Series 3: Printed Materials , circa 1883-1941
(Boxes 2-3; 0.5 linear feet

Found in this series are newspaper clippings, exhibition announcements, catalogs, pamphlets, broadsides, maps and blank postcards. Exhibition announcements and catalogs primarily document exhibitions of paintings and drawings by both Dorothea and Katherine Dreier, and include a numbered edition of The Dorothea A. Dreier Exhibition that Katherine Dreier printed privately to commemorate the memorial exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art in 1925.
Newspaper clippings record the artistic, social and political activities of the Dreier family as well as other subjects of interest to Dorothea. A folder of pamphlets and broadsides provide information concerning the political, social and charitable causes that Dorothea supported, including the Home for Recreation of Woman and Children that her mother founded in 1898 as the German Home for Women and Children. Finally there is a collection of postcards assembled from her travels.
In most cases, only the cover and title page of exhibition catalogs, brochures and pamphlets have been scanned. Blank postcards, general travel materials, and clippings, brochures and advertisements unrelated to the Dreiers or their interests, have not been scanned.
