She worked as assistant editor of the Southern Economic Journal, 1975-1976, and as assistant editor of the Chapel Hill, N.C., based The Sun, A Magazine of Ideas, 1977-1981. Campbell worked at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, N.Y., in 1982; she began publishing her own essays and poems in The Rose Reader in 1984; and she started an astrological consulting service called Wild Rose Consulting in 1985. Beginning in 1989, Campbell typically spent summers in Tivoli, N.Y., and winters in Chapel Hill, N.C. Intuitive Astrology: Follow Your Best Instincts to Become Who You Always Intended to Be was published in 2003. Campbell died of cancer in 2004. The collection is primarily diaries documenting Campbell's personal and professional life.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Elizabeth Rose Campbell (Betsy) was born on 7 March 1952 in Rocky Mount, N.C. She graduated from Weldon High School in 1970 and from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1975 with a B.A. in journalism and studio art. That same year, she married Stephen Blackwell, at which point she began publishing under the name Betsy Campbell Blackwell. She worked as assistant editor for The Southern Economic Journal, 1975-1976, and as assistant editor of The Sun, A Magazine of Ideas, 1977-1981. In 1978, she and Blackwell separated, and she resumed the name Elizabeth Rose Campbell. She built and moved into a small, sparsely equipped house on the land co-owned by her and her husband.

During the 1970s, Campbell's interests in astrology, writing, and new age and alternative arts grew. She also became more involved in writing and publishing her personal, first-person essays in The Sun and other publications. In 1981, she left her position at The Sun and began working as a waitress at Pyewacket, a Chapel Hill, N.C., restaurant. She also sold socks on the side. In 1982, Campbell worked at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, N.Y., as faculty coordinator, director of marketing, and program coordinator. While working at Omega, Campbell lived in Tivoli, N.Y. In 1984, she began publishing essays and poems in The Rose Reader. In 1985, she began to supplement her income by modeling for art classes. She also started her own astrology consulting service, called Wild Rose Consulting, and did freelance writing under the business name Communications Clarified. In 1987, she did a writer's residency at Edna St. Vincent Millay Colony for the Arts, in Austerlitz, N.Y., and her story "On Dreams" was published in the anthology, Dreams Are Wiser Than Men (North Atlantic Books). After completing her residency, she moved back to Tivoli.

Starting in 1989, Campbell typically spent summers in Tivoli and winters in Chapel Hill. By 1994, Wild Rose Consulting had about 1500 clients and served as Campbell's primary work until her death. She remained involved at the Omega Institute, however, working off and on as an in-house astrologer. In 1996, she began working on "Horsegirl," which was published in the anthology Jo's Girls: Tomboy Tales of High Adventure, True Grit, and Real Life (Beacon Press, 1997). Also in 1996, she did a writer's residency at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts of Sweet Briar, Va., and released Pulses, a video about the creative process that won a PBS award. In 1998, she did another residency at the Ragdale Foundation in Lake Forest, Ill., and in 2003, Random House published her first and only book, Intuitive Astrology: Follow Your Best Instincts to Become Who You Always Intended to Be . Campbell died of cancer on 15 December 2004.

Arrangement: chronological.

Diaries documenting the personal and professional life of Elizabeth Rose Campbell. Filed within the diaries are letters, drafts of writings, photographs, transcripts of psychic and astrological readings, financial records, clippings, printed materials, and other items.

The diaries begin when Campbell was eight, and until Campbell's college years, chiefly describe friendships, family, school, boys, and other aspects her daily life. Note that all diaries prior to 1971 contain annotations made by Campbell in 1971. During college and thereafter, entries become increasingly spiritual and introspective, documenting personal, romantic, and sexual relationships in great detail. They also include many drafts of her writings.

Some diaries from the 1970s and 1980s include a table of contents, noting major events and entries in the diary and when they occurred. In the early 1980s, Campbell began to keep copious records, which she called "Lifelogs" or "Timelogs," that describe her daily activities, money earned and spent, work produced, social events, and the state of her health. These logs typically appear yearly and tri-yearly. Beginning in the early 1990s, the diaries include monthly astrological charts with handwritten annotations by Campbell regarding events that occur in relation to the dates and times of the chart.
