Series 3: Diaries and Daily Journals, 1900-1938
1 linear foot
Boxes 1-2

This series consists of three diaries and nine daily journals. Rather than providing detailed accounts of Barnard's life, these diaries and journals document appointments (both personal and studio-related), notable visitors to the artist's studio, progress reports on sculptures, phone calls and correspondence received, as well as letter drafts, favorite quotations and excerpts from newspaper articles. Although some of the entries appear to be in Barnard's hand, many appear to have been made by his secretary. Indeed some pages contain messages from Barnard to his secretary and vice versa.
Diaries and journals are arranged chronologically.
This series has been scanned in its entirety.
