This subseries is the most substantial of the Business Files series. The papers are chiefly concerned with business arrangements,
which include the organization and preparation of exhibits, invitations and correspondence relating to lectures and symposia, travel
arrangements, and the scheduling of studio tours and visits. There is also a great deal of personal correspondence with friends,
family, and professional contacts with which Segal developed personal relationships. These materials often relate Segal's candid
opinions on his business dealings, his own work, family matters, and life in general. Finally, there is correspondence from admirers
and students, some of which goes on over a period of many years. Photographs, when present, are indicated in the file notes.
Personal names of interest have been included in the file notes.
In some cases, files will overlap dates within a year (for example: Business Correspondence, January 13 – March
10, 1970 and Business Correspondence, March 1 – March 25, 1970). This arrangement reflects
the original order of the creator, as Segal would staple or group related correspondence and materials together. When this is the
case, the group of documents is filed by the earliest dated piece of correspondence in the group. Researchers interested in
correspondence from certain years should note whether or not that time frame is indicated in another file.
Additional business correspondence files are located in Series 11: Additional Material. Those materials fill the gap between
1971-1990 reflected in this subseries.
