Scope and Contents:
General correspondence documents Cox's career and professional relationships with artists and architects, art institutions and organizations, federal, state and local government agencies and members of congress; private clients including banks and residences; and private social clubs in which Cox was active.

Cox's work at the United States Capitol is well represented here through correspondence, resumes, legal documents including contracts, condition reports, congressional reports and resolutions, and photographic material. Substantial correspondence between Cox and Representative Frank Schwengel document their earliest discussions when Cox first indicated his interest in the Capitol commission, and their ongoing professional relationship as the work continued. Also found is correspondence with artists Arthur Conrad, Adrian Lamb and Deane Keller who worked under Cox in his capacity as supervising artist on the portraits for the Senate Reception Room; and correspondence with the United States Capitol Historical Society, the office of the Architect of the Capitol, the Smithsonian Institution, and various historical societies and organizations with whom Cox consulted during the research phases of the Capitol projects. Correspondence with Cox's assistant, Cliff Young, is generally filed separately.

14 folders of records including correspondence, memoranda, and contracts, document Cox's work for the George Washington Masonic National Memorial.

American Battle Monuments Commission records include correspondence and contracts with architects Francis Keally and John Harbeson, and mosaic fabricator Fabrizio Cassio. Also found is correspondence with: architects John Barrington Bayley, Charles Downing Lay, Philip Trammell Shutze, with whom Cox collaborated on a variety of private residences including the Calhoun House in Atlanta, Georgia, and Roscoe DeWitt, who worked with Cox on a commission for St. Paul's Hospital in Dallas, Texas; artists Stuart Frost, Edward Laning; historian Bernard Berenson; interior decorator Emma Romeyn; journalist Joseph C. Harsch; models, including Jay Martin; and writer Katharine Hayden Salter who wrote many letters to Cox on the subject of Kenyon Cox.

Dumbarton Oaks records include correspondence with Mildred Bliss, Venetian Art Mosaics Inc Studio, and others involved in the project to replace Cox's deteriorating exterior loggia mural of Diana and Actaeon with a glass mosaic design of the painting. Cox's work with Venetian Art Mosaics Inc. also extended to other projects, such as the mosaic panels for the General Grant National Memorial (formerly Grant's Tomb), in New York City.

Art Students League correspondence docments Cox's role as instructor at the League, 1940-1941. Art Commission of the City of New York records document Cox's service on the Art Commission.

Biographical / Historical:
Originally named The Mural Painters, the National Society of Mural Painters (NSMP) was founded in 1895 in New York City by a group of artists, including John W. Alexander, Kenyon Cox, Edwin Blashfield, and John LaFarge, who were concerned with the design and execution of mural art for architecture in the United States. The organization's first president was Frederic Crowninshield. For well over one hundred years members of NSMP have created significant and monumental works of art across the country. Many significant American artists have been members and served as past presidents, such as George Biddle, Hildreth MeiƩre, Arthur S. Covey, Allyn Cox, Helen Treadwell, and Xavier Gonzales, among many others.

Since its founding, the NSMP has collaborated with the Fine Arts Section of the Treasury Department, the federal WPA Arts Project, and the design boards of several World's Fairs. As a member of Artists for Victory, NSMP coordinated the execution of murals for barracks and camps, as well as many triptych alterpieces.

NSMP organizes exhibitions and conductes competitions. In celebration of its one hundredth anniversary, a centennial exhibition was held in October 1995 at the Art Students League. Society members work with other organizations, actively sponsoring legislation for the development and commission of public works of art. Still active today, the current president is Jeff Greene.
Separated Materials:
The Archives of American Art also holds material lent for microfilming (reel NSM1) including 83 photographs of mural paintings and mural studies, and 25 exhibition boards showing sculptures, mosaics, and mural paintings with the artist's name, medium, title, and location listed. Lent materials were returned to the lender and are not described in the collection container inventory.
Provenance:
The National Society of Mural Painters lent materials for microfilming in 1963 and donated records in 1965-1966. The National Society of Mural Painters, via President Jeff Greene, gave papers in 2009.

Biographical / Historical:
New York, N.Y. and Washington, D.C. painter and muralist, Allyn Cox (1896-1982), was born in New York City to artists Kenyon and Louise Cox. Cox first trained as his father's assistant, serving as an apprentice to Kenyon Cox during the painting of the murals at the Wisconsin State Capitol, circa 1912. He attended the National Academy of Design from 1910-1915, and the Art Student's League with George Bridgman in 1915. In 1916 he was awarded the Prix de Rome and subsequently studied at the American Academy in Rome for 2 years before returning to New York City to begin a career in mural painting.

Cox completed numerous murals and decorative paintings for private residences, businesses, churches, and public buildings. Some of his most famous commissions included murals for the Royal Arch Room and Memorial Hall of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial in Alexandria, Virginia; the Law School at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville; and the William A. Clark Memorial Library at the University of California, Los Angeles; panels for the National City Bank, the Continental Bank, and the Guaranty Trust Company in New York; and glass mosaics and inlaid stone maps for the United States Military Cemetery in Hamm, Luxembourg.

Cox is best known for his work in the United States Capitol, beginning in 1952 when he undertook a congressional commission to restore and complete the murals in in the Capitol rotunda begun by Constantino Brumidi and Filipo Costaggini in 1878. Over the course of the next two decades Cox, now residing in Washington, D.C., restored the Frieze of American History and the Apotheosis of Washington in the Rotunda, and designed murals for three first-floor corridors in the Capitol's House wing, now known as the Cox Corridors. Assisted by Cliff Young, Cox completed painting for two of these corridors before his death. In 1958 Cox also painted a portrait of Henry Clay for the Senate Reception Room and in 1975 completed a mural depicting the 1969 moon landing in the Brumidi Corridor.

Cox taught at the Art Students League in 1940 and 1941, and was active in professional organizations throughout his career. He served as President of the American Artists Professional League and the National Society of Mural Painters, and Vice President of both the Fine Arts Federation and the New York Architectural League. He was a member of the board of the New York Municipal Art Society and served on the the New York City Art Commission.

Cox retired in March 1982 at the age of 86 and died the following September.
