Series 1: Letters , 1957-2012
5.3 Linear feet
Boxes 1-6, OV 8

Most letters are from other mail artists. Many are about correspondence art and the artists' careers. Letters from some artists who became close friends focus on personal and family news. There is a digital version of Collected Essays by John Held, Jr. Other letters contain invitations to exchange work, exhibit, or participate in mail art projects. Enclosures are frequent and include found objects, a wide variety of printed materials, and a few small artifacts.
Letters are alphabetized by name of sender. Miscellaneous files for each letter of the alphabet contain letters from correspondents represented by fewer than 5 letters; within each folder, material is in rough alphabetical order.
Throughout this series, envelopes precede their contents and the address sides of post cards and aerograms face upward. Letters without envelopes, empty envelopes, and separated enclosures are placed at the ends of folders. Researchers must take care to maintain the order and should notify reference staff if the arrangement appears to have been disturbed.
