Biography/History

The Craft and Folk Art Museum (still operating at its original location at 5814 Wilshire Blvd.) has been an extraordinarily active institution both in its first incarnation as the commercial folk art and crafts gallery, The Egg and The Eye (1965-1975), and then as the nonprofit museum (1975-1997) that carried on the gallery's interest in contemporary crafts and international folk art, and in the eighties added product design and vernacular architecture to its program. Founded by Edith R. Wyle, it was a showcase for the material culture of the world at a time when there were few ethnically-specific art institutions in Los Angeles. It was a pioneer in the involvement of local cultural communities in the planning and execution of exhibitions of folk art; it was a prestigious venue for the exhibition of the best of contemporary fine craft; and it was one of the first museums to show architectural and furniture prototypes. For almost 20 years, it sponsored a beloved annual event, the Festival of Masks, that involved over 100 local cultural groups in a weekend of festivities: a masked parade, two days of nonstop performances, food, and demonstration booths run by many of the local community organizations. It was the first-and for many years the only--L.A. organization to sponsor this type of multicultural event.
Edith R. Wyle founded The Egg and The Eye in 1965, a commercial folk art and crafts gallery, which evolved into the Craft and Folk Art Museum in 1975. (The museum received its nonprofit status from the IRS in April 1973, but the first exhibitions organized by CAFAM were not mounted until August 1975.) CAFAM carried on the gallery's interest in contemporary crafts and international folk art, and in the eighties added product design and vernacular architecture to its program. The museum was a showcase for the material culture of the world at a time when there were few ethnically-specific art institutions in Los Angeles. CAFAM was known for the involvement of local cultural communities in its planning and execution of exhibitions of folk art, its exhibitions of contemporary fine craft, and for being one of the first museums to show architectural and furniture prototypes. For almost 20 years, it sponsored the annual Festival of Masks, which involved over 100 local cultural groups in a weekend of festivities: a masked parade, two days of nonstop performances, and food and demonstration booths run by many of the local community organizations. It was the first, and for many years the only, Los Angeles organization to sponsor this type of multicultural event.
After closing temporarily at the beginning of 1998 due to financial difficulties, the Museum sold its permanent object collection at auction. It regrouped and reopened in the Spring of 1999 minus its permanent collections, its library (given to the L.A. County Museum of Art Research Library), and its institutional archives (given to the UCLA Library).

Scope and Content

The Craft and Folk Art Museum Records consist of papers, publications, photographs, press clippings and media releases, slides, audiotapes, videotapes, films, memorabilia, and objects. These materials document fully the life of the organization from the opening of its predecessor, The Egg and The Eye Gallery, in 1965 until the temporary closing of the museum at the end of 1997.
Besides administrative, trustee, departmental, and special events files, the most significant series within the archives are those of CAFAM's predecessor, The Egg and The Eye Gallery; Craft and Folk Art Museum Exhibitions; Festival of Masks; the P.E.T. (Preserving Ethnic Traditions) files; the Language of Objects Project files; and the files of the Center for the Study of Art and Culture, an adjunct program of the CAFAM research library, intended to be a fellowship program and "think tank." All exhibitions, festivals, and special events are documented with slides, as well as photographs, audiotapes, videotapes, films, posters, and other memorabilia. The latter includes awards, t-shirts, signage, admission and promotional buttons, etc.

Organization and Arrangement

The CAFAM Records are divided into 21 record groups; each record group is subdivided into a number of series. The record groups correspond roughly to the original order of the files, most of which were created by staff of the various museum departments or coordinators of events. Some record groups are divided by media, e.g., posters, memorabilia, audiovisual materials. There is a good deal of cross-over of subject matter between record groups. For example, although most exhibition materials will be found in Record Group 10 (Exhibitions), some materials related to grant-writing for exhibitions will probably be found in Record Group 3 (Development); some media releases and correspondence related to exhibition publicity will be found in Record Group 4 (Public Relations); and education programs related to exhibitions may be found in Record Group 6 (Education). Some cross-references are provided in the scope notes but if one is looking for files related to a specific event or a particular person, it will always be best to first do a keyword search. Within each series, files are generally in order either alphabetically or chronologically, whichever is most appropriate to the series. A good deal of background information will be found in the ScopeContent notes.

