Collection David C. Driskell Papers
System of arrangement This series is broken into seven distinct sub-series.
Description This series is broken into seven separate sub-series, all of which center on David C. Driskell's personal life. As a whole, the materials in this series convey Prof. Driskell's personal relationships, interests, and everyday life. The Correspondence sub-series is the largest of the seven, and perhaps one of the most interesting because it contains the personal correspondence Prof. Driskell kept between the years 1962 to 2011. The Family and Biographical Information sub-series is particularly interesting because it is one of the only segments of the Driskell Papers that contains correspondence between Prof. Driskell and his family members. Generally, researchers will find that this series is a valuable resource for better understanding David Driskell beyond his career as an educator, artist, and curator. For additional information on what the individual sub-series contain, please consult the sub-series descriptions respectively.

The series is comprised of personal correspondence, biographical information, curriculum vitae, newspaper clippings, periodicals, ephemera, writings, journal entries, speeches, receipts, manuscripts, art appraisals, and miscellaneous materials. Some materials have been restricted to respect the wishes of the donor and to protect sensitive personal identifiable information.
