Beatdom at Stony Brook

Thanks to contributor Michael Hendrick, Beatdom’s name is now permanently etched in the annals at Stony Brook’s Allen Ginsberg collection.

Mr Hendrick shared a personal treasure firstly with Beatdom, and now with Stony Brook, when he published a postcard that Ginsberg sent him. This appeared – accompanied by a fascinating backstory – in Beatdom #7.

Now the postcard resides at Stony Brook University, along with other items relating to the life and work of one of the 20th century’s finest poets.
