Twenty National Academy of Design scrapbooks document the organization's activities from 1828-1939 and include clippings and ephemera. Clippings from contemporary periodicals illuminate perception of the Academy in the public press, or pertain to academicians and persons related to the Academy. Topics include exhibition reviews and announcements; jury of selection activities and decisions; Academy elections; awards, prizes, honors and scholarships; school affairs; building news; and obituaries both in the press and published by the Academy. Ephemera includes announcements, invitations, tickets, programs, flyers, circulars, stationary, constitutions, and forms for student applications, certificates, and awards. A few lists and some correspondence are also found among the scrapbooks. Three of the scrapbooks are devoted to specific topics, including one for the Society of American Artists, one for both the Society of American Artists and the Society of American Fakirs, and one for the Academy's centennial exhibition. Additional description for thirteen of the notebooks was prepared by an Academy archivist and is filed in box 56, folder 11.
