Original Envelopes

Collection Creator:
Arthur, James (James Osborne)  Search this
Container:
Box 5
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1913-1928
Scope and Contents:
This series contains 108 envelopes that were used by Rev. James O. Arthur to house the photographs he shot circa 1913-1928. The first envelope is from Zimmerman Brothers photography store in Sioux City, Iowa. On the inner part of this envelope are prices for developing, printing, and enlarging photographs. On the outside of this paper envelope is Reverend James O. Arthur's handwritten notes including his name, date of 1904, and location at Emerson, Nebraska.

Arthur organized and numbered the rest of the negatives in plain letter envelopes based on two negative sizes: 1 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches and 3 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Arthur also typed information relating to the photographs on each envelope. This information includes dates, subject matter (including names of the people depicted in the photos), and his ratings of the photographs (bad, poor, fair, good). Some envelopes feature Arthur's handwritten additions or corrections to the typed text. The envelopes for the smaller 1 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch negative set are numbered 1-50 and are mostly in red typewriter ink with a few in blue ink and date from 1913 to 1928. The envelopes for the larger 3 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch negative set are numbered 1-56 and are mostly in blue typewriter ink with a few in black ink and date from 1913 to 1919.

Many of these envelopes also housed Kodak Exposure Record forms with Arthurs' handwritten notations on them. The printed forms document the day, time, subject matter, exposure time, F stop, and lighting conditions of each photograph on the roll.

Some of the photographs described on the envelopes were missing from these enclosures or were not donated to NMAI.

Biographical / Historical:
New York native Gloria Dale (1922 -2013) was a textile designer in London, England, known for her artistry in rug designs.

Dale taught herself rug tufting while living in Washington, D.C. in her late 20s, and would sometimes employ modern painters to create designs for her rugs. She became interested in crafts throughout the Americas after traveling to Mexico and Cuba in 1957 and organized a 1962 exhibition, Magic Carpets, featuring rug designs by María Luisa Pacheco, Carlos Mérida, and several other artists from Central and South America.

In 1966, Dale married Sir William Dale, a prominent British lawyer. The couple lived in the Middle East in the 1970s, where Dale began designing bead jewelry inspired by the antique beads she found locally. She continued exploring new materials into her late 80s, taking up felting and creating abstract felts from wool which led to her membership in Britain's Contemporary Applied Arts in 2012. Dale was also a longtime patron of the British Crafts Council.

Dale died in London in 2013.
