February I, 1978 Mr. John Paul Driscoll 1355 Harris Street State College, PA 16801 Dear Mr. Driscoll: Thank you for your kind note of January 11. I was interested in your concerns with Sheeler and Hartley. I do not know of any photographic documentation of Hartley's paintings from 1907-9. I do not believe any gallery installation shots of his exhibitions at ''291' exist. I have never seen or heard of them. There seem to be very few reproductions of Hartley's work of the period in question (1907-9, or earlier). Major work on this artist was done by Elizabeth McCausland, and the Hartley papers have been microfilmed, including her researches, by the Archives of American Art. You might write them to see if you can obtain the microfilms on loan. I should warn you, however, that for a time they have been restricted, and this still may be in effect. Best of luck in your researches. Please let me hear of the results. Sincerely, William I. Homer Chairman P.S. What is your research for, a graduate project or Independent work?
