The Judith Young Mallin Surrealist Archive contains a variety of materials that relate to artists of the Surrealist movement and those who have been influenced by their work. Young-Mallin collected and assembled her research files, third-party correspondence, photographs, and ephemera to document the artistic milieu in New York from the late 1930s to the early 1950s, especially among expatriates fleeing Europe during wartime. She was personally acquainted with some of these individuals -- such as Carol Janeway, Leonora Carrington, and Dorathea Tanning -- and Young-Mallin's interactions with them are highlighted in interviews and direct correspondence. The Young-Mallin Archive has been consulted by scholars conducting archival research into this artistic circle; their social lives are particularly well illuminated. Friendships, marriages, and love affairs are frequently highlighted in Judith's interviews.
