Series 2: Correspondence , 1928-1990s
1.7 Linear feet
Boxes 1-3

Correspondence, both personal and professional in nature, is addressed to Brooks and to the couple. There is overlap between general correspondence and other categories. Art correspondence covers exhibitions, loans, commissions, projects; arrangements with museums and galleries; sales and consignments; as well as letters from friends and admirers of his work. Most personal correspondence from friends and colleagues is of a social nature. Teaching correspondence requests that Brooks consider opportunities to teach in various summer programs, participate in studio tours for students, or serve as a visiting artist/critic; also included are a few course rosters.
Correspondence – general and each of the categories designated by Brooks (art, autograph requests, personal, and teaching) – is arranged by year. Additional correspondence is scattered throughout the papers.
