Scope and Contents
|The papers of Alice Corbin Henderson (ACH) were acquired by the Ransom Center predominately
daughter Alice Henderson Evans Rossin Colquitt (AHR) in several donations and purchases
between 1977 and 1988. Material in this collection consists primarily of correspondence,
literary manuscripts, notes, and clippings of ACH's works and other topics of personal
interest to her. Materials in the collection span in date from 1861 to 1987, but the
the material dates from the 1920s and 1930s. Included in the collection are materials
ACH's husband, William Penhallow Henderson (WPH), and their daughter. The collection
been arranged in four series: I. Alice Corbin Henderson, 1886-1968 (42 boxes); II.
1881-1949 (9 boxes); III. Alice Henderson Rossin, 1881-1987 (12 boxes); and IV. William
Henderson, 1903-1943 (6 boxes). Each series is further divided into two or more
|The collection was divided into series formed around the activities of ACH, AHR and
because of the nature and bulk of materials from these three individuals. The fourth
Family, was created to handle the overlap in the correspondence (letters from AHR
to ACH and
WPH), and to provide a more cohesive structure for research on the family. While ACH,
and AHR each maintained individual interests, several topics were common to all three,
as the desire to assist in the preservation of local customs and rituals of Santa
particularly those of the Indians in the area. The type of participation by each individual
varied, as well as the time period of the activity. Through her writing, ACH expressed
connections to the Southwest, as WPH did in his architecture and art work. While AHR
involved in other interests during the 1920s and 1930s, she returned to New Mexico
parents' deaths to pursue her own interests, such as the Museum of New Mexico Foundation,
and to continue projects initiated by her parents. Reviving the Poets Round-up in
continuing to exhibit her father's work, maintaining the copyright of her mother's
and assisting the biographers of ACH and WPH are examples of AHR's dedication to her
|AHR also spent time working with her parents' papers. The order of the materials in
collection that had been established prior to their arrival at the Ransom Center has
maintained as much as possible. The separation of correspondence to ACH and WPH was
prior to the collection being sent to the Center, so the separation has been maintained
their respective series.
|In Series I and IV, correspondence is addressed to ACH and/or WPH. See the alphabetical
index at the end of the inventory to locate an individual correspondent's materials
collection. Original folder titles have been retained; many throughout the collection
assigned by AHR. The collection was acquired over a period of ten years, and different
sections arrived with varying degrees of arrangement. Portions of the collection,
the literary correspondence, were previously cataloged at the item level but have
incorporated into this inventory. The bulk of material in this collection is correspondence
and it appears in all four series. Information in the correspondence ranges from very
personal interactions to business arrangements, political activities, legal concerns
copyright, economic struggles, as well as other topics.
|ACH's involvement with Poetry: A Magazine of Verse provided her with the initial opportunity to
correspond with many well-known and not so well-known poets and writers, several of
remained in contact with ACH through letters and visits beyond her years with Poetry. Arranged alphabetically, letters from Mary Austin, Witter
Bynner, Nicholas Vachel Lindsay, Haniel Long, Mabel Dodge Luhan, Edgar Lee Masters,
Monroe, Ezra Pound, Carl Sandburg, Ralph Fletcher Seymour, and Roberts Walker comprise
bulk of correspondence in the first series. Some of the correspondence concerning
Poetry discusses what should and should not be published as well as
works that have appeared in the magazine. Many of the correspondents discuss their
writings and express their opinions of other poets, writers, and works. As relationships
developed, more personal information is disclosed by several of the correspondents.
|A strong theme among several of the correspondents was their dedication to the Southwest
and Indian issues. Roberts Walker, Haniel Long, Amelia Elizabeth and Martha White,
Bynner, Oliver La Farge, Mary Austin, Nicholas Vachel Lindsay, and Mary C. Wheelwright
some of the correspondents that kept the Hendersons informed about the status of particular
legislative bills concerning Indian civil and property rights, and what current activities
were occurring in different Indian organizations.
|From this common interest in the Southwest and Indians, ACH and WPH collaborated on
projects that are represented in Series I. Subseries D. New Mexico, where details
Hendersons' activities regarding Indian rights and traditions can be found. Arranged
subject, Subseries D has information on the Eugene Manlove Rhodes Memorial Association,
several issues concerning Indians in New Mexico, the Works Progress Administration
Writer's Project Guide to New Mexico, and the Writer's Edition. Significant portions
subseries are in the form of notes, notebooks, and clippings. For further details
topics see the series description.
