Scope and Contents note:
This series contains a small amount of scattered documentation of Fred Ball's life and three folders of material relating specifically to Ball's father, F. Carlton Ball, his mother, Kathryn Uhl Ball, and his grandfather, George Uhl. One additional folder contains records of an Altar Show Tribute titled "Fred the Glad" by Jean C. Roach in 2005.

Ball's papers include a copy of his influential text on enameling Experimental Techniques in Enameling, a vita of his career compiled in 2001 by Lois and David Warren, memorial resolutions passed in his honor, and birth and death certificates.

News clippings include newspaper and magazine articles written about Ball and his work, including tributes to him after his death. The clippings are an excellent source of information about Ball's significant achievements over the course of his career.

Writings include enameling notes, a partial draft of Experimental Techniques in Enameling, and a copy of an article by Ball, in addition to his work of art commission agreement and a reference from Phillip L. Isenberg.

"Tributes to Fred Uhl Ball - September, 1985" is the guest book for the one-man show at Artists Contemporary Gallery that Ball was preparing for when he was attacked in 1985. The book is signed with messages from people who attended the exhibition and also includes signatures of people who attended a memorial service for Ball on January 3, 1986. The folder contains an announcement for the exhibition and a copy of the program from the memorial service.

Papers of F. Carlton Ball and Kathryn Uhl Ball include photographs of each, news clippings, a letter from F. Carlton Ball to his son, an exhibition announcement for F. Carlton Ball, a letter of recommendation from Lyonel Feininger for Kathryn Uhl Ball, her résumé, photographs of her artwork, and a program from her memorial service. Also found is an October 1985 letter from Kathryn Uhl Ball to Lois and David Warren following her son's hospitalization describing to his condition and the process of working with him in the hospital to continue his work to his specifications. Papers of George Uhl consist of a program for an exhibition at E. B. Crocker Art Gallery in 1945, featuring Uhl's metal work and ceramics by Kathryn and Carlton Ball. There is also a photograph of a silver punch bowl, ladle and cups by George Uhl.
