This subseries contains typescript, manuscript and printed versions of articles by Kimball, as well as associated research material, illustrations, and correspondence, primarily with publishers. As in the case of Kimball's book contributions and lectures, he was interested in and wrote about a broad range of subjects. In many cases, Kimball's interest arose from his active participation in restoration or preservation projects. The majority of Kimball's articles focus on architectural subjects in Early America, but he also wrote on modern architecture and French architecture during the reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XVI. His articles were published in a variety of journals, but most often in "The Architectural Record." Note that the "Worthy of their high mission" folder contains material pertaining to Kimball's appointment as Arnold W. Brunner Scholar of the Architectural League of New York, 1943. Articles pertaining to Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Henry Latrobe and Samuel McIntire reside in those individual subseries. Materials pertaining to the many articles Kimball wrote for the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Bulletin as well as articles publicizing the Museum in other journals are part of the Fiske Kimball Records and referenced below.
