Series 3: General Writings , circa 1930-1954
0.9 Linear feet
Boxes 5-6

This series comprises some of McCausland's general writings apart from those related to specific research projects, including speeches and lectures, poems, and scattered essays and articles. Speeches and lectures include ones on art criticism and patronage, on the artist Marsden Hartley, and on various art topics given at various universities, conferences, meetings, and other events from 1940 to the mid-1950s. Poems most likely date from the 1930s and include manuscripts of individual poems and titled collections, which McCausland may have published on her own private press. Also found are some unpublished manuscripts, including two "dummy" articles written for a proposed magazine at the request of Bob Rogers and some material relating to a proposed book on silk screen, and a manuscript of an article on scientific photography by Willard D. Morgan, which may have been ghostwritten by McCausland.
General writings are arranged alphabetically. Related material can be found amongst research and writing files and correspondence.
This series has been scanned in its entirety.
