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.
