Yale University Press telephone: (203)432-4969 mail: 97,A YALE STATION, NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT 0652O telex: 963531 cables: YALEPRESS May 8, 1980 Mr. William I. Homer Department of Art History 318 Old College . University of Delaware Newark, Delaware 19711 Dear Mr. Homer: I am so glad that Marsden Hartley has once again provided an opportunity for me to be in touch with you. I haven't re-read Barbara Haskell's catalogue, but I am sure all readers owe an indebtedness to you for its improvement. As I mentioned on the phone, your comments were passed on to her anonymously through the publictions director at the Whitney (who was also unaware of your Identity). I even insisted that your handwritten comments on the manuscript be transcribed before she saw them! Your own book on Stieglitz and the history of the Photo-Secession sounds very promising, and I look forward to having a proposal for it next fall. It would certainly fit in with the list of books I am trying to develop in this field. I hope this letter will serve as a reminder of my keen interest in it. Meanwhile, many thanks for your suggestions on readers for Gail Scott's Hartley volume. I hope your year of absence from the department will be a productive one for you. Sincerely yours. Judy Metro
