Abstract:

The Correspondence and Miscellaneous Subjects files include a body of materials related to the annual convention of the American Federation of Arts which was held in Houston in 1957 (April 3-6) under the joint sponsorship of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and the Contemporary Arts Museum. The convention was largely organized by Malone and John de Menil. Correspondents include Daniel Longwell, then President of the American Federation of Arts; Robert David Straus; Stanley Marcus; Harris Masterson; and Jermayne McAgy. Speakers and panelists present were Meyer Schapiro; James Johnson Sweeney, subsequently Director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston from 1961 to 1967; Stuart Davis; William C. Seitz; Marcel Duchamp; Jimmy Ernst; and Vincent Price. Transcripts of speeches and panel discussions are included, as well as printed ephemera such as the program booklet for the convention and AFA newsletters.

The files also contain materials related to the 1956 meeting of the Houston Fine Arts Forum (March 9-11) which explored "American Heritage and the Southwest". Correspondents include Alice Winchester, then editor of the periodical "Antiques"; Ralph E. Carpenter, Jr.; Marshall B. Davidson; Henry Needham Flynt; Maxim Karolik; John Palmer Leeper; and Paul Horgan. The papers contain texts of the talks given at the sessions.

Also featured is Director Malone's 1959 report entitled "Looking Ahead for the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston"; his 1957 accessions plan, with priority lists of works to be acquired for the permanent collection; lists of objects approved for deaccessioning in 1957; and extensive correspondence with galleries and dealers concerning possible accessions. A small amount of Malone's miscellaneous correspondence is also present.
