4.1: Correspondence , 1943-1997

Business correspondence is filed as letters sent and received and mainly concerns the purchase and sale of art and antiques, exhibitions at Carlen Galleries, loans to exhibitions held elsewhere, and reference queries. A small number of files labeled with the name of the correspondent have been integrated into the chronological sequence in the appropriate places. A small amount of additional correspondence, 1943-1996 and undated, is designated personal. It includes thank you notes and letters from the Carlens' daughters and friends, correspondence about Social Security benefits, taxes and the care of Carlen's father, Morris Cohen. A few letters post-dating Robert Carlen's death and the closing of his gallery concern paintings.
