Join us as we take a closer look at the relationship between Wharton Esherick and Miriam Philips, highlighting their teamwork and partnership over the last twenty years of Wharton’s life. Through the lens of our recent archival discoveries, which have shed a light on Esherick’s life in the 1950s and 60s, we’ll highlight Miriam’s role not only as Wharton’s companion but also as an important figure in his business, often corresponding on his behalf to various patrons and clients.
Led by Archives Fellow Erin Palmer, we’ll explore a selection of archival documents in this 20-minute program to illustrate just how much they depended on one another and how important they were to one another, with a little time at the end for questions and conversation!