1. The Egg and The Eye Gallery

Scope and Contents note

The Egg and The Eye Gallery, predecessor to the Craft and Folk Art Museum, opened on November 1, 1965. It was a commercial art gallery, showing both contemporary fine craft and international folk art, that included a restaurant specializing in many kinds of omelettes. Founded by Edith R. Wyle and Bette Chase, and assisted initially by investments from about 30 shareholders, it fit perfectly into the eclectic cultural mix of Los Angeles in the sixties. From the outset it was very successful as an arts venue and social center, its restaurant and exhibitions that were unusual for an art gallery attracting people who would often meet at “The Egg” for lunch, stop in at the gallery, and could then visit the L.A. County Museum of Art down the street as well. Both the gallery and its restaurant were noted in national publications, attracting people from outside of Los Angeles. From November 1965 through August 1975, at least 185 exhibitions were mounted at the gallery, between 12 - 27 shows per year, usually with several exhibitions mounted in the same time period. Turnover of exhibitions was frequent. Lectures, workshops, and film series were among the many programs available. A newsletter was published. Omelette-making classes were offered by the restaurant’s first chef, Rodessa Moore, who was a local celebrity. The Egg and The Eye Association was a membership group that supported the gallery and sponsored its own programs. Though it was very popular, the gallery was seldom profitable, and it always had an educational component, so from the start, it operated more like a nonprofit gallery than a commercial one. It was sometime in 1967 that Bette Chase left the partnership. Beginning in 1967, Edith Wyle began the process of establishing a museum or cultural center that would transform the gallery into a nonprofit organization. In 1973, they received their IRS nonprofit designation. It took two years to form a board of trustees and to hire professional staff. The last gallery exhibition opened in June 1975. Series 1.02 (see Box 7) is a group of 10 file folders labeled "Transition to the Craft and Folk Art Museum." For other documents concerning the transition (1967 - 1975), see also five file folders in Series 2.01 (Box 9, folders 13 - 17) labeled “General -- Formative Period.”
 

1.01 Egg and The Eye Gallery 1965-1975

Scope and Contents note

Arranged alphabetically in topical order and chronologically under each topic. Very few of the printed materials from The Egg and The Eye period include notation of the year of the event; therefore, dates on these items are somewhat uncertain, determined sometimes from the associated evidence of The Egg and The Eye newsletter and clippings from other news media. Included here is the Prospectus for The Egg and The Eye Gallery, which was sent to potential shareholders, and various documents related to its activities as a commercial gallery, which continued through the summer of 1975, even though the IRS had granted it nonprofit status in 1973. A total of 185 exhibitions are documented here. It is believed that more exhibitions were held at the Gallery, but the items in this collection are all that have been found to this point. For the records of the restaurant during this period, see Box 6, folders 20 - 21; Box 22, folder 15; Box 479, folders 8 - 9; Box 537, folder 1; and Box 540, folder 1. Gallery exhibition files are arranged chronologically. Dates in date field are opening dates only; see folder scope notes for closing dates, where known. When more than one gallery exhibition opened on the same date, materials for all of them are filed in the same folder. The content note for each exhibition folder lists exhibitions and artists shown during that period. See also Series 4.03 Public Relations Department Record Group – Press Clippings. See also Series 14.05, Audiovisual Materials Record Group -- Photographs Series. Some Egg and The Eye Gallery exhibitions are probably undocumented, but it has been impossible to positively identify or date such exhibitions in lieu of any evidence except for gaps in the calendar. The opening and (where known) closing dates of all of the exhibitions are listed on the front of the file folders. See also Series 1.02, Transition to the Craft and Folk Art Museum, for the period (1972 - 1975) when the museum board was being formed, museum staff was being hired, and active plans were being made for what was at first the "Craft and Folk Art Museum Incorporating the Egg and The Eye."

