The Frank Davey fonds, donated to the SoundBox Collection in 2014, is made up of 18 cassette and reel-to-reel recordings. The dates of these recordings range from the early 1960s to the late 1980s, with a focus on poetry readings and poetics lectures. Davey was an editor and co-founder of the Canadian poetry newsletter TISH, and many of the recordings reflect this by featuring TISH co-editors and collaborators. Of special interest is a 1970 interview with the donor, Frank Davey, about his then-recently-published book, Weeds.