|The Navajo House of Religion was a project of particular interest to WPH, although
also involved. Much of the information on the project can be found in Series IV, in
correspondence files of Mary C. Wheelwright, and Amelia Elizabeth and Martha White.
worked with Miss Wheelwright and the Laboratory of Anthropology to create a museum
would preserve the Navajo spirituality and traditions. The project was initiated in
with a design competition sponsored by the Laboratory of Anthropology, an institution
was partially funded by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. WPH submitted a hogan-inspired scheme,
which was eventually built, however, not by the Laboratory of Anthropology. A separate
museum was created, financed and founded by Miss Wheelwright, and the White sisters
land that was contiguous to the Laboratory of Anthropology. Construction did not begin
1937, though correspondence between WPH and Miss Wheelwright concerning the sand paintings
that were part of the interior design began in early 1930s. The building was completed
1942, and ACH was the first curator of the Museum. For further information about this
project, consult the biography of WPH by David Bell (box 55.7), and Series I. Subseries
New Mexico, Indians, Indian Arts Fund (box 27.2).
|Other correspondence in Series IV relates to WPH's work as an artist, furniture designer
and builder, and architect. Some of the early correspondence discusses exhibits of
work. As he became more involved with architecture in the 1920s, the correspondence
from his artistic work to his design of buildings and furniture. WPH, his business
Edwin Brooks, and his son-in-law John Evans, started the Pueblo-Spanish Building Company
1925. Several projects of this company are discussed in the correspondence and are
illustrated with drawings, some of which date after the company's demise. Most of
architectural projects reflect a Southwest Indian motif. In 1923, Amelia Elizabeth
Martha White, sisters from New York, had their home in Santa Fe remodeled and enlarged
WPH, in a style of architecture that influenced what later became known as the Santa
style. WPH also remodeled the Ticket Office of the Santa Fe Railroad Company in 1926-1927
with a similar approach.
|The bulk of the correspondence in Series IV. Family, was generated while AHR was in
process of divorcing her first husband, John Evans, in the early 1930s. Many members
Evans's extended family corresponded with both AHR and ACH during this time. John
suffered financial ruin in the stock market crash of 1929, so there is much discussion
the economic welfare of his children in the correspondence between members of the
family, including ACH, AHR, Mabel Dodge Luhan, Sara Montague (Mabel's mother), and
Evans. Several of John Evans's maternal and paternal aunts wrote to ACH and AHR voicing
their support during this trying time. Financial security was established through
funds for the children upon the death of Sara Montague in the summer of 1933.
|The correspondence increased again in the late 1930s when AHR married Edgar Lewis
and remained fairly constant until ACH died in 1949. AHR assisted her parents with
advice most of her life and Edgar Rossin assumed that position after they were married.
of the correspondence during this period pertains to daily activities and current
Weekly correspondence from the Rossin family was expected by ACH and she expresses
expectation in several letters. All of the Rossin family members corresponded with
including Edgar's son, Tommy, and his brother, Buddy. Buddy Rossin sent letters from
during World War II describing the situation he was witnessing.
|Natalie and Nancy Evans's correspondence with ACH increased during the 1940s. Both
married in 1947 increasing the extended family and the number of correspondents even
further. Family trees have been created to assist with the identification of the extended
family members, particularly since many did not sign their letters with last names.
addition to the family trees, an alphabetical list has been provided to help identify
in the family, with cross references for nicknames. For example, Wippy is WHP, Buddy
Alfred A. Rossin, Jr., and Mama is ACH's stepmother.
|The family correspondence provides one perspective on AHR's life, but the correspondence
Series III. Alice Henderson Rossin, reflects her life outside of the family group.
relationships with various individuals including someone called Ned, Joe F. Edwards,
King Vidor. The bulk of correspondence in Series III is from the 1930s. Very few letters
from other time periods are present except those of her parents' biographers and a
letters from Helga Sandburg (Carl Sandburg's daughter), Ralph Fletcher Seymour, Oliver
Farge, Lady Bird Johnson, Rabindranath Tagore, and from her mother-in-law, Clara Rossin
(1912-1928). For a complete list of correspondents see the alphabetical index and
list. See the series description for further details.
