Series 5: Inventory , 1928-circa 1940s
26 Linear feet
Boxes 17-43

Inventories document the thousands of pieces of decorative art and artworks Garvan bought and sold as a collector. The first section of this series is a set of inventory lists organized by Garvan's estate. These lists primarily contain the location information of each item; some lists also include price and brief physical description. The second section of the series consists of inventory files with photographs of the object. The files contain more detailed physical descriptions of the items as well as information regarding the style, source, rarity and present location and condition of the objects. These files were originally contained in leather bound binders. Garvan's collection is also documented in inventory cards. The inventory cards range from one-sentence descriptions to containing almost as much information as that found in the inventory files. At some point Garvan adopted a new numbering system for his inventory cards; this series includes both numbered and unnumbered cards.
