Scope and Content Note


General files, arranged chronologically, precede name and subject files, arranged alphabetically. In original arrangement, approximately one-third of the files were titled by name or subject, with the bulk filed by year as "general" or "miscellaneous." During processing, material in the latter files that was determined to document any of the names and subjects already identified were transferred to those files. Based on the amount of documentation or research interest, several additional name and subject files were created during processing as well; namely, "acquisitions offered," "attributions," "collection," as well as Duchamp's works commonly known as "Large Glass" and "Green Box." Files pertaining to Raymond Duchamp-Villon, Lillian Kiesler and a few other individuals were also created.
