4.2: Gallery Stock , 1926-1974, undated

This subseries contains stock books and miscellaneous stock records, seven file boxes of inventory cards, and purchase slips.
Purchase slips consist of Downtown Gallery forms summarizing information about items purchased by the gallery, some with sales receipts attached.
Stock books that were not filmed but which can be found in this subseries include: Miscellaneous Expenses, 1929-1931 (1 vol.); and Receipts and Disbursements, Feb. 1931-April 1932, Jan. 1935-May 1938 (1 vol.).
Stock books and miscellaneous stock records are followed by inventory cards and purchase slips. The arrangement of the stock volumes varies: some are categorized by type of art (e.g., American folk art), others are in alphabetical order by name of artist, and yet others are keyed to the storage location of the objects. Inventory cards are mostly organized by type of artwork and arranged by stock number. Purchase slips for each year are arranged alphabetically by name of seller.
