1.9: Retrospective Materials, 1939-1963

This series consists of materials related to retrospective accounts of the Armory Show from the 25th and 50th anniversaries of the exhibition, in 1938 and 1963. Items from the 25th anniversary include an article by Frank Crowninshield in
Vogue
magazine, and Walt Kuhn's pamphlet, "The Story of the Armory Show" (1938), which was later reprinted in the
Art News
annual of 1939. Additional items in this series, including a typescript catalog, a series of photographs of the Armory building exterior dated 1962, and reproductions of clippings and artwork, seem to have been gathered for the 50th anniversary exhibition held in 1963. The reproductions in this series were not made from the Armory Show records in this collection. Additional documents related to the Kuhn pamphlet can be found in the Walt Kuhn Family Papers (Series 4).