2.01 CAFAM Administrative Files A-Z 1976 - 1998

Scope and Contents note

These files, which are arranged alphabetically by topic, were artificially created from a number of different sources, primarily a collection of “CAFAM Historical Files” started and maintained in the CAFAM Research Library during Museum Librarian Joan Benedetti’s tenure (1976 – 1997). They include all of the CAFAM publications (except for the exhibition catalogs--see CAFAM Exhibitions Record Group for catalogs), including newsletters produced in-house for staff and volunteers, and many clippings of a general nature. Three legal-size file folders holding extra wide 1991-1993 CAFAM Calendars are in a separate box (Box 18, folders 1 - 3). Minutes and agendas of most staff meetings are in this series.

Biographical material on many persons associated with CAFAM will be found here in a group of files labeled People Associated with CAFAM (Box 15 - Box 16, folders 1 - 9). Also included here are the files of the Contemporary Craft Council, the Folk Art Council, and the Associates. Associates files can be found elsewhere as well, especially in the Associates Files in Series 2.07 (Boxes 51 - 56, folders 1 -10). Volunteer Service Council files can be found in Series 2.09.

Gallery 3 at Santa Monica Place 1980 October 16 - 1981 September 30

Scope and Contents note

Gallery 3 was a gallery and shop of contemporary craft located in Santa Monica Place, the Frank Gehry-designed shopping mall. The opening of the gallery was delayed from October 2 until October 16 because of a fire in the new mall at the Robinson’s Department Store. The mall developers gave the space to CAFAM rent-free, but it was too expensive to maintain. It was occupied by CAFAM for just one year, October 16, 1980 - September 30, 1981. Six exhibitions were mounted in Gallery 3 during that time.

Shop -- general 1975 - 1987

Scope and Contents note

After The Egg and The Eye Gallery became a museum, some of those who had worked primarily in gallery sales became part of the museum shop sales staff. John Browse, who had been Assistant Director of the Gallery, became the Shop Manager. Dorothy Garwood, who had been Contemporary Crafts Buyer for the Gallery became the Contemporary Craft Curator for the museum. Garwood left in November 1975; Browse in March 1976. At that point, Ann Robbins, who had been Browse's Ass't Manager became Shop Manager and Susan Skinner became Ass't Shop Manager. When Robbins resigned in August 1982, John Browse was rehired as Shop Manager; Susan Skinner stayed on as Associate Shop Manager until March 1984. No files originating in the shop were salvaged for the archives; however files regarding shop activities will be found in a number of different places. See Box 23, folder 18 – Box 24, folder 3; Box 415, folder 21; Box 419, folders 6 – 7; and Box 481, folders 20 – 21.

A satellite shop opened next to the gallery in the May Company in January 1992, initially run by Sally Shishmanian, and then by Martin Venzal, but the May Co. closed at the end of 1992 and CAFAM existed without a shop until the museum re-opened in May 1995. Stella Krieger was hired to be the Manager of the new shop in December 1994.

