Series 2: Subject Files , 1940-1960, undated
(Box 2; 0.25 linear ft.; Reels 5880-5881)

Subject files, arranged alphabetically, represent committees, organizations, and conferences in which Mangravite participated as a committee member or speaker. They contain printed matter, minutes, and notes. The file for the American Art Research Council contains painting registration forms completed by Mangravite. The file of printed matter concerning art courses in France and Italy probably was assembled for his daughter, Denise, who studied in Rome during the summer of 1955. Of particular interest is the file titled "Committee for the Study of the Practice of Art Courses, sponsored by College Art Association," which investigated how art was being taught and reported on its findings. Because the members of the committee - George Biddle, Jean Charlot, Bartlett H. Hayes, J. Ward Lockwood, Peppino Mangravite (chairman), Daniel Catton Rich, Boardman Robinson, Edward W. Root, and Franklin C. Watkins - were unable to gather as a body, the work of the committee, including preparation and editing of its final report, was conducted by correspondence.
Subject files are on reels 5880-5881.
