Series 8: Printed Material, 1902-1995, undated
(Boxes 8-11, 13, OV 22; 3.4 linear ft.)

WPA items relate to the Federal Art Project and consist of published administrative reports and clippings about the project, and printed items produced by the Federal Art Project.
Printed material by Inverarity includes articles on a wide variety of topics, his book
Art of the Northwest Coast Indians
(1950), and two published portfolios,
12 Photographs by R. B. Inverarity, F.R.S.A.
(1940) and
Moveable Masks and Figures of the North Pacific Coast Indians
(1941). Among the printed material by other authors are articles, books, reports, and other items about or mentioning Inverarity, and books designed or illustrated by Inverarity.
Miscellaneous items include a catalog of the Cornish School - where Inverarity met Mark Tobey and later taught - and catalogs and brochures of Freemont College/University and the University of Scientific Method where he studied. Also of interest are a few ephemeral items designed by Inverarity for the Adirondack Museum and others.
Additional printed material can be found as attachments to correspondence (Series 2), with subject files (Series 4), and in scrapbooks (Series 6).
