1.1:Alphabetical, 1945-1969, circa 1975-1978

The incoming and outgoing correspondence is a mix of professional and personal in nature, the bulk of which dates from 1945-1965. Correspondence is often regarding organizing exhibitions and arranging visits to D.C., the school, administrative affairs, Richman's poetry, and his work at "New Republic." Correspondents are mostly artists, writers, friends, colleagues, collaborating organizations, benefactors, dignitaries and others. Of interest is correspondence with Alexander Giampietro, Naum Gabo, Erick Hawkins, Duncan Phillips, and Hans Richter.
Folders are arranged alphabetically by correspondent's name.
