Collection Creator:
Okubo, Miné, 1912-2001  Search this
Extent:
0.8 Linear feet (Box 1)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1957-2001
Scope and Contents:
The bulk of this series consists of letters from Miné Okubo to Gaylord Hall and Roy Leeper. Many of the letters begin by mentioning her mood or health and she often inquires about the health and activities of Hall and Leeper and their mutual friends, although they do not tend to be overly personal. Okubo references her artistic process, specific artworks purchased by or of interest to Hall and Leeper, and acknowledges receipt of payment for a work of art. Many of the letters are illustrated in pen or colored pencil.

There is also one letter from Leeper to Okubo; a letter to Howard Hamilton; and scattered letters between Doris and Harry Tono, Okubo, and Leeper and Hall.
Arrangement:
Some letters greet both Roy Leeper and Gaylord Hall in the letter but are addressed to one on the envelope; those letters are organized based on the addressed envelope.
Collection Restrictions:
Use of original papers requires an appointment and is limited to the Archives' Washington, D.C. Research Center. Contact Reference Services for more information.
