 Dates:  1963-1994, undated 
 Abstract:  Collection of thirty-three unpublished letters from Joseph Cornell to Susanna De Maria Wilson, one of his assistants and wife of the minimalist sculptor Walter De Maria.

The letters are as much a collection of collage work and mail art as they are archival documents.
