Box 19-25
Writings date from 1947-2011 and contain manuscripts, lectures, notes, sixty notebooks, ten diaries, and a small number of writings by others. Manuscripts include hundreds of essays, articles, introductions, and reviews, as well as a few books and book chapters, including A Joseph Cornell Album (1974), A Fable of Modern Art (1980) and Delicate Thread: Teshigahara's Life in Art (1997). Manuscripts are mostly typescripts, with a small number of published versions of Ashton's writings in magazines. Occasional items of correspondence, handwritten notes, and other reference articles are found in the folders. Lectures contain typescripts of talks given at colleges, universities, museums and as part of symposia, conferences, commencements, and exhibition related programming. Notes and notebooks contain a set of index cards with research and quotations by various artists and thinkers, two folders of scattered notes on a variety of subjects, and sixty notebooks. The majority of the notebooks are travel related and contain logistical notes, jottings, lists, names and addresses, thoughts and reflections, as well as sketches. Ten diaries chronicle Ashton's day-to-day life, and contain illuminating recounts of dinner parties and conversations with artists and writers. Writings by others predominantly contain writings by art historian and friend Fred Licht, but other writings by friends are also found here, as well as one file of unidentified writings.
