6.1: Critical Biography Files , 1911-1964, bulk 1953-1964

Subseries consists of files relating to McCausland's work researching and writing a planned critical biography of the artist Marsden Hartley. McCausland began work on the biography sometime after her monograph on Hartley was published in 1952. She worked on the Hartley biography for several years off and on up until her death in 1965, though it was never completed. Files are primarily comprised of notes on Hartley's life and work (organized according to time period), as well as some research material, including typescripts and some originals of Hartley's letters, exhibition catalogs and other printed material, and scattered papers belonging to Hudson Walker and relating to Hartley. Also found are an outline and a manuscript of Chapters 1-3 of the planned biography, and some notes and research material on exhibitions, memorabilia, and portaits.
Most of the material is undated, yet it can be reasonably assumed that it was collected and created during the time period from 1953 to 1964, roughly when McCausland was working on the biography.
Files are arranged in alphabetical order. Related material can be found in correspondence and general files and other research files within this series. This material was most likely originally kept in notebooks, but was removed from them at some previous point in time, perhaps during preliminary processing.
This subseries has been scanned in its entirety.
