Family Correspondence

Collection Artist:
Cornell, Joseph  Search this
Extent:
1.5 Linear feet (Boxes 6-8)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1907-1973
Scope and Contents:
Family correspondence is to and from Cornell, and is with sisters, Elizabeth (Betty) Cornell Benton ("Nell") and Helen Cornell Jagger ("Sissy"); mother, Helen Storms Cornell; and brother, Robert Cornell ("Snick" or "Snicky"). Some of the letters from Cornell's mother have been transcribed and typed, probably by Elizabeth Cornell Benton. In letters sent by Cornell, he often reminisces about activities of his day, or about memories long past. He occasionally refers to films, plays, and music he's being entertained by, and to boxes and collages he's spending his time working on. After Robert's death in 1965, Cornell spends much time mourning Robert through his letters and diary notes. Letters from Cornell's sisters, nieces, and nephews often recount their days, and occasionally sort out the logistics of picking up and storing some of his boxes. There are also references to moving Cornell's mother and brother, as well as time spent by Cornell with his sisters. Files of correspondence with his mother include a postcard of Emily Dickinson's house in Amherst, Massachusetts, sent to him in 1951. Between 1965, when his mother moved out of the Utopia Parkway house to stay with Betty Benton in Westhampton, and her death in 1966, correspondence with his mother increases, often including newspaper clippings and letters referencing how much she misses being "at home."
Arrangement:
Many files were previously grouped into "To Joseph Cornell" and "From Joseph Cornell" by Elizabeth Cornell Benton, prior to donation.
