4Title:  Charles Blum, Jr., papers, 1925-1988   
 Creator:  Blum, Charles William, 1925-1991 | Davison, Robert, b. 1922 | Saraceno, Salvaore, b. circa 1931 | Rosengarten Family Fund 
 Notes:  The Charles Blum, Jr. papers, dating from 1925 to 1988, document Blum's personal life through letters, journals, photographs and memorabilia. The bulk of the collection consists of correspondence, mostly to and from Blum; but also includes a few letters to people within his circle, in particular Robert Davison and Salvatore Saraceno. Because Blum, Davison, and Saraceno maintained a strong friendship throughout their lives, there are many letters addressed to both Blum and Saraceno from Davison, as well as letters written to and from Saraceno and Davison. The letters, dating from 1954 to 1979, address numerous topics including Blum's work as an artist; his relationships with Davison and Saraceno, as well as others; opinions on love, romance and homosexuality; life in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico; and opinions on the literary, theatrical, and dance scenes of the 1950s. In the letters, most of which are very personal in nature, Blum discusses people he has met, including Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) in 1954 and Emilio Baz Viaud (1918-1991), as well as people with whom Davison is associated, including Leo Lerman, Valerian Rybar, Julian Green, Susan Sontag, and Paloma Picasso. These frank letters will be of value to researchers interested in American expatriate artists, homosexuality in the 1950s, and the lives of Charles Blum, Robert Davison, and Salvatore Saraceno. The journal entries, dating from 1950 to 1956, are equally frank and discuss many of the same topics as the letters; however there are a much smaller number of journal entries than letters and they cover a shorter period of time. Together with the letters, however, the journals help to provide a fairly full view of Blum's life and personality. The collection contains hundreds of photographs and snapshots, almost all of which are unidentified. It is probable that many of the photographs of children include Blum or his sister Patricia, however, it is impossible to say so with any certainty. There are many photographs of the architecture and local scenery of San Miguel de Allende in Mexico, as well a few photographs of art work, presumably by Blum or Davison. Finally, the collection includes some memorabilia including an advertisement for one of Blum's exhibits in New York, the birth announcement and baby book from Blum's infancy, newspaper clippings, and passports. Taken as a whole, this collection provides researchers with an insight into the world of a gay artist in the 1950s, as well as into the art communities of New York and San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. Blum offers a frank and open commentary upon the world in which he lived and on his own faults and insecurities, relationships, and art.

8Title:  Johan Thorsten Sellin Papers, 1886-1990   
 Creator:  Sellin, Thorsten, 1896-1994 
 Notes:  The Johan Thorsten Sellin Papers are made up of 63 boxes of material including correspondence; biographical materials; drafts of writings; notes; clippings about Sellin's work; minutes; reprints of criminology articles; memorabilia; and some photographs. The collection spans through Sellin's professional life, beginning with correspondence from before Sellin had received his doctorate through to the very last years of his life. The material contained in this collection is largely professional, not personal, and documents Sellin's interests and works as a scholar and teacher of sociology and criminology, as well as his works in Swedish-American causes. The Correspondence series, the largest single series within the collection, contains numerous items from both individuals and organizations in a variety of languages (English, Swedish, French, German, Spanish, Danish, Dutch, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese). The majority of the correspondents are sociologists, criminologists, other social scientists, lawyers, politicians or judges. Items mostly relate to the evolution of criminology as a discipline throughout the 20th century, as well as its international study. Topics covered particularly well within this series include the history of the International Penal and Penitentiary Foundation (1932-1971), the prison experiment at the state prison colony in Norfolk, Massachusetts (1933-1934), the development of the Uniform Criminal Statistics Act (1944-1969), the development of the University of Pennsylvania Center for Studies in Criminology and Criminal Law (ca. 1950-1985), and the United Nations commission on Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders (1949-1956).

