March 5, 1976 Ms. Carol Robinson Dear Ms. Robinson: Thank you for your letter dated February 29. I am glad that you are willing to have Katharine Rhoades's paintings preserved in one institution or another. I believe In the value of the work, and will be glad to advise you In any way that I can. Undoubtedly I can work with Nick on this. I think your decision about Elliott, the Steichen photographs and 291 is right. I would be interested in seeing the non-family pictures by Steichen. If you lend them to Elliott, I could see thera in New York. Otherwise, perhaps I could arrange to see them in some other way. Because I believe so strongly in the preservation of historic materials, particularly in the area in which I am writing. I would like to talk with you sometime about ultimate disposition of personal items which you wish to hold onto at the present. I feel the same way about Mrs. Elizabeth Rhoades Reynolds's materials. My inclination is not to see these things scattered but to have them go to one or two centrally located institutions so that they will be available for research and study. In any case let's stay in touch and I will be glad to do anything I can to help. Sincerely, William I. Homer Chairman
