Series IV. Manuscript Material

Scope and Contents note

Subseries IV.1 Correspondence contains letters, e-mails, postcards and telegrams from 1961-2009. Several letters of thanks came from Gotfryd’s subjects, including ones from Ralph Ginzburg, Elia Kazan, David Lilienthal, Meyer Schapiro and Harvey Swados.

Subseries IV.2 Ephemera includes auction catalogs, magazine and newspaper clippings, exhibition announcements, invitations and tickets. A large number of press passes are for events; they include the 1976 Olympics, 1968 Nixon Presidential Campaign, 1965 and 1978 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and Pope John Paul I’s 1976 visit to New York. The subseries contains eleven postcards, printed by Fotofolio, featuring Gotfryd’s photographs. There is also a student's master’s thesis, in Polish, about Gotfryd's photographic work. Oversize material, such as full newspaper sheets and exhibition posters, is housed in flat files and listed separately.
