Series 2: Correspondence , circa 1883-1984
0.4 Linear feet
Box 1

This series contains Blackstone's personal and professional correspondence. Letters from family and friends tend to be about praising Harriet Blackstone's work, encouraging visits, or experiences of daily life. Notable correspondence is with Maria Oakey Dewing, Thomas Wilmer Dewing, Alice Tisdale Hobart, Joseph Cummings Chase, Stell Anderson, Mary Landis, Esther Morgan McCullough, Booker T. Washington, among others. Professional correspondence is primarily about her artwork: coordinating with curators and museums to buy or show her work, Blackstone receiving confirmation about her artwork in competitions, and legal information.
Folders are arranged alphabetically by surname of the correspondents. Four or more letters signed by the same correspondent are housed in their own folder; three or less letters signed by the same person are housed in the alphabetical folder according to their surname.
