From the Jargon Society website: "The Jargon Society was founded by Jonathan Williams and David Ruff in 1951 in a San Francisco Chinese restaurant. Jargon 1 was a folded pamphlet with a poem by Williams (Garbage Litters the Iron Face of the Sun's Child) and an etching by Ruff. Just 150 copies were produced. Jargon 2 was called The Dancer and consisted of a poem by Joel Oppenheimer and a drawing by Robert Rauschenberg. It was published at Black Mountain College soon after Williams' arrival there in the summer of 1951. Other Jargon publications included The Maximus Poems by Charles Olson, The Neugents by David M. Spear and many others."
