Identifier: Mss081J

Scope and Content Note

The Crow newsletter was a monthly print publication started by Michael Hidge in 1990. The publication served as a "group letter" shared among people who have attended the Conference of The Gret Mother and New Father, created by Robert Bly. According to the newsletter's editor, Lola Wilcox, "the CROW came into existence because of, and its authors are peopel of, the Great Mother/New Father Conference fathered by Robert Bly." In this sense, the CROW documents a history of a "community forming proces," formed around Robert Bly and topics of interest to him. This collection contains a near complete run of newsletters issued from 1993-2012.
