Folkways liner notes

In 1967, Mark Van Doren made an LP record of his poems - at Folkways. We at PennSound, for a year or so, have had this recording available on our Mark Van Doren page. Just yesterday we added a link to a PDF of the whole 6-page liner notes, a sheaf of stapled 8.5x11 mimeographed pages that were tucked into the LP sleeve--a fairly rare document. None of this would have come about without the kind involvement and permission of Mark's son, Charles Van Doren.
