There are 14 appointment books ranging from 1955 to 1973 that include business dates, daily entries, notes, and occasional sketches. Notes are on various subjects such as prices Scull payed for paintings; appointments with art dealers such as Richard Bellamy, Leo Castelli, Andre Emmerich, and Henry Geldzahler; and visits with artists such as Walter De Maria, Mark di Suvero, Michael Heizer, James Rosenquist, and Lucas Samaras. There are also scattered items interleaved between the pages of the appointment books, usually in the form of business cards, receipts, loose notes, and other miscellany.
This series is arranged chronologically. Large amounts of loose material from appointment books are housed in separate folders immediately after the volume the items came from.
The bulk of this series has been scanned. Materials that have not been scanned include blank pages and duplicates of papers, such as photocopies of documents already in the same folder.
