Biographical Sketch

Photographer, artist, art collector, author, and filmmaker Eliot Elisofon was born Meyer Eliot Elicofon, the son of immigrants Sarah and Samuel Elicofon, in New York City on April 17, 1911. As a teenager, he became interested in both photography and painting. Elisofon graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School in 1929, and at that time he dropped his first name and changed the spelling of his surname. For the next few years he worked at the New York State Workmen's Compensation Bureau while attending Fordham University at night, ultimately receiving a B.S. in 1933. Meanwhile, he continued to pursue his interest in photography, and in 1935 Elisofon, Marty Bauman, and Al Weiner opened a commercial photography studio, August and Company. As a commercial photographer, Elisofon expanded from product advertising photoraphs to fashion photography assignments for magazines such as Mademoiselle and Vogue. He was a member of the Photo League, serving as its president for a time, and he developed a strong interest in photography as social documentary. Elisofon's photographs documenting New York street scenes were exhibited in 1937 at the Pennsylvania Museum of Art in Philadelphia and at the Julian Levy Gallery in New York. In 1938, his work was exhibited at the East River Gallery and at the New School for Social Research, where he worked as an instructor. After showing his portfolio to LIFE magazine in 1937, Elisofon began receiving assignments from that magazine and others and decided to devote his career to photojournalism. He left the studio in 1938 to work as a freelance magazine photographer, producing mainly travel and glamour photographs which were published in such magazines as Fortune and Scribner's, as well as Mademoiselle, Vogue, and Glamour. For LIFE, he also produced photographic essays on a variety of subjects, ranging from military exercises to refugees to coal miners, from actresses and plays to social clubs. Elisofon also worked as a staff photographer for the Museum of Modern Art in 1939 and became skilled at photographing works of art.

Elisofon joined the LIFE staff in 1942 as a war photographer-correspondent, and during the remainder of World War II he traveled to the North African front, to Sweden and Finland, and to Hawaii and Wake Island. In the post-war years, he began working on geographical photo essays in the United States and around the world. He eventually developed a special interest in Africa and became a collector of African art and an expert in that area. As a member of the Peabody Museum of Salem's 1956 expedition to the South Pacific, led by William A. Robinson, Elisofon photographed the voyage and collected artifacts from the South Sea Islands as the expedition traced the Polynesian migration route. He was appointed a Research Fellow in Primitive Art at Harvard University in 1958, and he was a member of the Harvard Peabody Museum's 1961 expedition to film tribal life in New Guinea. Elisofon remained a staff photographer for LIFE from 1942 to 1964 and then, although he also pursued freelance and commercial work, he continued to work for LIFE on a contract basis until the magazine suspended publication at the end of 1972. During those three decades, Elisofon traveled more than a million miles on six continents, covering assignments on places, art, architecture, celebrities, food, and social subjects. He continued to do freelance work for Smithsonian Magazine, National Geographic, Horizon, and other magazines until his death in 1973.

Elisofon was known for his experiments with color control, and he worked as a color consultant on the films Moulin Rouge, Bell, Book and Candle, and The Greatest Story Ever Told, among others. In 1965, he directed the prologue of the film Khartoum and a portion of Man Builds for National Educational Television. Elisofon was director of creative production for the ABC documentary Africa in 1967, and in 1972 he wrote, produced, and directed a four-hour television series for Group W (Westinghouse Broadcasting Company) titled Black African Heritage.

Besides collecting primitive art and sculpture, other interests Elisofon pursued were cooking and painting, and he was able to take advantage of his worldwide travel as a photographer to develop all of these simultaneously. His photographs, watercolor paintings, and objects from his personal collection of primitive art have been exhibited throughout the United States and other countries.

