School of Art Arizona State University Tempe, AZ 85287-1505 Dear Bill: Thanks for your recent note. I haven't a clue what I might have scribbled on my card to you regarding my Stieglitz project (it certainly wasn't a query). I've had some personal amusement over the fact that I am once again thinking about AS in a scholarly way- -shades of graduate student days--I guess you never really leave home. I am also a little daunted about venturing into AS-OK territory, but these photographs are so intriguing, that I can't resist! I stopped at the National Gallery in March and we matched up my photos with ones taken by AS, which was great fun. And Sue Davidson Lowe helped me plot them out on her Lake George compound map. Grant or no grant, I will still have to go to the Beinecke. Hoping I might get there for a few days this summer, though schedule is a little up in the air (explanation follows). Certainly December Ii have 8 1 February deadline). If do get east occasionally, though this summer it will be almost all New England. I need to spend some extended time with my mother- -my father has severe Alzheimer's, and we are in the process of getting him hospitalized first in a psychiatric unit (he has been highly delusional and violent), and ultimately into long term care. Then I'll go to Maine for some vacation, which will be most welcome since I took none last summer, when I finished the book ms. I'll have a week in Bar Harbor at my favorite shingle style (my favorite architectural style) bed and breakfast. I am eagerly y looking forward to lobster consumption. I've had a busy spring, with lots of deadlines; including an essay on Guy Pene du Bois in the 1923 (I'll send you a copy when it comes out). But mainly my attention has been focused on getting the photographs and permissions for my Weir book (I did tell you that it will be published by the University of Delaware Press? Wayne was a great help in this). The process has been a slow (not to mention expensive) one--trying to get institutions to simply answer their mail has been very frustrating, I am hoping they last Svill be in by the time of return mid June, and hope to send it off by 1 July. 1 won't be back in proximity to your air space until October, when I have a conference in Washington (hopefully y they will accept my paper). By the way, I am going up for full professor next fall, and I plan to put your name on the list of those they might contact as an outside referee (assume this is OK with you?). I hope you have a pleasant and productive summer. Much as I like to write, I have had so many deadlines this spring, am looking forward to s month without prose, I feel a bit like a well that is low--with only monosyllables left! Good luck with your projects.
