Correspondence

Arrangement

The correspondence is chiefly arranged alphabetically by the surname of the correspondent with whom Hansen was writing (i.e. both letters written by and received by Hansen are filed together under the name of Hansen's correspondent). A set of rejection letters, as well as letters between Hansen and unidentified correspondents, are located at the end of the series. Miscellaneous single-item pieces (including fan mail) are filed together by the first letter of the correspondent's surname at the end of each letter, so for example "A Miscellaneous" can be found after "Autremont Editions."

Scope and Content Note

This series contains approximately 70 drawings on paper presumably by Jane Hansen. Many are signed with the initials JBH and the date 1963 or 1964. The drawings include pencil sketches and chalk pastels and include portraits chiefly of Barbara Hansen, floral designs, animals, and some landscapes. Many of the works look like they may possibly have been created as part of an art class.