Elisofon frequently lectured on a variety of subjects at museums, colleges, and clubs around the country; topics included photography, African art, and his travels. He also wrote numerous articles and essays as well as several books, including the cookbook Food Is a Four-Letter Word (1948); The Sculpture of Africa (1958); Color Photography (1961); The Nile (1964); Java Diary (1969); and Erotic Spirituality (1971). He wrote and illustrated three of a series of Crowell-Collier's children's books showing a week in the lives of children in other countries. Elisofon contributed photographs to Joseph Campbell's edition of Heinrich Zimmer's The Art of Indian Asia (1955) and Arthur Knight's The Hollywood Style (1969), among others, and he also provided illustrations for publications by Time-Life Books, including a "Foods of the World" cookbook series.

Elisofon was married twice, first to Mavis Lyons (married July 1, 1941, divorced 1946) and later to Joan Spear (married July 15, 1950, divorced 1965), with whom he had two daughters, Elin (b. 1952) and Jill (b. 1953). Throughout his life, Elisofon maintained a primary residence in New York City and a secondary one on the island of Vinalhaven, Maine. Elisofon died in New York City on April 7, 1973, as a result of a massive cerebral hemorrhage.

Elisofon was a founding trustee of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African Art in 1964 and at the time of his death was a curatorial associate. He bequeathed to that museum not only his collection of African art, but also his photographs, transparencies, and film footage of Africa and its art. Before his death Elisofon had also donated pieces of his African and Pacific art collection to that museum, the Museum of Primitive Art in New York, the Peabody Museum of Salem, Massachusetts, and to many other institutions.

Scope and Contents

Eliot Elisofon's career as a photojournalist, filmmaker, author, artist, and collector of primitive art and sculpture is documented by photographs, transparencies, slides, negatives, films, research material, notes, photo captions, logbooks, correspondence, agreements and other documents, drafts, proofs, tearsheets, clippings, scrapbooks, catalogs, sketchbooks, and artifacts, all dating from 1933 to 1988. The archive is organized in ten series: I. Photography Files, 1933-1973, nd; II. Film and Television Projects, 1953-1973, 1986; III. Writings and Lectures, 1938-1973; IV. Artwork, 1935-1969; V. Exhibitions, 1936-1986; VI. Private Art Collection, 1939-1969, nd; VII. Food Files, 1943-1969, nd; VIII. Correspondence, 1930-1973, nd; IX. About Elisofon, 1930-1985; and X. Elin Elisofon, 1976-1988, nd. Within each series material is arranged primarily in chronological order. For preservation reasons, photographic materials have been physically separated into three sets of boxes according to format--color transparencies and color prints, black and white prints and paper material, or black and white negatives. However, the folder list keeps this material together intellectually.

Elisofon's photography files, the first and largest series, are arranged by the date the photographs were originally taken, as much as can be determined, and not by the date they were published, since the images may have been published much later, in multiple publications, or not at all. Elisofon primarily is remembered as a photographer for LIFE magazine, as his relationship with that magazine spanned 35 years, and the collection reflects that dominance; the majority of the photographs were taken for that magazine or for Time-Life Books. Other photographs include those taken for personal reasons, for other books and publications, or for commercial assignments.

Other series relate to Elisofon's film and television projects, his writings and lectures, artwork, exhibitions, art collection, food files, correspondence, various materials about Elisofon, and to his daughter Elin's work on a book and exhibition. Materials relating to films for which Elisofon served as a still photographer only are housed with the photography files, but materials for films for which he served in other technical capacities are located in the film series. Elisofon was a published author, and he also served as a visiting lecturer or instructor at numerous universities, museums, and clubs. Materials relating to those writings and lectures form two subseries within the Writings and Lectures series. In addition, Elisofon was an artist, noted for his watercolors of nudes and flowers; his sketchbooks, as well as photographs of some of his paintings, may be found in the archive (Series IV). Materials relating to exhibitions of Elisofon's paintings are combined with items relating to exhibitions of his photographs and objects from his collection of primitive art in a single series (Series V). Other manuscripts and photographs, including records of sales and donations, relating to Elisofon's private art collection are located within their own series (Series VI). Elisofon's culinary interest is reflected throughout the collection, and recipes are located in his logbooks as well as in the Food Files series. Wherever possible, materials have been maintained in their original order, so that correspondence located with particular files remains in those files, while other, similar, correspondence may be found in the Correspondence series. All correspondents in the papers are listed in the Index of Correspondents.