2.02 Edith R. Wyle (ERW) Correspondence ca. 1970 - 1984

Scope and Contents note

Arranged alphabetically by topic. Edith R. Wyle was the co-founder of The Egg and The Eye Gallery (with Bette Chase) and the founder of the Craft and Folk Art Museum. Starting in 1973, she served as the Director and Curator of Folk Art until sometime in 1977 when she began to serve co-equally as Program Director--with Patrick Ela as Administrative Director-- from 1977 - 1984. Wyle retired in late 1984 and then went on the board, taking on the title of Founder and Director Emeritus. Although some documents in this file date to The Egg and The Eye Gallery period and the transition period, they are included here because they were originally filed together in one file. These are Wyle's correspondence files that she left at CAFAM when she retired. Please note that there are four folders of "ERW Writings and Presentations" at the end of this file. Other ERW correspondence will be found in the CAFAM Chronological Files series (Box 38, folder 9 - Box 43, folder 12, in this Record Group). See also Record Group 20, Edith R. Wyle CAFAM Home Files, a group of papers that had been filed at Wyle’s home and were donated by her family after her death (Boxes 422 - 433). Documents and references to ERW will also be found in the CAFAM Board of Trustees Record Group as well as in several folders in the CAFAM Administrative A-Z series labeled “People Associated with CAFAM: Wyle, Edith R” (Box 15, folders 32 - 36 and Box 16, folder 1).

2.04 CAFAM Chronological Files 1983 December - 1993 June

Scope and Contents note

These files are chronological, by month and year. They contain primarily copies of letters and memos sent to people outside of the museum from Patrick Ela and Edith Wyle and their various administrative assistants (Brenda Hurst, Merat Kebede, Isabelle Baertschi, Trisha Tallon-Blanchard, John Lucas, and Denise Wakeman). The “chron files” begin in December 1983 and run through June 1993 except that 1985 and 1987 include only the months of December. It is not known why there are no chronological files for the other months of 1985 and 1987 or for the period before December 1983 or after June 1993. Since the chronological files are copies of letters and memos, there probably are, in most cases, other copies filed elsewhere (e.g., the PHE Correspondence Files series or the CAFAM Administrative Files A-Z Series) by topic. However, in processing these chronological files, it was noticed that they include copies of some correspondence that is probably not in any other file. Quite a few bunches of correspondence were undoubtedly simply misfiled--intended to be filed with the regular correspondence files. Some of these letters include attachments, although the majority of letters in the chronological files do not include copies of the attachments that were included with the original letters. The chronological file also includes some letters and memos from others besides Ela, including Sue Sirkus and Kim Ferguson, who worked in Development; Ian Barrington, Manager of The Egg and The Eye Restaurant; Janet Marcus, Education Curator; and Laurie Beth Kalb, Curator, among others. (Some of the latter persons also have separate departmental files in this archives.) A large part of the subject matter of this file has to do with donations from the Wyles (acknowledgments as well as solicitations), as well as other donors, and correspondence about grants and grant proposals. (For other donor files, see Boxes 238 - 254.) There are a few memos to staff, but mostly these letters are addressed to board members, to donors, and to others outside of the museum. Some financial reports and/or other reports re CAFAM as a whole are included as well as correspondence re particular exhibitions or events (e.g., Festival Primavera) or the Associates, or the Directors Circle.

2.05 Rolodex Files ca. 1975 – ca. 1997

Scope and Contents note

These boxes hold the cards from what were three large Rolodex rotary files used by administrative staff. They are alphabetical by surname of individual or company title. It is not certain when the first cards were made or if these files were current when the museum closed at the end of 1997, but it is known that most of the cards were in use from the mid-70s until the mid-90s. They include the names of most persons that may have been contacted by CAFAM administrative staff over that period of time, not necessarily including members as such. This is not a membership file. In other words, the Rolodex files may include some people associated with CAFAM primarily as members but, by and large, those in the file will have also participated in some other capacity as staff members, board members, council members, Associates members, etc. The file also includes anyone (though not everyone) that Edith Wyle or Patrick Ela or their assistants may have communicated with during that time, including friends, tradespeople, and other vendors.

