    Jervis McEntee Diaries

    The McEntee diaries were donated to the Archives in 1964 by one of Jervis McEntee's heirs, Mrs. Helen S. McEntee. Curator Garnett McCoy immediately delved into them, producing transcripts and indexing names that resulted, 4 years later, in a lengthy article in the Archives' Journal (Vol. 4, No. 3, July 1964). Through a generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, Inc., the Archives of American Art has built upon McCoy's work to provide unprecedented access to this valuable resource.
