Scope and Contents note:
This subseries consists mainly of typewritten letters with occasional attachments, announcements and invitations, and cablegrams. Correspondence is in French, but the content of the letters appears to reflect the ongoing art dealing transactions between Bernheim-Jeune and de Hauke & Co. Researchers may find particularly interesting a contract that details the 1926 arrangement between de Hauke & Co. and Bernheim-Jeune that entitled de Hauke to serve as its exclusive representative in the United States and Canada. The material is arranged chronologically.
Arrangement note:
In many of the folders records are in reverse chronological order. This series has been scanned in entirety.
