October 23, 1979 Dear Dr. Homer Thought you'd appreciate a note on my Allen Lewis stationary. My trip out there went well. The prints looked nice and my lecture went well. I am having them send on a catalogue to you, so if you don't receive one, let me know, and I will prod them. Did I tell you I found a view of the interior of 291 with Lewis's show installed? I can get you a print if you like. Wheaton had a small, but interesting American art collection, with works in various media (mainly prints and drawings) by Shinn, Sloan, Luks, Whistler, Slackens, Speicher, Charles Locke, JJ Lankes, and Gordon Craig, in addition to the Lewis stuff. Got into the city for the day, made a trip to the Art Institute, and was thrilled to find they had not one, but two works by Guy Pene du Bois hanging in their galleries. Made my day, needless to say. Have gotten some good replies on him from my NY Times Book review query. And have started to write. Recent College Art Association jobs listings out—very depressing, as a lot I qualify for are in Tennessee. I really do want to stay east, and preferably no further south than Washington. I suppose I have to start sending out resumes, but my enthusiasm for going west is not keen. Yankee orientation dies hard. Corcoran show progressing well. Hope all is well with you.