14Title:  A. Price Dillont papers, circa 1850s-1945   
 Creator:  Dillont, A. Price (Abel Price), 1871-1933 
 Notes:  This collection documents the life, career, and family of A. Price Dillont, a printer from New York and New Jersey, who was professionally active from 1891 until his death in 1933. The collection is arranged in three series: Series I. Correspondence; Series II. Papers and materials relating to the Dillonts' printing careers; and Series III. Family material. The bulk of Series I. Correspondence consists of letters to and from A. Price Dillont and his family, friends, and business colleagues. A. Price Dillont's main correspondent in the collection is his friend and, at one time, business partner, Thomas F. Hotchkiss (1868-1947), who worked for the Phoenix Horse Shoe Company of Poughkeepsie, New York, and later, Joliet, Illinois. The letters between the two are friendly and discuss news, work, and occasionally, financial concerns. During the time of correspondence, it does not appear that Dillont and Hotchkiss were working together at Hotchkiss & Dillont. Dillont also corresponded with his grandmother, father, stepmother, aunt, sister, wife, and daughter. These letters are loving and full of news, and provide a glimpse into A. Price Dillont's role within the family. There are also a few letters to and from friends and/or business colleagues. This series also contains a number of family letters not addressed to or written by A. Price. Correspondents include Elizabeth Evans Dillont, second wife of John Francis "Frank" Dillont; Frank Dillont; Mahala Dillont, first wife of Frank Dillont who died probably in 1874; Maude Nathalie Throckmorton Dillont, wife of A. Price Dillont; Nathalie Dillont, daughter of A. Price and Maude Dillont; and Sarah "Sadie" Harriot Dillont, sister of A. Price Dillont. There are a few letters to unidentified people. By and large, the correspondence documents warm relationships between family members. The letters are arranged in alphabetical order by the family member who was the recipient of the material. Series II. Papers and materials relating to the Dillonts' printing careers documents the work of both A. Price Dillont (active from 1891 to at least 1926) and his father, John Francis "Frank" Dillont (active from 1862 until his retirement in 1912), who worked in New York City. Much of the material, particularly the samples, are undated and therefore, it is difficult to ascertain who created or collected the material; but the majority is presumed to have been created and collected by A. Price Dillont. This series is arranged first by known creator and then alphabetized by topic thereafter. A. Price Dillont's career is documented through his artistic work and personal design for advertising, newspaper and magazine articles regarding him, notebooks and accounts, patent documents, and scrapbooks. Through his scrapbooks, which contain clippings, event and conference photographs and ephemera, and some of his own writings, it is possible to follow his career. The years best documented in his scrapbooks are 1914 through 1922. One scrapbook contains examples of his work and specifications and prices which may have been used like a portfolio. To a lesser extent, this series documents the work of John Francis "Frank" Dillont with an advertisement for the sale of type and printing machinery from his business with Willis MacDonald, a photograph of him with MacDonald, and stationary from his work with Prospect Heights quarterly. Clippings about his retirement in 1912 and his death in 1915 can be found in A. Price Dillont's scrapbooks. This series also contains conference ephemera, mock-ups for printing jobs, paper price lists and specifications, photographs of colleagues in the print industry and print shops, examples of blotters, and samples of blotting paper, felt, and paper. There are a few publications about the print industry, including The upholstery dealer and decorative furnisher, The printing art, and Printing found within the collection. This collection not only documents the careers of the two Dillonts, it also provides a glimpse into the paper and print industry in New York during the last half of the 19th century and the first third of the 20th century. Series III. Family material is arranged in two subseries: A. Papers and ephemera and B. Photographs. As is the case with the rest of the collection, A. Price Dillont is the figure best documented in A. Papers and ephemera. This subseries includes school records, limited financial records, ephemera related to his involvement in organizations and official documents relating to the military and jury. Of particular interest may be the evidence of his very sentimental connection to his wife, Maude, including affectionate notes about her and a flower saved. There are financial records for Frank and Elizabeth Dillont and Maude Dillont; as well as school records for John and Nathalie, A. Price and Maude Dillont's children. There are also a number of records relating to the death and funerals of Dillont family members. Members of the Dillont family appear to have been enthusiastic photographers, experimenting with and collecting photographs. Subseries B. Photographs contains more than 700 images in the form of tintypes, cabinet cards, cartes-de-visite, cyanotypes, snapshot prints, glass negatives, and film negatives. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these images are unidentified, and therefore, have been grouped into general topics such as children, groups, men, women, etc. The subseries is arranged first with identified images, followed by those that are unidentified. There are three photograph albums, two of which appear to largely document family. Many of the photographs in the albums can also be found in the loose images. There is one album that contains a number of tintypes of boys who are identified by surnames and were possibly schoolmates. The photographs are a mixture of portraits and candid photographs, and the bulk of these photographs are probably family members. In addition, there are a number of photographs of homes, including one in Flatbush, New York, one in Tarrytown, New York, and one in Maplewood, New Jersey, as well as a number of unidentified buildings and street scenes. There are photographs of vacations and travels, pets, and groups of people, painting a vivid picture of the life this family lived.

