Type:

Scope and Contents note:
Artwork primarily consists of pencil drawings, watercolors, and pastels. Found here are costume and theater designs created as part of William Bunn's thesis at University of Iowa. Also included are drawings and watercolors for potential art projects. Researchers should note that many of the miscellaneous drawings here were most likely preliminary drawings and studies for works documented in Series 3: Project Files or technical drawings from his work as an industrial designer. Drawings frequently depict steamboats, airplanes, people, and mechanical designs. Additionally, there are four sketchbooks. Two of these sketchbooks contain sketches and notes for the post office murals in Minden, Nebraska, and Hamburg, Iowa.

Marsh, Reginald, 1898-1954  Search this
Extent:
(boxes 6, 9-11; 1.5 linear feet)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1911-1954
Scope and Contents note:
Series consists of the scrapbooks that Marsh kept throughout his career as an artist, in which he saved clippings of reproductions of his work (illustrations, cartoons, and reproductions of paintings and theater designs), articles, and reviews that appeared in various newspapers and magazines along with other printed material. Scrapbooks document the trajectory of Marsh's career, including the publication of his illustrations and cartoons, the exhibition of his paintings, and the critical and public reception of his art work. Notably, scrapbooks also document Marsh's on-going effort to record and recount his whole career in the clippings he collected and in the way he sometimes creatively displayed them.

Scrapbooks were assigned numbers at some point, though it is not clear what particular order the numbers follow nor who assigned them. The numbers appear in brackets in the respective file title. At some previous point, scrapbooks that had been stored in 3-ring binders were removed from them for preservation purposes. Scrapbbooks are arranged in rough chronological order. More detailed descriptions of certain ones are provided below.
