The papers of art history professor and collector Eugene Carroll (1931-2016) measure 1.8 linear feet and date from 1955-2015. The collection documents Carroll's interest in particular artists as a historian, a collector, and in a few instances, a friend. Carrol maintained a decades-long correspondence with artists Jacqueline Gourevitch and Marcia Marcus, and dozens of letters, postcards, and photographs in the artists files document those relationships. The collection contains a few published audiovisual CDs and DVDs and one sound cassette pertaining to the artists. Scant material relates to Carroll's tenure at Vassar College, and no material is found regarding Carroll's chief research interest, Rosso Fiorentino.