2.06 New Museum Files 1985 - 1995

Scope and Contents note

This series is arranged alphabetically by topic. The “New Museum” files include materials relating to the planning of two building projects, only one of which was realized. In late summer 1986, Frank Wyle, CAFAM Chairman of the Board, began talking with the developer, Wayne Ratkovich (see also CAFAM Administrative Files A-Z-- People Associated with CAFAM: Ratkovich, Wayne), known for his renovation of historic L.A. properties, about the potential to use the properties then owned by CAFAM at 5814 Wilshire and (around the corner) at 731 South Curson to develop a ”Museum Tower,” a high-rise (22-story) mixed-use condominium development that would include a 55,000 square foot space for CAFAM (to be owned by CAFAM as a condominium) on the lower levels of the high-rise. Richard Weinstein, Dean of Architecture and Urban Planning at UCLA, was named as Chief Designer. Weinstein’s office provided preliminary drawings and a model. Key to this development was the planned acquisition of the 5800 Wilshire property at the corner of Curson and Wilshire. The latter property included a large parking lot south of an alley behind 5800 and 5814 Wilshire. The files regarding the extensive and difficult negotiations with the owners of the 5800 Wilshire property and its parking lot, Joseph Ventress and Lena Longo (or “El Vee”), with whom CAFAM entered into a lease-purchase agreement, are included here. (See also PHE Correspondence Files and CAFAM Administrative Files A-Z -- Facilities, 5800 Wilshire Blvd., in the Administrative Files Record Group.) A widely publicized press conference on May 9, 1989 with a cake in the shape of the tower, and with Mayor Tom Bradley, Councilman John Ferraro, and other dignitaries present, announced the planned project. An agreement with Ratkovich was formalized on October 9, 1989. However, after a broad, international search for capitalization for the Museum Tower, in the face of a difficult recession, Ratkovich and CAFAM agreed in May 1992 that “economic conditions of the times have not been conducive to pursuing the intended development project and have frustrated financing efforts” (from Ratkovich letter of May 8, 1992). In the meantime, soon after the initial agreement with Ratkovich in October 1989, a detailed building program (based on the Ratkovich project) was developed by the CAFAM staff with the help of consultant Marcy Goodwin and an elaborate capital campaign had been initiated. The building program and documents relating to that campaign are included here as well. (See also Development Department Record Group, Box 228, folders 22 - 23 and Box 229, folders 2 - 4.) In 1992 the board decided to go ahead with a reduced version of the building program in a renovation project that would physically join 5814 Wilshire to 5800 Wilshire. At this point, a search for a new architect was begun. Craig Hodgetts and Ming Fung of Hodgetts + Fung were chosen for the new project. A revised design was created by Hodgetts + Fung, merging 5800 and 5814 Wilshire, even though 5800 Wilshire had not yet been purchased by the museum. Van Holland Construction Company, which had assisted with the building-out of the temporary spaces at the May Company Miracle Mile store (at 6067 Wilshire), occupied by CAFAM from 1989 – 1992, as well as the staff offices and library in the leased 5800 Wilshire building, was chosen as the contractor for both the earthquake retrofitting needed for 5814 Wilshire and the Hodgetts + Fung renovation. The re-designed museum opened in May 1995 in a major three-day weekend event billed as a “Homecoming.” The files concerning the gala "Homecoming" celebration are included here.

