Physical Description: 13.26 linear feet (31 boxes, 1 flatfile folder)

Scope and Content Note

The correspondence series contains correspondence and related material from Sleigh's personal and professional life. Material dates from the later 19th century through to her death in 2010. In general, there is little material from Sleigh to others; the majority is from others to Sleigh.
Material includes letters, address books, and mailings lists.

The series is comprised of two subseries: Series I.A. General correspondence, circa 1920-2010; and Series I.B. Correspondence related, 1974-circa 2000s.
It should be noted that correspondence has been interfiled in other series. For example, correspondence concerning specific exhibitions has been placed in the corresponding file within Series II. Project files.
 

Series I.A. General correspondence, circa 1920-2010

Physical Description: 12.34 linear feet (28 boxes, 1 flatfile folder)

Scope and Content Note

General correspondence comprised the majority of the correspondence from the Sleigh papers, both personal and professional. Correspondents include close family and friends such as Sleigh's mother, Katherine Cancedda; father, John Sleigh; mother-in-law, Nora Alloway; former sister-in-law, Margaret Greenwood; English friends, Freda Wadsworth and Muriel Ottaway-Williams; and Sleigh's first husband, Michael Greenwood. See the Lawrence Alloway papers for more correspondence between Sleigh and Alloway, Sleigh's second husband.
Additionally, correspondents include many people who were both colleagues in the art world and friends of Sleigh's: Eleanor Antin, Helene Aylon, June Blum, Suzi Gablik, Ada and Alex Katz, Bibi Lencek, Rosemary Mayer, Sabra Moore, Lucy Sallick, Rhea Sanders, Nancy Spero, May Stevens, and William Stipe. There is much correspondence from the museums and galleries with which she worked such as Deson Gallery, G.W. Einstein Company, Inc., Hemingway Galleries, Milwaukee Museum of Art, Smart Museum of Art, and Zaks Gallery; and regarding the publications she was involved with such as Womanart and Visual Dialog.

Arrangement

General correspondence has been arranged alphabetically by correspondent. In general, if there are fewer than five pieces of correspondence with a person or institution it has been filed within the alphabetical letter file. When there exist five or more pieces of correspondence, the correspondent has been given his or her own folder. When appropriate, it has been further arranged chronologically.

Scope and Content Note

Sleigh maintained these files of women artists' ephemera. They have been kept as is here, and not integrated with other ephemera in the collection. Therefore, artists represented here will frequently have material in the general ephemera file as well. It is unclear exactly when and for long Sleigh maintained these files or what her criteria were for inclusion. The bulk of the ephemera dates to the later 1970s and early 1980s.

Arrangement

Sleigh's arrangement is maintained. Material is organized alphabetically by the artists' last names.