Material about Elisofon is divided into four subseries. Transcripts and clippings of interviews, published articles, and essays about Elisofon form the first subseries. Scrapbooks, primarily containing early tearsheets and clippings about Elisofon, form the second subseries. Elisofon's personal files of medical papers, financial and legal documents, address books, and the like make up the third subseries. A fourth subseries comprises personal photographs, mainly of Elisofon. Elin Elisofon's files from her work on a biography and exhibition on her father (Series IX) conclude the collection.

Because Elisofon's daughter Elin began sorting and organizing the material before it was acquired by the Ransom Center, she is very much a part of the archive. Besides providing much of the arrangement and many titles, she produced her own notes and correspondence; these are scattered throughout the collection, although the bulk of her work files are located in the final series. Eliot's and Elin's folder titles are indicated in the folder list by single quotation marks; these titles are usually the same as the story assignment title given by LIFE magazine.

Films, a videotape, and three empty film and negative containers have been removed from the archive and are housed separately in the Ransom Center. Books and periodicals, including some issues of LIFE, have been cataloged separately with the Center's book holdings. Those items are listed as Associated Materials at the end of this finding aid. Other lists include Elisofon's cover photographs, published photographs of Elisofon, and prints and negatives of Elisofon, his wives, and his daughers.

Series Descriptions

 

Series I. Photography Files, 1933-1973, nd (109 boxes)

