Summary:

The records document routine administrative activities prior to the complete incorporation of the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery. Included in the daily routine were: filling orders for facsimiles of photographs; responding to reference requests seeking information about art and artifacts falling under the domain of the Freer's expertise; granting permission to publish to those wanting to publish images purchased from the Freer; and correspondence regarding Freer publishing. When files contain items above and beyond the general scope of the materials, a note is made in the finding aid. Records often contain the work of a wide variety of Freer staff. When a director or curator is strongly represented, a note is made in the finding aid. Indication of a few of the directors or curators does not negate the existence of other Freer personnel. Some persons represented in these records include William Reynolds Beal Acker, Carl Whiting Bishop, Daisy Furscott Bishop, Nettie Brooks Bishop, Charles Lang Freer, Grace Dunham Guest, John Ellerton Lodge, James McNeill Whistler, Archibald Gibson Wenley, and Katharine N. Rhoades. Materials include brochures, clippings, correspondence, memoranda, photographs, telegrams, and reports.

Descriptive Entry

The Freer Gallery of Art Central Files are comprised mostly of the documentation of routine office procedures. Included in the daily routine were: filling orders for facsimiles of photographs, responding to reference requests seeking information about art and artifacts falling under the domain of the Freer's expertise, the Freer granting permission to publish to those wanting to publish images purchased from the Freer, and correspondence regarding Freer publishing.

All folders in the Central Files contain such routine documentation. When folders contain items above and beyond the general scope of the materials, a note is made. Folders often contain the work of a wide variety of Freer staff. When a director or curator is strongly represented in the folder, a note is made. Indication of a few of the directors or curators does not negate the existence of other Freer personnel.

Approximate date spans are indicated for each folder. A final note is made about folders containing preservation concerns (i.e., folded papers, photographs, telegrams, etc.). The folders are arranged alphabetically and then chronologically.
