Abstract:

Collection consists of the papers of Jerry Slocum and the Slocum Puzzle Foundation.

Correspondence includes letters from Will Shortz, editor of crossword puzzles for The New York Times; Martin Gardner, writer of Scientific American's popular "Mathematical Games" column for twenty-five years; and Ricky Jay, magician and actor. Research Files include subseries of materials from Jack Botermans, David Klarner, Leon Bankhoff, and Holger Larsen, all friends and colleagues of Slocum. Writings include drafts, page proofs, and accompanying research materials for Slocum's publications. The series on Patents contains photocopies of puzzle patents from 1849 to 1989. The Rubik's Cube Trial series features depositions and transcripts from the 1982 patent infringement suit in which Slocum was a key witness. Puzzle Descriptions is an extensive card file describing Jerry Slocum's puzzle collections as well as puzzles that have appeared in exhibitions. The Education series features materials on the use of puzzles in mostly K-8 classroom settings. Additionally, there are several oversized posters, prints, page proofs, and other materials.
