Series 1: Personal Papers , 1838, 1920-1951
1.5 Linear feet
Boxes 1-2, 34

Series consists of material relating to the more personal aspects of McCausland's life, including appointment books and engagement calendars, scrapbooks, student papers, works printed on her private press in Springfield, Massachusetts, financial records, biographical material, and scattered memorabilia. Scrapbooks include one kept by McCausland, dating from 1937 to 1940, comprised of correspondence from Waldo Leland Cook, Art Young, Max Weber, and Edward Sternberg, clippings, and other printed material (which was disassembled at some previous point in time and exists now as loose items); and one kept by her mother, Belle Noble McCausland, dating from 1920 to 1943, comprised mostly of clippings and empty envelopes from letters received by McCausland (letters were removed at some previous point in time and can now be found amongst correspondence). Student papers include an honors paper written while an undergraduate at Smith College and a copy of her M.A. thesis published in Smith College Studies in Modern Languages (1922). Amongst the memorabilia is a sign from Lake George that, according to a note on it, was given to McCausland by Alfred Stieglitz, presumably some time during the 1930s.
Also found is material relating to the scrip McCausland received as payment for work at The Springfield Republican in 1933; a car trip McCausland made with Berenice Abbott in 1935; and a testimonial dinner for McCausland "in recognition of her work in the field of art criticism and of her efforts on behalf of all artists" which was held on May 28, 1945 at the Hotel Breevort in New York.
Personal papers are arranged in alphabetical order according to format.
This series is partially scanned; early academic records, tax records, duplicates, and poems written by others have not been scanned.
