Gail R. Scott 5555 Lawton Ave. Oakland, Ca. 94618 June 23, 1978 Professor William I. Homer, Chairman Department of Art History University of Delaware Newark, Delaware 19711 Dear Professor Homer, I never heard from H.H. Arnason—not even a polite 'no!' But I have gotten hold of the Adelaide Kuntz correspondence which I had thought was tied up with the McCausland material. With that and the Stieglitz correspondence—plus a 1954 dissertation on Hartley's writing career which I have recently obtained—I think I have enough information to formulate a comprehensive chronology to suit my research needs. Unless you think there might be other valuable material pertinent to Hartley as a writer in the McCausland notes, I see no reason at this time, to pursue Arnason's reluctant permission for access to the archive. Perhaps, as you suggested, I might at some time, review your notes from the McCausland files, to fill in any gaps in my knowledge. I will be coming east again next week to finish the Stieglitz correspondence which I began in April, and to do some collating of manuscripts. Although I do not know what your summer schedule entails, I will try to give you a call. Have you seen the new book on Sadakichi Hartmann, The Valiant Knights of Da^aruerre put out by the University of California Press? It was presented to me by the U.C. Press editor with whom I have been discussing my project. She suggested it might serve as a possible model for a collection of Hartley's essays. Although I don't envision the edition as being quite such a 'picture book' and there is still the poetry to consider, still I am encouraged by her enthusiasm and continued interest in the project. Best regards, Gail R. Scott
