Alloway (Lawrence) papers

Container List

Series I. Correspondence 1938-2000 5.83 Linear Feet
The collection's highlight is the correspondence between Alloway and Sleigh. Married until 1954 to Michael Greenwood, Sleigh received Alloway's passionate letters in which he attempted to seduce her to leave her husband with detailed discussions of her paintings and art history. Many Alloway letters include drawings portraying himself as a human lion named Dandylion. There are also occasional clippings and abundant poems. Sleigh replied in kind, if less extensively. From the years of their long marriage, there is one box of letters between the couple and artists or other friends, and one of professional correspondence, mainly with publishers.

Series II. Work files 1935-1995 12.6 Linear Feet
Organized into two subseries, these files span Alloway's entire career and encompass materials collected for research, notes, drafts, completed manuscripts, and clippings of published articles.
Series II. A. Topics and artists files 1943-1994 6.25 Linear Feet
This series reflects Alloway's habit of collecting materials on a given topic, and referring to them and amplifying them over many years. Research materials, notes, outlines, drafts, and writings are organized alphabetically by topic, followed by a second grouping, Artists' files, 1960-1990. Except for first two files in Box 21 folders are arranged alphabetically by the artist's last name, with some artists' files included under a given topic. Folder contents have been left more or less as received, so the date range of clippings may overlap.
