Abstract:

Chiefly 171 watercolor illustrated letters by H.O. Kelly, written to William Weber Johnson and his wife Elizabeth Ann Johnson between 1948 and 1955. These letters formed the basis for William Weber Johnson's research for Kelly blue, a biography of Kelly, first published by Doubleday in 1960, with a foreword by Western writer Tom Lea. Kelly Blue was later published in 1979 in a revised, illustrated edition by Texas A & M University Press. The illustrations for the second edition of Kelly Blue include reproductions of paintings owned by J. Wayne Stark University Center Galleries at Texas A & M University. A smaller group of fifteen letters by H.O. Kelly are addressed to Dallas lawyer, Rudolph Johnson. Seventeen additional letters by Rudolph Johnson, typewritten on yellow paper between 1955 and 1958 are included. Of interest too is a letter to H.O. Kelly by Otto Kallir of the Galerie St. Etienne in New York City, requesting some of Kelly's works to be displayed in an exhibition of American primitive artists to be mounted at the Galerie early in 1952. Publications for a 1958 exhibition at the Smithsonian and a 1950 exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art are also present.
