The collection consists of the records of Doones Press from 1969-1976. The records include correspondence, drafts of published and unpublished writings, and administrative material. The correspondence consists of letters from other poets who published their work in Doones Press publications, including Darrell Gray, Geof Hewitt, Anselm Hollo, Steve Shrader, and Ron Silliman. The drafts of published writings include typescripts of the complete run of DiPalma's literary magazine, Doones, in addition to other volumes of poetry. The collection also includes typescripts of works that were submitted to DiPalma but not published by the press. A small amount of administrative correspondence and financial records are also included in the collection.
