(Box 1; 0.3 linear ft.; reel 5028)

General and family correspondence consists largely of incoming letters with some copies and drafts of outgoing letters. General correspondence is mainly professional in nature and documents exhibitions, commissions, teaching, memberships in artists organizations, and participation in the WPA Public Works of Art Project. A small number of letters from friends concerning personal and social matters are scattered throughout. Among the correspondents are Ansel Adams, American Artist, Sherwood Anderson, John Taylor Arms, Art Instruction, Hollywood Riviera Galleries, Dard Hunter, Estate of Bertha Jacques [Elizabeth Linsky, executor], National Academy of Design, and Print Makers Society of California. Family correspondence includes letters to Roi Partridge from Uncle Arnold Frank George, his father, and son Padraic. Letters addressed to Gryffyd and family are from Imogen Cunningham and Roi Partridge; letters from others about family members are also included.
