Creator: Doig, Ivan

Provenance Note: Diaries, literary manuscripts, research papers, legal documents, photographs and memorabilia created or collected by Ivan Doig were donated to Montana State University by Carol Doig of Seattle, Washington on October 1, 2015.

Historical Note: Ivan Doig (June 27, 1939 – April 9, 2015), a third generation Montanan, was born in White Sulphur Springs, Montana. He grew up along the Rocky Mountain Front where much of his writing takes place.  His highly acclaimed memoir This House of Sky (1978), was a finalist for the National Book Award. A former ranch hand, newspaperman, and magazine editor, Doig graduated from Northwestern University where he received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism.  He earned a Ph.D. in history from the University of Washington in 1969, and during his career was the recipient of three honorary doctorates. In the century’s-end San Francisco Chronicle polls to name the best Western novels and works of non-fiction, Doig was the only living writer with books in the top dozen on both lists: English Creek in fiction and This House of Sky in non-fiction. He lived in Seattle with his wife Carol, who taught the literature of the American West.

Content Description Note: The Doig Archive consists of manuscripts, proofs and galleys, typed and handwritten writing fragments, pocket notebooks, note cards, diaries, journals, photographs, audio/visual material, and memorabilia. The material has been sorted into twelve series based on subject and/or document type, and there is some overlap between these divisions. The first series consists of Doig’s diaries and biographical information. The second series is the largest and consists of the various manuscript drafts and revisions, along with associated research and some publisher and promotion correspondence, all relating to sixteen books by Doig published between 1978 and 2015. The series of correspondence includes letters to and from other writers, publishers, and friends. Series four consists of essays, letters, and other materials by Doig on the process of writing and are not necessarily related to any given book title. His practice of taking notes on small pocket spiral notebooks, and also typing research findings or other writing ideas on note cards, are represented in two separate series. The note cards in particular relate back to the composition of Doig’s books and some boxes bear the titles of those works. Other series include photographs, slides, audio and video recordings used for research purposes as well as readings and interviews with Ivan about his work. A series of material titled “Medical Journey” documents Doig’s struggle with his final illness and includes both his own thoughts on the process as well as actual medical records. Finally, there is a small selection of Doig’s favorite research books that were taken from his office library.  The arrangement and description of the collection closely follows a preliminary inventory created for the papers by Ms. Betty Mayfield, a close friend of the Doigs and the person who prepared the material for donation in 2015.

 Series 1: Ivan Doig Archive - Diaries and biographical information, 1971-2015

Daily record of Doig’s activities, including minute details on writing work, meals, people encountered, and travel itineraries. The diaries were typed on 5” x 7” pages with the intention of storing them in small ring-clamp notebooks, and for many years supplemental material such as speeches, letters, newspaper clippings and other ephemera were punched with the same notebook holes and kept with the diary pages. This arrangement has been preserved. When used for content in individual books, Ivan removed some diary pages and placed them in book file folders of Series 2, Books and Other Writings. Photographs originally located in this series have been removed for placement in Series 8 and, like all subsequent folder listings, have had the removal indicated by an asterisk (*). All folder titles are from the original 2015 inventory of the collection otherwise identified by brackets [ ].  Online access to the contents of boxes 1-5 containing diary pages is restricted until further notice.  All folder numbers appearing as blue underlined hyperlinks will open a separate window and display a PDF file of the entire folder contents.

Series 2: Ivan Doig Archive - Manuscripts

Carol Doig indicates that while Ivan was creating a story he used different colored paper to identify his progress. Random white pages were pulled from the working manuscript when changes were to be made and these would be replaced by edited pages. Yellow pages represent seminal thoughts and jottings, some of which would work their way into a finished manuscript. Finally, Ivan would use blue pages to indicate scenes he’d written later than the original manuscript. However, this pattern of work is not consistently represented in the various subseries of this collection. Doig also wrote a synopsis or book proposal at the beginning of each project. Some of these documents are filed with the individual book materials and others are found in the Publisher correspondence files. The following inventory represents, with very few exceptions, the original arrangement and folder titles provided by librarian Betty Mayfield who prepared the collection for donation. Some of these folder divisions originally contained hundreds of sheets which were divided into more convenient numbers during archival processing. In those cases, the original folder title is repeated in subsequent folder divisions and indicated by (cont.) If page numbers are present in any manuscript listings, those numbers are given after the (cont.) marker.  An asterisk (*) following any folder listing indicates that photographic images or 35mm transparencies originally placed in that folder have been removed for listing in Series 8.  All folder numbers appearing as blue underlined hyperlinks will open a separate window and display a PDF file of the entire folder contents.

A NOTE ON DIGITAL SURROGATES: In some of the manuscripts presented in Series 2, the verso of any given page may have been scanned if it had typescript on it.  In those cases where Doig used old scraps of typed paper for cutting and pasting, this results in images that appear to have sections that are upside down and do not necessarily have prose that sensibly follows that which appears on the preceding page.  In these cases, distance users are advised to simply scroll down the PDF in order to skip to the next leaf for a continuation of the manuscript.

Series 3 – Ivan Doig Archive - Note Cards

 

A large collection of individual 5” x 8” notecards. These notecards contain words, phrases, sentences, character traits, plot, landscapes and ideas that are incorporated into Doig’s writing. Many of the terms and concepts were likely taken from the pocket notebooks in Series 5 as well as the notes found written on the yellow legal pads found throughout Series 2.  The numbered tabs in each box refer to the cards preceding the tabs. Occasionally Doig would remove cards and place them within a working manuscript for referral, or sort them in a different manner depending on the composition he was working on. As a result, some of the tabs mark sections that are completely empty, yet they have been retained to assist in demonstrating his original intent. These tabs are so marked.
