Summary:
Correspondence, writings and diary entries, scrapbooks, printed materials, and photographs documenting Riveron's career as an illustrator, cartoonist, painter and sculptor in the United States, Cuba, and to a lesser degree, his teaching career at Wichita University, Kan.
Correspondence, 1941-1990, is with artists and others, including Mario Carreño, Julio de Diego, Attonio Gattorno, Langston Hughes, Alfredo Lozano, Antonio Prohias, Pauline and Frank Rebajes, Baruj Salinas, José Gomez Sicre, Adja Yunkers, and others. Most of the correspondence concerns Riverón's exhibitions.
Writings (1969-1985) are primarily Riverón's recollections of his trips to Paris and Madrid, and of the people he met in Latin America, Europe, and the U.S., among them Josephine Baker, Langston Hughes, Federico Garcia Lorca, Kiki de Montparnasse, Mario Moreno (Cantinflas), Pablo Picasso, and Walter Pidgeon. There are also poetry, notes on art and film projects, childhood recollections, and scattered diary entries (1929-1960), including an entry about his father's visit from Cuba in 1947.
Printed material (1918-1991) consists of exhibition announcements and catalogs, clippings, and magazines such as Bally-Hoo and Cine Mundial featuring his caricatures. Scrapbooks (1920s-1990s) contain clippings, printed cartoons and illustrations; and reviews of exhibitions from U.S. and Latin American newspapers.
Photographs (1918-1990) are of Riveron, his wife Noella, art work, artists, actors, musicians, and others, including Cundo Bermudez, Mario Carreño, Xavier Cugat, Ray Milland, Mario Moreno (Cantinflas), Pablo Neruda, Jose Clemente Orozco, Amelia Peláez, Alma Reed, Rosalind Russell, Juan José Sicre, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Rufino Tamayo, and Luis Gomez Waguemert.
