'fp Jonathan Weinberg 289 Barrow Street Jersey City, New Jersey 07302 (201) 332-4704 April 9, 1986 Prof. William Homer Department of Art History University of Delaware Newark, Delaware Dear Prof. Homer: I am a Ph.D. candidate at Harvard's Department of Fine Arts currently working on my thesis entitled 'Homosexuality, Marginality, and American Avant-Garde Painting: 1910-1940.' The work centers around the art of Marsden Hartley and Charles Demuth. My advisor for the thesis is T.J. Clark. Enclosed is a copy of my dissertation proposal. Your collection of the Hartley-Traubel correspondence, Heart's Gate, is obviously crucial for my project. Unfortunately, I missed your recent paper on Hartley and Ryder which you gave at the CAA meeting. Are you planning to publish it in the near future? Are you continuing to work on other aspects of Hartley's career? I would very much like to hear your reaction to the proposal. Do you get to New York City often? (I currently am teaching art history at Cooper Union). It would be great to meet at some point and compare notes on Hartley. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Jonathan Weinberg
