Series 6: Printed Material , 1908-2000
1.8 Linear feet
Boxes 3-5, OV 7

Printed material is comprised primarily of announcements and catalogs for Thomas's exhibitions and news clippings related to her activities and to subjects of interest to her. The series includes clippings that J. Maurice Thomas continued to collect about her sister after Alma Thomas's death. Some of the clippings relate to curators and gallery owners who showed Thomas's work and that of other African American and Washington Color School artists.
Other printed material includes a catalog of six linoleum block print Christmas cards designed by Thomas, calendars of events, programs, publications featuring Thomas, reproductions of art work by Thomas and others, and two yearbooks from Saint Luke's Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., of which Alma and J. Maurice Thomas were members.
The bulk of this series has been digitized. Material not digitized includes duplicates; some exhibition catalogs and other publications for which only covers, title pages, and/or relevant pages have been digitized; and some of the Howard University and miscellaneous publications not related to Alma Thomas.
