Folder
Consists of newspaper and magazine clippings, photocopies of articles, printed materials, ephemera, and scrapbooks that McCarthy kept as source material for his work, as well as to track the reception of his activities and those of other Irish poets in the press. While similar materials that McCarthy interfiled with his poetry drafts can be found in the Writings file group, materials described here consist of those that were not already filed or readily associated with a specific writing project. Many of the clippings McCarthy kept pertain to Irish history, government, culture, and literature. There are some magazines in which McCarthy's writings appeared, translations of his works, and writings by others about McCarthy and other topics, including some materials he may have used for teaching purposes. Of note are a small number of photographs depicting McCarthy, including with family and friends, largely from the 1980s through the 2000s.
