Biographical/Historical Note

Mary Caroline ("M.C.") Richards, self-described "teacher, writer, lecturer, potter, poet," was born in 1916, and received her Ph.D. in English from the University of California at Berkeley in 1942. She taught English both at Berkeley and at the University of Chicago before joining the faculty of Black Mountain College in Asheville, North Carolina, a school that had a formative role in postwar American art in 1945. She and her husband Bill Levi became prominent members of the Black Mountain community; she in writing and literature, he in philosophy and as rector from 1947 to 1948. In 1948 Richards and her students started the Black Mountain Press which they used for literary publications and to print Richards's first volume of poetry. That same year she met the composer John Cage, who had just joined the summer faculty and who that summer produced Erik Satie's play Le Piége de Méduse, performed by Buckminster Fuller and Merce Cunningham, directed by Arthur Penn, and translated by M.C. Richards. Richards served as chair of the faculty from 1949 to 1951, participating actively in the many conflicts between various factions in administration and faculty. She was instrumental in bringing the poet Charles Olson to the faculty in 1951. He served as rector from 1953 until the college closed in 1956.

After the summer session of 1951, Richards resigned and left for New York City with pianist and Cage associate David Tudor. She returned to Black Mountain the subsequent summer to participate in an event that came to be known as the first "happening," organized by John Cage and also involving Robert Rauschenberg, Charles Olson, David Tudor, and Merce Cunningham. During her time in New York City she translated, at Tudor's suggestion, Antonin Artaud's Le Théatre et son double, which was published by Grove Press in 1958 to wide acclaim. In 1954 Richards, Tudor, and Cage, among other former Black Mountain faculty, became a part of the Stony Point community in Rockland County, New York, founded by the architect Paul Williams. In 1964, the same year she left Stony Point, her book Centering: In Pottery, Poetry and the Person was published by Wesleyan University Press, followed in 1973 by The Crossing Point: Nine Easter Letters on the Art of Education and in 1980 by Toward Wholeness: Rudolf Steiner Education in America. These books reveal a very personal view of the development of the individual through art and life and, combined with her extensive teaching and lecturing throughout the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, were widely influential in the arts education and craft communities. Mary Caroline Richards died in 1999 in New York City.


Scope and Content of Collection

The papers of Mary Caroline Richards gather together a lifetime of work in several artistic disciplines and touch upon many others. Richards's career saw a progression from scholarship and teaching in English literature, to freelance work as a poet, potter, author, and translator, to work in arts education through lectures and workshops. During this time she established close relationships with a large number of people, as may be seen through her correspondence, which is remarkable for its intimacy and warmth. Her correspondents include representatives from virtually every artistic discipline and many of the major American art movements of the 1950s through the 1980s.

The papers give special emphasis to the period during which Richards served on the faculty of Black Mountain College in the 1940s and 1950s. Here began many of the associations which connect her to the music and art worlds, through friendships with David Tudor, Lou Harrison and John Cage in music, Merce Cunningham and Remy Charlip in dance, Charles Olson, Robert Creeley, and Robert Duncan (loosely known as the "Black Mountain Poets") in literature, and Lyle Bongé and Joe Fiore in the visual arts. Her involvement with theater began at Black Mountain College with her translation of plays by Cocteau and Satie, and continued after her departure when she became the first English translator of Artaud, acting on an interest which began at Black Mountain.

Included in the collection are manuscripts, correspondence, diaries and notebooks, books, photographs, slides, clippings, ephemera, posters, audio tapes, and artwork (including oil paintings and drawings in pencil, ink, chalk and pastels).

Items counts are approximate.