15Title:  Helen, Ira, and Michael Wolfert papers, 1920-2001   
 Creator:  Wolfert family 
 Notes:  This collection includes material related to the lives and work of Helen, Ira, and Michael Wolfert. It contains correspondence between the family and others; manuscripts by all three subjects, as well as a smaller amount by colleagues and acquaintances; financial documents; personal documents; photos taken by and of the family; newspaper clippings collected by the family; and notes and miscellanea. The correspondence concerns the personal and professional lives of the Wolferts. Notable correspondents include Muriel Rukeyser, Denise Levertov, and other notable twentieth century editors and poets. The wartime correspondence, in particular, helps illustrate the family's relationships during a time of national crisis. The manuscripts, with their somewhat idiosyncratic ordering and continual revision, represent the struggle (especially in regards to Michael and Helen) of each writer to produce meaningful work in the post-war years, as cohesive literary material is slowly superseded by magazine work and diffuse notes; in Helen's case, they document her somewhat eccentric hobbies, such as her fascination with space travel and ESP, as well as her deep interest in the history of The song of songs. The financial material represents Ira and Helen's growing middle-class stability in the post-war years, as well as their struggles to support Michael and Ruth, whose financial situations were more precarious. The personal material includes official documents like birth, marriage, and death certificates, as well as more intimate material, like Helen's Rorshach test and Ira's wallet and its contents. The series labelled Photographs contains many pictures of unclear provenance and subject, probably taken by Ira during his WWII-era travels and research trips for Reader's digest, but also contain portraits of the whole family, including more distant relatives. The series of newspaper clippings reflect Helen and Ira's interest in international events, particularly the state of the U.S.S.R. and Israel, two countries in which both had a special interest, as Jewish progressives and Marxist sympathizers. The series of notes and miscellanea consists mostly of material culled from the folders of correspondence which could not be identified with any particular subject.

16Title:  Jane Wright Proctor Wallis family papers, 1833-2007   
 Creator:  Wallis, Jane Wright Proctor, 1875-1956 
 Notes:  The Jane Wright Proctor Wallis family papers provide a unique glimpse into the family life of an upper class Philadelphia family during the early twentieth century through correspondence, family letters, scrapbooks, photographs, and genealogical anthologies. Centrally revolving around Jane Wright Proctor Wallis, this collection reveals her pride in the history and genealogy of the Proctor Wallis family across its many generations. The collection is arranged in five series: I. Jane Wright Proctor and Allan Dinsmore Wallis; II. Josiah Kendall Proctor; III. Genealogical materials; IV. Photographs; and V. Other family correspondence and materials. Series I. contains the bulk of materials within the collection and this material was collected and created by Jane Wright Proctor and her husband Allan Dinsmore Wallis. Researchers will find correspondence, scrapbooks, material related to the couple's fiftieth anniversary, family documents and ledgers, and clippings and ephemera. The correspondence is arranged in chronological order, primarily addressed to or sent by Jane, with only a few letters from Allan. Copies of letters which were sent to all of their children are very common throughout the collection. In 1911, Jane Wright Proctor Wallis began an annual tradition of writing a Christmas letter which was sent to friends and family. The annual Christmas letter may be an excellent place for the start of research as each family member's activities is summarized in a short paragraph. From there, researchers may wish to consult correspondence, scrapbooks, and other family members' material from the same timeframe. The Jane Wright Proctor Wallis scrapbooks primarily document the Proctor Wallis family life and range in date from 1886 to 1956, with the bulk dating from the 1920s to the 1950s. Additional materials within the series document the 50th wedding anniversary party for Jane Wright Proctor Wallis and Allan Dinsmore Wallis, miscellaneous family documents, and historical clippings and ephemera which were not part of a designated scrapbook. Researchers interested in Jane Wright Proctor Wallis and her children should consult this series as well as Series V. For more detailed information on Series I, please consult the note within the container list. Series II. consists of materials directly relating to Josiah Kendall Proctor, Jane's father. Business ledgers, papers regarding the Philadelphia Textile Machine Company, and financial documents, including information about the Proctor