Wagstaff (Samuel) Papers
Series IV. Correspondence, 1909-1986 2.9 Linear Feet (9 boxes)
Correspondence includes all letters that were not identified by Wagstaff as being part of another series. The bulk of series IV correspondence spans the time after Wagstaff stopped working as a professional curator and instead had moved back to New York to focus on collecting photography. Letters received are often from admirers, staff from cultural institutions, friends and artists.
Arrangement
Correspondence was organized by Wagstaff chronologically, alphabetically by artist or institution, and by subject. There is redundancy between the arrangements.
