Scope and Content Note:
The records of Chaloner Prize Foundation measure 4.0 linear feet and date from 1915 to 1974. The records consist of the files of the two Secretaries, George F. Lewis and S. LeRoy French, and four of the Trustees, Charles Platt, William Rand, Olin Dows, and William Platt. Included within these records are correspondence, lists, files on award recipients, and three scrapbooks maintained by Dows. Also found within the collection are legal records, printed material, and financial records.

The Secretaries' Files contain backgroundpapers and photographs of John Chaloner's home in Virginia. Early correspondence includes letters from John Chaloner to Foundation officials on a variety of issues concerning his personal history and legal battles, personal perceptions regarding jurying and applicants, as well as observations about award amounts and duration of grants. Correspondence informed trustees of business transactions, legal matters, and awardee activities. Also found in this series are examples of competition circulars for other organizations, distribution lists, and rough drafts for the Paris Prize announcements.

Trustees' files are composed primarily of the records of William Platt, but include earlier minutes and bylaws. Within the correspondence are letters and telegrams to awardees. Of particular note are scrapbooks compiled by Trustee Olin Dows on the history of grants, covering activities between 1917 and 1960. A few correspondence files from Lawton Parker, Charles Platt and William and Robert Rand can be found here as well.

Legal records document the New York Supreme Court Judgment of 1917 and the transfer of assets to the American Academy in Rome. Printed material includes a poster; applications, notices, regulations and conditions for prizes; booklets on the activities of the Foundation; and information from other artist organizations. Financial records contain documentation on early expenses and income; receipts and transmittals; and scattered financial holdings statements.

Historical Note:
The Chaloner Prize Foundation was founded in 1890 by John Armstrong Chaloner in New York, NY, for the purpose of granting awards to individual artists for study of art in Paris. Initially known as the "Paris Prize Fund," held by the United States Trust Company of New York, the fund relied on contributions from art patrons such as Henry and Arthur Astor Carey. Due to personal troubles Chaloner could not manage the account and passed power of attorney to others. By 1917 the Trust had made only two grants. That year Chaloner brough suit against Bankers Trust Company and "others" in order to incorporate the foundation. The subsequent legal judgement by the New York State Supreme Court created the grant-administering institution.

Following the 1917 reorganization, the Foundation's first award for Paris Prize was $4,800 plus travel expenses to John Ferris Connah for five years (1921-1926). Subsequent awards were $6,000 with grantees selected every other year. With the beginning of World War II, Europe was not longer a secure place for visiting artists, and the 1939 and 1940 award recipients studied in Mexico. No further grants were given until 1948.

Lawton S. Parker, Charles A. Platt, and William Rand, Jr. were appointed to the first board of trustees. George F. Lewis was appointed as Foundation clerk. He maintained correspondence, set up board meetings, and communicated with artists as needed. When Charles Platt and William Rand, Jr. died in the early 1930s, they were succeeded by their sons, William Platt and Robert Rand. Shortly after Lewis resigned in 1938, S. LeRoy French secretary.

In 1969 national legislation regarding tax-exempt foundations made the future increasingly uncertain for trusts like the Chaloner Prize Foundation. In 1973 a final grant was made to the American Academy in Rome to be used for a fellowship in sculpture. In 1974 the foundation was dissolved and all assets and records were transferred to the American Academy in Rome.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records that document the programs created and organized by the Research and Scholars Center. The records in this collection are partial; an earlier set of records can be found in Record Unit 596. Included among the programs documented is the lunchbag program which serves as a venue for art historians, archivists, and other active members of the American art community to share research, present findings, and discuss the state of the field. The records for the lunchbag seminars in this collection begin in September 1976; however, the program was initiated in September 1970 at the National Collection of Fine Arts (NCFA, later the Smithsonian American Art Museum) by Lois Marie Fink, Coordinator of Research, at the behest of the museum's director, Joshua C. Taylor. In the early 1980s, the program was under the direction of the Office of Research and Professional Training, then jointly led by Lois M. Fink, Curator of Research, and Patricia H. Chieffo, Chair of Professional Training Programs (later Intern Programs). In 1984 the Office of Research and Fellowships (later separate from Intern Programs) took over full responsibility for the program. In 1988 the program began being co-sponsored with the Archives of American Art, and then in 1993 the National Portrait Gallery joined in sponsoring. Also included is Information regarding the fellows' lecture series, which originated at NCFA in 1970, and occurs annually in the spring.

This accession also includes ART NET which stood for American ART NETwork, an internal newsletter that reported on the office's activities, and was distributed to the alumni of the museum's fellowship program, scholars, and staff in order to keep them abreast of the current opportunities at the museum as well as the progress of its fellows.

Lastly, beginning in 1974 the museum began holding annual one or two-day symposia to further scholarship in American art. The first of these symposia (1974-1980) were co-sponsored with the University of Delaware.

This accession includes records from when the office was known as the Office of Research and Professional Training and the Office of Research and Fellowships, and from when the museum was known as the National Collection of Fine Arts (NCFA) and the National Museum of American Art (NMAA).

Materials include correspondence, memoranda, program schedules, advertisement flyers, symposia records, and newsletters.