|After ACH died, AHR worked with her mother's and father's papers and continued some
work they had begun. AHR held another Poet's Roundup in 1968, having researched her
work, and provides insight into the origins and history of the event not found in
series. She worked with the Museum of New Mexico Foundation to preserve New Mexican
traditions and customs. AHR also worked with both of her parents' biographers and
exhibiting her father's art work. See AHR's series description for further information
|Series I. Alice Corbin Henderson, 1886-1968
|Series I has five subseries: Correspondence, 1903-1949 (12 boxes); Works by Others,
1886-1945 (4 boxes); Works by Alice Corbin Henderson, 1898-1948 (8 boxes); New Mexico,
1915-1949 (9 boxes); and Miscellaneous, 1915-1949, 1968 (9 boxes). Correspondence
works by others are arranged alphabetically by the author. Works by Henderson are
arranged chronologically. The New Mexico and Miscellaneous subseries are arranged
alphabetically by subject.
|Subseries A encompasses business and personal correspondence and reflects the variety
of individuals that ACH knew. Harriet Monroe, Ezra Pound, and Nicholas Vachel Lindsay
discuss the magazine Poetry in much of their
correspondence. Roberts Walker, a lawyer, wrote on the status of various Indian issues,
and also provided ACH with some legal advice concerning royalties for the anthology
ACH and Monroe collaborated on. Very little material, other than correspondence and
clippings concerns the magazine Poetry. (The ACH book
collection at theRansom Center has a complete run of Poetry from 1912 to 1969, volume 1-113. The Collection code is
|Other correspondents discuss professional and personal interests with ACH. Witter
Bynner writes of his experiences with D. H. and Frieda Lawrence and Spud Johnson during
a trip to Mexico, as well as issues concerning the conditions and rights of Indians.
Mary Austin discusses poets, poetry, current events, issues of the Southwest, and
exhibits of WPH. Haniel Long, Carl Sandburg, and Ralph Fletcher Seymour include personal
information in their correspondence beyond the working connections they had with ACH.
Long, a member of the Writer's Edition, outlines some of the affairs of the organization
in his letters. Sandburg discusses various writing projects, particularly the biography
of Abraham Lincoln, personal information, and possible vacations to Santa Fe. Seymour,
who published some of ACH's work, was also an occasional visitor to Santa Fe and
continued to assist AHR, after the death of ACH, with copyright and reprints of ACH's
work (see AHR correspondence with Seymour after 1949).
|There is extensive correspondence with Mabel Dodge Luhan in this subseries, most of
pertaining to family matters. Luhan discusses in her letters the divorce of AHR and
Evans and the care of the grandchildren. During the early and mid 1930s, the support
Luhan offered, the opinions she expressed, and her requests to be with the grandchildren
were often not what AHR and ACH felt to be appropriate. In later years however, Luhan
provided emotional and physical support to ACH during the health problems that she
experienced. In her chronology of her mother's life (box 54.9), AHR expressed her
feelings about Luhan this way, "After all the miseries that
Mabel had caused us all---She did more for ACH's morale than any other of her friends
except Oliver La Farge during these difficult months....I really forgave Mabel for
this devotion to ACH."
|Subseries B consists primarily of typed copies and clippings of other's works, some
which have annotations that may be the authors' notes or those of ACH. There are eight
folders of combined works, three folders of material are for the anthologies that
compiled with Harriet Monroe, The New Poetry and The New Poetry, Volume II. Two folders of material were compiled
for "Poetry Talks, 1933," and the last three folders in
the subseries are not identified with a particular compilation. Three publications
in this subseries that include works by authors represented elsewhere in the subseries
are: The Lyric, v.24 #4, Winter, 1945; The Midland, November, 1925; and Poetry, v.43 #3, December, 1933. Authors represented in the
three publications and in the last three folders are not indexed.
|The remainder of the works are arranged alphabetically by author and are identified
the index at the end of the inventory. Materials not housed in document cases include
galley proofs for: An Appreciation: Alice Corbin Henderson edited
by Witter Bynner and Oliver La Farge; The Portrait of Mr. Moody by
William Vaughn Moody; and an unidentified work by Nicholas Vachel Lindsay. There are
also two articles by Eugene Manlove Rhodes, The Star of Empire: the Men of the Bar Cross Stand Their Last Guard,
and No Mean City in an oversize folder.
