Series 4: Diaries , 1887-circa 2010
1 Linear foot
Boxes 1-2

Fifteen diaries and six travel diaries describe Smith College; feedback from Robert Henri regarding artwork; and travels to England, France, and Holland as well as to New York and California. Loose pages of notes, clippings, and occasionally objects like pressed leaves or drawings are often interleaved throughout the diaries. There are a few sketches in the diaries, but they are fairly rare. There are some diary entries that consist of loose pages. There is an audiocassette that is probably a recording of people reading selections from Clay's diaries, and digital diary entries and images. There is also a chronological list of diaries with a few notes providing context. Folders with quotation marks in the title indicate that the original diary title was retained.
Diaries and travel diaries are arranged separately and are organized chronologically within each grouping. Miscellaneous items such as the list of diaries, audiocassette, and digitized materials are grouped together towards the end of the series and arranged chronologically. "Diary entries" means there are just loose pages that are grouped together by subject and the pages are were not part of a bound diary.
