Arrangement

Materials were received from Tomkins in distinct groups of correspondence, major writings, other writings, books, and audio recordings. This organization was preserved in the series structure. That division was less distinct in more recent files so processing required some minor rearrangement of folders. Files in Series I, II, and III are in chronological order as they were found. Series II and III files have been rearranged slightly to correct the found chronological order. Files in Series IV were arranged as found. Usually the book files were arranged in two loose groups, one corresponding to the chapter structure of the book and one in a more thematic grouping. Particulars have been noted in the content notes for those subseries. The audio recordings of Series V were in no discernible order and so were filed chronologically to mirror the writing and research files they are associated with.
The five series are as follows:
Series I: Correspondence 1961-2006
Series II: Major New Yorker Articles 1961-2006
Subseries II.A: Research Files 1961-2006

Subseries IV.C: Off the Wall 1963-1991
Subseries IV.D: Duchamp: A Biography 1953-1998
Subseries IV.E: Book Photographs
Series V: Audio Recordings 1962-2006


Biographical Note

Calvin Tomkins was born December 17, 1925, in Orange, NJ. He received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University in 1948 and entered into a career in journalism, working first with Radio Free Europe from 1953 to 1957 and then, as a writer and editor, for Newsweek from 1957 to 1961. His first contributions to The New Yorker were published in 1958 and in 1961 he became a regular staff writer while only occasionally writing for other outlets. In 1980, in addition to continuing his longer pieces for the magazine, Tomkins was appointed the official art critic and wrote art reviews and other content on an almost weekly basis. That position terminated in 1986 but Tomkins continued as a staff writer at The New Yorker until the present.

Tomkins' initial contributions to The New Yorker were short humor pieces (now known under the rubric Shouts and Murmurs.) He contributed six of these pieces between 1958 and 1960 before publishing his first Profile, on Jean Tinguely, in 1962. Tomkins' career at the magazine coincided with a new burgeoning of talent in the New York art world and his first two decades of writing traced the origins and rise to establishment of Pop Art, Earth Art, Minimalism, Video Art, Happenings and Installation Art; as well as profiling the curators, collectors, and gallery owners who helped popularize those artists and movements. Tomkins continued publishing longer articles two or three times a year interspersed with light humor pieces, The Talk of the Town articles and other shorter pieces, through 1980, when he became official art critic for the magazine.

For more than five years Tomkins published art reviews on an almost weekly basis. The frequency of his major articles dropped during this time but did not cease. During his time as critic Tomkins was able to witness and chronicle the astonishing growth of the art market, the development of SoHo as a center of art and commerce, the revitalization of painting, and a host of new art movements. After this position ended, he resumed his former production of larger articles. During this time, The New Yorker itself changed, including more photographs and pictures, often as full- or double-page spreads. Tomkins often wrote paragraphs and captions to accompany these images; in many cases the writings were unattributed in the publication.

In recent years, Tomkins' pace of article publication may have slowed, but he continues to regularly contribute to The New Yorker; his most recent articles appeared in 2007.

Tomkins' first published book was Intermission: A Novel (New York: Viking Press, 1951), but his ensuing books flowed directly from his work at The New Yorker. The Lewis and Clark Trail (New York: Harper & Row, 1965) was written at the same time that Tomkins participated in an NBC documentary on the subject; an article concerning Lewis and Clark appeared in The New Yorker in 1966. Also in 1966, Time-Life published a volume by Tomkins in its series Time-Life Library of Art; The World of Marcel Duchamp (Time, Inc.: New York, 1966) drew on interviews and materials gathered for Tomkins' 1965 Profile. Eric Hoffer: An American Odyssey (New York: Dutton, 1969) was likewise an expansion of a 1967 Profile on the famed autodidact and philosopher. In 1968, Tomkins was contracted by The Metropolitan Museum of Art to write a history of that institution coincident with its centennial. Merchants and Masterpieces: The Story of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York: E.P. Dutton, 1970) to this day remains a key reference work for the museum. Finally, Living Well is the Best Revenge (New York: Viking Press, 1971), a book on Gerald and Sara Murphy and the American Expatriate community in France between the world wars, was enlarged from a Profile of the same name published in 1962. It has proven to be Tomkins' most popular and enduring work, reprinted numerous times and published in a Modern Library edition in 1998.

