Found within this collection is Edith Rossiter Bevan's collection of artists' letters. The letters are addressed to Anna Parmly Paret (a cousin of Ehrick Rossiter), journalist Elizabeth Jordan, and Greta Smith. Included are individual letters from Alexander Archipenko, J. Carroll Beckwith, Reginald Birch, Emma M. Cadwalader-Guild, Andre Castaigne, Fanny Cory, Kenyon Cox, Frank Craig, Charles Dana Gibson, Jay Hambridge, Henry Hutt, A. J. Keller, Rockwell Kent, Fiske Kimball, David Scott Moncrieff, H. Siddons Mowbray, Peter Newell, Rhoda Holmes Nicholls, Ralph M. Pearson, Frederic Remington, Otto Soglow, and Elizabeth Whitmore. Many of these letters concern current projects and illustrations for publications, or answers to requests for information. It appears that the letters were collected by Paret, Jordan, and Smith during the course of their work and were later transferred to Edith Rossiter Bevan.