|Works of ACH are arranged chronologically as far as could be determined. Undated works
are arranged in alphabetical order at the end of the subseries. The labels that ACH
to describe her notebooks have been retained; notebooks for specific works are arranged
by date of publication, while those that include a number of works and span a larger
time period are filed by the earliest date. Handwritten, typed copies, and clippings
ACH's poetry and other writings are formats found within the notebooks. The arrangement
within the notebooks has been maintained but the three-ring binders that housed the
notebooks have been removed and discarded. Adam's Dream, Spinning Woman of the Sky, Red Earth, The Turquoise Trail,
and Brothers of Light are represented by clippings,
book reviews, notes, and manuscripts. All of ACH's published books are represented
this collection; some only in the form of notebooks, while others are present as
manuscripts. There are galley proofs of Adam's Dream and Brothers of Light. Bound copies of Sonnets and Songs and The New Moon, as well as a few of ACH's published pamphlets are
filed in the dated portion of this subseries.
|Material that is not specifically identified with a published work or with subjects
the other subseries are filed at the end of this subseries. This includes notes on
Fe; Lake Bluff, Illinois; early American poets; Taos, New Mexico; religion; and other
|Subseries D is arranged topically under headings that ACH created. Notes, notebooks,
and reference notebooks comprise most of this subseries, which is divided into seven
groups: Eugene Manlove Rhodes Memorial Association, 1932-1949, 1967; Indians, 1915-1948;
Notebooks, 1919-1946, n.d.; Notes, 1927-1928, n.d.; Publications, 1906-1947; Works
Progress Administration Federal Writer's Project, guide to New Mexico, 1936-1937;
the Writer's Edition, 1933-1939.
|The Eugene Manlove Rhodes Memorial Association was created by seven individuals: E.
Dana Johnson, Mary C. Wheelwright, ACH, Ruth Laughlin Alexander, Amelia Elizabeth
George Curry, and Richard C. Dillon, and was dedicated to preserving and perpetuating
the memory of Eugene M. Rhodes, a southwestern writer. Rhodes, a cowboy for 25 years
New Mexico, began writing in 1906. He was a featured writer of the Saturday Evening Post, wrote several books, and is noted for his
historical works about the west. The Association was incorporated in 1935, one year
after his death. WPH coordinated the creation and erection of a monument that was
on Rhodes's grave in New Mexico on May 19, 1941. Other projects of the Memorial
Association included gathering articles by and about Eugene M. Rhodes, updating a
bibliography of his works, and trying to have his out-of-print books reprinted as
as creating compilations of his work.
|There are three copies of an article on the Memorial Gathering, and a box of 3x5 index
cards consisting of the mailing and membership lists. The three largest sections of
group of records are the correspondence (general and with Mrs. E. M. Rhodes), a notebook
on Rhodes created by ACH, and photographs of the Gathering in 1941. The general
correspondence is in alphabetical order and pertains to donations, the Memorial
Gathering, and Rhodes's work. The notebooks are a combination of clippings of articles
by and about Rhodes and the Memorial Gathering, a bibliography of books by Rhodes,
interviews of those who knew Rhodes, form letters of EMRMA, and photostats of
|Indians contains articles, clippings, and notes regarding legislation, the Eastern
Association of Indian Affairs, the Indian Arts Fund (associated with the Laboratory
Anthropology), the New Mexico Association of Indian Affairs, a Navajo bibliography,
other topics that are arranged alphabetically by subject in this section. As part
New Mexico subseries, this division is specific to Indian subjects or organizations.
There is also information in the remainder of the subseries on New Mexico that relates
to Indian issues, though not as the primary focus, such as clippings in the scrapbook
New Mexico (box 29.2-3).
|The four sections of the miscellaneous subseries consist of notes, clippings, articles
and publications pertaining to New Mexico. The miscellaneous materials are articles
relating to El Cura De Mi Pueblo, the San Vicente
Foundation, and weather. Arranged alphabetically by subject, some of the topics of
notebooks are: anthropology, New Mexico bibliography and scrapbooks, and E. Dana
Johnson, a newspaper columnist in Santa Fe. The notebooks contain primarily clippings
and notes on the topic of the notebook, but some other subjects are represented as
The reference notebooks were titled and numbered as such by ACH and include information
about the geography, history, and Indians of New Mexico. ACH may have used these
reference notebooks for her work with the WPA Federal Writer's Project, her book Brothers of Light, and for general information about New Mexico.
