Series 3: Rockefeller Family Art Collections , circa 1949-1985
3.9 Linear feet
Boxes 8-12, 25

This series documents Miller's consulting work with members of the Rockefeller family, primarily Nelson A. Rockefeller.
This series is arranged as 2 subseries:
  • 3.1: Nelson A. Rockefeller, circa 1949-1985
  • 3.2: Other Rockefeller Family Members, 1956-1981
3.1: Nelson A. Rockefeller, circa 1949-1985
Found here is signficant documentation of Miller's private curatorial and consulting work for Nelson Rockfeller, including building his private collection, compiling the extensive catalog, The Nelson A. Rockefeller Collection: Masterpieces of Modern Art (New York: Hudson Hills Press, 1981), and furnishing modern art work in public offices associated with Rockefeller.
There is general correspondence between Miller and Rockefeller concerning building the collection, often including Miller's handwritten notes, printed material related to artists and occasional photographs of artwork. Personal correspondence consists primarily of letters from Rockefeller to Miller thanking her for advice, assistance and gifts. Additional correspondence documents Miller's difficulties in securing payment for her years of work on the published catalog because Rockefeller died before the book was completed without having signed a formal contract with Miller.
Additional files document federal government projects Miller completed for Rockefeller, including offering a selection of paintings to the Shah of Iran; a loan of artwork from the Museum of Modern Art to display in Secretary of State Henry Kissinger's State Department office; and providing artwork to furnish the nation's first official Vice-Presidential residence at the Admiral's House in Washington D.C. during Rockefeller's tenure as Vice President. Additionally, files document Miller's work with the Curatorial Committee for the Rockefeller collection at Kykuit and the family's home in Tarrytown, New York.
There are files related to the 1969 exhibitions of Rockefeller collections at the Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Primitive Art, and Rockefeller gifts to the Museum of Modern Art. Records relating to sculpture by Frederick Kiesler and tapestries by Joan Miró and Alexander Calder which Rockefeller considered for purchase are also included here.
Most of the files in this subseries document Miller's work writing, compiling, and publishing The Nelson A. Rockefeller Collection: Masterpieces of Modern Art, which grew from the catalog she compiled for the exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1969. Records include correspondence, printed material, photos and photocopies of artwork, detailed information about individual works of art, meeting notes, drafts of the foreword and preface by Miller, and book copy text by John Russell, Alfred Barr, and Rockefeller. Additional files concern copy layout and illustrations for the book.

3.2: Other Rockefeller Family Members, 1956-1981
Miller's consulting work with Blanchette Rockefeller (Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, III) and David and Peggy Rockefeller is documented here. Files relating to Blanchette Rockefeller primarily concern her purchases from the Museum of Modern Art's 1965 exhibition The New Japanese Painting and Sculpture.
Miller's notes and correspondence with David and Peggy Rockefeller are about her suggestions for acquisitions. Of particular interest is Miller's 1976 letter to David Rockefeller in which she recalls her first encounter with Morris Graves and seeing his artwork for the first time. Rockefeller purchased Graves's painting Shore Birds in 1977.
Also found here is correspondence relating to David Rockefeller's acquisitions from the Edith G. Halpert collection sold at auction in 1973 by Parke-Bernet. Additional files document Miller's research into acquisitions of folk art for the Rockefellers and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Collection. Additional documentation of Miller's work for David Rockefeller in relation to the Rockefeller University Collection is found in the next subseries.

0.8 Linear feet
Boxes 14-15, OV 27

In 1969 Executive Director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANJY) Austin J.

Files are found here that document Miller's work with the committee, including committee meeting minutes and agendas, correspondence and notes, printed materials, photographs.
Several files are related to Miller's work with the committee for selecting artwork for the World Trade Center in the early 1970s. These contain letters from Alexander Calder discussing the purchase of Calder's World Trade Center Stabile, also known as Three Wings and The Cockeyed Propeller which was originally commissioned for the entrance to 1 World Trade Center on West Street, but was moved around the plaza over time. One of Calder's letters is illustrated with a picture indicating how he wanted the stabile's "feet" to be installed. Also found here are several photographs of Calder and his mobiles and stabiles, letters from Joan Miró, Chryssa, and photographs of artwork by other artists.
One file in this series contains writings by Miller concerning the collections of the PANJY.

Series 9: Works Progress Administration Federal Art Project Files , 1935-1979
0.5 Linear feet
Box 20, OV 27

Some of Holger Cahill's files relating to his work as director of the Federal Art Project (FAP) of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) remained with Dorothy Miller, including a series of essays written primarily by FAP artists which Cahill intended to publish, but had not before his death in 1960. This series contains both Cahill's files and Miller's files relating to subsequent FAP research efforts by others. There are two folders of correspondence and other material concerning Miller's work with art historian Francis O'Connor in collecting, organizing, and editing the FAP artist essays that Cahill had saved and which were ultimately published as Art for the Millions: Essays from the 1930s by Artists and Administrators of the Works Progress Administration Federal Art Project (Boston: New York Graphic Society, 1975). In the mid-1960s Miller began donating Cahill's FAP records to the Archives of American Art and scattered correspondence related to this disposition can be found here.
Miller also worked with the Newark Museum in 1978-1979 on the exhibition Murals Without Walls which celebrated the recovery of two large panels of Arshile Gorky's "lost" murals painted for the Newark Airport in 1936-1937 under the FAP. There are files of Miller's correspondence with the museum about the project wherein she provided information about the Gorky murals from Cahill's FAP files.
Additional files document inquiries relating to poster artists and referrals that Miller made to the Office of War Information Graphics Division following the closure of the FAP; an exhibition The Thirties: Reaction to a Crisis held at the Lowe Art Center in April 1974; and a folder of five copies of letters from Holger Cahill to artist Mitchell Siporin. There is also a folder containing copies of a text written by Miller for an exhibition she organized and was circulated by the Museum of Modern Art entitled The U.S. Government Art Projects: Some Distinguished Alumni.
