Reels 885-887 contain 25 diaries, August 15, 1881-October 20, 1928, some containing illustrations by Henri. Most well covered are the late 1880s and 1890 including entries on Henri's studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and in Paris, his instructors Thomas Anshutz, Thomas Hovenden and Adolphe Bouguereau, and fellow students A. Stirling Calder, Edward Redfield, Charles Grafley, and others, Henri's activities in anti-Academy movements between 1902-1912, the exhibition of The Eight, the Independants show of 1910, the MacDowell Club, the founding of the Association of American Painters and Sculptors, and his later, less active years.

Biography Note:
Robert Henri (1865-1929) was a painter and instructor in New York, N.Y.
Provenance:
The diary/sketchbook, August 29-September 27, 1891, was received through purchase in 1991 from Weschler's Auction House in Washington, D.C. with funds from the Joseph Coudon VII Memorial Fund, established by Katherine H. Coudon in memory of her son. It was originally from the estate of Robert Henri and in a private collection from 1969 to 1991. Separated materials were loaned for microfilming, including those on reels 885-887 which were lent by Mrs. Janet LeClair, the widow of John LeClair, nephew of Henri's sister-in-law, Violet Organ. Organ inherited these papers and planned on using them in a biography of Henri which was never written. The papers passed to John LeClair upon Organ's death in 1959 and subsequently donated to Yale University. Organ donated other Henri papers, including correspondence, notes, notebooks, photographs and other manuscript material to Yale University's Beinecke Library in the 1960s. The diary on reel 1654 was lent by Dr. Robert Gatewood, a cousin of Robert Henri, who reported that he had at one time possessed several of Henri's illustrated boyhood stories and other diaries which were all destroyed in a fire.