During this same period, the first book that reprinted and collected Tomkins' articles from The New Yorker appeared. The Bride and the Bachelors: The Heretical Courtship in Modern Art (New York: Viking, 1965) reprinted Profiles on Marcel Duchamp, Jean Tinguely, John Cage and Robert Rauschenberg; later editions also included a fifth Profile on Merce Cunningham. In 1976, The Scene: Reports on Post-Modern Art, (New York: Viking Press, 1976) reprinted articles on Andy Warhol, E.A.T., Henry Geldzahler, Tatyana Grossman, Earth Art, Jonas Mekas, Nam Jun Paik, and Robert Wilson. In 1980, Tomkins published Off the Wall: Robert Rauschenberg and the Art World of Our Time (New York: Doubleday, 1980). While the book centered on the career of Rauschenberg, it also depicted the activities of the New York art community in the 1960s and 1970s and drew heavily on all of Tomkins' research, interviews, and writings of the preceding twenty years. In 1988, Post- to Neo-: The Art World of the 1980's (New York, Henry Holt, 1988) included reprints of twenty-seven Art World reviews and one Profile originally published between 1980 and 1986.

Aside from major books and collections of articles, Tomkins also contributed original or reprinted essays to artists' monographs and co-wrote books with his spouses. Monographs include Andy Warhol by John Coplans, (Greenwich, CT: New York Graphic Society,1970); Christo: Running Fence, with David Bourdon (New York: Abrams, 1979); Jennifer Bartlett, with Marge Goldwater and Roberta Smith (Minneapolis, MN: Walker Art Center, 1985); and Roy Lichtenstein: Mural with Blue Brushstroke, with Bob Adelman (New York: Abrams, 1987). With Judy Tomkins, he wrote The Other Hampton (New York: Viking-Grossman, 1974) and with Dodie Kazanjian, Alex: The Life of Alexander Liberman (New York: Knopf, 1993). In 2001, Tomkins contributed an original essay on R. Buckminster Fuller to Buckminster Fuller: Anthology for the New Millennium, Thomas T.K. Zung ed., (New York: St. Martin's Press, 2001).

Tomkins had developed a long friendship with R. Buckminster Fuller beginning when Tomkins wrote his 1966 Profile on the scientist and inventor. For years, plans were discussed for Tomkins to write a biography of Fuller and in 1980 a contract for the book was signed with Doubleday. In 1984, after numerous extensions, the project was abandoned. Three years later, Tomkins chose as his next project a biography of Marcel Duchamp and Duchamp: A Biography was published in 1996 by Henry Holt. It is his most recent major work and a capstone to a decades-long fascination with the artist.

Calvin Tomkins has been married four times: to Grace Lloyd Tomkins, to Judy Tomkins, to Susan Cheever, and finally to Dodie Kazanjian. Tomkins has three children by his first wife: Anne, Susan, and Spencer; and a daughter, Sarah, by Susan Cheever. Calvin Tomkins currently resides in New York and continues writing.


Scope and Content

The Calvin Tomkins Papers document multiple aspects of the author's life and work including his social and personal life and his long professional writing career. The records begin in 1962 after Tomkins was hired as a full-time staff writer for The New Yorker. No records of his prior work are extant, nor does this collection contain any record of Tomkins' youth or college years. And while the documentation of Tomkins' major articles is comprehensive, there are no files for any of the shorter articles or fiction and humor pieces he wrote for The New Yorker until 1980 when the records present begin to document his entire output, including the unattributed captions for images and other squibs.

Otherwise, Tomkins' life and activity are well captured here. Series I, Tomkins' correspondence, begins in 1964. Professional correspondence includes regular material received from The New Yorker. There is correspondence here from Tomkins' long-time agent, Robert Lescher, and his later agent, Andrew Wylie. Tomkins' most frequent publisher was Doubleday and there is material present from his editor, Kate Medina. There are some contracts present as well.

Beginning in 1969 the files contain an increasing amount of personal correspondence. Tomkins received letters from his children and his ex-spouses as well as an extended network of aunts and uncles and other family members. The series contains large quantities of correspondence from friends and acquaintances. Numerous friends seemed to have carried on decades-long epistolary relationships with Tomkins. Many of these were people he first met through his writing and work.

