Interview with Dave Haselwood, 24 Mar 2007 [cached]

[Dave Haselwood was at Zen Center in 63 and 64. I just saw him at Sonoma Mt. Zen Center where I gave the Saturday talk (7/31/99). He's a priest there now and going strong. This interview was done on October 1, 1995.--DC]

Dave first came out to California with Michael McClure.

Dave Haselwood was born in Wichita, Kansas, in 1931. He attended elementary schools in Wichita and in Latham, Kansas. In Latham he first revealed a religious bent, teaching Sunday school classes and delivering sermons while in his early teens. He attended Wichita High School East in the late 1940s and was a part of a group that included painter and filmmaker Bruce Conner and poet Michael McClure, artists who became his friends for life. He studied at the University of Wichita, majoring in English, and was editor of the Sunflower Literary Review. In 1953, he received a Bachelor of Arts degree and began graduate studies. In 1954, after a summer in Mexico, he joined the United States Army. For most of his enlistment he was stationed in Germany and traveled extensively throughout Europe.
In 1957, Dave Haselwood came to San Francisco to study at San Francisco State, but in 1958, he dropped out to found the Auerhahn Press (named for a rare European grouse) to publish the poets and artists of what became known as the Beat Generation. The first title he published was "The Hotel Wentley Poems" by John Weiners.
Auerhahn Press publications were noted for their physical beauty and the care that went into their production. Dave Haselwood had taken a printing course in high school and learned the rudiments of letterpress, which he appreciated for its aesthetic effect and the affordability of outmoded equipment. He handset most of his books and printed them on a platen press.
"The first and final consideration in printing is the poetry itself," Haselwood wrote in 1960. ''If the poems are great they create their own space. The publisher is just a midwife during the final operation. Contrary to what to what many people think, including publishers, publishing is not a gentleman's profession, it is the occupation of a crook or a madman."
The press grew more influential in the avant-garde but never quite became solvent. In 1964, Haselwood and Hoyem ended the Auerhahn Press.
Haselwood went on to bring out titles by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Allen Ginsberg, Charles Plymell, and Joanne Kyger under the imprint of Dave Haselwood Books.
Dave Haselwood met Hilda Polak, a lawyer, in 1967; they were married in 1969.
In 1973, Dave Haselwood changed professions and became a landscape architect. He took an active part in his community.
In 2007, Dave Haselwood was diagnosed with indolent lymphoma. He bore the burden of ill health with aplomb, wit, good humor, and great clarity of mind, and stayed involved with lives of his friends and his Zen students. He loved California's coasts, rivers, mountains, and deserts, and was an inveterate birdwatcher. His favorite camping spots were the Yolla Bolly Wilderness, Letts Lake, and Death Valley.
Dave Haselwood was a remarkable, multifaceted man. He played a seminal role in the San Francisco avant-garde movement in literature that suddenly exploded and changed the world. He is mourned by his family, his Zen students, his teacher, and his many friends.

The nine pieces that comprise "Prolegomena to a study of the Universe" were sent to Dave Haselwood of Auerhahn Press. Haselwood and artist Robert LaVigne hitch-hiked up to Portland, where Whalen was working as a court bailiff to meet him and secure the manuscript which became his first published book of poetry Memoirs of an Interglacial Age.

Dave Haselwood had published Ekstasis, and later Destroyed Works, a cherished copy of which I still have in my library, and whose poem, Morning Light Song ("the heavens proclaim you, Absolute God") has proven a durable and influential impetus of my own poetry.
Old fashioned in the best sense, high art was being practiced and Dave was its High Priest, its sweet promulgator of fineness even then. I remember also noting his casual remarks, never that casual, that often were spot - on target critiques or facet analysis of a line of a poem, or an often slightly arch comment on a particular poet which was never mean but often slicing close to the bone. And the books being produced! Only the Patchen painted originals, of which there was a bin still at City Lights in about 1958 or 9 when I visited the store in my last year of Oakland High School, had that original and somehow raw quality of true beauty. The Auerhahn books so lovingly designed, not in a standard format but matching each book of poems in its particulars, were portals into the poems inside and then out through the poetry into the world.
That Dave Haselwood is now Joko, and dispensing Zen wisdom wedded with wisdom poetry of all kinds, is no surprise.
