Miller, Dorothy Canning, 1904-2003  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1956-1981
Scope and Contents:
Miller's consulting work with Blanchette Rockefeller (Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, III) and David and Peggy Rockefeller is documented here. Files relating to Blanchette Rockefeller primarily concern her purchases from the Museum of Modern Art's 1965 exhibition The New Japanese Painting and Sculpture.

Miller's notes and correspondence with David and Peggy Rockefeller are about her suggestions for acquisitions. Of particular interest is Miller's 1976 letter to David Rockefeller in which she recalls her first encounter with Morris Graves and seeing his artwork for the first time. Rockefeller purchased Graves's painting Shore Birds in 1977.

Also found here is correspondence relating to David Rockefeller's acquisitions from the Edith G. Halpert collection sold at auction in 1973 by Parke-Bernet. Additional files document Miller's research into acquisitions of folk art for the Rockefellers and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Collection. Additional documentation of Miller's work for David Rockefeller in relation to the Rockefeller University Collection is found in the next subseries.
