This subseries contains research material on a variety of topics related to Thomas Eakins's life and work. There are files on the various art schools with which Eakins was associated, including the National Academy of Design, the Art Students' League in Philadelphia and the Pennslyvania Academy of Fine Arts. These files contain copies of archival documents, such as school constitutions, student rosters, and account books, as well as Goodrich's notes and correspondence. There are also several files on important collections and collectors of Eakins' works of art and archival material, including Daniel Dietrich, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bregler, Stephen C. Clark, Joseph Hirshhorn, the Macdowell family, and many others. Many of these files contain copies of archival documents and photographs of works of art. Folders on the MacDowell collection include some original archival material, including a receipt and check by Thomas Eakins. Researchers interested in collections of archival material are encouraged to also consult the files of Eakins's correspondence which Goodrich compiled by owner; these files are located in the "Research--People--Thomas Eakins" sub-subseries. Goodrich, with the assistance of his wife Edith, also compiled files on various aspects of Eakins's works, including their sale, gift, or other disposition, provenance, and exhibition history, also located in this subseries.
