Mary J. O’Malley Wyles correspondence

Grandmother, Mary Josephine O’Malley Wyles (b. 1903, Las Vegas, NM; d. 1991, Albuquerque, NM; also known as Josie O’Malley and Molly Wyles) was part of the literary circle of 1920s New Mexico, and she told me stories, which I unfortunately didn’t record, about her correspondence and friendships with some of them, including Ashley Pond, the poet, and others, whose names I don’t remember now.  At any rate, I have found some small evidence of this in her archived correspondence with a man named Spud Johnson.  One of her letters is archived with his papers at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center University of Texas at Austin.  [http://research.hrc.utexas.edu:8080/hrcxtf/view?docId=ead/00063.xml]
