Rhode Island Partnership for Research on Women and Gender
The Rhode Island Partnership for Research on Women and Gender was born out of the creative energy of a group of faculty, graduate students, alumni, and community members dedicated to the issues of gender. The Partnership was established in 1994-1995 as a campus-community collaborative of individuals from the public and private sectors, organizations, and institutions of higher education who were engaged in feminist research, scholarship, creative activities, instruction and service.

The collection consists of interviews with female clerical workers of the state of Rhode Island. The interviews were conducted as part of the University of Rhode Island Oral History Project and cover careers from the 1930s through the 1970s.
The collection consists of interviews with residents of three of Rhode Island's islands: Block Island, Conanicut Island, and Prudence Island. The interviews attempt to define the islands culturally and socially, rather than geographically, through oral history.

This collection contains published reviews of Wilmarth's poetry, a limited number of publications that contain his poetry, appointment books, news clippings, and obituaries; preliminary versions of published and unpublished materials; handwritten drafts and revisions of his poetry, notebooks contain examples of self-reflection and personal commentary, observations on people, places, and experiences, and outlines for his writings; and his correspondence.
