FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM WASHINGTON, D. C. April 6, 1999 Dr. William I. Homer Department of Art History University of Delaware Dear Bill: Seeing you in Delaware reminded me that I need to follow up, sooner rather than later, on your generous offer to share your Steichen files. As one who very early on recognized the talent of Steichen as a painter, your material accumulated over the years must be rich with information. There is more that should be done and can be done as the locations of more paintings are identified. Just this weekend, a colleague informed me of yet another painting gathering dust in a museum collection. My lecture for the brown bag at the National Museum of American Art, generated an invitation to submit a paper for pubHcation in their journal. Since that talk my ideas have evolved even further with new ideas. Perhaps at some point, you would care to look at the manuscript. But, for the moment, how shall we deal with your files? What is the nature of the files? Are they photo files? You seemed to suggest that it is not necessary for me to make a trip to Delaware. Let me know how you would like to proceed. And, of course, I do have E-mail. My address is email@example.com. Sincerely, Mary Anne Goley Director Fine Arts Program
