Series 6: Printed Material , 1942-1990
5.5 Linear feet
Boxes 7-11, 17-18, OV 20, FC 35-37

Series includes annual reports of museums, published arts-related calendars, auction catalogs, brochures from organizations with which Davis had some affiliation, exhibition announcements and invitations, exhibition catalogs, magazine articles, newspaper clippings, newsletters, posters, press releases, and other published material. Most exhibition announcements and catalogs are for Davis's solo exhibitions or group shoes in which his work was shown, although a few documents related to exhibitions of other artists are also found. A 1988 publication of proceedings from an Artists' Congress of the Coalition of Washington Artists is also found.
Photocopies are found of some printed material, most of which were assembled by Percy North in her bibliographic research on Davis after his death. When original copies of this material was not found in the collection, photocopies were integrated with other like materials during processing.
Series is arranged by type of material, and large groups such as catalogs and clippings are filed chronologically within each type. Drafts of many of the articles by or about Davis are found in series 5, Writings. Percy North's notes and annotated photocopies related to her bibliographic research are also found in series 5. Additional printed material is found in series 1, Biographical Materials, and series 4, Business and Estate Records.
