Series 1: Correspondence , 1895-1929, undated
(Box 1-5; 4.2 linear feet)

More than one-half of the collection consists of Jaccaci's correspondence with everyone connected with the publication of his book Noteworthy Paintings in Private American Collections. The bulk of the correspondence dates from 1903 to 1913 and is between Jaccaci and the art historians, curators, critics, and art collectors concerning the compilation of the numerous essays for the book. Correspondents include Wilhelm Bode, Kenyon Cox, Lionel Cust, William H. Downes, Max Friedlander, Roger Fry, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Jules Guiffrey, Lewis Hind, C. J. Holmes, Paul LaFond, Frank Jewett Mather, Jr., Ernst Moes, Bernhard Sickert, Oswald Siren, Mariana G. Van Rensselaer, and others. Jaccaci also corresponded with artists such as Aureliano de Beruete, Mary Cassatt, Ben Foster, Will H. Low, Harper Pennington, Rudolph Ruzicka, and Augustus Tack.
Also included is a large amount of correspondence between John La Farge (co-editor of the book)and Jaccaci. Additional La Farge correspondence is found throughout this series as he also corresponded with many people and organizations about the book. Researchers should note some of the correspondence is signed and addressed to La Farge's secretary Grace E. Barnes. There is also a large amount of correspondence in this series with Carl Snyder, an agent working for Jaccaci in Europe. Also found is Jaccaci's correspondence with photographers, such as Frederick O. Bemm, as well as publishers, art associations, and academic institutions. Also included is a small amount of correspondence with American Magazine, Burlington Magazine, and McClure's, concerning his work as an editor.
Scattered correspondence between Jaccaci and his friends, former co-workers, and his son August Thayer Jaccaci is found in this series. Other correspondence concerns printing and publishing, his work with French services organizations during World War One, and legal and investment matters.
Correspondence is arranged alphabetically by name of the correspondent, or, in a few instances, by topic. Unidentified letters have been arranged at the end of the series. For folders containing letters from more than one correspondent, the individual names are listed underneath the folder heading. Miscellaneous correspondence is listed after the alphabetical correspondence.
