Series 1: Biographical Material , 1925-circa 1978
Biographical material includes a document (in Austrian) issued by the Mexican Consulate in Vienna for d'Harnoncourt's departure for Mexico, stamped December 15, 1925.
Also found are pages from an appointment book from 1932 that provide scattered notes on d'Harnoncourt's professional and personal obligations on dates throughout the year, which included traveling with the Mexican Art exhibition to Chicago, St. Louis, Houston, El Paso, and Mexico.
The series also includes a set of index cards, and some "Notes for Family" prepared by Sarah d'Harnoncourt and referred to by her in a 1978 letter in Series 2: Correspondence. The letter explains that they were part of an effort to provide additional context to the papers for researchers and family before sending them to the Archives of American Art. The cards index references to d'Harnoncourt in publications, and published writings by d'Harnoncourt, amongst other things.
