Note: Headquarters of the Archives of American Art is in New York City. Original research materials are in Washington. Researchers may use microfilm copies of the original material in Washington, New York, Boston, Detroit, and San Francisco, the 5 offices of the Archives. In cases when a branch does not have a copy of the desired material, an interlibrary loan system can generally provide the item(s).
In addition, these collections contain some material relating to the Russian Empire/Soviet Union (amounts vary considerably; significance of references could not be checked): papers of Senator William Benton, William Merritt Berger, Maxim Karolik, Rockwell Kent, Hilla Rebay, Theodore Roszak, and William Reinhold Valentiner. Collections that also appear to have relevant holdings include: Alfred Hamilton Barr, Thomas Eakins, Albert Kahn, Elizabeth McCausland, J. B. Neumann, Hudson Walker, Robert Jay Wolff, and Sidney C. Woodward, and American Abstract Artists.
Much of the preceding material is on microfilm. A Checklist of the Collection, compiled by Arthur J. Breton, Nancy H. Zembala, and Anne P. Nicastro (Spring, 1975) will be revised periodically.
