Abstract: A significant ensemble of letters and writings by or addressed to Man Ray and collected by his sister Elsie Ray Siegler and her daughter Naomi Savage. The letters provide a rich chronicle of Man Ray's personal and professional life from 1922 to 1976. Letters to Man Ray are from Dada and surrealist artists and authors, and document the dynamic artistic and literary scenes of the immediate pre- and post-World War II period in the United States. An album of Man Ray's predominately handwritten manuscripts supplements the letters.
