Box 1-3

Correspondence is with museums, galleries, friends, colleagues, arts organizations, and his wife Edith Havens Goodrich. Correspondents include W. G.

Warner, and Faith Weston. Also found is a file of letters concerning RIchard Yarde. There is also a group of correspondence concerning Goodrich's work on a catalogue raisonné of Winslow Homer.
Most of the correspondence between Goodrich, Kuniyoshi, and Marsh was sent between 1925 and 1926 when the Marshes and Kuniyoshi and his first wife, Katherine Schmidt, were traveling in Europe over the course of the year. Marsh writes of the art and architecture of Europe and reports on the doings of friends he runs across, such as Kuniyoshi, Schmidt, and Guy Pène du Bois. Many of the travel letters are illustrated.
Also found in this series are condolence letters to David Goodrich upon his father's death in 1987 from John I.H. Baur, Flora Biddle, Dean Fausett, Lawrence Fleischman, Karl and Ilse Schrag, Roy Neuberger, Helen Farr Sloan, Raphael Soyer, Ira Spanierman, Jane Turano, Betty Burroughs Woodhouse, Virginia Zabriskie, and others.
Researchers should note that additional correspondence is found among the writings and research files in Series 3 and the organizational and committee files in Series 4.
Correspondence regarding research on Winslow Homer was donated at a later date and not integrated into the Homer research files donated earlier. The bulk of Goodrich's files, including correspondence, regarding his work on Winslow Homer is found in Series 3.

4.5: Other Organizations and Committees, 1933-1982
Goodrich served on numerous additional associations and committees, including the Artists Equity Association, Artist Tenants Association, New York Attorney General's Advisory Committee on Forgery, Fraud, and as a founding member of the American Art Research Council, among many others. He also advised the Edith Halpert and Sara Roby Foundation Boards. Files contain agendas, booklets and brochures, clippings, correspondence, exhibition lists, congressional legislation, minutes, notes, photographs, and reports.
There are also materials relating to the American National Exhibition (1959). Along with Henry Hope, Theodore Roszak and Franklin C. Watkins, Goodrich selected the works of sixty-seven American artists for the American National Exhibition (1959) held in Moscow. The Chairman of the House Un-American Activities Committee, Rep. Francis E. Walter claimed that thirty-four of the included artists were affiliated with Communist activities and demanded the removal of those artists. Some of the included artists testified and ultimately, President Eisenhower intervened and allowed for the works to be shown in Moscow.