The box of notes covers similar subjects, but were not put into notebooks by ACH.
|The Federal Writer's Project Guide to New Mexico was a project that ACH worked on
the editor-in-chief from July 7, 1936 to July 15, 1937. Arranged alphabetically by
subject, much of the material in this section consists of reference notes and
bibliographical information related to the guide. There is also organizational
information and some correspondence regarding the project. A copy of New Mexico: A Guide to the Colorful State, the resulting
publication, is cataloged in the Alice Corbin Henderson book collection (F 801 W76
|The Writer's Edition was started in 1933 by four charter members: Alice Corbin
Henderson, Haniel Long, Peggy Pond Church, and Raymond Otis. This publishing venture
designed to help writers from the west get their materials published by non-eastern
publishers and to have them distributed to interested individuals and book stores.
had two of her own works, The Sun Turns West and
A Child's Bouquet published by the Writer's Edition. Fourteen
books were published by the Writer's Edition from 1933 to 1939, including: Foretaste, by Peggy Pond Church; Atlantides, by Haniel Long; Penalosa, by Eugene Manlove Rhodes; and Horizontal Yellow, by Spud Johnson.
|This section is arranged alphabetically and includes book reviews, mailing lists,
correspondence, organizational development, and shipping receipts. Information about
Writer's Edition itself is somewhat limited in this section, however. Miscellaneous
clippings and notebooks in the New Mexico subseries contain articles regarding the
Writer's Edition and should be consulted for further information about the organization
and its publications. See also ACH's correspondence with Haniel Long.
|Subseries E is arranged alphabetically by subject, and the four largest groups are:
Clippings, 1911-1962; Datebooks, 1925-1949; Geometry, n.d.; and Photographs,
|In general, clippings appear throughout the collection, however, these were grouped
together by ACH and are arranged alphabetically by subject, including: cartoons by
Beerbohm, dynamic symmetry, literature, psychology, Will Rogers, science, and notebooks
of clippings from 1901 to 1946. There is a folder of clippings about Mabel Dodge Luhan,
including an obituary and other clippings that AHR added after ACH died. See the
additional materials list at the end of the inventory for more clippings in the Vertical
|Datebooks are arranged by format for housing purposes, then by date. Information
regarding appointments is the primary purpose of these books, however, ACH does make
notes and comments in them concerning other matters. AHR used these datebooks to create
the chronology of ACH, (see box 54.8-10).
|Geometry was an area of strong interest for both ACH and WPH. There are cut-out shapes,
articles on plane geometry and dynamic symmetry, a compositional and proportional
developed by artist/theoretician Jay Hambridge, and miscellaneous notes. Arrangement
|Photographs include the Corbin family, friends, poets, artists, and the 1968 Poet's
Round-up. See also the list of additional materials for other photographs in the
Photography Department. Arrangement is alphabetical by subject.
|Series II. Family, 1861-1978
|Series II is divided into two subseries: Correspondence, 1861-1949 (8 boxes) and
Genealogy, 1889-1978 (1 box). The family correspondence series was created because
the amount of material, and to avoid splitting the exchanges between the other three
series. The arrangement also provides a chronological approach to information about
family. Much of the extended family correspondence in the early 1930s is primarily
John Evans's family. Persons who were identified in the correspondence as family members
are represented in this series with the exception of Mabel Dodge Luhan (see Series
Correspondence). Due to the number of extended family members and the complicated
relationships existing between them, an alphabetical list of family members and a
tree are located at the end of the inventory.
|The bulk of the correspondence ranges from 1931 to 1933 and 1944 to 1947. The majority
letters are between ACH and AHR exchanging information on current family matters such
AHR's divorce from John Evans, the care of AHR's three daughters, and financial matters.
Many of Evans's relatives wrote of their desire to help and their affection for AHR
her children during the early 1930s. After AHR married Edgar Rossin in 1938 the extended
family correspondence increased again. There are letters from Rossin's brother during
World War II relating his experiences in Europe. After Natalie Evans married Bill
Mauldin in 1947, his family also corresponded. The family correspondence ends after
death of ACH in 1949.
|The genealogy of the Corbin family comprises the remainder of the family series. ACH
gathered this information over a period of time, and her daughter and half sister,
Margaret Young, continued the effort after ACH died. There are clippings and articles
about the Corbin family as well as notes and family trees.
|Series III. Alice Henderson Rossin, 1881-1987
|Series III has eight subseries: Correspondence, 1913-1982 (3 boxes); Alice Corbin
Henderson, 1881-1984 (1.5 boxes); William Penhallow Henderson, 1917-1986 (2 folders);
H. Lawrence Festival, 1980 (2 folders); Miscellaneous, 1914-1987 (2 boxes); Poet's
Roundup, 19681 box); Clara Rossin, 1912-1928 (7 folders); and the Museum of New Mexico
Foundation, 1962-1982 (4 boxes).
