Chronology

CHRONOLOGY

 

1898

22 August: Calder is born in Lawnton, Pennsylvania, to Nanette Lederer Calder, a painter, and Alexander Stirling Calder, a sculptor. His sister Peggy is two years old. (Calder 1966, 11)

1902

Before 20 January: Calder poses for his father's sculpture, Man Cub, in Philadelphia. Calder sculpts his own clay elephant. (Calder 1966, 13)

1905

Spring: Stirling Calder contracts tuberculosis. Calder's parents move to a ranch in Oracle, Arizona, leaving the two children in the care of Dr. Charles P. Shoemaker, a dentist, and his wife, Nan. (Calder 1966, 15; Hayes 1977, 18)

1906

End of March: Nanette picks up Calder and Peggy and they rejoin their father in Oracle. Calder befriends Riley, an elderly man recuperating at the ranch who shows him "how to make a wigwam out of burlap bags pinned together with nails." (Calder 1966, 16)

Fall: The Calders move to Pasadena, California. At that time, on Euclid Avenue in Pasadena, I got my first tools and was given the cellar with its window as a workshop. Mother and father were all for my efforts to build things myself—they approved of the homemade . . . My workshop became some sort of a center of attention; everybody came in. (Calder 1966, 21)

Fall: My sister had quite a few dolls for which we made extraordinary jewelry from beads and very fine copper wire that we found in the street left over by men splicing electric cables. (Calder 1952, 37)

25 December: Peggy once gave me a very nice pair of pliers at Christmas. I made her a little Christmas tree, completely decorated, out of a fallen branch. So she wept because my gift was homemade. (Calder 1966, 21)

1907

1 January: Calder attends Pasadena's Tournament of Roses, where he experiences the four-horse chariot races. (Calder 1966, 22)

1909

Spring: The Calders move to a new house on 555 Linda Vista Avenue. Calder's workshop consists of a tent with a wooden floor. Calder attends fourth grade at Garfield School. (CF, Nanette to Trask, 30 March; Calder 1966, 26–27)

December: For Christmas, Calder presents his parents with a dog and a duck that he trimmed from a brass sheet and bent into formation. The duck is kinetic, rocking back and forth when tapped. (Sweeney 1943, 57; Hayes 1977, 41)

Before 11 January: For his father's birthday, Calder makes Animal Zoo Puzzle, a game consisting of five painted animals—a tiger, a lion, and three bears—and a wooden board with nails divided into six pens. The challenge is to move the animals from their pens without having two animals in the same pen at once. (Hayes 1977, 42)

1912

The Calders move to Spuyten Duyvil, New York. The cellar becomes Calder's workshop. Calder and Peggy attend Yonkers High School. Stirling rents a studio in New York City on 51 West Tenth Street. (Calder 1966, 34–35)

1915

Spring: Stirling and Nanette move to Berkeley to be near Stirling's next commission, the Oakland Auditorium. Calder stays with the architect Walter Bliss and his wife to graduate from Lowell High School. (Calder 1966, 37–38; Hayes 1977, 52–53; CF, Calder 1955–56, 14)

August: The Calders move back to New York City on Claremont Place. (Calder 1966, 39; Hayes 1977, 55)

September: Calder begins his studies at Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, New Jersey, where he takes courses which include chemistry, mechanical drawing, shop practice, and surveying, among others. (Calder 1966, 39)

1916

Summer: Calder spends five weeks in the Plattsburg Civilian Military Training Camp, New York, drilling with Company H, Fifth Training Regiment. (Calder 1966, 46)

9 June: Serving on the H.F. Alexander as a fireman in the boiler room, Calder sails from New York to San Francisco via the Panama Canal. It was early one morning on a calm sea, off Guatemala, when over my couch—a coil of rope—I saw the beginning of a fiery red sunrise on one side and the moon looking like a silver coin on the other. Of the whole trip this impressed me most of all; it left me with a lasting sensation of the solar system. (Calder 1966, 53–55; CF, Patterson to Rower, 26 April 2010)

Mid-June: Arriving in San Francisco, Calder takes a lumber schooner to Willapa Harbor, Washington, where he catches the bus for Aberdeen and meets his sister Peggy and her husband, Kenneth Hayes. Calder finds a job as a timekeeper for a logging camp in Independence, Washington. I was supposed to make out paychecks for people. I also had to scale the logs as they were loaded on the flatcars. (Calder 1966, 55–56)

Summer: Inspired by the logging camp landscape, Calder writes home and asks his mother for paints and brushes. (CF, Calder 1955–56, 39; Calder 1966, 57–58)

1923

Spring: With the help of Stirling's introduction, Calder seeks employment with an engineer in Canada. I went to Vancouver and called on him, and we had quite a talk about what career I should follow. He advised me to do what I really wanted to do—he himself often wished he had been an architect. So, I decided to become a painter. (Calder 1966, 59)

Summer: Calder writes the Kellogg Company and suggests they modify their cereal packaging, putting the wax paper on the inside rather than on the outside of the boxes. The company adopts his suggestion and sends him a note of thanks along with a case of Corn Flakes. (Hayes 1977, 76)

Before 23 May: Calder spends two weeks illustrating the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus for the National Police Gazette. I could tell by the music what act was getting on and used to rush to some vantage point. Some acts were better seen from above and others from below. (Calder 1966, 73; Gazette, 23 May)

Winter: Calder makes hundreds of brush drawings of animals at the Bronx Zoo and the Central Park Zoo. (CF, object files; Sweeney 1951, 72)

December: Calder takes a lithography class with Charles Locke at the Art Students League. (ASL, registration records)

Winter: Calder travels to Florida. First he visits Miami, then Sarasota, where he sketches at the winter grounds of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. I was very fond of the spatial relations. I love the space of the circus. I made some drawings of nothing but the tent. The whole thing of—the vast space—I’ve always loved it. (Gray 1964, 23)

1926

January: Artists Gallery, New York, includes an oil painting by Calder in a group exhibition. Murdock Pemberton, the art critic for the New Yorker, comments on the exhibition: A. Calder, too, we think is a good bet. (CF, exhibition file; Pemberton 1926)

Winter: While renting a room in the apartment of Alexander Brook, assistant director of the Whitney Studio Club, Calder embellishes the Brook children's "Humpty Dumpty Circus." He adds movement and articulation to the set of store-bought toys, making an elephant that could "go round a circle" and a mechanism that could "hoist a clown on his back." (Hayes 1977, 90; Calder 1966, 80; CF, Calder 1955–56, 44)

