Administrative history

Bowden Clipping Service, part of MH Media Monitoring Limited based in Kitchener, Ontario, is a Canadian company that was used by Concordia University Libraries to find articles in French and English Canadian newspapers and magazines relating to the poet Irving Layton. The company would send the clippings via first class mail on a weekly basis. The Libraries ceased using the company’s services in May of 1993.

Custodial history

Clippings were collected by a Bowden’s clipping service employed by Concordia University Libraries.

Scope and content

These clippings review his work, comment on events held to honour Layton and his work, include interviews with the poet, document reviews by fans, and include articles about Irving Layton and Canadian poets in general.