Elisofon's photography files consist of photographs, negatives, transparencies, and paper documentation, from his early images of New York in the 1930s to his final story assigments in 1973. Significant items include Elisofon's logbooks, which are a valuable record of his travels and assignments. These notebooks contain dated captions, travel information, names and addresses, recipes, and miscellaneous jottings, including poetry and sketches by Elisofon. Among notable files are those for LIFE assignments, including Elisofon's first photographs published in LIFE, taken for stories on Jewish holidays and tintype street photographers.
Elisofon photographed many well-known personalities during his lifetime. Among these were dancers, including Martha Graham, Anna Sokolow, and the Miriam Winslow-Foster Fitz-Simons troupe; artists, such as Julio De Diego, Marcel Duchamp, Georgia O'Keeffe, and I. Rice Pereira; sculptors, including Chaim Gross, Martin Hebald, Robert Indiana, Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi, Billy Rose, and William Zorach; musicians and singers, such as Sallie Blair, Maria Callas, Helen Gallagher, and Alexander Schneider; actors, actresses and other celebrities, such as Ursula Andress, Eddie Cantor, Cyd Charisse, Doris Day, Greer Garson, Richard Harris, Helen Hayes, Willie Hartack, Rita Hayworth, Audrey Hepburn, Veronica Lake, Gypsy Rose Lee, Roddy McDowall, Steve McQueen, Minnesota Fats, Kim Novak, Eddie Rickenbacker, Harold Rome, Mickey Rooney, Jane Russell, Barbara Stanwyck, Gloria Swanson, Elizabeth Taylor, Gene Tierney, and Lana Turner; and political figures, such as Harry Truman, U Thant, and Nelson Rockefeller. A LIFE story on jazz musicians featured Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Dave Brubeck, Chet Baker, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa, and Charlie Parker. Numerous Hollywood celebrities, among them Natalie Wood, Charlton Heston, and Henry Fonda, were photographed in their homes for Elisofon's illustrations for Arthur Knight's book Hollywood Style.
Elisofon photographed theatrical productions, including Amahl and the Night Visitors, Compulsion, Mary Stuart, The Millionairess (in London), The Music Man,Romeo and Juliet, Three Penny Opera, Three Wishes for Jamie, Time and the River (Waco, Texas), as well as the making of the films The African Queen, Doctor Dolittle, The Greatest Story Ever Told, Khartoum, Moulin Rouge, She,The Sound of Music, Splendor in the Grass, The War Lord, and others.
Elisofon made photographic records of art and sculpture in museums all over the world, including the Victoria and Albert Museum and British Museum in London, the Musée Guimet in Paris, the Leiden Museum, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Shelburne Museum in Vermont, the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, and the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe. Among Elisofon's many architectural subjects were pyramids in Teotihuacan and Juan O'Gorman's house near Mexico City, Konarak and other temples in India, the Charles Wrightsman house in Palm Beach, the New Museum in Israel, and Bali temples in Indonesia.
Elisofon also photographed historically significant moments. Prior to World War II, he documented the Norfolk Naval Shipyard and training exercises at Fort Benning and Fort Knox, and his photograph of George S. Patton was used as the first color cover of LIFE. During the war he covered the North African campaign, with much time spent in Tunisia and Casablanca, and among his subjects were Patton, Dwight D. Eisenhower, artist Fletcher Martin, Henri Giraud, and the 4th Indian Division of the 8th Army. He was also present at the surrender at Wake Island. During an assignment on South Dakota, Elisofon photographed the carving of Mount Rushmore. He documented Jawaharlal Nehru's funeral in 1964. He took photographs of celebrities participating in a rally at the Hollywood Bowl and in the 1963 Freedom March in Washington.
Elisofon was well known for his geographical photo essays, and he traveled all over the world documenting places and people of other cultures. Among the locations he photographed were the South Sea Islands, the West Indies, the Atlantic coastlines of the United States and Europe, Indonesia, Japan, Egypt, India, Africa, Hawaii, Canada, South America, Israel, Mexico, and numerous areas around the United States. For "Great Sights of the World" and "Exotic Bazaars" stories he traveled to major cities around the world, photographing their best-known sights.
Elisofon also was skilled at photographing food. He shot European restaurants for LIFE and for Canadian Club advertisements, foods for barbecuing, teenage cooking, cooking turtles, Christmas foods, Indian cooking, Chinese cooking, etc. For Time-Life Books' "Foods of the World" series he photographed in Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Russia, Poland, India, and Pakistan.
Among the wide variety of cultural and human interest stories were assignments on the Olneyville Boys Club, a Chinese mural in Kansas City, Seminole Indians, the New York Rangers ice hockey team, the British royal family's visits to South Africa (1947) and the Fiji Islands (1953), the 1939 and 1963 World's Fairs in New York, fireplace styles, kitchens, fashions, cars, and toys.
Elisofon documented a number of social issues; among these were the lack of playgrounds in Manhattan, a poverty-stricken rural Alabama family, the Cotton Stamp plan in Memphis, relief efforts in Ohio, and the Westchester Health Department. In 1939 he took photographs of the rural poor who had been the subjects of the Federal Writers Project book These Are Our Lives.
Among Elisofon's advertising photographs are those for Canadian Club; for Tydol Flying A Gasoline, featuring early photographs of American Airlines; and for Soligor Lens, using the fashion model Ultra Violet.
Elisofon contributed photographs for many books, including the Time-Life "Foods of the World" cookbook series, a Crowell-Collier series of children's books about children of other countries, and Joseph Campbell's edition of Heinrich Zimmer's The Art of Indian Asia.
The materials in this series are arranged in chronological order by the dates on which photographs were taken, rather than by publication dates, since there were sometimes long periods of time until publication, and some stories were never published. As a result, LIFE magazine stories are roughly in order by their set, or story, number. Due to varying preservation storage requirements, black and white photographs and paper materials are filed in one set of boxes, while color materials and black and white negatives are housed in separate sets of boxes. Elisofon's logbooks are housed at the end of the series.
Elisofon's and his daughter Elin's labels have been transcribed and are noted in the folder list by single quotation marks; cataloger-supplied information is in brackets. Labels were transcribed from glassine negative envelopes, and those envelopes with writing or notes were retained and filed behind their associated negatives. Elisofon's roll numbers are letter-coded; an R before the roll number indicates it was taken with his Rolleiflex camera (120mm film); C, with his Contax camera (35mm); K, with Kodachrome 35mm slide film; and P, with his filmpack camera. An "X" on a particular frame or with an exposure number probably indicates that the exposure was printed.
Original assignment titles, published titles, and other publication information for stories are provided in the folder list when known. Prints and negatives are black and white unless noted as color. Elisofon's prints sometimes vary from standard sizes by millimeters. The approximate sizes and, when there are more than one, the number of photographic images are provided. LIFE magazine's set, or story, numbers, are indicated where they exist; stories shot for personal reasons, for freelance purposes, or for other publications, do not have set numbers. It is probable that set numbers preceded by "LB" indicate Time-Life Books assignments. A complete list of all of Elisofon's LIFE set numbers is housed at the end of the series.
Non-photographic materials in this series include tearsheets of published stories, photo captions, correspondence, notes by Elisofon or his daughter, background research material, such as reports or scripts by LIFE story researchers, maps, and photocopies of prints. Captions for prints are descriptive lists of the photographs taken and sometimes are in narrative form. Photocopy and original tearsheets are not differentiated in the folder list; however, photocopies of prints are indicated as such. Color photocopies are filed with color transparencies.

