Biscuit City Press Archives, 1970-1992

Scope & content

The records of the Biscuit City Press are divided into three series.

Series I, Works of the Press consists of four, three-ring binders (1970-1983) that contain samples of all the items printed by the Press. Items included vary from business cards, reprints of historic tracks, booklets, books and samples of marbled paper made by the Gutchens.

Series II, Printed Works consists of four three-ring binders (1971-1983) that contain duplicates of items printed on the press. There are also copies of drafts, working copies of press work and proofs. One notebook contains printing ephemera and prospectus from domestic and foreign presses.

Series III, the General File consists of records created or used by Professor Gutchen in the operation of the Press. There is a two volume diary (1975-1980) of press activates and a sales journal for items printed on the press. Professor Gutchen’s involvement with the University of Rhode Island Theatre is amply documented in a three-ring binder (1974-1990) containing flyers, programs and news clippings about theatrical productions.
