Scope and Contents

This catalogue prints an extensive interview of Harvey S. Shipley Miller that provides the background as to how the collection was formed. Carl Andre's typed carbon drawing entitled "words men word..." from the collection of Eileen and Michael Cohen (purchased by Shipley Miller) is depicted on page 84 of this catalogue, and is identical to the Sackner typing who have called their piece July 26... after the title at the bottom of the drawing. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
