Abstract:

Letters and manuscripts collected by the artist Enit Kaufman in preparation for the publication of American Portraits make up the bulk of these papers. The papers are subdivided into two series: Correspondence, 1914-1958, and Statements of Leadership, 1933-1944.

Included in the collection are letters from three of the four presidents Kaufman painted, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Other letters come from an eclectic range of correspondents: Walter B. Cannon, Willa Cather, James Bryant Conant, John Dewey, Albert Einstein, Robert Frost, Helen Hayes, Ernest Hemingway, Mordecai Johnson, Rufus Jones, Archibald MacLeish, Reinhold Niebuhr, John D. Rockefeller, Eleanor Roosevelt, Arthur Hays Sulzberger, and Frank Lloyd Wright, among others. Some of these are responses to Kaufman's request to schedule sittings, others are letters of introduction to friends and acquaintances who might be willing to participate in the project. The series of Statements of Leadership consists of a single folder of handwritten and typed reflections and quotations on the nature of leadership by many of the subjects of American Portraits.