Series II represents materials produced and acquired for the writing of major articles for The New Yorker between 1962 and 2007. While the majority of these articles were published under the rubric "Profiles," articles were also published under other departmental names. The materials in each folder are consistent and Tomkins grouped these folders separately from those of his other writings.

Tomkins organized these materials into two groups. In Subseries II.A, the materials include news clippings, magazine articles, gallery and exhibition catalogs and ephemera, correspondence with the article subject(s) and correspondence from readers. Handwritten research notes are scattered throughout, mostly consisting of lists of interview contacts and biographical and interview notes. Additionally, most files include tear sheets of the published article and a typescript draft of the article with hand edits and amendments.

Subseries II.B comprises the research and interview binders that Tomkins prepared for nearly every major article. The binders are composed of tabbed and paginated sections including contact lists of interviewees and additional resources, occasional topical indexes, chronologies and other biographical summaries, and interviews with the subject followed by interviews with other people. Complete or partial transcripts of interviews are rare and occur more frequently in later binders. Most often, Tomkins would summarize the content of interviews interspersed with extended direct quotes from the subjects. Tomkins also occasionally recorded thoughts and observations on his journey or visit to the interviewees; these notes are referred to as the "log." Final materials in the binders include bibliographies, extracts from published material such as reviews and news clippings, and miscellaneous items.

Series III is composed of reviews and smaller pieces of writing Tomkins wrote for The New Yorker between 1980 and 2004. These pieces were published under various rubrics; the most common department represented here is "The Art World," used for reviews and commentary about the arts. Other departments include "The Talk of the Town," "Portfolio," "At the Galleries," "Artist's Easel," "Books," and others. Frequently, these pieces were not whole articles but sidebars or captions to full-page photographs or double-page picture spreads. Tomkins also wrote occasional pieces for other publications including essays for books (such as exhibition and auction catalogs and artist monographs) and contributions to seminars and conferences, some of those materials are represented here. The materials present in this series are generally of the same composition and character as those in Series II.A, including news clippings, exhibition material, handwritten and typescript notes, interview summaries and quotes, contact lists, chronologies, and some received correspondence. Many folders include a typescript draft of the article and almost every article has a tear sheet of the published article or a photocopy of a galley proof.

Series IV addresses Tomkins' book publishing and contains material primarily from 1968 to 1996. The book, Eric Hoffer: an American Odyssey (New York: Dutton, 1968), is represented by only one file, as it was largely an expansion of the original article. Material on the other three books is much more comprehensive. Merchants and Masterpieces: The Story of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York: Dutton, 1970) required extensive access to the archives of the museum as well as historical research. Consequently, there are some century-old materials here (mainly news clippings and small publications) and copies of internal museum documents. The files also contain copious photocopies of external museum documents including bulletin articles, book chapters and other material, handwritten and typewritten notes, and research materials and resources gathered after original publication, in many cases used for additions included in the 1989 reprint of the book.

The files for Off the Wall: Robert Rauschenberg and the Art World of Our Time (New York: Doubleday, 1980) contain extensive interview notes and quotations, most culled from research conducted by Tomkins when writing articles for The New Yorker during the preceding two decades. There are scattered news clippings, magazine articles, press releases, ephemera, and other published material. No portions of the manuscript in draft or galley form are present. Material also exists here, dispersed throughout these folders, that was gathered for Tomkins' original Profile on Rauschenberg, "Moving Out," published in 1964.

The research files for Duchamp: A Biography (New York: Henry Holt, 1996) are more extensive than for any of Tomkins' other books. There are large quantities of photocopies or hand transcriptions and translations of significant original documents pertaining to Duchamp and his social circle. The files also contain extensive correspondence with other Duchamp scholars and Duchamp's surviving family, including his widow, Alexina "Teeny" Duchamp and Jacqueline Matisse Monnier. As with the other book files, there is also an extensive presence of published materials and ephemera.

The collection contains no files for The Lewis and Clark Trail (New York: Harper & Row, 1965) or The World of Marcel Duchamp (Time, Inc.: New York, 1966), although files for the latter book may have been integrated into the records of the later biography. Neither are any files present for any of the reprint collections. Research and record files for Living Well is the Best Revenge (New York: Viking Press, 1971) do exist but were withheld by Tomkins and remain in the author's possession. Finally, any extant files for the contributions to books by other authors are filed in Series III, in their original order, as Tomkins organized them.

