Series 7: Print Materials , 1918-1985
(Boxes 4-5, 10; OV 12-13; 1.6 linear feet)

This series contains exhibition catalogs, clippings, periodicals, book illustrations, magazine illustrations, printed reproductions of artwork, monographs about Curry, scrapbooks created by Curry and his relatives, and other miscellany. This series includes print materials gathered during Curry's lifetime and after his death.
Magazine illustrations include some of Curry's early commercial artwork from illustrated magazines such as Country Gentleman, Boy's Life, and Western Weekly. The first magazine illustration in the series is annotated indicating that it was Curry's first illustration. Clippings are mostly related to Curry's artwork, his residency at the University of Wisconsin, and his death in 1946.
Exhibition catalogs are from Curry's solo and group exhibitions. Early catalogs contain some annotations. Reproductions of Curry's paintings and drawings are found in a variety of media including book and magazine covers, pamphlets, and advertisements.
John Steuart Curry's childhood scrapbook contains clippings from pictorial magazines, photographs of livestock, and a couple of sketches. Later scrapbooks kept by his wife, sister, and brother are also found, and contain mostly clippings.
Articles about Curry found in the periodicals are duplicated in clippings. Additional print materials are found throughout the collection. See series descriptions for further details.
