Series 1: Biographical Material , 1849-circa 1940s
(Box 1, 5, OV 9; 0.4 linear feet)

Biographical documents about Worthington Whittredge include his passport from his travels throughout Europe in the 1850s, a certificate of marriage to his wife Euphemia Foot, and a National Academy of Design certificate of appreciation presented to him on his 88th birthday and signed by many members. Also found here is Whittredge's ledger from Düsseldorf which contains many memorandums, addresses, lists of letters received, lists of his commissions (which often include small sketches of the artwork), and copies of documents such as his grandfather's will. This series also contains a handwritten draft of Whittredge's autobiography, which he finished writing in 1905. Additional items include a typed copy of Whittredge genealogical information, a brief letter to Whittredge from politician Nicholas Longworth, and four letters of correspondence between his daughter Euphemia Whittredge and others regarding Emauel Leutze's painting Washington Crossing the Delaware. There are also additional notes written by E. Whittredge (probably Euphemia) about Whittredge's paintings. Her notes also include a few photographs and reproductions of his artwork. Of note is a photograph of an 1849 painted miniature portrait of Whittredge.
This series has been scanned in its entirety.