Trust fund, can be found within this series. Additionally, miscellaneous artifacts belonging to J.K. Proctor, which include his Civil War discharge certificate, are also located in the series. Genealogical information and anthologies involving Josiah Kendall Proctor are found in series III. Series III. contains genealogical research, resources, and anthologies created by the extended Proctor Wallis family. The anthologies are family-created documents made from photocopies of many of the materials found within this collection, and include correspondence, photographs, and articles. Also found within the series are recollections written by Jane Wright Proctor Wallis regarding her parents. Prior to donating the collection, family members organized and scanned materials. The CDs and a printed copy of the inventory are included in the collection (Box 11, Folder 13). Researchers should be aware that the arrangement of this inventory does not correspond to that listed in this finding aid. Series IV. contains a large collection of family photographs, ranging from the mid-19th century through the 1950s. Arranged by name when possible, photographs also contain many family group photos. The Wallis children were regularly photographed in a row, in order of birth, providing an annual look at the Wallis family children over time. There is significant duplication of photographs; the same photograph will often appear within the photographs series as well as in the scrapbooks and genealogical anthologies. Photographs of the Wallis's various residences are also included; some with annotation or other corresponding materials relating to the house. Series V. includes correspondence and materials from the extended members of the Proctor Wallis family. Materials created by or about Jane and Allan's ten children are found here. This series contains many legal documents, wills, scrapbooks, academic work, artifacts, and materials from various family reunions. Of particular interest may be the two scrapbooks created by Mary Wallis, a student at Friends' Central and Smith College. These volumes document her education, her activities in the Girl Scouts of America, the American Red Cross, her family and social life, and her travels, some of which include trips to Canada, the Steel Pier in Atlantic City, and the Worlds' Fair in Chicago in 1933. Researchers interested in Jane Wright Proctor Wallis and her children should consult this series as well as Series I. Researchers will find materials regarding Lawrence B. Saint, who was renowned for his medieval stained glass techniques. A family-authored biography, as well as his personal published writings, are found within this series. This collection will be of value to researchers interested in early 20th-century family life in America, the culture of domesticity, and the influence of the Protestant (Presbyterian) Church in everyday life. Additionally Series I. may be of interest to those researching the European Theater in World War II, as well as general United States history as experienced by American citizens in the first half of the 20th-century.

 Notes:  The papers of Dr. Lodewyk Bendikson span his career at the Huntington Library and the period shortly thereafter, chronicling the experimental work he did in imaging as well as the day-to-day work of the photographic department of the Huntington. The collection is divided into the following series: Correspondence (Boxes 1-3), Articles (Box 3), and Photographs (Boxes 4-12). All material is arranged chronologically wherever possible. The Correspondence series contains letters mostly to and from Bendikson arranged by year, but other relevant departmental correspondence is present as well (including letters to and from Erwin Morkisch and other staffers). The bulk of the series concerns departmental business, including purchase orders and requests for imaging, photostats, and microfilm, while the rest primarily deals with his experimental work. The Articles series is comprised of both typed and written Bendikson manuscripts, as well as the resulting published materials. Photographs include experimental and institutional prints, negatives, and lantern slides. Institutional photographs consist primarily of lantern slides showcasing the treasures of the Huntington, but also include prints and negatives for work done for manuscripts department chair Capt. R.B. Haselden and other miscellany. The experimental photographs include prints, slides, and negatives of the various projects Bendikson undertook in the areas of reproduction technique and photographic imaging. Bendikson's original labeling from envelopes and negative boxes has been preserved on sleeves whenever possible. Prints, glass negatives, and lantern slides are housed with the collection, while 181 nitrate negatives (Boxes 11-12) are housed separately in cold storage. There are related photographs of Huntington Library staff, activities, and grounds in the Photo Archive Department. Call Number: photCL 507.

