Biographical material consists of Lovejoy's graduation catalogue from Tufts University Dental School. Ten correspondences from Walter Griffin to Lovejoy include letters, sketches, and cards. Lovejoy's research material on Griffin, compiled by Myrtle E. Lovejoy in 1978-1979, includes notes typed from Lovejoy's notebooks on Griffin's technique and notes on Griffin's father, artist Edward Souther Griffin. Also found is a copy of a 1921 receipt for painting supplies sold to Walter Griffin, three exhibition catalogs, a journal article, and news clippings related to Griffin.
Circa thirty exhibition catalogs of Lovejoy's exhibitions, and a folder of news clippings, document Lovejoy's success as a painter. Artwork consists of two portrait reliefs of Edward Souther Griffin and Walter Griffin. Photographs include a group of children labeled "Clifford with carnation," two images of Griffin's home in Stroudwater, Maine, and one photo of artwork by Edward Souther Griffin, as well as copy prints taken from some of the glass plate negatives. Glass plate negatives include two portraits of Walter Griffin, and seven images of Griffin, his home, and surroundings in Stroudwater.
Glass plate negatives have been scanned.
