Summary:
Scrapbook is fragile, only two loose photographs have been scanned.
Title placard inside scrapbook reads: Cleo Dorman's collection.
Scrapbook contains items from Cleo's time as an artists' model at Cranbrook, the Art Institute of Chicago, the AIC Summer School in Saugatack, Michigan, and the Art Students League. It also concerns her personal art collection, and clippings about art modelling. Among the contents are clippings, photographs, articles about Cleo Dorman and the institutions where she worked, and a program for Charles White's memorial service.
The two scanned photographs depict Dorman posing, possibly for a class of Louie Ritman at the Art Institute of Chicago (a nearby notation reads "posing for Louie Ritman's class - 1942"). They measure 9 x 9 cm. each, and are stamped on verso: Samuel Woolf; 1646 E. 54th St.; Chicago 15, Ill.
