1.1: Alphabetical Correspondence , 1942-2013

This subseries includes correspondence with artists, curators, art dealers, museums, universities, and galleries regarding a variety of topics, including upcoming exhibitions and publications. Notable correspondents include Pol Bury, Alexander Calder, Gordon Onslow Ford, Alberto Giacometti, Morris Graves, Dimitri Hadzi, Jacques Lipchitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, Ad Reinhardt, Mark Rothko, Jean Tinguely, and many others.
Alphabetical files, for the most part, represent general correspondence arranged by Selz. The correspondence relates to additional correspondence found in other series.

The last folder in the subseries consists of photocopies of letters from artists.
