Dear Stacey,

After checking our files, I have discovered that we lack any formal copyright paperwork, other than the catalog itself.

In light of this, we ask that you contact the executor of Donelson Hoopes's estate for permission. His name is Joerg-Henner Lotze.  He is the director of the Humboldt Field Research Institute/Eagle Hill Foundation in Steuben, Maine, to which Mr. Hoopes left part of his estate.

If Mr. Lotze says it's okay for you to use the essay, then it's okay with Skowhegan, provided the author, Skowhegan, and the publication are properly credited.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Best,

Adrienne
