zip disks. Based on labels and accompanying notes, the disks likely include drafts of poems, correspondence, and materials for Goedicke’s faculty evaluations. Also included in this series are a flash drive and DVD containing the contents of Goedicke’s hard drive, both submitted by Deirdre McNamer after the initial acquisition of the papers by Archives and Special Collections. These materials contain drafts of Goedicke’s works, downloaded email files, and photographs. All the documents contained within this series have been transferred to a server maintained by the Mansfield Library. All the documents, except those from Goedicke’s hard drive, have also been copied onto a compact disk. Corrupt files that could not be transferred are listed within text files titled “Archivist Note,” which are located within the directory containing the files from the corresponding disk.

Most of the drafts of individual poems contained in this series have likely been printed out and may be found in Series I, Subseries 1 (Works by Patricia Goedicke, Individual Works). Goedicke’s faculty files may include materials not included in Series IV (Teaching Files), as applications for normal raises were discarded. While Goedicke did print much of the correspondence received or written in a digital format, there is no evidence that she printed out all of her correspondence. Due to potential privacy issues surrounding correspondence and teaching records, many of the documents contained within this series will be accessible only with the consent of the archivist.

With the exception of the CD and DVD copies of materials created by Goedicke and Robinson, the titles of disks assigned below reflect the titles written on the disk or the disk cover. In the notes that accompany the disk titles are the file types contained on the disk and the type of disk in terms of its physical size.

Disks that do not contain documents authored by Goedicke or Robinson, such as support software for a zip drive, were removed from the collection. Also removed was a disk containing only Faculty evaluations of Goedicke's peers within the English Department at The University of Montana.
