1.3: Diaries, 1865-1909

There are forty-five volumes of daily diaries in which Smillie describes his paintings, drawings and prints, and references over 200 artists with whom he was acquainted. Loose items originally filed within the diaries include letters, notes, sketches, a silhouette, calling cards, receipts, printed material, and a photo of Smillie, among many other items.
This subseries is arranged in chronological order with materials tucked into diaries at the end of the subseries and arranged by type. The loose items had been removed from the diaries at an earlier time, most likely upon microfilming, and it is not clear in which diary they were originally filed.