Subseries IV.E contains a large quantity of photographs collected and used in the books on Rauschenberg, Duchamp, and Gerald and Sara Murphy, though many additional photographs can be found in the preceding series. Most photographs are duplicate prints received from photographers or owners of the images and the book files contain numerous folders of the correspondence and negotiations for rights and permissions necessary to publish the images.

Finally, Series V is composed of 494 audio cassettes and four open reel tapes, all the extant audio recordings made by Tomkins during the course of his research and writing. Tomkins did not start regularly taping his interviews until well into the 1980s but was prescient in preserving the spoken words of Jean Tinguely (1962), Marcel Duchamp (1964) and R. Buckminster Fuller (1965). The next recordings in the collection date from 1988 and by 1990 Tomkins was recording most, if not all, of his interviews up until the present. Regardless of whether Tomkins recorded his interviews or not, there is no change in the nature or composition of materials in the research files. The audio recordings are perhaps the most important primary source material to be found in the Tomkins Papers and will remain key original testaments to the activities and careers of many of the most important art world luminaries of the last five decades.

Related Material

Further materials relating to the subjects of many of Tomkins' writings may be found throughout other collections in the Museum Archives. Tomkins' books and back issues of The New Yorker can be found in the Museum Library.

The Archives of American Art holds the Dodie Kazanjian Papers which contain contributions by Tomkins.


Separated Material

Five folders of material originally located in Series III contained research materials for articles officially attributed solely to Dodie Kazanjian. Tomkins and Kazanjian rarely shared authorship of works although after their marriage they worked closely together on the research and interviews for articles. Because of Kazanjian's sole attribution, these articles have been transferred to the Archives of American Art to be included in the Dodie Kazanjian Papers. These files compose Kazanjian's complete contribution to The New Yorker up to the date of processing.

Provenance

The collection was given to the Museum Archives by Calvin Tomkins in 2004. Additional accruals to the collection were received in 2005 and 2007.

Processing and Condition Information

The processing of the Calvin Tomkins Papers was funded by a generous grant from The Henry Luce Foundation.

The materials in the Calvin Tomkins Papers are largely of recent origin, in good condition, and physically stable. Processing the materials primarily involved removing paperclips and staples, flattening materials, and rehousing them in archival boxes and acid-free folders. Acidic published materials such as newspapers were photocopied and the originals discarded. If acidic materials were deemed to be of particular value they were isolated with acid-free paper or Mylar sleeves. Photographs, transparencies, and negatives were rehoused, individually or in groups, in Mylar sleeves. Facsimiles printed on thermographic paper were photocopied and discarded.

Accruals

Since the original donation of the collection to The Museum in 2004, Tomkins has continued to donate more current materials up through 2007. These files have been added to each series without particular note.

Container List

 

Series I: Correspondence 1964-2006

This series was received from Tomkins arranged in folders according to year. The folders were all marked variously as "Contracts-Correspondence", "Correspondence", "Contracts-Publisher", followed by a year; some folders were marked just with a year. Professional correspondence from The New Yorker is slight. Tomkins received annual letters updating the system of fees and earnings for Profiles and other articles Tomkins produced; many of these came with a cover note signed by William Shawn and it is unclear whether these constituted official contracts. Tomkins also regularly received copies of responses to requests for reproduction and quotation received by The New Yorker. The magazine occasionally forwarded fan mail, excerpted or whole, and there is occasional correspondence from the magazine regarding pension funds and other payments. There are also some letters from fellow writers at the magazine, mainly Roger Angell, and mainly in response to Tomkins' writings or of a purely social nature.

As to other professional correspondence, until the early 1980s, Tomkins' literary agent was Robert Lescher, of the firm Lescher & Lescher. Frequent correspondence from him includes updates and news of reprinting titles, paperback rights, foreign translations, and letters concerning concepts for new books. Tomkins most frequent publishing house was Doubleday and there is scattered correspondence here from their editor Kate Medina. Following Lescher's termination, Tomkins' agent was Andrew Wylie, of the Wylie Agency. Very little correspondence from him is present. Relatively few contracts are extant; those present include contracts for the NBC television documentary "The Journals of Lewis and Clark", the biography Eric Hoffer: An American Odyssey, and the books Merchants and Masterpieces and Living Well is the Best Revenge.

