1.1: General Biographical Files , 1934-1997

This subseries contains awards, honorary degrees, interviews, passports, resumes, appointment calendars, and address books. The appointment calendars, resumes, and interviews document Falkenstein's busy schedule and focus on making her art accessible to the public. The short interview on motion picture film is particularly interesting as she talks about her ideas for the window design at St. Basil's Church.
The files are arranged alphabetically by type of material and then chronologically by date.
