Scope and Contents Note

This collection documents the professional career of Dr. Leslie D. Foster, professor of English at Northern Michigan University. The collection includes course materials, correspondence, numerous poems and literary essays written by Foster, a newsletter for recovering alcoholics edited by Foster, and his journals.

The collection is unprocessed, but has been grouped into three subseries: General, Writings and Presentations, and Course Materials. The General subseries contain correspondence, NMU promotion requests, materials relating to his membership in the American Mensa Society, and miscellaneous materials. Writings and Presentations are considerable and include drafts of poems; his "Sunday Journals;" literary essays; presentation papers; copies of Alkafriends, a newsletter for recovering alcoholics within Mensa which was edited by Foster; and his anthology of his African students' papers. Course materials are extensive and contain syllabi, tests, handouts, assignments, notes, and summary of student course evaluation comments relating to most courses taught by Foster.

A second accession of records to the collection is a combination of official records and personal papers. The personal papers are largely comprised of manuscripts of poems and other literary works of the author. Of particular note is the author's personal journal, spanning the years 1985-1997. The official records are largely comprised of course syllabi, student evaluations, and papers, memorandum, faculty evaluations, and notes. The collection also includes publicity material, cassette recordings, and video records of the performance "Appointment or Drop-in at Jericho Gate."