27 February: American painter Walter Kuhn organizes a stag dinner at the Union Square Volunteer Fire Brigade, Tip Toe Inn, New York, in honor of sculptor Constantin Brancusi's first visit to the United States. Calder paints Firemen's Dinner for Brancusi commemorating the event. (Geist 1976; AAA, Louis Bouché Papers, dinner invitation)

Before 5 March: Calder sketches a human dissection at Physicians and Surgeons Hospital. I drew for several hours and subsequently painted The Stiff . . . I went to a party that evening and kept asking if I did not smell of forma(h)ldehide—my hair, particularly. They said "no"—but the odor was with me—and although I really intended returning, I never did. (CF, Calder 1955–56, 51)

2 July: With the help of his former teacher, Clinton Balmer, Calder signs on to the crew of the Galileo, a British freighter sailing for Hull, England. He works as a laborer, painting the exterior of the ship. (Calder 1966, 76–77; CF, Calder to parents, 18 July)

19 July: Calder arrives in Hull, spends one night, and takes the noon train to London. (CF, Calder to parents, 18 July)

20 July: Calder arrives in London and stays four nights with Bob Trube, his fraternity brother from Stevens. (CF, Calder to parents, 26 July)

24 July: Calder leaves England, taking the 10 a.m. train from Victoria Station to New Haven and the ferry to Ville de Dieppe in France. He arrives in Paris and calls on Trube's father at the Hôtel de Versailles, 60 boulevard de Montparnasse. [Trube] had written his dad to look out for me. So I got a room here at 35F and am on the 7th floor with a French window that gives fine light and air and a red rug and brown wallpaper that would knock your eye out. Also an upright piano. (CF, Calder to parents, 26 July)

Summer: At the Café du Dôme, a meeting place for artists and their dealers, Calder recognizes American painter Arthur Frank, an acquaintance from New York, and meets British printmaker Stanley William Hayter, whose wife he knew from the Art Students League. (Calder 1966, 78)

Fall: Calder begins creating Cirque Calder, a complex and unique body of art. Fashioned from wire, fabric, leather, rubber, cork, and other materials, Cirque Calder is designed to be performed for an audience by Calder. It develops into a multi-act articulated series of mechanized sculpture in miniature scale, a distillation of the natural circus. Calder is able to travel with his easily transportable circus and hold performances on both continents. Over the next five years, Calder continues to develop and expand this work of performance art to fill five large suitcases. (CF, project file)

Fall: Clay Spohn, a painter friend from the Art Students League, visits Calder's studio and sees two works made from wood and wire: a cow and a four-horse chariot. He suggests that Calder use only wire. Calder makes the wire sculptures, Josephine Baker and Struttin' His Stuff. (Calder 1966, 80–81; CF, Calder 1955–56, 45)

Fall: Calder performs Cirque Calder for Mrs. Frances C. L. Robbins, a patron of young artists. On her recommendation, English novelist Mary Butts comes to see it and in turn sends Jean Cocteau to a performance. (CF, Calder 1955–56, 68; Hawes 1928)

1927

6 March–1 May: Calder exhibits toys in the "Salon des Humoristes" at Galerie de la Boétie, Paris. (CF, exhibition file)

1 May: Réal brings Guy Selz and the circus critic, Legrand-Chabrier, to see Calder perform Cirque Calder. Legrand-Chabrier admires Calder's work and writes several articles on the Cirque. Oh, these are stylized silhouettes, but astonishing in their miniature resemblance, obtained by means of luck, iron wire, spools, corks, elastics . . . A stroke of the brush, a stroke of the knife, of this, of that; these are the skillful marks that reconstruct the individuals that we see at the circus.
Here is a dog who seems like a prehistoric cave drawing with a body of iron wire. He will jump through a paper hoop. Yes, but he may miss his mark or not. This is not a mechanical toy . . . 
All of this is arranged and balanced according to the laws of physics in action so that it allows for the miracles of circus acrobatics.

(Calder 1966, 83; CF, Calder 1955–56, 149–50; Candide, 23 June)

17 June: Calder renews his French identity card. (CF, carte d'identité)

August: Galleries of Jacques Seligmann and Company, Paris, exhibits animated toys by Calder. (CF, exhibition file; Comoedia, 29 August)

4 August: The New York Herald, Paris, publishes an article about Calder and his decision to make toys: I began by futuristic painting in a small studio in the Greenwich Village section of New York. It was a lot different to engineering but I took to my newfound art immediately. But it seemed that during all of this time I could never forget my training at Stevens, for I started experimenting with toys in a mechanical way. I could not experiment with mechanism as it was too expensive and too bulky so I built miniature instruments. From that the toy idea suggested itself to me so I figured I might as well turn my efforts to something that would bring remuneration. From then on I have constructed several thousand workable toys. (New York Herald, 4 August)

27 September: Calder returns to New York and stays with his parents at 9 East Eighth Street. (CF, Calder 1955–56, 46; Calder 1966, 86)

After 12 November: Calder travels to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, to contract with Gould Manufacturing Company. He designs prototypes for a series of plywood animal Action Toys. (Calder 1966, 83–85; CF, Pajeau to Calder, 12 November)

Winter: Calder returns to New York and rents a room at 46 Charles Street where he gives Cirque Calder performances. (Calder 1966, 87; CF, Calder 1955–56, 46)

1928

20 February–3 March: Weyhe Gallery, New York, exhibits "Wire Sculpture by Alexander Calder." Calder creates a hanging sign, Wire Sculpture by Alexander Calder, for the gallery window. Pioneer Woman is sold to Marie Sterner, an art dealer. (CF, exhibition file; CF, Calder 1955–56, 25)

9 March–1 April: Calder exhibits four sculptures, including Romulus and Remus and Spring, in the Twelfth Annual Exhibition of The Society of Independent Artists at the Waldorf-Astoria, New York. (CF, exhibition file)

After 9 April: ACME Film Company produces Sculptor Discards Clay to Ply His Art in Wire, a film of Calder's wire sculpture that includes footage of Calder creating a wire portrait of Elizabeth "Babe" Hawes, a reporter and aspiring fashion designer whom he had met in Paris. (CF, project file)

