The collection documents Robert Watts's development as an artist and art professor, with ample evidence of his relationship with Fluxus colleagues, dealers and friends. It presents Watts's Iowa family background with photographs, correspondence, family geneolgies, health histories, legal and financial papers, and clippings dating back to the 1880s; together with report cards and yearbooks, these offer a relatively clear picture of the artist's midwestern roots. Academic files convey Watts's career with nearly annual grant applications and project proposals. Professional Correspondence is mainly between Watts and his dealers, including Francesco Conz and Rolfe Ricke, along with certain curators and collectors, such as Jean Brown and Gilbert Silverman. Personal correspondence is relatively scant
