Midwest Distributors records
Midwest Distributors was founded in 1978 in Kansas City, Missouri with assistance from the Coordinating Council of Literary Magazines, and was later supported by the National Endowment for the Arts. The organization promoted and distributed small press literature and alternative cultural materials to libraries, bookstores, and individuals primarily in Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, as well as southern Illinois, Iowa, and Indiana. This collection of their records consists primarily of literary materials intended for distribution, as well as administrative and financial records.
