White Fields Press was established in 1992 by Louisville poets and activists Ron Whitehead and Kent Fielding who also founded the movement Rant for the Literary Renaissance. Publishing chapbooks, the Published in Heaven Series of poetry broadsides, books, and audio recordings, White Fields Press has produced a remarkable body of work including poets such as Allen Ginsberg (1926- ), Diane di Prima (1934- ), Seamus Heaney (1939- ), Ron Seitz, Wendell Berry (1934- ), Lee Ranaldo, Hunter S. Thompson (1939- ), Amiri Baraka (1934- ), Jim Carroll, and Eithne Strong. The archive, developed in large part through gifts from Ron Whitehead and Kent Fielding, gathers the business files, extensive correspondence with poets, photographs, and other materials associated with the publications and events sponsored by White Fields Press and the Literary Renaissance. The archive also includes a comprehensive collection of White Fields Press publications, posters, broadsides, chapbooks, books, and audio recordings, many signed by the artists. An associated collection includes the personal library and papers of Ron Whitehead.
