Correspondence is arranged chronologically, with letters from Adams and Waters interfiled. Incoming correspondence to Waters
from others, primarily concerning the production of Adams' books, follows the Adams-Waters correspondence. Subject files for
the books Waters worked on are arranged alphabetically by title of book.
Friend and business associate of American photographer Ansel Adams, George Waters corresponded with Adams over a period of
almost forty years. Waters supervised the photolithography work for many of Adams' publications; the correspondence reflects
both Adams' and Waters' attention to detail and the creation of fine reproductions.
