Solomon's business records offer scattered insight into his financial situation. His general business records include lists, notes, contracts, expense forms and vouchers, and purchase orders for Solomon's work in various capacities. Of note is an American Federation of Musicians agreement between the Institute of Contemporary Art and "Louis Reed," with booking agent Andy Warhol, for the Velvet Underground and Nico to perform as the Exploding Plastic Inevitable on October 29, 1966 for a fee of $2500. This show accompanied Solomon's Andy Warhol exhibition.
One folder of notebook pages lists payments for artwork purchased and paid for by someone identified as "RJF." Also found are index cards indicating prices of some works of art.
Receipts and expenses include paid invoices, records of payment for teaching appointments, lectures, honorariums, and articles written, and scattered receipts for purchases of artwork and exhibition expenses.
The bulk of this series has been scanned. Material documenting routine financial transactions has not been scanned.
