Originally, in the Graphic Arts Collection, there was a gathering of numerous American poetry broadsides issued since 1955. See Joe Rothrock's article on contemporary collecting in Graphic Arts in the Princeton University Library Chronicle XXXVIII, 1 (Autumn, 1976) pp. 60 ff. [full text] In May of 1991, many of these were transferred to the General Rare Books Collection. Many were cataloged for the (ExRML BROADSIDE) collection.

The collection of broadside poems continues to grow through purchases funded by the gift of Leonard L. Milberg '53 in honor of Richard M. Ludwig, and the gift of Leonard L. Milberg '53 for the Milberg Irish Poetry Collection.