2.07 Associates Files (including Events and Trips) and CAFAM Membership Trip Files 1977 - 1995

Scope and Contents note

This series is arranged alphabetically by topic and then chronologically within each topic. According to records in the Board of Trustees Record Group, the CAFAM Associates support group (“high-end” members, many of whom were on the board) was founded sometime in 1980 by board member Judith Stark with the support of Mark Gallon. Their principal activity was travel, usually within the U.S. over a long weekend. These trips featured behind-the- scenes tours of museums guided by curators, visits to important private collections, and lavish dinners. These files are not complete, e.g., although there is mention on a list of “Associates out- of-town trips” of trips to India and Santa Fe in 1980 and a “Fiber Arts Tour” to Europe in 1981, the documentation for these trips is missing. There is no record of the Associates’ founding in these files; the earliest Associates documents date to an Associates trip to Vancouver taken in June 1981. Included are the daily journals of trip activities that the participants took turns writing and that were then typed up and distributed to all attendees, as well as a large scrapbook (see Box 536) containing color photographs of some of the trips. Although these out of town trips were the principal Associates activity, the group also held local events, including dinners at prominent L.A. restaurants, lectures, musicales, and short day trips. A portion of the fees charged for all of these activities went to support CAFAM. The last Associates trip was to San Francisco in August 1995. In the early days of CAFAM, several trips were offered to the membership at large. Then, starting in 1981, such trips were offered only to Associates and their guests. Although Associates trips often included non-Associates members, beginning in the early nineties, a series of trips was again planned (in association with Crown Travel) that were advertised to the CAFAM membership at large. Many of these were unrealized. Two especially successful membership trips took place, however: one in 1993 to Costa Rica, led by Deirdre-Evans Pritchard, and one in 1995 to South Africa, led by Patrick Ela. Documentation of some of these trips is sketchy and it is not clear in some cases whether they were sponsored by the Associates group or were for the membership in general. It is also not always clear whether or not some of these trips were actually taken or were cancelled. It is possible that some trips labeled “unrealized” actually took place and vice versa. See also Administrative Files A-Z series, Box 10, folders 14 - 15, and Box 11, folder 1. See also oversized CAFAM Associates scrapbook (Box 536) of color photographs of the following trips: 1983--Atlanta et al.; 1985--Santa Fe; 1986--Seattle; 1987--Kentucky; 1991--Nova Scotia et al.; 1992-- Guadalajara, Mexico; and 1992--Philadelphia.

2.08 Milt Thomas Files 1976 - 1997

Scope and Contents note

These files are alphabetical by topic. They originated with Milt Thomas, who began working as an "executive volunteer" for CAFAM when he retired from Wyle Laboratories, probably sometime in 1989. Thomas had worked at Wyle since 1960. He was a Senior Contracts Administrator at Wyle when he retired. At CAFAM, Thomas took on many tasks related to personnel issues. In fact, in 1991 Patrick Ela announced that Thomas was to be the official “ombudsman” for the museum. He worked with CAFAM librarian Joan Benedetti on three different attempts to create a staff performance appraisal system (not implemented). He worked on revising job descriptions and worked with Michelle Arens on developing an Employee Handbook that was implemented. He also helped to do preliminary research on many projects, e.g., Associates and Membership travel, finding a site for both the staff and board retreats, and locating temporary space for museum staff during the periods when 5814 Wilshire and then 5800 Wilshire had to be vacated. The latter included working with staff on space planning and locating (and sometimes drawing) floor plans. He organized staff trips to Dodger games. When the museum shut down at the end of 1997, he met with all of the staff regarding severance benefits. He and his wife, Gloria Zimmer, went on many Associates trips both before and after he started working with the Museum. Although he was not officially on the CAFAM Board until 1996, he attended most board meetings (1989 - 1998) and served on board committees, such as Program Communications, Development, Capital Campaign, and Executive Finance. Many of the file folder topics in the Thomas files can also be found in other record groups or series, but the individual items are not necessarily duplicated.

2.09 Volunteer Service Council 1977 - 1997

Scope and Contents note

Documents in this series relate to the Volunteer Service Council, established as a legal entity in 1986, as well as activities of previous, informal volunteer groups and coordinators beginning in 1977. Arranged alphabetically by topic. From the beginning, most activities at the museum were dependent on loyal volunteers, who were usually attached to a particular department and trained by the head of that department. Larger events (e.g., the annual Primavera Ball) would utilize volunteers more broadly. Volunteers often had their own programs, which were usually open only to the volunteers and were planned by whoever was the current Volunteer Coordinator. The coordinator position was usually paid on a part-time basis, but some coordinators were unpaid. Volunteer Coordinators included Gail Goldberg, Suzy Ticho, Aileen Colton, Nancy Kendall, Jean Davidson, Lynn Pelletier, and Geri Freer among others (not all names available as of this writing).