As to other professional activities, Tomkins was a long-time member of the Century Club; there is frequent correspondence here from other members. Most commonly the letters are requests to second the nominations of individuals for membership and to write recommendations for them. Tomkins also served for years on the board of directors of the Merce Cunningham Dance Foundation. Apart from annual updates from the director, Tomkins was somewhat active in fundraising for the Foundation. Notes and letters here testify to those activities. Merce Cunningham also wrote occasional letters to Tomkins recounting the latest doings of the troupe.

A large percentage of material is unsolicited mail from readers (essentially fan mail.) Tomkins also received ongoing unsolicited mail from artists and writers seeking to find outlet and support for their work; journal and book editors and publishers suggesting book or article topics, or inviting Tomkins to produce work for them. He received many invitations to give lectures, participate in seminars, to act as judge in various contests or to contribute in other ways to cultural causes and events. Other correspondence includes occasional inquiries from researchers to examine Tomkins' files, requests from students for interviews and requests for confidential recommendation letters by the MacArthur Foundation.

Beginning in 1969 the files contain an increasing amount of personal correspondence. Tomkins received frequent letters from his two daughters, Anne (Trippy) Tomkins and Susan (Sue) Tomkins, and son, Spencer. The only correspondence from his first and second wives, Pat and Judy Tomkins, comes from periods following the demise of those relationships. Other family members, or long-time family friends, found in the correspondence files include his brother Frederick Tomkins, Jr., aunt and uncle Anne and T. Meade Baker, Laura Barclay, Roy C. Barker, and others.

Other significant personal correspondents include Clare L. Spark, Kazuko Oshima, Nancy Rosen, Janie C. Lee, Lynn Hershman, Nancy Gillespie, Ren Weschler, Dona Guimaraes, Michael Neff, Robert Snyder, Grace Knowlton, Mary Allen, Ted Summer, Lucy Gray, and Sylvia and Edmund Morris, among others. Many of these people were fellow writers or artists and some were involved with Tomkins professionally. There are occasional notes and letters from people Tomkins wrote about or grew acquainted with during his work. These include Honoria Donnelly, Rosamond Bernier, Fanny Brennan, Christo and Jean-Claude, Michael Murphy (of the Esalen Institute), Siah Armajani, Victor and Sally Ganz, Philip Johnson, Paul and Julia Child, Hazel and Paul Strand, Jean and Dominique de Menil, and others. Few of these letters concern the actual research for the articles or seriously discuss Tomkins' work. Evidence also suggests that Tomkins developed a close acquaintance with R. Buckminster Fuller and planned to write Fuller's biography.

Within each folder, materials are in loose reverse chronological order as Tomkins filed them. Typically the earliest materials for each year are letters received in mid-December of the previous year. It seems that a new folder was begun upon receipt of a new contract from The New Yorker.

The folder descriptions below are not complete itemizations, but only highlight select items of significance.

Series II: Major New Yorker Articles 1961-2006

Tomkins segregated the files for his major articles apart from his other writing files. They were kept in rough chronological order; that order has been refined here. The files were split into two parts. Subseries II.A contains the research files of loose notes, published materials, correspondence, and ephemera relating to the subject. Subseries II.B contains the research binders of original material and interview notes and transcripts Tomkins assembled for nearly every article. More detailed descriptions of the contents are below.

 

Subseries II.A: Research Files 1961-2006

These files represent materials produced and acquired for the writing of major articles for The New Yorker magazine between 1962 and 2004. While the majority of these articles were published under the rubric "Profiles," there are articles published under other departments, including "A Reporter at Large," "Annals of Law," "Onward and Upward with the Arts," "The Skyline," and "Department of Education." Which department an article was published under seems to have been a decision reached after the article was written; many articles, such as the one on Frank Gehry, were labeled as Profiles in manuscript form but published as another department. While most Profiles concern individuals there is one, "The Black People of Bridgehampton," that concerns a community. Many of the articles published as "Onward and Upward…" concern individuals and seem no different in content than Profiles. There is evidence in these files of the growth and change of articles from their initial conception. "Irises," an article on the meteoric growth of the art market at auction, began as a Profile of David Nash while the article on dyslexia, "The Last Skill Acquired," apparently went through many changes of focus on its way to publication. But the articles resemble each other in their length and in the research process Tomkins used to write them.