Summer: Calder spends the summer working on wood and wire sculptures at the Peekskill, New York, farm of J. L. Murphy, the uncle of fraternity brother Bill Drew. I worked outside on an upturned water trough and carved the wooden horse bought later by the Museum of Modern Art, a cow, a giraffe, a camel, two elephants, another cat, several circus figures, a man with a hollow chest, and an ebony lady bending over dangerously, whom I daringly called Liquorice. (CF, Calder 1955–56, 47; Calder 1966, 88–89)

October: Hawes establishes a couture house at West Fifty-sixth Street in New York. Calder occasionally designs neckpieces and other accessories for her clothing. (Hawes 1938, 134–36; Berch 1988, 34–35)

24 October: The French Consulate, New York, grants Calder a visa. (AAA, passport)

3 November: Calder arrives at Le Havre after a voyage from New York on the De Grasse. He returns to Paris, where he rents a small building behind 7 rue Cels to use as his studio. (AAA, passport; Calder 1966, 91)

Fall: At the Café du Dôme, Paris, Calder sees his acquaintance, painter Yasuo Kuniyoshi, and meets "a small man in a bowler hat," who he learns is painter Jules Pascin, a friend of Stirling's. (Calder 1966, 91)

10 December: At the recommendation of Hawes, Calder writes to Joan Miró in Montroig, Spain, suggesting that they meet when Miró returns to Paris. (Calder 1966, 92; FJM, Calder to Miró, 10 December)

After 10 December: Calder visits Miró at his Montmartre studio, "a sort of metal tunnel, a kind of Quonset hut." Miró has no paintings in the studio, but he shows Calder a collage consisting of "a big sheet of heavy gray cardboard with a feather, a cork, and a picture postcard glued to it. There were probably a few dotted lines . . . I was nonplussed; it did not look like art to me." Later, Miró attends Cirque Calder. (Calder 1966, 92)

1929

18–28 January: Calder exhibits Romulus and Remus and Spring at the Salon de la Société des Artistes Indépendants, Paris. The public reaction is a mixture of confusion and delight. One critic remarks, At first, I believed that electricians had forgotten their electrical wire in this room, but as I passed, a wire became agitated and I noticed that it represented the head of a she-wolf. Another tangle of electrical wire represented, by all evidence, a giant young woman. Another critic advises, All the same, look at them. Who knows if the sculpture of Mr. Calder is not that of the future? In any case, it doesn’t spawn melancholy. (CF, exhibition file; Le Journal, 19 January; Liberté, 21 January)

25 January–7 February: Galerie Billiet-Pierre Vorms, Paris, exhibits "Sculptures bois et fil de fer de Alexander Calder." Pascin writes the preface for the exhibition catalogue:
By some miracle, I became a member of a group of Aces of American Art, a Society of very successful painters and sculptors!!!
—The fortunes of the life of an itinerant painter!
The same luck led me to meet the father Stirling Calder.
Away from New York at the time of our exhibition, I cannot testify to the success of our effort; but in any case, I can attest that Mr. Stirling Calder, who is one of our best American sculptors, is also the handsomest man in our Group.
Returning to Paris, I met his son SANDY CALDER, who at first sight left me quite disillusioned. He is less handsome than his Dad! Honestly!!!
But in the presence of his works, I know that he will soon make his mark; and that despite his appearance, he will exhibit with spectacular success alongside his Dad and other great artists like me, PASCIN, who’s talking to you . . . !
(CF, exhibition file)

After 25 January: In writing about his own history of wire sculpting, Calder notes a change in his approach to the medium: Before, the wire studies were subjective, portraits, caricatures, stylized representations of beasts and humans. But these recent things have been viewed from a more objective angle and although their present size is diminutive, I feel that there is no limitation to the scale to which they can be enlarged . . . There is one thing, in particular, which connects them with history. One of the canons of the futuristic painters, as propounded by Modigliani, was that objects behind other objects should not be lost to view, but should be shown through the others by making the latter transparent. The wire sculpture accomplishes this in a most decided manner. (CF, Calder, unpublished manuscript)

4–23 February: Weyhe Gallery, New York, exhibits "Wood Carvings by Alexander Calder." Calder writes to his parents about their thoughts on the exhibition. I'm glad you think the show looked well, for I was afraid they would clutter it up and detract from things. (CF, exhibition file; CF, Calder to parents, 5 March)

Spring: Sacha Stone, a German photographer, sees Calder perform Cirque Calder at the rue Cels studio. He suggests that Calder perform and exhibit in Berlin. (Calder 1966, 97)

15 March: The German Consulate, Paris, stamps Calder's passport. (AAA, passport)

16–17 March: Calder leaves Paris with Stone and takes a train to Berlin to make arrangements for an exhibition. (CF, Calder to parents, 17 March)

20–21 March: Calder returns to Paris to gather works to exhibit in Berlin. (CF, Calder to parents, 6 April)

22–23 March: Calder travels back to Berlin to prepare his exhibition. (CF, Calder to parents, 6 April)

1–15 April: Galerie Neumann-Nierendorf, Berlin, exhibits "Alexander Calder: Skulpturen aus Holz und aus Draht." Chantal Quenneville Hallis a French paintrix was there and I made a wire fly dangling from a beam attached to a collar. That was about my first jewelry. (Calder 1966, 98–99; CF, Calder 1955–56, 50) 

April: In Berlin, Dr. Hans Cürlis directs a short film of Calder creating Two Acrobats as part of the series Artists at Work. Calder makes a wire portrait of Cürlis. (CF, Calder to parents, before 8 May)

Before 8 May: I have had 2 large circus parties since coming back to Paris. At one of them we had Paul Fratellini, one of the famous clowns at the Cirque d’Hiver. It was quite a swell party—and I am making one of the toys in a size large enough for him to use in the Cirque d’Hiver. (CF, Calder to parents, before 8 May)

After 8 May: Calder exhibits a wire sculpture at the Salon des Tuileries, Paris. (CF, exhibition file)

Before 21 May: Pathé Cinema, Paris, produces a short film of Calder at work in his rue Cels studio. Calder invites Kiki de Montparnasse to model for a wire portrait during the filming. (Calder 1966, 99; New York Herald [Paris edition], 21 May)

Before 22 June: André Kertész photographs Calder at his rue Cels studio. (CF, photography file)

Before 22 June: Calder performs Cirque Calder in the studio of Tsuguharu Foujita, a painter and well-known denizen of Montparnasse. Foujita plays a drum to accompany Calder’s performance. Man Ray and Kiki are among the guests in attendance. (Illustrierte Zeitung, 29 August)

