7.3.2: Artist Files, circa 1933-1982
This series consists primarily of announcements and exhibition catalogs documenting White's interest in other Black artists of his generation and younger, many of whom were friends and colleagues of his such as Bing Davis and Betye Saar, and some of whom were his students at Otis Art Institute.
Of particular note are the catalog from Romare Bearden's first New York exhibition at Samuel M. Kootz Gallery; a WPA student art exhibition at the South Side Community Art Center in Chicago; and a catalog for a 1933 Harmon Foundation Exhibition of Work by Negro Artists.
