AG38


Creator: Edward Weston, 1886-1958
Title: The Edward Weston Archive
Inclusive Dates: 1870-1958
Quantity: 75 Linear Feet
Abstract:Nearly all periods of Weston's life and work are represented in the archive. Little documentation exists, however, regarding his childhood (1886-1906), early years in California (1906-1923), or life after he was stricken with Parkinson's disease (1947-1958). The archive is particularly rich in documentation of his years in Mexico (1923-1926), and years after he returned to California (1927-1940s). It also contains significant examples of Weston's writing. Many of his letters to his sons are included, as are the original pages for his daybooks. These pages, amounting to 1000 in number, range from undated fragments in an immature hand to clearly dated bold ink scrawls.

Nearly all periods of Weston's life and work are represented in the archive. Little documentation exists, however, regarding his childhood (1886 1906), early years in California (1906-1923), or life after he was stricken with Parkinson's disease (1947 1958). The archive is particularly rich in documentation of his years in Mexico (1923 1926), and years after he returned to California (1927-1940s).
