Box 1

Personal and professional correspondence span most of Wells' life, from his upbringing in Massachusetts, to his time spent in the military, and to his middle-aged years in New Mexico. There is much correspondence with his father, Channing Wells, particularly regarding his schooling and work prospects in the 1920s. His friendship with painter Georgia O'Keeffe is evident in a number of letters from the mid-1930s to the early 1940s. Other notable correspondents include Merle Armitage, Craig Barton, Elizabeth Boyd, Myron Brinig, Andrew Dasburg, Martha Graham, Erick Hawkins, Una Jeffers, Mabel Dodge Luhan, Georgia O'Keeffe, Anne Parrish, Olive Rush, Alfred Stieglitz, Edith Warner, Mason Wells, and Edward Weston.
The correspondence series begins with three folders of undated letters arranged alphabetically, followed by folders arranged in chronological order.
