Series 2: Correspondence , 1940s-2011
0.7 Linear feet
Box 1-2

Correspondence is both personal and professional in nature. Personal correspondence is between Cosmos and friends, family, and pen pals. Items include postcards, holiday cards, greeting cards, and a few exhibition announcements. Professional correspondence relates to Cosmos's artwork, photographs, or objects he had lent for exhibition or publication. Notable correspondents include Milton Glaser, Tom O'Horgan, curators Elisabeth Sussman and Catherine Morris, art director at the New York Times Jerelle Kraus, and one letter from Meyer Schapiro from 1982. Several items of correspondence with state representatives and law makers express Cosmos's concerns over public health issues such as car crashes and lung poisoning from tobacco products. The last folder contains several drafts and photocopies of letters Cosmos wrote to Sussman, Glaser, Doon Arbus, and others.
