Series 7: Teaching, 1929-1995 ,
(Box 26; .8 linear feet)

This series documents Falkenstein's long career as a teacher and lecturer with correspondence, contracts, and notes on her many lecture engagements at schools, galleries, museums, and art associations. The remaining files document Falkenstein's teaching positions, including her first position at Mills College in California from 1946-1947. These files include lesson plans and notes, contracts, and correspondence. The files on her tenure at the Pond Farm Workshops are particularly interesting, with notes about her fellow teacher Frans Wildenhain and correspondence with workshop owners, Jane and Gordon Herr.
