4 Linear feet
Box 1-5

Personal and professional correspondence dates from 1953-2016 and includes illustrated letters, postcards, greeting cards, and memoranda. There is correspondence with her husband, children, and close friends, and letters from galleries, museums, and other arts organizations. Notable correspondents include Sally Avery, Dody Müller, Robert (Bob) Richenburg, as well as Dorothy Gill Barnes, Elaine Benson, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, and Myron Stout. One digital video recording found among the correspondence with Kate Prendergast, Marcus' daughter, documents the storage of Marcus' paintings.
Marcia Marcus's letter drafts and letters to unidentified recipients are at the beginning of the series. The rest of the series is arranged alphabetically by correspondent. Correspondents with first names only are grouped separately at toward the end of the series, followed by letters from unidentified correspondents, and greeting cards.
The bulk of this series has been digitized, except for duplicates and two folders of greeting cards.