22 June: Calder embarks for New York on the De Grasse, bringing Cirque Calder with him. During the voyage, he meets Edward Holton James and his daughter, Louisa. So once on board the De Grasse, I started walking the deck. I overtook an elderly man and a young lady. I could only see them from the back, so I reversed my steps the better to see them face on. Upon coming abreast of them the next time around, I said, "Good evening!" And the man said to his daughter, "There is one of them already!" He was Edward Holton James, my future father-in-law. She was Louisa. Her father had just taken her to Europe to mix with the young intellectual elite. All she met were concierges, doormen, cab drivers—and finally me. (AAA, passport; Calder 1966, 101)

Before 28 August: Calder visits Louisa and her older sister, Mary, at Eastham on Cape Cod. Calder was a perfect guest. He mended everything in sight and kept us in gales of laughter all day long. (Calder 1966, 101; CF, Louisa to mother, 29 August)

28 August: Calder performs Cirque Calder at Hawes's couture house, 8 West Fifty-sixth Street, New York. (AAA, circus poster)

29 October: Calder performs Cirque Calder at art patron Mildred Harbeck's apartment, 306 Lexington Avenue, New York. (AAA, circus poster)

November–December: Calder stays with his friend, book designer Robert Josephy, at Beekman Place and Fiftieth Street. Josephy was very enthusiastic over my circus. This encouraged me and while at his house, I worked on it very hard. He helped me. We made the chariot race and the lion tamer, and it got to be quite a full blown circus, growing from two suitcases into five. (Calder 1966, 103)

30 November: After the New Yorker announces that performances of Cirque Calder can be arranged through the Junior League Entertainment Center at Saks Fifth Avenue, Calder is hired by Newbold Morris to perform in his Babylon, Long Island, home; Isamu Noguchi operates a phonograph providing the music. ("Sudden Brain Waves," 1929; CF, Calder 1955–56, 142)

2–14 December: Fifty-Sixth Street Galleries, New York, exhibits "Alexander Calder: Paintings, Wood Sculpture, Toys, Wire Sculpture, Jewelry, Textiles." Calder performs Cirque Calder at the show's vernissage on 1 December. (CF, exhibition file)

16 December: For her birthday, Calder gives Hawes a wire "chastity belt" that spells out her name along with the French café slogan "ouvert la nuit" (open at night). (Hawes 1938, 136; Berch 1988, 34–35)

Before 25 December: Calder creates his first formal mechanized sculpture, Goldfish Bowl, and presents it to his mother as a Christmas gift. For his father, he makes a wire fish. In a letter to Peggy, Nanette writes, He made me a fish tank of brass wire, with two fish that wiggle as you turn a crank made also of wire. Waves are indicated along the top. For your Dad a large fish that is now hanging from the electric light. Peggy, it is remarkable. One wire beginning at his tail, running along the backbone to the head where the eyes and mouth are faultlessly placed. Then the wire loops around the back bone as it travels back to form the other half of the tail. This is hard to describe, but it is really wonderful as is the fish bowl in which the fishes bend as tho [sic] swimming. (Hayes 1977, 225–26)

25 December: Calder performs Cirque Calder in the home of Aline Bernstein on Park Avenue. Noguchi is present, as is Thomas Wolfe, who later incorporates a wry fictionalized account of the event into his novel, You Can't Go Home Again. (Calder 1966, 106–107; Hayes 1977, 226)

Before 28 December: At a party thrown by Walter Damrosch at NBC Studios, Calder approaches Aline Fruhauf, the cartoonist for the magazine Top Notes, wearing "a curiously wrought ornament which seemed to be a bee or dragonfly of gold filament, perched where a shirt stud should be. Suddenly, he reached in his pocket, brought out a paper and a pencil and began to caricature the cartoonist." ("By Way of Mention," 1929)

31 December: Calder performs Cirque Calder on New Year's Eve at the home of Jack and Edith Straus on West Fifty-seventh Street, New York. (CF, Calder 1955–56, 142)

17 January–2 March: Two works by Calder are exhibited at the Salon de la Société des Artistes Indépendants, Paris. (CF, exhibition file)

Before 27 January: Calder stays in the apartment of his friend Paul Nitze at 112 East Fortieth Street. At Nitze's request, he performs Cirque Calder. (Calder 1966, 107; CF, Calder 1955–56, 110)

27 January–4 February: Harvard Society for Contemporary Art, Cambridge, Massachusetts, exhibits "Wire Sculpture by Alexander Calder." Calder performs Cirque Calder for the faculty and students on 31 January. (CF, exhibition file)

10 March: Calder sails for Spain on the Spanish freighter Motomar. The ship docks briefly in Málaga and Calder explores the town. Two days later, Calder debarks in Barcelona. I went to the Hotel Regina, in a little room up somewhere high. It was then I decided that I liked white walls and red tile flooring . . . I tried to find Miró, but I guess he was away in the country. I went to a bullfight, and then on to Paris by train. (Calder 1966, 108–110)

After 10 March: Calder rents a studio at 7 Villa Brune. (Calder 1966, 110)

May: Calder exhibits La Negresse in 11e Salon de l'Araignée at Galerie G. L. Manuel Frères, Paris. (CF, exhibition file)

After 23 May: Calder makes thirteen plaster sculptures and casts eight of them in bronze at the Fonderie Valsuani, Paris. There is a fine bronze foundry at the end of Villa Brune—so I am going to delve into cire perdue. (CF, Calder to parents, 23 May)

23 May–27 July: Calder receives an invitation from Rupert Fordham to sail to L'Île Rousse in Corsica. They visit Antoni and Calvi on the west coast. (Calder 1966, 110–12; CF, Calder to parents, 23 May, 27 July)

6 August: While in Calvi, Calder collects fragments of ancient pottery and fashions the pieces into a necklace.
I meant to write you a birthday letter two days ago, but I made you a necklace instead—having brought along pliers and wires, and found bits of things along the parapets of the citadel, to put into it . . . I have been making a lot more wire jewelry—and I think I'll really do something with it, eventually. (CF, Calder to mother, 6 August)

10 September: Calder performs Cirque Calder at 7 Villa Brune. For seating, he invites spectators to bring their own boxes. (CF, project file)

After 12 September: Louisa James visits Calder in Paris. (CF, Louisa to mother, 7 September)

