6.2: Journal, 1981-1987

This subseries consists of the editorial files relating to the
Journal.
Files include proposals, correspondence, interview transcripts, manuscript drafts and final copy. Of special interest is an unedited transcript of an interview with Bruce Nauman in 1982, and unedited transcripts of oral history interviews with LAICA staff members (see "Interviews" by Robert Pincus in issue #40).
The files have been arranged in chronological order by issue number, and then organized by the order of that issue's contents. Manuscripts written for or published in unknown issues have been placed at the end of this subseries.