|Subseries A reflects AHR's life primarily in the 1930s and consists mostly of letters
from friends: King Vidor, Jack Foster, Joe F. Edwards, Dorthea and Jouett Ross Todd,
Frans and Martha Visser't Hooft, Fred and Beth Ullman, and Albin Omberg Holder. AHR's
personal feelings and relationships are discussed in more depth with her friends than
the family correspondence in the early 1930s. After AHR married Edgar Rossin in 1938,
the correspondence in this subseries shifts from personal to business matters.
|Subseries B comprises files on ACH's personal estate kept by AHR. AHR maintained
copyright information, articles about her mother, status of ACH's literary estate,
correspondence with ACH's biographers, T. M. Pearce and Jim Kraft, and other
miscellaneous items. AHR created a chronology of her mother's life, which is also
in this subseries (box 54.8-9). The files are arranged alphabetically by subject or
|Subseries C consists of articles about WPH and a copy of his biography by David
|Subseries D is primarily clippings of articles about the festival in 1980. A conference
brochure describes the events of the festival.
|Subseries E is arranged alphabetically by subject and consists of clippings, notebooks
and notes, receipts, and miscellaneous stories and school work by AHR. There are also
three folders on resident artists in New Mexico, 1850-1950. In 1952, AHR produced
entitled Husbands Don't Count in London. A notebook
pertaining to this production is filed in this subseries.
|Subseries F contains information that AHR gathered to produce the Poet's Round-up
1968. There is historical information not available in ACH's series on this topic,
as biographies of the poets that participated over the ten years that the Round-up
occurred. There is also research correspondence seeking this biographical information
well as letters asking poets to participate. The introduction, invitations, program,
photographs help to document the 1968 event. The subseries is arranged alphabetically
|Clara Rossin was AHR's second mother-in-law. Clara Lewisohn Rossin was the daughter
Adolph Lewisohn, head of one of New York's leading banking and philanthropic families.
She continued the family philanthropic tradition and supported the arts, particularly
the area of music, and her correspondence provides insight into her musical interests
and projects during the 1920s. Ernest Bloch, a composer, teacher, and conductor,
corresponded frequently with Clara Rossin from 1924 to 1928. The creation of a fund
support Bloch's composing, as well as other musical interests are discussed in the
correspondence. AHR added to this correspondence the Ernest Bloch Society Bulletin,
1977, number 10. Lawrence Gilman, music critic and writer, and Joseph Szigeti, Hungarian
violinist, also corresponded with Clara Rossin about musical projects and interests.
Clara Rossin died in 1928, but her correspondence was handed down through the family,
ending up in AHR's hands. The subseries is arranged alphabetically by correspondent.
|Subseries H is arranged alphabetically by subject. The minutes of the Board of Trustees
Coordinating Committee, finance records, membership lists, organizational structure,
other miscellaneous materials comprise this subseries. AHR became involved with the
Foundation in 1962 and remained an active member until 1982.
|Series IV. William Penhallow Henderson, 1903-1943
|Series IV has two subseries: Correspondence, 1903-1943 (4 boxes), and Miscellaneous,
1916-1943, n.d. (2 boxes). The correspondence is arranged alphabetically by writer.
majority of the correspondence reflects WPH's architectural and furniture building
business before, during, and after the Pueblo-Spanish Building Co. Mary Wheelwright
wrote most often to the Hendersons discussing the creation and up-keep of the House
Navajo Religion museum, as well as other projects from 1930 to 1941. See also Series
Subseries D. New Mexico: Indians, for more information on the House of Navajo Religion,
Laboratory of Anthropology, and Indian Arts Fund. Other correspondents include Amelia
Elizabeth and Martha White (1922-1934), Spencer Penrose (furniture project at Cheyenne
Mt., 1925-1927), John Duncan Forsyth (1927-1943), the Santa Fe Railroad Co. Ticket
Office (remodeling the station, 1926-1927), Brook Reed Gallery (1916-1920), the
Pueblo-Spanish Building Co. (1927-1931), and others.
|The Miscellaneous subseries, arranged alphabetically by topic, consists primarily
drawings and notes. The ink, pencil, and pastel drawings have been removed from the
collection for proper storage in the Art Collection of the HRC. Remaining in the
collection are notes, some of which are of color formulas, others are of geometric
architectural drawings. See also Series I. Subseries C. New Mexico for other projects
with which WPH was involved.
