The artist best documented in this subseries is Thomas Eakins. Most of the correspondence is between Kimball and the artist's widow, Susan Macdowell Eakins, concerning the gifts she and family friend Mary Adeline Williams made to the Museum of numerous works by her husband as well as the subsequent exhibition and catalogue of his works. A number of files pertain to the Museum's collection of miniatures, most of which were the property of members of the Pennsylvania Society of Miniature Painters.
