Date:
1925-circa 1978
Scope and Contents:
Biographical material includes a document (in Austrian) issued by the Mexican Consulate in Vienna for d'Harnoncourt's departure for Mexico, stamped December 15, 1925.

Also found are pages from an appointment book from 1932 that provide scattered notes on d'Harnoncourt's professional and personal obligations on dates throughout the year, which included traveling with the Mexican Art exhibition to Chicago, St. Louis, Houston, El Paso, and Mexico.

The series also includes a set of index cards, and some "Notes for Family" prepared by Sarah d'Harnoncourt and referred to by her in a 1978 letter in Series 2: Correspondence. The letter explains that they were part of an effort to provide additional context to the papers for researchers and family before sending them to the Archives of American Art. The cards index references to d'Harnoncourt in publications, and published writings by d'Harnoncourt, amongst other things.

Date:
1929-1981
Scope and Contents:
The earliest correspondence and memoranda in this series relate to the Mexican Arts exhibition, and include a copy of a letter, and an original letter, from Dr. Atl. The 1930-1932 folder consists of copies of letters of appreciation to d'Harnoncourt and reviews of the exhibition translated into Spanish to send to the Mexican government, with a list of the letters and reviews contained therein.

The 1932-1939 correspondence and memoranda document d'Harnoncourt's work for the "Art in America" program; the concerted effort on behalf of the Indian Arts and Crafts Board to engage d'Harnoncourt's services at the outset of the Board; and negotiations between Sarah Lawrence College and the Department of the Interior over a schedule that would allow the Department of the Interior to employ d'Harnoncourt part-time as Assistant to the General manager of the Indian Arts and Crafts Board. The folder also includes travel authorizations for d'Harnoncourt in this capacity.

Also found is a letter from The Coast magazine, and a copy of the issue referenced in the letter, that includes an article about the Indian Arts and Crafts exhibition (1939) at Treasure Island, San Francisco.

Correspondence from 1940 to mid-1944 is primarily official memoranda regarding d'Harnoncourt's performance and appointment terms on the Indian Arts and Crafts Board, including memos relating to his resignation as General Manager in 1944. In response to a desire to retain d'Harnoncourt as a member of the Board, which is documented here, he subsequently served as Chairman of the Board for seventeen years.

1962-1968 correspondence consists of a 1962 letter to d'Harnoncourt from Maria Krisztinkovich, enclosing a copy of her book on Hungarian glazed stoneware, and d'Harnoncourt's letter of thanks. Also found are copies of three condolence letters to Sarah d'Harnoncourt following d'Harnoncourt's death.

Posthumous correspondence from 1975-1981 relates to inquiries made, and assistance provided, by Sarah d'Harnoncourt, primarily in relation to d'Harnoncourt's activities on the Indian Arts and Crafts Board. It includes correspondence with Carol K. Rachlin and Alice Marriott in regard to their research for a book on the history of the Board, and a photocopy of a memorandum (July 21, 1936) from John Oliver, then Commissioner of Indian Affairs, stating his unequivocal belief in the importance of employing d'Harnoncourt for the Board: "From any point of view, and whether whole or part time, the Arts and Crafts Board needs him. No one else possesses his experience or his many-sided equipment. We need him at the start when we are laying foundations."
