ARCHIVES OF AMERICAN ART April 24, 1973 Mr. William Homer Department of Art History University of Delaware Newark, Delaware 19711 Dear Bill: Miss Norma Berger does indeed control literary rights in all Hartley writings, including letters. Moreover, she is well aware of the fact. When Elizabeth McCausland was working on her Hartley book, her relations with Miss Berger became quite strained - so much so, in fact, that Miss Berger refused her permission to quote from the letters. I don't know whether Miss Berger has ever granted permission to quote from letters in the McCausland collection or even whether she is aware of them. Arnason would have needed to ask for it, but I don't know again whether he ever got far enough with his book to apply. I'm afraid you'll have to write her a tactful letter and hope for the best. I'll be glad to hear how you make out.
