Slides, writings, printed material, and letters from the early 1960s document Goldsmith's association with Allan Kaprow and his "Happenings." Included are slides of the Happening (part of the Yam Festival) at George Segal's farm, South Brunswick, N.J., held May 19, 1963, to which Goldsmith had been invited, including images of Kaprow, Jim Dine, Yvonne Rainer, Dick Higgins, and La Monte Young. Printed material consists of clippings on Happenings by Kaprow, directions to Segal's farm, a mimeographed explanation of Happenings by Kaprow, and a handbill for "Eat," a happening in the Bronx, January, 1963. Writings consist of a typescript of Kaprow's "Pop Art," 1963 given at the Jewish Museum, a handwritten manuscript of the talk, and a script for a Happening called "Calling" enacted by Kaprow in August, 1965. Correspondence is with Jean Lipman (then editor of Art in America) and Harvey Shapiro (of the Sunday New York Times), both of whom turned down Kaprow's lecture.