20Title:  Marlboro Music School and Festival records, 1946-2013   
 Creator:  Marlboro Music School and Festival 
 Notes:  This collection comprises administrative documents, concert programs, printed promotional materials, articles and reviews, photographs, and audio-visual materials relating to the Marlboro School of Music and annual summer festival as well as the related Musicians from Marlboro touring series and the Marlboro Recording Society. The collection spans Marlboro's history from 1950 through 2013 and showcases its influence on chamber music in America as it documents its growth from a small and informally organized summer school in the early 1950s to its current status as a prestigious institution that has shaped careers and inspired the formation of numerous renowned ensembles such as the Guarneri String Quartet and the Daedalus String Quartet. The bulk of the collection consists of administrative records and these include correspondence, internal memos, financial documents, and information for and related to participants. The administrative files from the first decade of the school are minimal, but those that do exist are of interest in that they show how the administration of the school changed over the years to adapt to its growth while still trying to maintain its original philosophy. The school initially accepted amateur musicians as participants and some of the earliest letters are from applicants so young that a parent has written on their behalf. Not long after Serkin took over as artistic director and the number of applicants increased, the emphasis shifted towards accepting young professionals instead of amateurs, with the appearance of formal applications and auditions in the collection showing how the selection process became more rigorous over the years. An exception is seen in the files relating to the youth auditors program that Serkin initiated in the 1960s which offered scholarships for talented underprivileged youths to attend the summer school. An important aspect of Marlboro culture was the attitude towards playing and rehearsing. At the beginning of each year, participants were given the opportunity to request works they would like to study that summer and the scheduling subseries contains many years of these forms as well as the resultant rehearsal schedules and final tabulations of works studied and performed as well as lists of who played with whom. Serkin frequently referred to Marlboro as a "republic of equals" and this fair approach to determining the season's schedule is indicative of that sentiment. The oral history project and Marlboro recollections subseries provide excellent personal insights into the history of the school. The transcriptions of recorded interviews and the handwritten anecdotes on the backs of mailed forms offer a look at the vibrant and often familial atmosphere present at the school. Lasting friendships were forged and, in a number of cases, marriages were as well. Practical jokes were abundant and many participants fondly recall the napkin ball fights in the dining hall at the end of dinner that were always initiated by Serkin himself. The collection also highlights the recurring presence of cellist Pablo Casals and many materials in the collection relate to his participation in the festival, from the numerous recordings of orchestral performances that he conducted at Marlboro to the countless photographs and newspaper articles that focus on him as the epitome of the senior artist who was drawn to Marlboro year after year. The form and clip books subseries highlights each festival season by containing that year's relevant administrative forms, participant information, brochures, articles, and reviews. It offers a glimpse of that season's participants, the relevant works studied and performed, as well as any administrative changes the school may have undergone at the time. The materials were formerly housed in three-ring binders arranged by Marlboro administrators and their intellectual organization has been retained. The special projects subseries contains files relating to projects and events that are outside of the scope of the school and festival. It includes projects such as a Bartok benefit concert in 1965, birthday celebration plans for co-founders Blanche and Marcel Moyse, and the cello master classes taught by Pablo Casals. Printed and promotional materials are organized by season and include ticket brochures, annual festival program books, concert programs, posters, postcards, and flyers advertising the festival and related performances. Promotional materials before 1956 are essentially non-existent and become increasingly prevalent in subsequent years as the administration took an active role in promoting the school and festival. The Music from Marlboro subseries contains administrative files relating to the annual touring concert series begun in 1965 and is arranged chronologically by touring season. Documents include itineraries, programs, business correspondence, memos, articles and reviews, press releases, forms, and form letters. The photographs series contains a number of professional prints included in Marlboro's photo archive. This subseries retains Marlboro's intellectual arrangement of the photos and includes a copy of Marlboro's reference sheet for guidance. Other subseries include professional photos and contact sheets arranged by photographer's last name, unidentified amateur photos, negatives, and slides. Photos are of prominent Marlboro personalities such as Serkin, Casals, and Moyse, but also feature photographs of both senior and young artists in formal and informal settings. The audio-visual series contains film reels relating to Marlboro and Pablo Casals; long-playing records of primarily Marlboro recordings with many of them featuring Casals conducting; cassettes of formal recordings, radio broadcasts, and oral history interviews; and audio CDs of recordings and oral history interviews. This series has restricted access and researchers interested in acquiring a digital copy will be financially responsible for the transfer from the original.
