Series 1: Correspondence , 1909-1964
(Reels 4524-4527)

This series contains letters from many prominent individuals who played a significant role in Russell's artistic development, including Mabel Alvarez, Robert Henri, Walter Huston, Michel Kikoine, Stanton Macdonald-Wright, Leo Stein, Igor Stravinsky, and Getrude Vanderbilt Whitney.
The series begins with correspondence with named correspondents. Named files are arranged alphabetically and then chronologically. This is followed by miscellaneous correspondence, arranged chronologically.
Postcards have generally been separated from the miscellaneous correspondence and filmed separately in order to maintain the lender's arrangement, although some postcards are interfiled with the named and miscellaneous correspondence. These are indicated by an asterisk.