The materials in these folders are weighted toward previously published materials. They include extensive news clippings, magazine articles, tear sheets, offprints and photocopies, pamphlets, brochures, gallery and exhibition catalogs and ephemera. Almost every group of folders for an article includes tear sheets or photocopies of the printed article from The New Yorker. Many folders also contain materials postdating publication. Most often these are news clippings and articles such as obituaries. Original materials include correspondence with the article subjects, both prior to and after publication, and correspondence from readers, many of which dispute facts in the articles; the latter are often accompanied by official magazine responses. Overall the correspondence present in this series is more substantive and relevant to Tomkins' research than that present in the previous series. Handwritten research notes are scattered throughout, mostly consisting of lists of interview contacts and biographical and interview notes. Most of the folder groups also include a typescript draft of the article with hand edits and amendments; the date of these drafts is noted when present. The hand edits are minimal and are likely from copy editors at the magazine although there is evidence that some interview subjects reviewed the articles before publication. A few folders contain multiple typescript drafts of different dates.

While the contents of the separately organized research binders are discussed below, some of their contents have filtered into these folders or are duplicated here. Such materials include interview transcripts, summaries and glosses, notes of time spent with the interview subjects (often referred to as the "log"), and index pages for the binders. These materials are described more fully in the next series.

These files represent all the major articles Tomkins wrote at The New Yorker with a few exceptions. Materials gathered for the Profiles on Robert Rauschenberg and Marcel Duchamp are scant and are likely to have been moved to the research files for the books on those subjects. The research materials for Living Well is the Best Revenge, a book on Sara and Gerald Murphy, have been withheld by Tomkins; the research materials for the Profile that led to the book are likewise absent.

Folders are organized in chronological order by date of article publication. The length of time between the start of research and publication varied from three months to two or more years. Within the folders, material has been left in original order. Newsprint has been photocopied and discarded, acidic and fragile materials have been isolated, and extant photographs and slides have been given special housing. The few computer disks that are present were left in the folders but their contents were printed out (in all cases the disks only contained drafts of the articles sent to, or returned by, the magazine.) Original folder titles have been noted where they differ from the article subject and the folders themselves photocopied when information was inscribed on them.

The folder titles below list the department under which the article was published, the article title, and the general subject. The date noted in the right-most column is the date of article publication, not the date of the research materials.

Subseries II.B: Research and Interview Binders 1963-2006

Much more than the research folders, the research and interview binders consist of original material generated by Tomkins and used in the composition of his major articles for The New Yorker. The binders are all organized in a similar fashion and are mostly composed of typescript pages, tabbed and paginated sections, and page headers. Contact lists of interviewees and additional resources are usually first. If an index exists it is also at front. Often the binders have chronologies and other biographical summaries at the front as well. The second major section is interviews with the major article subject followed by interviews with other people. Complete or partial transcripts of interviews are rare and occur more frequently in later binders. Most often, Tomkins (and later Kazanjian) would summarize the content of interviews interspersed with extended direct quotes from the subjects. Included in these pages are observations by the author on the setting of the interview and descriptions of the subjects and their attitude or composure. Tomkins also occasionally recorded thoughts and observations on his journey or visit to the interviewees; these notes are referred to as the "log." Supporting and secondary interviews follow the format of the main interviews and are typically arranged alphabetically by last name. "Off the record" comments are distinctly labeled; in many cases it is noted that entire interviews are off the record though specific quotes from those interviews may later be approved for publication. Final materials in the binders include bibliographies, extracts from published material such as reviews and news clippings, and miscellaneous items. In those instances when loose material is present it has been noted. Many of the binders included tear sheets or photocopies of the published articles; those have been removed to the research files.

There are fewer binders than research folders. Materials from the binder on the Marcel Duchamp Profile are likely to be in the research files for the book on that subject as a binder is not present here. The interview and research binders have been organized chronologically according to the article's publication date. Materials have been removed from the binders and placed in archival folders. Tabbed dividers have been retained. In some cases the binder was divided into two or more folders due to size. The materials are all in good condition with little or no fragile materials. The folder title shows the department the article was published under, the article title, and the general subject. The right-most column displays the date of publication.

