Summary The bulk of the collection documents the research conducted by the College Art Association of America for their publication, "The Index of Twentieth Century Artists," through correspondence, exhibition catalogs, press releases and news clippings. Of particular interest is the correspondence between the College Art Association staff and those artists considered for inclusion. Most of this correspondence was with American artists, including Paul Manship, Alexander Archipenko, Walter Pach and Alexander Stirling Calder, though French artists are also found. Also included in this collection are exhibition notices received by the staff of "Parnassus," another College Art Association publication.
