Personal business records primarily document Ross's business relationships with weaving workshops and art galleries. Included are extensive correspondence, agreements, and financial documents from Atelier Raymond Picaud, Pinton atelier, and Edinburgh Tapestry Company (Dovecot Studios). Also found are extensive records with Pace Editions, the major sales agent of Gloria Ross tapestries. Other records include commission ideas, inventories of works, sales records, and travel documents. Also of note is business correspondence with tapestry producer Yvette Conquil-Prince. Researchers should note that much of the documentation in this series is in French.