Elisofon was a noted painter, working primarily in watercolor, and his early sketchbooks are present in the collection. In addition, photographs of some of Elisofon's artwork are present, as are two slides of Elisofon's art studio in Vinalhaven, Maine; these images are arranged chronologically following the sketchbooks.

Series V. Exhibitions, 1936-1986 (2 boxes)

Elisofon's photographs, paintings, and collection of primitive art were exhibited throughout the United States and in other countries; those exhibitions are represented chronologically by photographs and negatives, schedules, lists of items exhibited, agreements, correspondence, clippings, press releases, and catalogs.
Of Elisofon's numerous exhibitions, several are particularly noteworthy due to the extent or kind of material found about them in the collection. "Tunisian Triumph," an exhibition of Elisofon's photographs taken in North Africa during World War II, toured to eleven museums, including the Museum of Modern Art. Negatives and an installation list are among other items from that show. "An American's View of the Nordic Countries" was an exhibition of both photographs and watercolors that was shown in Stockholm, Gothenberg, and Malmö. Its exhibit catalog and a list of watercolors are present in the collection. Contact sheets, correspondence, and text by Ralph Pomeroy provide information on an exhibition of photographs and sculpture titled "Understanding African Sculpture" organized by Elisofon at the Art Institute of Chicago; that exhibition also circulated to other institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art. A touring photo exhibition on "Nine Indian Temples" is represented by prints, loan agreements, and captions by Joseph Campbell. Elisofon curated an exhibition of "Masterpieces of Primitive Art," displaying artifacts from Harvard's Peabody Museum and other collections, and his correspondence, a typescript of the catalog text, the catalog, and a transcript of the television program "Invitation to Art" represent that project. "African Art of the Dogon: The Lester Wunderman Collection," which used film, slides, and photographs by Elisofon, was sponsored by the International Exhibitions Foundation and toured to numerous cities throughout the United States. It is well represented by correspondence, agreements, invoices, a list of photographs, and catalog text, among other items. Photographs of "The Nile" were exhibited at numerous museums from 1964 to 1967 under the sponsorship of the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition Services. Elisofon's watercolor paintings were particularly well-received in Japan, where they were shown at the Gekkoso Gallery and used as designs for postal cards and scarves. "Tribute to Africa" was a posthumous exhibition at the Museum of African Art in 1974, and it featured Elisofon's photographs, slides, films, and sculpture.
