Box 1-3

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

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.
