Description
Records document the William and Noma Copley Foundation's grant program for composers and artists, 1954-1966. Richard Hamilton's correspondence, 1960-1966, largely concerns the Foundation's monograph series, which he edited. Other papers, including correspondence with artists, files regarding exhibitions and insurance, and photographs, document the Copleys' personal art collection, known for its large number of Surrealist works. Files dated after 1966 primarily contain Noma Copley's correspondence with artists.
