6.4: Correspondence and General Files , 1900-1964, bulk 1950-1964

Subseries consists of correspondence and other files concerning more technical or business-related aspects of McCausland's research, including requests for information, business arrangements with University of Minnesota, permissions, etc. Correspondence also concerns research on Hartley's time in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and aspects of his life and work (including his relationship and correspondence with Rebecca S. James); the Hartley exhibition organized by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and American Federation of Arts (1960-1962); the Life Magazine article on Hartley, as well as several articles by McCausland (including a reprint of a speech on Hartley published in Art in America and a piece entitled, "A Field Trip in Hartley Country," for which she sought a publisher); and McCausland's consulting on Hartley forgeries. Files also include original letters from Hartley to Richard Tweedy, 1900-1901 (which were given to the American Art Research Council at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1945, and subsequently turned over to Elizabeth McCausland), Hudson Walker, 1937-1943, and Johann Langaard, 1939; typescripts of Hartley's letters to Mathilde Rice, Hudson Walker, and Ione Walker; and typescript excerpts of Hartley's letters to unidentified recipients.
Related correspondence can also be found amongst general correspondence. Files are arranged in alphabetical order.
Almost all of the material in this subseries has been scanned, except for duplicate materials and the photographs of works of art. Only the cover and title pages for a few of the publications have been scanned.
