Scott Walker co-founded Graywolf Press in 1974 with Kathleen Foster. The press was first located in Port Townsend, Washington until moving to Saint Paul, Minnesota in 1984. Graywolf's first publications were rare and limited-edition chapbooks of poetry, many of which were printed and hand sewn by Walker himself. These earliest printings include the work of nationally renowned poets such as Tess Gallagher, Stanley Kunitz, and Philip Levine.
The collection was donated to the Literary Manuscripts Collection by Scott Walker in August 2012.
