This sub-subseries documents the eleven articles Kimball wrote for the magazine Antiques during the early 1930s. While most focus on furniture ornamentation attributed to Samuel McIntire, Kimball also wrote of other furniture carvers who were active in Salem, Massachusetts, during the same time period. According to a brief write-up in House Beautiful, Kimball's first article on McIntire's furniture carvings, written as a five-part series, served as the first scholarly examination to prove that the 18th century architect did such work. Papers documenting Kimball's article written in response to two articles by Mabel S. Swan, are also included. The printed versions of Kimball's rebuttal as well as Swan's December 1931 article are included.
In addition to files of general correspondence, the bulk of documentation is arranged by article. Each consists of manuscripts and typescripts, and most include the photographs or clippings Kimball marked up as figure illustrations to each article, as well as various research material. For Kimball's five-part series there are also printed versions of the articles, most of which Kimball notated with comments of further investigation. In a few article folders, some of the correspondence post-dates the year of publication. Most pertain to Kimball sending copies of the articles in answer to later inquiries.
