Subseries 8C: Writings, 1930-1976

16 boxes
SOME ONLINE CONTENT
This subseries represents a substantial portion of the 2007 donation and comprises the writings, published and unpublished, of Derso and Kelen. The distinction between 'Book Suggestions' and 'Unpublished Works' was determined by the author. Kelen designated a certain grouping of his unpublished works specifically as 'book suggestions.' In the unpublished/book suggestions categories, some writings are typescripts and ready for presentation to a publisher while others are in a less formal state; basically hand-written rough drafts.

There are two new entries into the 'Art Works' sub-series, 'Sketchbooks' and 'Children's Book Illustrations.' Kelen carried stenographer's notebooks to the early conferences and meetings that led to the establishment of the United Nations and recorded on the spot drawings of the participants in these notebooks which he later referred to when completing a formal portrait sketch. In the 1960s, Kelen began writing and illustrating children's books for the United Nations and drafts and illustrations for these books, both published and unpublished, are part of the 2007 added materials.

The 'Miscellaneous' subseries is comprised mainly of photographs depicting the artists in Europe and the United States and photographs of their art works. Of note are the Audiovisual materials. The kinescope was transferred to a DVD and records a short segment of the opening day at the United Nations building in New York City in 1950 filmed and produced by Kelen and featuring the arrival of John Foster Dulles and V. K. Krishna Menon. The 16" transcription disc has not been transferred to modern media but by date it presumably relates to the activites at the United Nations.
