This series contains documents related to John Steuart Curry's business transactions and personal finances. Records include contracts, account books, receipts, notes, correspondence, bills, bank statements, tax forms, stock certificates, deeds, copyright certificates, photographs, and lists of artwork.

Records of artwork include a small card file, photographs of artwork, copyright certificates, and lists of artwork, most of which appear to be related to exhibitions.
