Biographical / Historical:
Hale Aspacio Woodruff (1900-1980) was a painter, muralist, and arts educator. His most well-known works are the Amistad murals, painted between 1939 and 1940 for Talladega College's Savery Library.

Woodruff was born in Cairo, Illinois, and grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. He studied at the John Herron Art Institute in Indianapolis, and at the Art Institute of Chicago. After winning an award from the Harmon Foundation, he traveled to Paris and attended the Academie Moderne and the Academie Scandinave. He also spent a summer studying mural painting in Mexico with Diego Rivera.

In 1931, Woodruff established one of the earliest art departments at a Black college at Atlanta University – teaching classes at the University's Laboratory High School, Morehouse College, and Spelman College as well. He also established the Atlanta Annuals, one of the earliest national exhibition opportunities for African American artists. In 1946 he moved to New York and taught in the art department at New York University until his retirement in 1968.
Related Materials:
Also found in the Archives of American Art is an oral history interview with Hale Woodruff conducted by Al Murray, November 18, 1968.

The Archives of American of Art also holds material lent for microfilming (reel 4222), the majority of which was included in subsequent donations. Loaned materials not donated at a later date remain with the lender and are not described in the container listing of this finding aid.

Freer, Charles Lang, 1856-1919  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1901-1921
Scope and Contents note:
Inventories compiled by Freer and assistants to catalogue his collection of art objects, books, documents, and sundries, particularly in preparation for the formal acceptance of his gift by the United States government, and the distribution of his personal estate. Extant lists [mostly typescripts], and bound volumes [partially handwritten], are generally arranged by form of material or country of origin. Cataloguing may have included number assigned, country of origin, title, artist, a brief description, dimensions, cost, and provenance information such as from whom the object was purchased, where it was found, or its disposition. Many of the inventories have been annotated, sometimes by Freer Gallery staff, with subsequent series of accession numbers for the objects.

Note: Inventories labeled "reserved" may have regarded those objects set aside for further consideration as possible gifts to the Smithsonian Institution.