October: In need of money to pay rent, Calder charges admission to performances of Cirque Calder. I bought planks, pinched some boxes, and made bleachers. I handled thirty people an evening on, I believe, four evenings. At the end of my professional run, the concierge came and said the proprietor who lived in the front could not get to sleep on account of the cymbals. (Calder 1966, 113–14)

14 October: On the advice of Frederick Kiesler, a Viennese architect, Calder invites Le Corbusier, Karl Einstein, Fernand Léger, Piet Mondrian, and Théo van Doesburg to a presentation of Cirque Calder at 7 Villa Brune. To avoid conflicts, Kiesler insists that Calder send a telegram inviting van Doesburg for the following night. (Calder 1966, 112–13; AAA, circus poster)

15 October: Van Doesburg and his wife, Pétronella [Nelly], attend a performance of Cirque Calder. I got more of a reaction from Doesburg than I had from the whole gang the night before. (Calder 1966, 112–13; AAA, circus poster)

Fall: Kiesler introduces Calder to composer Edgard Varèse and Calder makes a wire portrait of him. Varèse, who feels that his own compositions resonate with Calder's new abstract sculpture, becomes a frequent visitor to Calder's studio. (Calder 1966, 125; CF, Calder 1955–56, 78)

October: Accompanied by another American artist, William "Binks" Einstein, Calder visits Mondrian's studio at 26 rue de Départ. Already familiar with Mondrian's geometric abstractions, Calder is deeply impressed by the studio environment: It was a very exciting room. Light came in from the left and from the right, and on the solid wall between the windows there were experimental stunts with colored rectangles of cardboard tacked on. Even the victrola, which had been some muddy color, was painted red. I suggested to Mondrian that perhaps it would be fun to make these rectangles oscillate. And he, with a very serious countenance, said: "No, it is not necessary, my painting is already very fast." This one visit gave me a shock that started things. Though I had heard the word "modern" before, I did not consciously know or feel the term "abstract." So now, at thirty-two, I wanted to paint and work in the abstract. And for two weeks or so, I painted very modest abstractions. At the end of this, I reverted to plastic work which was still abstract. (Calder 1966, 113; CF, Calder 1955–56, 78)

25 October–24 November: Calder exhibits nine works, including Le lanceur de poids and Femme Nue, at the "Association Artistique les Surindépendants," Parc des Expositions, Porte de Versailles, Paris. (CF, exhibition file)

November: Thérèse Bonney photographs Calder in his studio at 7 Villa Brune. (NYPL, photography collection)

After 5 November: Calder exhibits jewelry at the Mansard Gallery, London. (CF, Calder to Thomson, 5 November)

After 6 November: Louisa James decides to marry Calder. I have just come home from a polo game with a not particularly entrancing young man, and I have decided that I am sick to death of going out with one person and another that don't interest me. I am sick of it chiefly because the only person that amuses me and has amused me for the last year and a half, is Sandy. The only thing to do to my mind is to make it permanent and get married, and the sooner the better . . . To me Sandy is a real person which seems to be a rare thing. He appreciates and enjoys the things in life that most people haven't the sense to notice. He has ideals, ambition, and plenty of common sense, with great ability. He has tremendous originality, imagination, and humor which appeal to me very much and which make life colorful and worthwhile. He enjoys working and works hard, and thus ends the summary of his character. (CF, Louisa to mother, after 6 November)

Winter: Calder makes a gold ring to present to Louisa James. I had known a little jeweler in Paris, Bucci, and he had helped me make a gold ring—forerunner of an array of family jewelry—with a spiral on top and a helix for the finger. I thought this would do for a wedding ring. But Louisa merely called this one her "engagement ring" and we had to go to Waltham, near by, and purchase a wedding ring for two dollars. (Calder 1966, 116)

2 December–20 January: Calder exhibits four wood sculptures, including Cow, in "Painting and Sculpture by Living Americans" at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. (CF, exhibition file)

17–22 December: Calder returns to New York on the Bremen. (Calder 1966, 114; AAA, postcard, Wiser to Calder)

1931

16 January: Calder performs Cirque Calder at the James's home in Concord, Massachusetts. (Calder 1966, 115)

17 January: Calder and Louisa James are married. The reverend who married us apologized for having missed the circus the night before. So I said: "But you are here for the circus today." (Calder 1966, 115)

Before 1 February: The Calders sail for Europe on the American Farmer. They return to live in Calder's studio at 7 Villa Brune. (Hayes 1977, 249–50; Calder 1966, 116)

February: The Abstraction-Création group is founded; members include Jean Arp, Robert Delaunay, William "Binks" Einstein, Jean Hélion, Mondrian, and Anton Pevsner. (Calder 1966, 114)

27 April–9 May: Calder's abstract work is presented for the first time in the exhibition "Alexandre Calder: Volumes–Vecteurs–Densités / Dessins–Portraits," at Galerie Percier, Paris. Léger writes in the introduction to the catalogue:
Eric Satie illustrated by Calder. Why not?
"It's serious without seeming to be."
Neoplastician from the start, he believed in the absolute of two colored rectangles. . . .
Looking at these new works—transparent, objective, exact—I think of Satie, Mondrian, Marcel Duchamp, Brancusi, Arp—these unchallenged masters of unexpressed and silent beauty. Calder is in the same family.
He is 100-percent American.
Satie and Duchamp are 100-percent French.
Where do they meet?
(CF, exhibition file)

27 April: Pablo Picasso arrives before the opening at Galerie Percier to preview the exhibition privately. He introduces himself to Calder. (CF, Calder 1955–56, 95)

2 May: The Calders move into a three-story house at 14 rue de la Colonie. Calder makes the top floor of his house his studio. (Calder 1966, 121; Hayes 1977, 252–53; AAA, taxi receipt)

May: Louisa buys a dog, a small Briard mix. She and Calder name him Feathers because of his wispy hair. (Calder 1966, 121–22; CF, Calder to parents, c. 16 June)

End of May: Mary Reynolds is up from Villefranche for a few weeks, so we are seeing a bit of her and Marcel Duchamp. (CF, Calder to parents, c. 5 June)

June: Calder accepts an invitation to join Abstraction-Création. (Calder 1966, 114; CF, Calder to parents, 1 July)

July: Calder's wire sculpture is included in an exhibition of Novembergruppe at Künstlerhaus, Berlin. (CF, exhibition file)

