Series 1: Scrapbooks , 1936-2007, undated.
(Box 1; 0.1 linear ft.)

The scrapbooks contain a variety of material: newspaper articles and publicity clippings, black and white photographs, recital and exhibition programs, correspondence, original art work by Art Center students, pamphlets, class and workshop schedules, personal comments, bulletins, flyers, surveys of activities, invitations, lists of artists in Sioux City and vicinity, and Christmas and thank you cards. Also found are the script and program for a three-act play, The Shoe Bears, and the program for a performance of Uncle Tom's Cabin.
Frank-Rush collected articles from two newspapers in order to make the scrapbooks. This was her personal copy; duplicates were presented to the Central Library in Sioux City and to the regional WPA office. Items pre-dating the Art Center concern Frank-Rush's participation in an art contest for a scholarship.
The electronic record (ER) in Series 3 contains scanned images from both scrapbooks.
