MULTI-SERVICE ONE LOW ROAD SHARON, CONN. 06069 303-364-5534 March 8, 1976 Dr. Williajn I. Homer 342 Smith Hall University of Delaware . .. „ Newark, Delaware 19711 Dear Dr. Homer: Thank you so much for your letter which came today. We will take whatever advice you feel best regarding Miss Rhoades'a paintings and if you will let me know what I should do, I will be glad to start in. Scott Elliot was in yesterday - and to my total surprise, the 'non-family pictxires by Steichen' t\arn out to be by Stieglitz! Needless to say, I am not only untutored but a total idiot. Amongst them - and this one I only just fo\and - is a perfectly su¬ perb photograph of Miss Rhoades. It was taken at the same time as the one Mrs. Resmolds has . He has taJcen the lot with him. The one of Miss Rhoades he is going to put in the current exhibit; the rest, including the Steichen WWI aerials, he will try to sell. He has also taken a number of the family photographs by Steichen for his coming exhibit eoid for cataloguing as they are totally unrecorded, I was rather amused. He said 'when you said you had children's and baby photographs, I thoiight you meant children's and baby photographs - I mean - well, you know what I mean - but these are MAGNIFICENT•». Whether they really are, I don't know; but we have always thought they are quite special. As to historic materials - why don't we talk about it. I think that would be best. Do you ever get to New York? I could get down there, but only on a week end which might not be convenient. Sincerely, OC/«SL«LJU