Before 12 July: Calder continues to expand the use of motion in his abstract sculpture. I felt that perhaps I was exactly a perfectionist: i.e. that who was I to decide that a thing should be just this way, or just that way—so I made one or 2 objects articulated, so that they could be in a number of positions. (CF, Calder 1955–56, 108)

12 July: Calder writes his parents of his new work: I have been making a few new abstractions which have certain movements combined with their other features. I think there is something in it that may be good. (CF, Calder to parents, 12 July) 

4 August–11 September: The Calders visit Palma de Mallorca, staying at the Hotel Mediterraneo. They call on the Juncosas, Pilar Miró's family. After a month in Paguera, they return to Paris. (CF, Calder to parents, 31 July, 18 September; Calder 1966, 122–23)

August: Harrison of Paris publishes Fables of Aesop, According to Sir Roger L'Estrange, containing fifty illustrations by Calder. (CF, project file)

29–30 October: Calder performs Cirque Calder in his studio, 14 rue de la Colonie. (FJM, Calder to Miró, 1931)

Fall: Using cranks and small electric motors, Calder concentrates on making mechanized abstract sculptures. (Calder 1966, 126)

Fall: Marcel Duchamp visits the studio at 14 rue de la Colonie again and sees Calder's latest works. There was one motor-driven thing, with three elements. The thing had just been painted and was not quite dry yet. When he put his hands on it, the object seemed to please him, so he arranged for me to show in Marie Cuttoli's Galerie Vignon, close to the Madeleine. I asked him what sort of a name I could give these things and he at once produced Mobile. In addition to something that moves, in French it also means motive. Duchamp also suggested that on my invitation card I make a drawing of the motor-driven object and print: CALDER/SES MOBILES. (Calder 1966, 127)

November: Calder selects a sculpture from among the works exhibited at Galerie Percier and donates it to the recently founded Miejskie Muzeum Historji i Sztuki (Muzeum Sztuki w Lodzi), in Lodz, Poland. The work is later lost during World War II. (Calder 1966, 118)

November: Calder exhibits with Abstraction-Création at Porte de Versailles, Paris, and performs Cirque Calder. (CF, Calder to parents, 1 July; Lipman 1976, 331)

Mid-November: The Calders visit Port-Blanc in the Côtes-du-Nord, Brittany. (Calder 1966, 125–26; CF, Louisa to mother, 30 November)

1932

Calder publishes "Comment réaliser l'art?" for the first issue of Abstraction-Création, Art Non Figuratif.
Out of volumes, motion, spaces bounded by the great space, the universe.
Out of different masses, light, heavy, middling—indicated by variations of size or color—directional line—vectors which represent speeds, velocities, accelerations, forces, etc. . . .—these directions making between them meaningful angles, and senses, together defining one big conclusion or many.
Spaces, volumes, suggested by the smallest means in contrast to their mass, or even including them, juxtaposed, pierced by vectors, crossed by speeds.
Nothing at all of this is fixed.
Each element able to move, to stir, to oscillate, to come and go in its relationships with the other elements in its universe.
It must not be just a fleeting moment but a physical bond between the varying events in life.
Not extractions,
But abstractions
Abstractions that are like nothing in life except in their manner of reacting
.
(Calder 1932)

15–28 January: Calder exhibits drawings in "Exposition de Dessins" at Galerie Vignon, Paris. (CF, exhibition file)

15 January–1 February: Calder exhibits two works in "'1940'" at Parc des Expositions, Porte de Versailles, Paris. (CF, exhibition file)

7–21 February: Calder exhibits in the Fifth Annual Exhibition of Modern French Painting at the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago. (CF, exhibition file)

12–20 February: "Calder: ses mobiles" is held at Galerie Vignon, Paris. (CF, exhibition file)

After 12 February: In response to Duchamp's term "mobile," Arp asks sarcastically, Well, what were those things you did last year [for Percier's]—stabiles? Calder adopts "stabile" to refer to his static works. (Calder 1966, 130)

20–22 February: Calder performs Cirque Calder in his studio, 14 rue de la Colonie. (AAA, circus poster)

8 March: Calder writes the statement “Que ça bouge: À propos des sculptures mobiles.”
The various objects of the universe may be constant, at times, but their reciprocal relationships always vary.
There are environments that appear to remain fixed whilst there are small occurrences that take place at great speed across them. They appear so only because one sees nothing but the mobility of the small occurrences.
We notice the movement of automobiles and beings in the street, but we do not notice that the earth turns. We believe that automobiles go at a great speed on a fixed ground; yet the speed of the earth’s rotation at the equator is 40,000 km every 24 hours.
As truly serious art must follow the greater laws, and not only appearances, I try to put all the elements in motion in my mobile sculptures.
It is a matter of harmonizing these movements, thus arriving at a new possibility of beauty.
(CF, Calder, unpublished manuscript)

12 March: In a letter to Kiesler, Calder describes the reaction to his mobiles. We had a lot of visitors—Léger, Picasso, Carl Einstein, Binks Einstein, Petro van Doesburg, Cocteau, Roux, etc.—who all were enthusiastic about "abstract sculptures which move" (toy elec. motors being used). There was only one dissenter . . . that was Mondrian. He said they weren't fast enough, and when I stepped on the gas, he said they still weren't fast enough, so I said I'd make one especially fast, to please him, and then he said that that wouldn't be fast enough—because the whole thing ought to be still. Now I feel that beauty of motion is a very real thing—unrelated to any definite machinery. Whether I've achieved it is, of course, another question. (CF, Calder to Kiesler, 12 March)

May: In preparation for their departure from Antwerp to New York on a Belgian freighter, the Calders rent their house to Gabrielle Buffet, the former wife of Francis Picabia. (Calder 1966, 136–37)

9 May: Calder introduces himself in writing to American art critic James Johnson Sweeney. About 3 or 4 months [ago] M. Fernand Léger came to my house in Paris to see my "mobiles"—abstract sculptures which move—and said he would like to bring you to have a look at them too . . . I am exposing a few of these "mobiles" at the Julien Levy Gallery 602 Madison Ave N.Y.C. and would be very pleased if you would come and see them. (JJS, Calder to Sweeney, 9 May)

12 May–11 June: "Calder: Mobiles / Abstract Sculptures" is held at the Julien Levy Gallery, New York. The exhibition announcement reprints Léger's introduction to Calder's 1931 Galerie Percier catalogue. (CF, exhibition file)

