Abstract:

Biographical material, correspondence, personal business records, notes, teaching files, writings, interview transcripts, printed material, and photographs document the life and career of photographer Imogen Cunningham.

Biographical material includes a birth certificate, 5 biographical sketches, 4 award certificates, and a diploma for an honorary degree from the California College of Arts and Crafts. Correspondence, 1909-1991, is with family, friends, photographers, publishers, museums, galleries, universities and art organizations. Among the correspondents are Alvar Aalto, Ansel Adams, Laura Andreson, Edgar Bissantz, Margaret Bourke-White, Horace Bristol, Wynn Bullock, John Butler, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Lyonel Feininger, the George Eastman House, Morris Graves, Lillian Hellman, Henry Gallery, Consuelo Kanaga, Dorothea Lange, Margery Mann, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Beaumont Newhall, Arnold Newman, Sonya Noskowiak, Georgia O'Keeffe, Allon Schoener, Charles Sheeler, Edward Steichen, Otto Steinert, Paul Strand, Karl Struss, Alice B. Toklas, Willard Van Dyke, Edward Weston, Minor White, Lee Witkin of the Witkin Gallery, and William Zorach.

Legal and financial material includes loan agreements, Cunningham's will, 1962, insurance policies, bank account records, 1944-1973, check registers, 1966-1968, household accounts, 1950-1953, and records of the Imogen Cunningham Trust, 1974-1976. Notes, 1959-1968, include 4 address books, a notebook, lecture notes, and miscellaneous notes. Teaching files, 1964-1971, contain photographs of students and their critiques of their own work. Writings, ca. 1910-1976, are by Cunningham, including an essay "About the Direct-Development of of Platinum Papers for Brown Tones", and by others, including writings about Cunningham, and reviews of the book Imogen Cunningham: Photographs, 1970.

Two transcripts are from an undated video interview and a radio interview, 1951. Printed material, 1903-1991, consists of clippings, exhibition announcements and catalogs, press releases, calendars of events, programs, brochures, reproductions of art work, and miscellaneous printed material. Photographs, 1916-1976, are of Cunningham, family members, friends, residences, gallery openings and installations, and art work by others. Only four photographs were taken by Cunningham; they are enclosures in letters from John Butler, Lucy Coe, Pearl Cunningham, and Elizabeth Parker.
