Series 6: Marsden Hartley , 1900-1964, bulk 1944-1964
10 Linear feet
Boxes 11-21, OV 37

Series consists of extensive files relating to a major research project on the artist Marsden Hartley begun by the American Art Research Council around 1944 and turned over to McCausland by Hudson Walker in the early 1950s. The project involved a planned critical biography, envisaged as a companion volume to McCausland's biography of Maurer, and a projected catalogue raisonne of Hartley's paintings, neither of which was ever completed. Related projects included an introductory monograph on Hartley written by McCausland, focusing on the Hudson D. Walker collection of more than 150 Hartleys on long-term loan to the University of Minnesota, which was published in 1952; and a traveling exibition, organized by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and American Federation of Arts, which took place from 1960 to 1962 and for which McCausland did the catalog.
Some material may have been created and collected by the American Art Research Council, particularly portions of the catalogue raisonne files and other research files. McCausland seems to have incorporated this material into her own files and/or used and reorganized it as necessary in conjunction with creating and collecting material in her own files.
The series is arranged as 6 subseries:
  • 6.1: Critical Biography Files, 1911-1964, bulk 1953-1964
  • 6.2: Catalogue Raisonne Files, circa 1946-1964
  • 6.3: Card Files, circa 1944-1964
  • 6.4: Correspondence and General Files, 1900-1964, bulk 1950-1964
  • 6.5: Other Research Files, 1921-1962, bulk 1944-1962
  • 6.6: Interviews, 1959-1960
  • 6.7: Auction Catalogs, 1905-1963, bulk 1905-1929
The bulk of this series has been scanned, including photographs of works of art, except when obviously duplicate. Many of the photographs of works of art in this series include annotations and research notes on the reverse or relate so closely to the research notes that the decision was made to scan them. Identyfing the duplicate photographs was difficult, thus many have been scanned. The card files of McCausland's indexes have not been scanned, nor were auction catalogs. In many cases, only the covers and title pages of publications were scanned.
6.1: Critical Biography Files, 1911-1964, bulk 1953-1964
Subseries consists of files relating to McCausland's work researching and writing a planned critical biography of the artist Marsden Hartley. McCausland began work on the biography sometime after her monograph on Hartley was published in 1952. She worked on the Hartley biography for several years off and on up until her death in 1965, though it was never completed. Files are primarily comprised of notes on Hartley's life and work (organized according to time period), as well as some research material, including typescripts and some originals of Hartley's letters, exhibition catalogs and other printed material, and scattered papers belonging to Hudson Walker and relating to Hartley. Also found are an outline and a manuscript of Chapters 1-3 of the planned biography, and some notes and research material on exhibitions, memorabilia, and portaits.
Most of the material is undated, yet it can be reasonably assumed that it was collected and created during the time period from 1953 to 1964, roughly when McCausland was working on the biography.
