Scope and Contents
The Ann Lauterbach Papers document the personal and professional life of American poet Ann Lauterbach and consist of correspondence, writings, printed material, and audiovisual material.

Lauterbach's creative life is reflected in her writings and correspondence. The papers contain a number of drafts of Lauterbach's writings from early in her career until roughly 2000. Her correspondence reflects her intellectual circle with correspondents including a number of writers and artists: Stacy Doris, Kenward Gray Elmslie, Richard Hamilton, Susan Howe, Garrett Kalleberg, Ron Padgett, Peter Straub, Marjorie Welish, and Chet Wiener. The papers also contain other authors' manuscripts submitted to Lauterbach for review.

In addition, the papers relate to Lauterbach's personal life. Included in the papers are journals and yearly planners dating from the 1960s to the 1990s. Lauterbach's correspondence with family members, namely her mother (Elizabeth Lauterbach) and sister (Jennifer Lauterbach), similarly provide insight into her life. The papers also include a journal belonging to her father Richard Lauterbach.
