9.4: Writings and Speeches, circa 1910-circa 1924

Thomas E. Kirby and Rose H. Lorenz, Kirby's chief assistant, worked on Kirby's autobiography after their retirement from the American Art Association. The book was to be published by Doubleday Page and Co. After Kirby's death in 1924, Charles De Kay was hired by Kirby's son to write Kirby's biography with the assistance of Lorenz.
Materials include research material, drafts, and meeting minutes for Kirby's autobiography and biography, as well as speech notes and drafts for the opening of the American Art Galleries in 1922.
