Series I.  Correspondence, 1915-1959, undated

Physical Description: 0.52 linear feet 2 boxes

Scope and Content Note

Includes approximately 300 business and personal letters arranged alphabetically by correspondent with unidentified correspondents at the end. Letters to and from individuals, art institutions, and publications pertain primarily to the acquisition, exhibition, and publication of Outerbridge's work. A 1942 letter from Beaumont Newhall, for example, recognizes the gift of three Outerbridge carbro prints as the Museum of Modern Art’s first acquisition of color photography (March 6); the director of the Cleveland Museum of Art in a letter the following year requests on behalf of his museum’s board that Outerbridge substitute "some other subject" for "the Nude" offered as a donation by Outerbridge’s friend and collector Vivian Allen (January 13, 1943). Other topics include financial and legal matters, awards, memberships, and employment inquiries. Also included are condolences and correspondence with Outerbridge's widow, Lois, concerning the final dispensation of his estate.
