1 Linear foot
Boxes 1-2

Writings include Harriet Blackstone's personal notes, hand written and typed, and two lectures on "Modern Art through the Ages" and "Modern Spanish Painters." This series also contains writings about Blackstone written by other authors. Esther Morgan McCullough wrote a biography about Blackstone and the first four drafts and complete typescript are included. McCullough's biography notes and chronology notes concerning Blackstone are also available in this series. A few years after Blackstone's death, Richard P. Wunder created a detailed catalog of Blackstone's work, a draft of which is also found here. Additionally, there are handwritten publicity extracts and "The Painter's Bruges" by traveling companion, Florence Holbrook, which describes a class taught by William Merrit Chase in Bruges, Belgium in 1912. The memoir is ilustrated with photographs taken by Blackstone of Chase, John Singer Sargent, and others.
Folders are arranged to represent the personal writings of Harriet Blackstone first and then writings about her. Unless otherwise noted, the writings are written by Harriet Blackstone.
