Description
Between 1968 and 1975, the artist and author Crockett Johnson (1906-1975) sent a variety of mathematical inquiries to his Connecticut acquaintance Milton (Mickey) Rosenau. The questions relate to Crockett Johnson's mathematical paintings and drawings for them. Rosenau's replies apparently do not survive.
