6 Linear feet
Boxes 1-15

The bulk of the correspondence (approximately 75 percent) is written to Frederic Newlin Price, W. Frank Purdy and Ferargil Galleries by artists, dealers, and museums and other art and educational institutions. Artist correspondence is well represented with a significant number of letters from, or relating to, artists represented by the gallery including Bartlett Arkell, Randall Davey, Hunt Diedrich, Ernest Lawson, Agnes Potter Lowrie, Barse Miller, Maxfield Parrish, John Pike, Paul Sample, Wells M. Sawyer, and many others. Some correspondence relating to Price's involvement with Swarthmore College can also be found here.
Found at the end of the incoming correspondence is a folder relating to an exhibition "The Circus Comes to Ferargil Galleries," and a folder of circa 19 letters regarding the authentication and disposition of Gilbert Stuart's Lansdowne portrait of George Washington.
Outgoing correspondence consists primarily of copies of letters and memoranda written in response to the incoming material. The bulk of the outgoing correspondence ends in 1956 with one letter each from 1958 and 1963.
Incoming correspondence is arranged alphabetically by correspondent; outgoing correspondence follows, and is arranged chronologically.

Series 6: Scrapbooks , circa 1920s-1950s
5.4 Linear feet
Boxes 23-34, 40, OV 41

Scrapbooks include printed material and photographs. Printed matter primarily consists of news clippings in addition to exhibition catalogs (some annotated with prices), scattered correspondence, and other gallery documentation such as artist biographical material, press releases, exhibition lists, and exhibition guest signature lists. Photographs are primarily of artwork, with scattered photos of artists and exhibitions, including a photograph of Arthur B. Davies taken by Gertrude Kasëbier, circa 1908.
Correspondence found with scrapbooks includes a 1929 letter from Royal Cortissoz to Price expressing his opinion on the first part of Price's biography of Arthur B. Davies, a copy of which is attached to the letter. Also found is a 1952 letter from Boris Lovet-Lorski describing an accident involving a bronze sculpture that fell on him in his studio.
An attempt has been made to establish the original collation of the scrapbooks. There appears to have been one general scrapbook arranged by artist (which is incomplete), a group of smaller scrapbooks devoted to individual artists, a scrapbook for sculptors, and a scrapbook for paintings and other media (also incomplete entitled "Painting Publicity.") Found also is one exhibition scrapbook for the "New Collectors Exhibition" in 1940. Most of the photographs were removed from the scrapbooks during previous processing and are housed separately at the end of the series.
Within scrapbooks material is generally arranged alphabetically by artist. Various fragments, which were presumably housed in the general scrapbook, can be found at the end of the series.