2.10 Special Events -- Home Sweet Home: American Vernacular Architecture 1977 - 1984

Scope and Contents note

Arranged roughly in alphabetical order by topic. “Home Sweet Home: American Vernacular Architecture” was a city-wide series of exhibitions and events that was conceived by designer and CAFAM board member Gere Kavanaugh in 1977. The architect, Charles Moore, agreed to co-produce the project and CAFAM applied for and received a $40,000 initial planning grant from the NEA for the project in July 1980. In June 1981 Blaine Mallory was hired to be the Coordinator. She eventually oversaw the development of 12 city-wide exhibitions related to the vernacular architecture theme, which were mounted more or less simultaneously between October 17 - November 11, 1983. A three-day symposium was co-produced by CAFAM and UCLA November 11 -13. A book was published by Rizzoli. CAFAM mounted an exhibition, “The Front Porch,” as part of the city-wide effort. (See CAFAM Exhibitions Record Group for materials related to “The Front Porch.”) The development effort was enormous; Louise Tate was hired as development consultant during 1982. Grants were received for most aspects of the project. (See proposal/scrapbook in Box 533, folder 6.) The P.R. effort was national in scope. Blaine Mallory was involved in all aspects of the project for almost three years.

2.11 Special Events -- Today Shows and Miscellaneous 1977 - 1994

Scope and Contents note

Arranged alphabetically by topic and chronologically within each topic. CAFAM sponsored or coordinated many “special events.” Besides “Home Sweet Home: American Vernacular Architecture,” those that were the largest in scope were part of a series sponsored by a consortium of private and public organizations that had the intention of reaching out to other countries culturally. These were national in scope and CAFAM was the regional coordinator for Japan Today (April-May 1979); Egypt Today (March 20 - April 20, 1981); and Scandinavia Today (February-March 1983). Each of these events required several years of planning and preparation and included CAFAM exhibitions and programs. This series also contains files on several fashion (“Wearable Art”) shows; a Bottle Village fundraiser; and some other miscellaneous special events.

2.12 CAFAM Special Events -- Family Festival of Mexican Arts 1991

Scope and Contents note

Arranged alphabetically by topic. The Family Festival of Mexican Arts, which was produced in Hancock County Park on October 6, 1991, was done in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) as part of a number of city-wide events held in conjunction with the large LACMA exhibition, “Mexico: Splendors of Thirty Centuries,” touring from Mexico. (CAFAM put on an exhibition, “Folk Treasures of Mexico,” of objects from the Nelson Rockefeller Mexican folk art collection at the same time.) Teri Knoll was the Family Festival coordinator for CAFAM. It was similar to the Festival of Masks, except focused on Mexico and Mexican Americans and held on just one day, and it included performers on two stages, workshops and demonstrations, and food booths.

2.13 Controller/Accounting 1975 - 1998

Scope and Contents note

Most of these files--in roughly chronological order--originated with Lorraine Trippett, who was the Accountant and then the Controller from 1977 through mid-1997, when she retired; at that point Sheri Hakimpour Rhodius, who had first been the Bookkeeper (and Trippett's assistant) and then the Accountant, was named CFO (Chief Financial Officer), and some files from late 1997 originated with her. Some additional financial and/or budgetary documents will also be found in the Development Record Group; the files of the directors, Patrick Ela, Nancy Fister, and Paul Kusserow; and the various files of Frank Wyle, some in Development, some in Board of Trustees, and some among the files of the "last months" (1996 – 1998) before the temporary closing of the museum. At the time of the transfer of the archival records from CAFAM to UCLA, some financial records were left behind in a CAFAM storage bin and were never transferred to UCLA.

Arranged alphabetically by topic and then chronologically under each topic. Most of these files originated with the Director, Paul Kusserow, or the Director of Programs, Martha Drexler Lynn, but some other documents are included from (e.g.) Nancy Fister, who was Acting Director before Kusserow's appointment and then served as Director of Development under Kusserow. Kusserow's hire began in January 1997 and he resigned in November 1997. Martha Drexler Lynn was hired in March 1997 and she resigned at the same time as Paul Kusserow.

