3.7: Miscellaneous Records , 1899-1926, undated

Miscellaneous records consist of writings and architectural records. Writings consist of published and unpublished manuscript material about the American Academy in Rome and its history. Two files relate to a 1922 issue of Art and Archaeology issue on the American Academy in Rome. The School of Fine Arts Section file consists of an outline indicating it was to feature articles by G. P. Stevens, F. P. Fairbanks, P. H. Manship, and Russell Cowles. The file includes the text of Stevens's article, Rome Preeminently the Center for the Advanced Study of Architecture, with illustrations; photographs of "Diogenes, detail of a composition called `The Philosophers' by Ezra Winter, Fellow in Painting of the American Academy in Rome;" and photographs of Greco-Roman sculpture to illustrate Manship's article. The School of Classical Studies Section file includes The School of Classical Studies manuscript by G. M. Wicher with illustrations, including a portrait of Tracy Peck (1838-1921), Director of the American School of Classical Studies in Rome and the school library at Via Vicenza. It also includes the manuscripts, with illustration of Literature, History and Religion, by Nelson G. McCrea, Archaeology, by A. W. Van Buren, and Publications and Museum, by C.
