Hettie Jones papers, 1895-2009, bulk 1958-2009

Series VI: Audio, Visual, and Photographic Materials, 1918-2000s

This series comprises cassettes, VHS tapes, and photographs pertaining to Jones' personal life and literary career. The VHS tapes contain recordings of Jones' appearances on various documentaries and television shows, primarily relating to the Beat/Downtown New York literary scene. The cassette tapes primarily consist of recordings of Jones' radio appearances and interviews, as well as public readings of her works.

The bulk of this series consists of photographs, which include images of the Cohen family from the early Twentieth Century, and also a large number of Jones during college. The largest set of photographs are those of Jones taken during the Fifties and Sixties in New York City's East Village, and includes photos of her then-husband LeRoi Jones, her children Kellie and Lisa, and a number of other New York City writers and artists. Many of the photographs were originally arranged in scrapbooks, and, when possible, this order has been maintained.

Video box (box 60) and audio boxes (57 and 58) are all found in record storage carton box 63.
