Open All Close All

  • "The literary manuscripts and notebooks include the original mockups and handwritten notes for Kruse's published works. Some of Kruse's other projects include: a staple machine invention; an idea for a television show; and some literary projects, which did not achieve fruition."
  • "The collection also includes several books kept by Kruse that contain autograph annotations by Kruse. The remaining four books from the Kruse library are cataloged separately in Rare Books, call numbers: 606358, 606359, 606360, and 606362."
  • "The correspondence includes letters received by Kruse between the early 1900s until his death in 1972. Some were from personal friends; and others were from other artists, students, and business-related entities such as galleries or publishers."
  • "The Alexander Z. Kruse papers contain documents relating to Kruse's career as an artist, art critic, and author. The time frame covered is 1890 to 1975 with the bulk of the material originating from the 1930s to 1960s. The material is arranged by functional series and includes: literary manuscripts and notebooks; correspondence; photographic materials--photographs and slides; ephemera--clippings, catalogs, and biographical material; and books. The majority of the collection is in its original format with a few being photocopies. The photographic materials are in good condition. However, much of the ephemera (especially the newspaper clippings) is extremely fragile. Most of the clippings are from Kruse's columns with the Brooklyn Eagle and the New York Post."