Scope and Contents note

This cookbook, reprinted in 1997, was going to be used as a promotion in association with the new restaurant, which was unrealized. Although it uses the name of the Egg and The Eye Gallery in the title, it actually had nothing to do with CAFAM or The Egg and The Eye. The only connection is that Jay Rivkin's drawings were shown at the Gallery.

3. Development Department

Scope and Contents note

The CAFAM Development Department was in charge of all forms of fundraising for the museum. As is the case in most museums, fundraising was an essential part of CAFAM’s ongoing existence, although a development department as such was not established at the outset. Mark Gallon (on loan from Mort Winston’s company, Tosco) acted as development director initially. Then Judith Teitelman was hired as Director of Development (1988 - 1989) on a four-days- a-week basis. She laid the groundwork for a full-fledged development department, especially needed during the Capital Campaign that was launched in connection with the Museum Tower (Ratkovich) project. Sue Sirkus (1990 - 1993) was CAFAM’s first full-time Director of Development. She was followed by Kim Litsey (1994 - 1996), and then Nancy Fister, who managed Development concerns while she was Acting Director through the end of 1996, and then became Director of Development when Paul Kusserow was hired as Executive Director in January 1997. Both Edith Wyle and Patrick Ela were always heavily involved in fundraising for CAFAM. Fundraising took the form of memberships, individual donations, grantwriting, the annual fundraising dinner-dance gala, the Capital Campaign, and some special events. The Development Department also worked closely with the Board of Trustees and the various support groups, especially the Associates. A large section of the Administrative Series (3.01, Box 234, folder 1 - Box 237, folder 6) concerns Publicity and Marketing, some of which originated with the Development Department. (See also separate Public Relation Department Record Group.)

3.02 Annual Fundraiser 1977 - 1994

Scope and Contents note

These files are arranged chronologically. Beginning in April 1977, an annual dinner-dance fundraiser to benefit CAFAM was produced. Mark Gallon (on loan to work on CAFAM development from Tosco, Mort Winston’s company) was influential in initiating it. Each year a special guest of honor (in some years more than one) was named and people and organizations associated with that person were especially targeted to purchase both tickets to the event and space ads in the program book. The event was held at an important hotel; tables were sold for a special dinner; a band was hired for music and dancing; and entertainment was arranged, often with an “ethnic” theme, sometimes associated with the current CAFAM exhibition. Other auxiliary activities were sometimes held, such as a kick-off party a few weeks before the dinner- dance, a silent auction, or a raffle. At first, a group of women associated with CAFAM known as Las Primaveras organized the event and were utilized to assist with preparations and advertising for the fundraiser and to hand- address invitation envelopes, including personal notes where appropriate. This women’s group included some board members and other “high-end” donors. Later, after a development officer was hired by CAFAM, that person was in charge, although there was usually a non-staff person who was the chief coordinator. The event was originally called the Festival Primavera Ball and was usually produced in the spring. Over the years, Festival Primavera was the name that was used most frequently, although from time to time a different concept was used. In 1982, a “Great Chefs Dinner” was held in the fall in addition to the regular spring Festival Primavera. The Great Chefs theme was used again in 1985, 1986, and 1987. In 1989 a “Primavera Black and White Ball” was announced and in 1990 the “By the Sea Ball” was held in Santa Monica. In 1993 the “Primavera Birthday Ball” was held in honor of CAFAM’s 20th anniversary. The last such event was held in 1995 (part of the overall “Homecoming” celebration) in honor of the reopening of the renovated and expanded Craft and Folk Art Museum. For documents regarding this latter 1995 event, see Series 2.06, New Museum -- Homecoming Weekend, in the CAFAM Administrative and Special Events Record Group. See also Homecoming Weekend in Series 4.01 in the Public Relations Record Group.
