Series 7: Scrapbooks, circa 1880s-1970s
0.5 linear feet
Boxes 8 and 11

This series consists of two scrapbooks containing clippings, photographs, and exhibition announcements. Neither volume appears to have been made by Bransom himself, and both were part of the donation of Mario Cesar Romero, who had access to the Bransom estate while curating a retrospective exhibition of Bransom's artwork and creating the artwork inventory in Series 4.
Volume I consists entirely of printed material, mostly clippings and one advertisement for a book illustrated by Bransom,
The Argosy of Fables
(1921). Clippings also include multiple obituaries. Many of the items in Volume I are duplicated in the Printed Material series.
Volume II contains exhibition announcements (1929-1931), clippings (1920s-1970s), and photographs (circa 1886-1970). Original photographs have been removed from the scrapbook as a preservation measure and to provide access to Bransom's notes on the backs of photographs. Pages containing the removed photographs have been replaced by photocopies reflecting their original arrangement in the scrapbook. Many of the photographs found in this scrapbook are not found elsewhere in Bransom's papers. Identifications on the scrapbook pages were made by Mario Cesar Romero.
