1960 Andrew Wyeth show featured in March Archives exhibit

Posted February 28th, 2006 by Lois Beattie

In the fall of 1960 MIT mounted an exhibition of forty works by Andrew Wyeth in the Hayden Gallery. March’s Object of the Month exhibit by the Institute Archives and Special Collections displays a letter from Wyeth to MIT’s first lady, Catherine Stratton, setting forth his reasons for declining an invitation to an opening cocktail party. The letter is from the Catherine Nelson Stratton Papers, which include her “Social Book,” records of entertainment at the President’s House while Julius Stratton was president of MIT.