Research files in the previous series should be consulted for additional material originally prepared for or included in these binders.

Series III: Art World Reviews and Other Writings 1970-2006

Throughout his career with The New Yorker, Tomkins wrote occasional pieces for other publications including essays for books (such as exhibition and auction catalogs and artist monographs) and contributions to seminars and conferences. Included here are pieces on Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein and Buckminster Fuller. But the following series comprises mostly reviews and smaller pieces of writing Tomkins composed for The New Yorker between 1980 and 2004. These pieces were published under various rubrics; the most common department represented here is "The Art World," used for reviews and commentary about the arts. Other departments present include "The Talk of the Town," "Portfolio," "At the Galleries," "Artist's Easel," "Books," and others. Frequently, these pieces were not whole articles but sidebars or captions to full-page photographs or double-page picture spreads. The folder descriptions below record when these texts were given department titles and attributions; otherwise, the folder descriptions identify the pieces simply as "Captions." There are also files here of two articles written for the magazine but never published.

Tomkins began writing short pieces for the magazine in 1958, four years before his first published Profile. However, the first short pieces in this series originate only from 1980, the year Tomkins was appointed official art critic of the magazine. Short pieces other than The Art World are not consistently represented in this collection until after 1987.

The materials in this series are generally of the same composition and character as the research files for major articles. Standard material appearing in a majority of the folders includes magazine and newspaper articles and clippings, gallery and exhibition catalogs and ephemera, press releases, newsletters, and other published material. Manuscript material includes handwritten and typescript notes, interview summaries and quotes, contact lists, chronologies, and some received correspondence. Some material post-dating the article's publication is occasionally present. Many folders include a typescript draft of the article and almost every article has a tear sheet of the published article or a photocopy of a galley proof.

Material has been preserved in its original chronological order, though errors and aberrations have been corrected. Because of their recent origin, most materials are in excellent physical condition. Newspaper has been photocopied and discarded and other acidic materials have been isolated. The folder title shows the department the article was published under, the article title, and the general subject. The right-most column displays the date of publication.

Series IV: Books 1968-1998

This series comprises material gathered and created for the various original books Tomkins published throughout his career. Many of the books began their life as articles in The New Yorker or drew heavily on research conducted in the course of that writing. Specific descriptions of materials for each book follow below.

 

Subseries IV.A: Eric Hoffer: an American Odyssey

Eric Hoffer: an American Odyssey (New York: Dutton, 1968) was an expansion of the Profile Tomkins wrote for The New Yorker published in January, 1967. The one file in this subseries was found among the files for the article and moved here. But other materials concerning this book can be found elsewhere in the collection. The book contract can be found in folder I.5 among Tomkins' correspondence and materials from the original article can be found in folders II.A.20, II.A.21 and II.B.7. Correspondence with Hoffer, most regarding the article and following book, can be found in numerous folders of Series I.

Folder Title Date
IV.A.1 Eric Hoffer

Subseries IV.B: Merchants and Masterpieces 1860-1989

Tomkins was contacted by The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1968 to write the history of the institution coincident with their centennial celebrations, and Merchants and Masterpieces: The Story of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York: Dutton) appeared in 1970. The first twenty-four folders in this subseries are in order of the book chapters to which they pertain and concern succeeding eras of the museum's history and key trustees, directors and curators. Materials include copious photocopies of museum documents such as letters and manuscript material from the museum archives as well as copies of museum bulletin articles, book chapters and other published material. Large quantities of handwritten and typewritten notes are present as well. Folders 25-33 contain correspondence concerning the book, financial summaries of gifts and acquisitions by the museum, and the contents of a series of binders dedicated, respectively, to trustees and benefactors, curatorial departments, and presidents, directors, and staff of the museum. Two additional folders contain photographs used in the book and pamphlets and gallery guides from across the museum's history. Folders 34-47 are research materials and resources gathered after original publication, in many cases used for additions included in the 1989 reprint by Henry Holt. In these last files there is a particular focus on the "scandals" of the museum in the 1970s and Thomas Hoving's tenure as director

For correspondence regarding initial discussions and the eventual contract for the book see folders I.4-I.6

