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.
For related transactions, see the collection of Crockett Johnson's mathematical paintings (transaction 1979.1093), related nonaccessioned correspondence and drawings of Crockett Johnson (transaction 1979.3083), and correspondence received from Harley Flanders (transaction 2009.3005).
