7.3: Correspondence , circa 1932-1983

Series consists of Parsons' incoming and outgoing correspondence originally maintained within her personal papers, although it appears to be a mixture of personal and professional correspondence. It includes not only letters from friends and family, but also from museum directors, art dealers, researchers, gallery artists, and artists seeking representation from the Betty Parsons Gallery. General correspondence primarily consists of personal letters from friends, while chronological correspondence includes primarily business-related letters. No attempt was made to reconcile the two systems since this arrangement may have originated with the creator.
Correspondence is arranged into three sub-subseries:
  • 7.3.1: General Correspondence, circa 1932-1982
  • 7.3.2: Chronological Correspondence, circa 1938-1983
  • 7.3.3. Travel Correspondence and Documentation, 1958-1977
This series has been digitized in entirety.
