Various genres comprise this subseries of items belonging primarily to Barnard, as well as to his father and son. Barnard's secretary apparently kept the daily journals, recording phone calls, appointments and various transactions. Some notes and pieces of correspondence are inserted between the bound pages. Many of the entries pertain to Barnard's dealings in Medieval artifiacts as well as to his attempts to resolve financial matters. Some of the entries are in his hand and appear to be his way of communicating with his various secretaries. Also included here is a box of postcards. Although several of the postcards contain correspondence, most are blank and appear to have been kept as reference of the French or Italian architecture or artwork depicted. Two of the postcards that depict the 1910 flood of Moret are also printed with the notation that Barnard's studio was located on that particular street. In addition to the unidentified lock of hair and small colorful feather contained in the leather billfold, several pieces of personal correspondence written by a few family members were also folded and stored in it at one time. These items are now housed in individual folders.
Items belonging to Rev. John H. Barnard include a bank book and two small notebooks in which he recorded an 1887 ocean voyage from New York to Liverpool and a trip to Europe in 1889. Another journal appears to contain notes for sermons, with scripture quotations and other observations. The elder Barnard's name is also embossed on the volume published for the dedication ceremonies of his son's sculptural commission for the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania state capitol building. The notation made in the pocket-sized volume of the New Testament appears to be in the minister's hand and to read, "Christmas 1901 from father."
There are also two sets of cancelled checks that someone meticulously glued back to the corresponding check stubs. One set of checks was signed by Barnard, and his son Monroe signed the other. A full-page, tabloid-size clipping pertaining to Barnard's Rainbow Arch, and a 1938 clipping with an aerial view of the Metropolitan's Cloisters are also included.
