Herms (George) Papers
Series III. Journals and working notes, 1960-2009 8.42 Linear Feet (13 boxes, 1 flatfile folder)
Series III contains the notes, reflections, and daily materials that Herms refers to as comprising a snapshot of his brain. Often there are handmade calendars, astrological charts, and poetry. Some journals pertain to a specific project and may therefore overlap with Series IV. Project and exhibition files. Phone numbers, business appointments, and grocery lists appear in this series when found in combination with drawings or other artistic content, while exclusively mundane materials are more likely filed under Series X. Personal.
Arrangement
Arranged in chronological order by year. Where the artist was not able to assign a specific year, he indicated the decade, as, for example, 1960s, or sometimes mid-1960s, or late-1960s. These files are grouped at the beginning of a given decade.