11 June: Before a group of reporters visiting his exhibition at Julien Levy Gallery, Calder demonstrates the motion in Two Spheres. This has no utility and no meaning. It is simply beautiful. It has great emotional effect if you understand it. Of course if it meant anything it would be easier to understand but it would not be worthwhile. (New York World-Telegram, 11 June)

Before 16 June: The Calders visit Louisa's parents in Concord. Calder performs Cirque Calder at the James's home. (CF, Calder 1955–56, 146; Concord Herald, 16 June)

11 July: While visiting Calder's parents in Richmond, Massachusetts, Calder performs Cirque Calder in an old barn that Stirling uses as a studio. Invitees include Nitze, Drew, and Josephy. (CF, Calder to Nitze, 11 July; CF, Calder 1955–56, 146)

Before 10 September: The Calders arrive in Barcelona after a fourteen-day passage on the Cabo Tortosa, Garcia and Díaz Spanish line. Following a stop in Málaga, they take a train from Barcelona to Tarragona. (Calder 1966, 138–40; FJM, Calder to Miró, 19 July)

12 September: The Calders arrive at the Miró farm in Montroig for an eight- to ten-day visit. During their stay, Calder performs Cirque Calder for the Mirós, their farmhands, and their neighbors. Miró recalls the event: He came to Montroig and brought the circus figures; he never stopped working on them. We organized a presentation for the local farmers who were very pleased with the spectacle of the wire performers. Later the Cirque was presented in galleries, but there in Montroig it was really a performance for the people. (Calder 1966, 139; Lanchner 1993, 330; Miró 1977, 114–15)

After 12 September: The Calders and Mirós visit Cambrils and Tarragona. (Calder 1966, 139)

Before 29 September: The Calders return to Barcelona and visit Gaudi's cathedral. Invited by the Amics de l'Art Nou, Calder performs Cirque Calder in the hall of the Grup d'Arquitects i Tecnics Catalans per al Progres de l'Arquitectura Contemporania (GATCPAC). Shortly thereafter, the Calders return to Paris. (Calder 1966, 140–41; Gasch 1932)

1933

19–31 January: Calder's sculptures are included in the group exhibition "Première série," organized by the Association Artistique Abstraction-Création, Paris. (CF, exhibition file)

29–30 January: The Calders take a train from Paris to Madrid, where they visit the Museo del Prado. (CF, Calder to Peggy, 2 February)

1–2 February: Works by Calder are presented at the Sociedad de Cursos y Conferencias, Residencia de Estudiantes de la Universidad de Madrid. Calder also performs Cirque Calder for the students. (AAA, Circus program; CF, Louisa to mother, 11 February)

11–12 February: Calder performs Cirque Calder in Barcelona. (CF, Louisa to mother, 11 February)

13 February: Miró arranges for an exhibition of drawings and sculpture by Calder at the Galería Syra, Barcelona. (CF, Louisa to mother, December 1932, 11 February)

16 February: The Calders travel to Rome to visit Louisa's godmother, "Tanta" Bullard. (CF, Louisa to mother, December 1932, 11 February)

10 March: The Calders return to Paris. (FJM, Calder to Miró, 15 March)

Spring: Calder constructs an interactive "performance" sculpture. I had a small ballet-object, built on a table with pulleys at the top of a frame. It was possible to move coloured discs across the rectangle, or fluttering pennants, or cones; to make them dance, or even have battles between them. Some of them had large, simple, majestic movements; others were small and agitated. (Calder 1937, 64; CF, Calder to Sweeney, 19 July 1934)

May: Calder meets Gala and Salvador Dalí in Paris. (Calder 1966, 142)

16–18 May: Galerie Pierre Colle, Paris, exhibits "Présentation des oeuvres récentes de Calder." Reviewing the exhibition, Paul Recht writes: The liberty of some of the ensembles is absolutely disconcerting: we see two balls, one little and one big, in turn fixed to wires of very different lengths that are themselves fixed to the two extremities of a balancing arm hung above the ground. The big ball is animated by a pendular and rotary movement; it leads the little one on unexpected evolutions that multiply by impact upon surrounding objects. They are extraordinary visual variations on the theme of calamity, by the means of gravity and centrifugal force. (CF, exhibition file; Recht 1933)

Spring: Louisa has a miscarriage. (Calder 1966, 142; JJS, Calder to Sweeney, 20 September 1934)

9–24 June: "Arp, Calder, Miró, Pevsner, Hélion, and Seligmann" is presented at Galerie Pierre, Paris; Anatole Jakovski writes the text for the catalogue. At Galerie Pierre, Calder meets Sweeney, perhaps for the first time. Sweeney becomes an avid proponent of Calder's work. (Calder 1966, 148; CF, exhibition file; Lipman 1976, 331)

Before 22 June: Miró stays with the Calders at 14 rue de la Colonie while he prepares for his own "Exposition surréaliste" at Galerie Pierre Colle. (Lanchner 1993, 330–31, 439)

24 June: Miró presents the Calders with a large blue painting as a going-away present. (Lanchner 1993, 330–31; CF, object file)

6 July: The Calders give up their house in Paris and return to New York in the company of Hélion. There were so many articles in the European press about war preparations that we thought we had better head for home. (CF, Calder to Cooper, 2 July; Calder 1966, 143–44)

July–August: Louisa and Calder visit Louisa's parents in Concord and Calder's parents in Richmond, Massachusetts. They search for a new house along the Housatonic River in Massachusetts, while also considering real estate in Tarrytown and New City, New York; Yaphank, Long Island; and Westport and Sandy Hook, Connecticut. (Calder 1966, 143–44)

12–27 August: Among the fifteen Calder sculptures on display in "Modern Painting and Sculpture" at the Berkshire Museum, Pittsfield, Massachusetts, are Dancing Torpedo Shape, Nymph, and one of the wire Josephine Bakers. Calder writes a statement for the catalogue. Why not plastic forms in motion? Not a simple translatory or rotary motion, but several motions of different types, speeds and amplitudes composing to make a resultant whole. Just as one can compose colors, or forms, so one can compose motions. (CF, exhibition file)

August: The Calders visit a real-estate agency in Danbury, Connecticut. After viewing several properties, they discover a dilapidated eighteenth-century farmhouse in Roxbury, Connecticut; both Louisa and Calder claim to have been the first to exclaim, "That's it!" They purchase it, and Calder converts the adjoining icehouse into a modest dirt-floored studio. (Calder 1966, 143; CF, mortgage records)

