Series 4: Writings and Notes , 1958-circa 1990
4.25 Linear feet
Boxes 2-6, 19

A wide range of Wortz's writings are collected in this series, including independent professional writings, and writings produced during Wortz's tenure at the University of California, Irvine. Also found are notes and essays from her student years at various schools.
Some draft manuscripts of articles and essays are individually named, while others are grouped chronologically. Manuscripts believed to be drafts for exhibitions catalogs are identified as "exhibition essays/introductions," but may replicate some of the material arranged as "articles/essays." In addition to typed drafts, xome folders contain related documentation such as scattered correspondence, notes, printed material, and photographic material.
Class notes include examination books and typescripts of class essays, in addition to notes taken in classes, and additional course material.
Copies of Wortz's published catalogs, essays, and articles have been collected in this series, with the exception of UCI printed material that contains writings by Wortz. That material is housed with other UCI Fine Arts Gallery exhibition material Series 6.1.
