Boxes 5-8

Archipenko wrote and lectured extensively about his philosophy of art, art in nature, and theories concerning creativity and the universe. He published several articles, but only one of the manuscripts intended as a book was actually published, Archipenko: Fifty Creative Years, 1908-1958 (Tekhne Publications, Inc., 1960). Manuscripts, drafts, notes and supporting materials for Fifty Creative Years survive, along with similar documentation of unpublished writings. Also included are notes, outlines, and some transcripts and audio/visual recordings of lectures and talks. Recordings are on 1 sound cassette, 2 sound tape reels (1/4 in.), and 1 film reel. General notes are extensive and cover a variety of subjects; included with these are names, addresses, and phone numbers for friends, acquaintances, and professional associates in books, a card file, and loose scraps of paper. Writings by other authors consist of short manuscripts about Archipenko.
The series is arranged as 2 subseries.

Box 9

With the exception of one photograph taken in Berlin, 1921, records documenting Archipenko's schools and teaching career are confined to his years in the United States. They focus mainly on his New York City school and the Woodstock summer school, with only a few items representing Chicago.
The scrapbook contains advertisements and circulars for the Archipenko School of Art, including summer and evening schools, 1932-1946. There are also clippings and other printed matter, including exhibition announcements and catalogs about the Archipenko Art School (1928-1946), Arko Studio (1929), and former students (1931-1941), and a typescript of "How I Teach," a statement by Archipenko. Photographs of students are a group portrait of a class at his school in Berlin, 1921, students in a ceramic workshop, sculpture studios, bronze casting plaster casting, and summer classes, 1923 and 1930. Other photographs are of a pottery kiln, 1930, and Woodstock studio and school buildings, 1930s-1946, including construction views.
Files regarding Archipenko's teaching activities at schools other than his own include course descriptions, student rosters, grades, and printed matter. There are also 3 film reels with footage of Archipenko with students.
A small amount of material relating to the Archipenko School and his teaching activities elsewhere is scattered throughout his papers. Series 2: Correspondence includes requests from prospective students for school circulars and other information, correspondence with the various institutions where he was a guest instructor, and correspondence about school advertising. A variety of school related printed matter, as well as clippings about Archipenko's students and their work, and photographs of student exhibitions and student work are included in Series 7: Scrapbooks. Series 11: Photographs contains views of students, classes, and the facilities at Woodstock.

Studio and informal portraits of Alexander and Angelica Archipenko are by Frans Fiedlin, A. Elnain, Helen Balfour-Morrison, Cy Harriman, Gus Shroeder, A. Luckwin, Lary Colwell, Li Osborne, H. Tarr, and unknown photographers. They include a portrait of Angelica as a young girl, a contemporary copy print of Angelica with her father and sister, circa 1904, and several studio portraits made in Germany. Other people pictured include friends and possibly relatives, the majority of whom are unidentified; also, Frances Gray Archipenko, the second wife.
Nine photograph albums, 1925-1953, mainly document travel. Vol. 1, May-Nov. 1925, includes photographs and scenic post cards of Niagara Falls, Iowa, Colorado, New Mexico, and Canada; other subjects are friends (many identified), cowboys, Indians, cattle branding, landscapes, camping, and horses. Vol. 2, Aug.-Sept. 1925, contains photographs of a camping trip in Canada, with views of the landscape, friends (many identified), and activities; also included are pictures taken in Chicago, Los Angeles, and Arizona. Photographs of interest in vol. 3, 1925-1953, are Archipenko's first car, 1925; friends (many identified); Woodstock construction, 1930s; studio, kiln, and metal casting facilities, 1940s; Archipenko working with lucite, 1946; fire at Woodstock cottage, 1953; and two self-portraits painted by Angelica. Vol. 4, 1930s mainly records a trip to Bali and includes photographs of Walter Spies; also included are views aboard the Derffling, Suez Canal, Ceylon, Java, China, Japan, Philippines, Hawaii, California, and Archipenko at Mills College. Vol. 5, 1938-1941, consists of photographs taken in Mexico, mainly of San Miguel Allende and the Escuela Universitaria de Bellas Artes where Angelica Archipenko taught sculpture; included are views of classes, faculty, students and student work; also, views of Taxco, Mexico City, and Morelia. A fair number of photographs from the albums were duplicated for various purposes over the years, and these copies are now filed with the appropriate subseries.
There are a large number of slides, transparencies, negatives, and 86 lantern slides, and 80 glass plates. There may be prints of the vast majority of the negatives, though there are not negatives for every photograph in the collection. Most likely, the black and white lantern slides of ancient art, ethnographic objects, and biological and other specimens were used to illustrate a lecture or may have been collected as possible illustrations for a book.
Other photographs can be found with Series 4: Writings, which includes a few photographs collected as research notes or intended as illustrations; Series 5: Teaching, includes a scrapbook of the Archipenko Art School that contains pictures of students, and classes and facilities at Woodstock; and Series 7: Scrapbooks, with photographs of exhibition installations, and groups of people including students at Mills College.
The series is arranged as 9 subseries. Lantern slides and glass plates are housed separately with original folder divisions denoted by dividers; these materials are closed to researchers.
