7.6: Writings by Others, circa 1950-1980

Found here are articles, poems, essays, and unpublished manuscripts mostly about Parsons and the Betty Parsons Gallery, including a typescript for an unpublished monograph, "An American Gallery," written by art critic Lawrence Alloway. Related correspondence can be found in the Alloway folders in the Betty Parsons Papers Correspondence files. Also included is a proposal for a documentary film about Betty Parsons titled "Keeper of the Treasure"; it does not appear that this project was realized. Other writings are related to art, dance, and poetry, including a notebook of poems by Parsons Gallery artist, Dorothy Sturm.
Files are arranged by alphabetically by author, followed by one file of miscellaneous essays and poems.
