2 Linear Feet
Box 1-3

Found are assorted lists, forms, and other paperwork. Records associated with McCrindle's estate, lists of bequests, sales invoices, and art collection inventories are among the bulk of the materials. Early receipts and invoices are from rare books, decorative items, antiques, and artwork purchases by Joseph and Edith Feder, McCrindle's grandparents. Also found in this series are appraisals of McCrindle's artwork and paperwork dealing with gifts and loans from his collection to museums and galleries. Appraisal companies of note are Christie's and Sotheby's, both auction houses. This series includes the contents of at least two dismantled notebooks, which include lists, inventories, and other records of his artwork donations. Some records were created by John Rowe, either as a representative for the Joseph F. McCrindle Foundation, or as an executor of McCrindle's estate.
The bulk of this series has been digitized. Certain documents containing financial information have not been digitized.
