“In 1962, Johnson initiated a series of mailings instructing the recipient to add something to the work received and send it on to someone else, who would follow the same instructions. That same year, he founded the New York Correspondence School, a fictional entity that served as a conceptual base for his mailings over the next three decades.” Marcin, Mauricio: Mail Art from Mexico (via the world): An Erratic Investigation, in: post.at.moma.org

"Ed Plunkett baptizes the New York Correspondence School, by now an international network of individuals who exchange missives and mail art through the postal system. Johnson renames it the New York Correspondance (sic) School (NYCS) and alternates the spelling (Correspondence and Correspondance)." Chronology, in rayjohnsonestate.com
