circa 1927-2012, undated (bulk 1951-2008)
Creator:
d'Harnoncourt, Anne, 1943-2008, cre
Extent: 31.5 linear feet
Art to Anne d'Harnoncourt (1943-2008) was both a professional and personal passion. Best recognized for her twenty-five year tenure as director of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, d'Harnoncourt collaborated with local, national and international people and organizations, to keep art--and all the arts--relevant and essential in building and bridging communities. Most of the material comprising the Anne d'Harnoncourt Papers traces her professional development in and away from the Museum and consists primarily of correspondence, press clippings, photographs of works of art and events, draft lectures, notes, ephemera and a number of certificates, citations and object awards. Several files of photos and papers pertain to her husband and Museum colleague, Joseph J. Rishel. Family papers and photographs and school records comprise her personal papers. Also made part of the Anne d'Harnoncourt Papers is the significant documentation of the worldwide reaction to her unexpected death on June 1, 2008. Materials consist of condolence messages to the Museum and to Rishel, obituaries and other writings, posthumous honors, as well as working papers and ephemera pertaining to the various memorial services and later tributes. An audio recording of one of the 2008 services and a video recording of a long-time friend's recollections recorded in 2009 are also included. (View full finding aid.)

1894, 1903, 1915-1986
Creator:
Whitney Museum of American Art, cre
Goodrich, Lloyd, 1897-, cre
Goodrich, Edith Havens, cre
Extent: 42 linear feet
The Lloyd and Edith Havens Goodrich, Whitney Museum of American Art, Record of Works by Thomas Eakins consists mainly of typescript and manuscript papers, correspondence, and a variety of research and reference materials pertaining to Lloyd Goodrich's major published and unpublished works on American artist Thomas Eakins. This collection documents more than 50 years of Eakins scholarship, during which Goodrich published "Thomas Eakins: his life and work" (1933) and the revised and augmented monograph, "Thomas Eakins" (1982). A revision of the 1933 publication's catalogue raisonne section, intended as a separate volume, never reached the final stages before Goodrich's death, but represents a significant volume of material. Of note is correspondence with Thomas Eakins's widow, Susan Macdowell Eakins; Goodrich's transcriptions of Thomas Eakins's own correspondence, much of which is now lost; and his interview notes with Eakins's sitters, students, friends, and relatives, including Charles Bregler, Charence W. Cranmer, Frances Eakins Crowell, Mary Elizabeth Hallock Greenewalt, Elizabeth Macdowell Kenton, Frank B. A. Linton, Samuel Murray, Mary Adeline Williams, Lucy Landon Williams Wilson, and Francis Joseph Ziegler. (View full finding aid.)
