Family Papers

Collection Creator:
Foster Brothers (Boston, Mass.)  Search this
Extent:
6 Folders (Box 10)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1875-1973
Scope and Contents note:
Family papers consist of a small number of personal papers of Foster Brothers founders, John Roy and Stephen Bartlett Foster, and also of Helen Foster Osborne (John's daughter). A letter from Edward Everett Hale, 1889, accepting an invitation addressed to Mr. Foster could have been intended for either Stephen or John Foster. Also included are a silhouette of John R. Foster cut by Doris Burdick, and his personal account book with some brief diary entries that pre-date the establishment of Foster Brothers by more than a decade. Of particular interest is Helen Foster Osborne's 1973 reminiscence of having her portrait painted by William Paxton in 1923. Helen Foster Osborne's correspondence with Ernest Donnelley, post-dating the closing of Foster Brothers, concerns the sale of printing plates and dies from the miniature reproduction business.

Weir Family Papers

Collection Creator:
Weir family  Search this
Extent:
0.8 Linear feet (Boxes 1-2, OVs 3-4)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1809-circa 1961
bulk 1830-1920
Scope and Contents:
Letters to John F. Weir form the bulk of the series. Of particular note are letters which provide insight into the minds of some of the most important landscape and impressionist artists of the late-19th century and evoke a sense of the waning years of the Hudson River School and the efforts of those artists to capture the undeveloped wildness of the American landscape before it passed into history. Five letters and a sketch from Jervis McEntee are deeply personal as the artist expresses despair about his inability to find subjects in the landscape of Roundout, New York, that had previously so inspired him. He writes of how "The country has changed and lost its quiet," and his desperate need for the companionship of other artists that he had enjoyed with Sanford Gifford and Worthington Whittredge, concluding that "Now when I go away alone to these isolated mountain vallies [sic] I nearly die from loneliness…" Ironically later letters from Frederic Edwin Church refer to the death of Jervis McEntee, and Church's desire to seek seclusion and paint alone in his house.

There is an 1834 letter from Thomas Cole and draft of an agreement relating to his renting a room from John Trumbull at the American Academy of Fine Arts for the exhibition of a picture The Angel Announcing the Birth of Our Savior.

Several letters from renowned actor Edwin Booth, mention contributions of sketches to his wife's album from Sanford Robinson Gifford, Jervis McEntee, and Weir himself. There are 4 letters and 3 sketches from Sanford Robinson Gifford enclosing a photo of Gifford. In one letter he describes re-working the sky of his painting Ruins of the Parthenon against the strong recommendation of Frederic Edwin Church, and declares the work a success.

Additional details regarding individual correspondents are provided in the container listing.

In addition to photographs of Julian Alden Weir, Robert Weir, and others, there is a photograph of Robert Fulton's drawing, Love's First Interview, inscribed to John F. Weir, and a photograph of a war monument by an unknown sculptor.
Arrangement:
The series is arranged by type of material. Letters to John F. Weir are arranged alphabetically. Correspondents represented with 5 or more items are housed in named files.

Type:

Date:
circa 1878-1964
Scope and Contents note:
The Ivins Family Papers consist mainly of correspondence between relatives and friends of the Ivins, 1878-1964, and also include drawings, clippings, genealogies, and miscellaneous items.

Correspondence between William M. Ivins, Jr., and his mother, Emma Yard Ivins, is extensive and wide-ranging. Included are letters from boarding school, c. 1890-1897, with childhood memorabilia such as grade reports, homework papers, a silhouette, and printed programs from school concerts and athletic events. His letters written while an undergraduate at Harvard, 1897-1901, and during his European trip of 1901-1902, reflect a growing interest in art. During some periods, mother and son corresponded almost daily. He frequently wrote in detail about progress with work, news of the museum, opinions about art, and activities of friends and colleagues, as well as commenting on daily life at home.

Florence Wyman Ivins (Mrs. William M. Ivins) also wrote to her mother-in-law regularly, mainly family news which often included details of her husband's professional activities.
Arrangement note:
The series is organized into eight subseries by individual: 5.1: Genealogy, undated

5.2: William M. Ivins, Jr., circa 1893-1964

5.3: Barbara Ivins, circa 1923-1949

5.4: Emma Yard Ivins, 1878-1940

5.8: Sarah Mills Ivins, 1890s-1910

5.9: William M. Ivins, Sr., 1885-1924
Letters addressed to each particular person for whom a subseries exists are arranged alphabetically by sender and filed in chronological order within each name. Related clippings, estate papers, and miscellaneous items are filed with the papers of the person to whom they pertain. There are a few exceptions in this filing system: in cases where there is but one letter addressed to an individual, the item is filed with the papers of the sender, and the authorship clearly indicated in the description.

Miscellaneous Family Papers

Collection Creator:
Cornell, Joseph  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
circa 1911
1944-1964
Scope and Contents note:
Subseries consists of fragments of the papers of Betty Cornell Benton and Helen S. Cornell.

Betty Cornell Benton's papers include kindergarten art work, a printed inventory of Robert Cornell's train collection (which she compiled in collaboration with Robert during the time period from 1962 to 1963), and notes. Some of Benton's notes concern Cornell's biography and magazine collection, and may relate to certain activities in handling his estate.

Helen S. Cornell's papers include printed material on Flushing and the World's Fair (which took place in Flushing in 1939), as well as some writings. The printed material, collected and oftentimes annotated by Mrs. Cornell, documents some of the interests she shared with her son and relates to certain formative experiences shared by the family (such as their repeated visits to the World's Fair, which seems to have been a special time for all).

Beyond the fact that they were stored together, it is unclear how the rest of these fragments relate to Cornell's estate papers. Related papers can be found amongst biographical material, family correspondence, and Robert Cornell's papers.