6–28 April: "Mobiles by Alexander Calder" is presented at Pierre Matisse Gallery, New York. Sweeney writes the preface for the catalogue: The evolution of Calder's work epitomizes the evolution of plastic art in the present century. Out of a tradition of naturalistic representation, it has worked by a simplification of expressional means to a plastic concept which leans on the shapes of the natural world only as a source from which to abstract the elements of form. (Calder 1966, 148; CF, exhibition file)

Summer: In Roxbury, Calder works prolifically on "panels" and "frames"; these sculptures consist of moving abstract forms set in front of colored plywood panels or within boxlike frames. The works relate to the idea of three-dimensional paintings in motion that Calder proposed to Mondrian during his 1930 visit. (Sweeney 1951, 38; CF, object files)

8–23 September: Calder exhibits three mobile works in the Twenty-sixth Annual Stockbridge Exhibition held at the Berkshire Playhouse, Stockbridge, Massachusetts. 2 of them are for the garden, wind propelled—and (I think), good. (New York Times, 9 September; CF, Calder to Sweeney, 30 August)

1936

Julien Levy’s Surrealism, the first English text on the subject, is published in New York. Levy writes:
It is impossible accurately to estimate the relative importance of the younger surrealists, until aided by the perspective of time. Outstanding among the newcomers seem to be Gisèle Prassinos, Richard Oelze, Hans Bellmer, Leonor Fini, Alexander Calder, and Joseph Cornell . . . Calder is sometimes surrealist and sometimes abstractionist. It is to be hoped that he may soon choose in which direction he will throw the weight of his talents. (Levy 1936, 28)

10–29 February: "Mobiles and Objects by Alexander Calder" is held at the Pierre Matisse Gallery, New York. (CF, exhibition file)

As the singers stand still at either end of the stage, Calder's simple geometric objects enact a series of movements across the stage. Later that night the festival continues with Paper Ball: Le Cirque des Chiffoniers, designed by Pavel Tchelitchew and featuring thirteen processions of paper costumes created especially for the event. For Soby's procession, Calder contributes A Nightmare Side Show, a suite of animal costumes designed to wear over evening clothes. (CF, project file)

23 February: Graham premieres Horizons at the Guild Theatre in New York City. The program note reads: The "Mobiles," designed by Alexander Calder, are a new conscious use of space. They are employed in Horizons as visual preludes to the dances in this suite. The dances do not interpret the "Mobiles," nor do the "Mobiles" interpret the dances. They are employed to enlarge the sense of horizon. (CF, project file; "Martha Graham and Dance Group," 1936)

May: Calder and Miró visit the Spanish Pavilion under construction at the 1937 World's Fair site in Paris. Calder meets the pavilion's architects, Josép Lluís Sert and Luis Lacasa.

(Calder 1966, 158; Freedberg 1986, 504–505)

11 December: A review of the exhibition at the Mayor Gallery notes, Calder's jewelry is as pretty as his mobiles—some of it too is "mobile"—and often more seriously lovely. If the lady of fashion has the wit to see it, she may find that pieces of human ingenuity make rather more distinguished ornaments than Cartier's portable currency. (CF, exhibition file; New Statesman and Nation, 11 December)

14 December: In reference to the Mayor Gallery exhibition, Calder writes, The show is going quite well . . . Sold 3 objects so far, & a lot of jewelry. Buyers of his jewelry include prominent characters of London society, including Lady Clark, wife of London's National Gallery director, Kenneth Clark. (CF, Calder to Sweeney, 14 December; CF, exhibition file, unsigned newspaper clipping from Sketch, 8 December)

22 December: An unsigned review of the Mayor Gallery in Vogue declares, Calder . . . occasionally makes jewellery of great charm and originality.

Calder is invited to make sculptures for an African habitat designed by Oscar Nitzschke for the Bronx Zoo. Calder conceives of treelike sculptures to be made in steel so they can withstand the abuse of the wild animals. Although the habitat is never realized, Calder creates four models for the project: Sphere Pierced by Cylinders, Four Leaves and Three Petals, Leaves and Tripod, and The Hairpins. (New York Times, 24 October)

As she wrote to Calder, I am a little concerned about the lack of "jewels" on the horizon at present . . . You will have to do prodigious work the next two months. Remember the small, well fashioned, wearable ones are what we will cash in on. (CF, Willard to Calder, 1 October)

29 October: Calder sends jewelry to Charlotte Whitney Allen in Rochester, who plans to display it for the Christmas season. The jewelry is here and it is too beautiful.

(VVV 1942)

July–November: Calder is classified 1-A (top eligibility) by the army, though he is never drafted. He studies industrial camouflage at New York University and applies for a commission in camouflage work with the Marine Corps: Although the army says that the painter is of little or no use in modern camouflage, I feel that this is not so, and that the camoufleur is still a painter, but on an immense scale . . . and in a negative sense (for instead of creating, he demolishes a picture and reduces it to nil . . . ). (Calder 1966, 183; CF, Calder application to the Marine Corps, 21 September)

14 October–7 November: The Coordinating Council of French Relief Societies sponsors the exhibition "First Papers of Surrealism" at the Whitelaw Reid Mansion, New York, organized by Breton and Duchamp.

29 September 1943–16 January 1944: The Museum of Modern Art, New York, presents "Alexander Calder: Sculptures and Constructions," curated by Sweeney and Duchamp. Calder writes, Simplicity of equipment and an adventurous spirit in attacking the unfamiliar or unknown are apt to result in a primitive and vigorous art. Somehow the primitive is usually much stronger than art in which technique and flourish abound. Originally scheduled to close on 28 November 1943, the exhibition is extended to 16 January 1944 due to public demand. (CF, exhibition file)

Before November: President Gerald Ford offers the Medal of Freedom to Calder. Calder replies, I was pleased to receive your invitation last week, but felt I could not accept in a case where my acceptance would imply my accord with the harsh treatment meted out to conscientious objectors and deserters. As from the start I was against the war and now am working with "amnesty" I didn't feel I could come to Washington. When there will be more justice for these men I will feel differingly [sic].Ford posthumously awards Calder the Medal of Freedom. Louisa Calder declines to attend the ceremony: Freedom should lead to amnesty after all these years and it doesn't seem as though it were going to happen. Freedom means freedom for all.
