Series 6: Business Records, circa 1900-1938
0.9 linear feet
Boxes 4-5

Business records document the activities of Barnard's studios in Moret, France and New York and include address books, card catalogue cards, employee time books, a studio inventory, and model and studio record books.
Many of the files include information about the models Barnard employed. The address books not only name the models, but in some cases include addresses and brief physical descriptions or annotations regarding the sculpture for which they were employed. Employee time records include models as well as other people whom Barnard employed, including his secretaries and studio assistants. The card catalog was primarily used to record file locations for business files and photographs of Barnard's sculptures. Additionally, a ledger style book labeled as an "Index to Correspondence" on its cover and binding actually served as a studio inventory and documented the box locations, not only of correspondence, but also books, clippings, magazines, and photographs that were moved from the "Billings Studio" to the studio at 700 Fort Washington Avenue in New York.
Files are arranged by format and then in chronological order.
This series has been partially scanned. Employee time books have not been scanned.
