6.1: Administrative Files, 1960-1991
2.8 Linear feet
Wortz's administrative files document her wide range of activities and responsibilities at UCI, as Chair of Studio Art, as Director of the Fine Arts Gallery, and as an administrator involved in many campus-wide and University system-wide departments and committees.
General correspondence and memoranda files, and administrative files arranged by subject, document these activities and events through correspondence, memoranda, committee files, planning documents and reports, and printed and photographic material. Wortz's involvement in the Intercampus Arts Committee is heavily documented, as is her administration of the Fine Arts Gallery. Gallery files include planning documents, correspondence and memoranda, lists, schedules, budget material, and published catalogs of exhibitions at the Fine Arts Gallery and other University of California museums and galleries. Many of the catalogs include essays and introductions written by Wortz.
