Brown (Jean) papers
Series III. Topical ephemera, 1917-1989, bulk 1965-1989 ca. 17 linear ft. 12 boxes and 5 flat folders
Series III includes printed ephemera and some clippings arranged by subject: copy art, Dada and Surrealism, dance, Fluxus, happenings, mail art, music, poetry, rubber stamp printing, semiotics, small presses, and video. Items typically document group activities occurring in venues different from those in Series II. The small presses section, the bulk of this series, is comprised of catalogs and publicity from publishers, distributors and bookstores dealing in artists' books, poetry and art multiples. Notations by Brown record her acquisitions. Most topics are arranged chronologically, except for the semiotics and small presses sections which are filed alphabetically.
