Scope and Contents

Series I, BIOGRAPHICAL, 1972-2015 (#1.1-4.12, SD.1) consists of information about Chicago's life, background, and achievements. The types of documents included in this series range from brief biographies (both autobiographical and written by others), curricula vitae, bibliographies, filmographies, interviews, awards, honorary degree files, acceptance speeches, press kits, and correspondence regarding travel and lodging arrangements. Institutions and organizations from across the United States are represented among the interviewers and degree- or award-granting organizations, such as Duke University, the Smithsonian, the Society for the Psychology of Women of the American Psychological Association, the University of California at Los Angeles, and many more. Of special interest is documentation commemorating a "Judy Chicago Day" in two cities: Louisville, Kentucky, and Chicago's adoptive hometown of Belen, New Mexico. Also included is Chicago's web site, which is being captured periodically as part of Schlesinger Library's web archiving program. The series is arranged in alphabetical order.