Subseries IV.C: Off the Wall 1963-1991

In many ways, Off the Wall: Robert Rauschenberg and the Art World of Our Time (New York: Doubleday, 1980), summarizes and organizes all the writing on modern and contemporary art Tomkins had published to that moment. Scattered throughout these folders are interview notes and partial transcripts from twenty years of The New Yorker articles. The first group of files, 1-47, is in rough chronological order by topic, event and period of Rauschenberg's life. These files mostly comprise those extensive interview notes and quotations. Most of the interviews are labeled with name and date and are copies of materials found in the files of the original articles. There are scattered news clippings, magazine articles, press releases, ephemera, and other published material. Many folders have been photocopied to preserve extensive label information and cross reference notes or when labels were illegible. Folders 48-61 duplicate some of the topics and materials from the earlier folders and also include material gathered after the book's publication. Apart from the small amount of material found in folder 55 (acknowledgements, endnotes, and photograph captions,) no portions of the manuscript in draft or galley form are present. Likewise, although material exists here that was gathered for Tomkins' original Profile on Rauschenberg, "Moving Out," 2/29/1964, no manuscript of that article is present and it is likely that materials gathered for that article were thoroughly dispersed throughout these folders.

For the original research binder assembled for the Rauschenberg Profile, see folder II.B.4; for photographs used in the book, see Series IV.E.

Subseries IV.D: Duchamp: A Biography 1953-1998

Tomkins' biography of Duchamp, titled Duchamp: A Biography (New York: Henry Holt, 1996) required more historical research than any of his previous books. There are large quantities of photocopies, hand transcriptions, and translations of significant original documents (such as correspondence and personal journals) pertaining to Duchamp and his social circle. Much of this archival material was viewed in collections at the Beinecke Library of Yale University, the Archives of American Art, and the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin. The first group of folders, 1-29, is arranged in chronological order by decade, and corresponds to eventual book chapters. Groups of folders are dedicated to published and unpublished interview transcripts with Duchamp, reader responses, photographs and reproduction rights and permissions, post-mortem critical evaluations of Duchamp, and extensive correspondence. Much of the correspondence is with Duchamp's surviving family: his stepdaughter Jacqueline Matisse Monnier and his widow, Alexina "Teeny" Duchamp. Teeny Duchamp was herself able to review Tomkins' book in manuscript form before her death in 1995. There is also extensive correspondence with other Duchamp scholars, particularly Francis Naumann. Finally, there are five bound volumes of photocopies from two collections at the Beinecke Library. They seem to be the complete extent of correspondence between Duchamp, Katherine Dreier, and Katharine Kuh, taken from those women's personal papers. The volumes are in folders IV.D.68-69.

Of particular note in these files are folders IV.D.29 and IV.D.63 that contain complete transcripts of Tomkins' 1964 interviews with Duchamp. Also, see folder I.64 for a copy of a 1997 letter written by Tomkins in which he describes his initial meeting with Duchamp and his ensuing personal interest and relationship with the artist.

Series V: Audio Recordings 1962-2006

The basis of all of Tomkins' major writings for The New Yorker was in-person interviews with his subjects. Therefore, the four open reels and 494 cassette audio recordings contained in this series constitute perhaps the most important original, unique materials of the entire collection. Nonetheless, until the late 1980s, Tomkins did not regularly record his interviews and instead trusted to his note-taking and memory for reconstruction of conversations. Yet the earliest recordings, of Jean Tinguely (1962), Marcel Duchamp (1964), and R. Buckminster Fuller (1965), testify to Tomkins' consciousness of the importance of those individuals. Even as Tomkins recorded the interviews, he rarely made complete transcripts of them, preferring to summarize the interviews in his research binders while quoting only key paragraphs and statements by his subjects. When, in later years, full transcripts do exist, they were usually written by Dodie Kazanjian, who accompanied and aided Tomkins in his research and interviews.

The audio recordings were received loosely grouped by subject and date. They have been rearranged here in strict chronological order. Interviews for different articles may overlap in time. The recordings are inconsistently labeled; many are missing dates, full names (some names have been added in brackets,) or reference to which particular person or article they were recorded for. Most tapes lack any indication also as to how long they are or how much of the tape they take up. Researchers should first consult the interview binders in Series II.B before asking to consult the actual audio recordings. Occasional tapes record interviews for Art World reviews or smaller articles.

The four open reel audio recordings in the collection are various brands and types but all are ¼" width on 7" reels.
