Scope and Contents:

This small collection consists primarily of letters to Partridge from artists, political figures, art historians, and authors; drafts and typescripts of Partridge's poems; and two clippings about Partridge's sculpture.
Arrangement:
Due to the small size of the collection the papers are arranged as one series.
Biographical / Historical:
Parisian-born sculptor, author, and poet, William Ordway Partridge (1861-1930) was known for his sculptures of famous writers, artists, political figures, and poets.

Partridge attended Adelphi Academy and Columbia College in New York and then traveled abroad to study in Florence, Rome, and Paris. He exhibited at the Paris Salon in his early twenties before returning to New York to focus on sculpture, lecturing, poetry reading, and writing and publishing his own poetry and articles on art. In addition to busts of writers and artists and many distinguished New York figures, he executed a large bronze of Alexander Hamilton in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.
Provenance:
The collection was donated in 1965 by Mrs. Jacob B. Shohan, and in 2019 by Mary K. McGuigan and John F. McGuigan Jr., art historians and collectors in Milford, Pennsylvania.

Extent:
0.2 Linear feet
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1879-1920
1957
Scope and Contents:
Letters to Partridge mainly relate to Partridge's sculpture, invitations to events, and responses to invitations sent by Partridge. They include requests to visit his studio and view works in progress. Also found are two letters from Robert C. Winthrop, and Samuel Timmins to others which were probably collected by Partridge for the autographs of Winthrop and Timmins. Additional correspondents are noted in the container listing.

Writings by Partridge include loose drafts of his poems and a typescript for a book of a collection of his poems. Writings by others include a draft of an essay "The Actor's Profession" and galley proofs of an untitled poem by Henry Austin, dedicated to James Gillespie Blaine. One news clipping from 1891 relates to Partridge's statue of Alexander Hamilton; another from 1957 recounts the discovery of two busts by Partridge during the demolition of the Manhattan Storage and Warehouse building.
Arrangement:
The papers are arranged by material type. Letters to Partridge are arranged alphabetically. Unless otherwise noted, all senders wrote 1 letter each.
