Scope and arrangement
The letters include postcards, notes, and poems written by Bernstein to Pauline and Dan Futransky with whom she shared a close friendship. The letters contain personal sentiments such as birthday wishes and discussion about travel and the Futransky children, as well as discussion about her art and often the art of her husband. Many of the letters include poetry and catalogues or cards for Bernsteins exhibitions. There is also a separate folder containing invitations and catalogs for Bernstein and Myerowitzs exhibitions, as well as a folder of original poetry by Bernstein. Envelopes that have become separated from their letters are found at the end of the collection.
