This subseries consists solely of Goodrich's manuscripts for most of the catalog entries, each drafted in his catalog entry format. Unlike the version kept in the "Master Catalog" files, these catalog entry pages do not include the updates Goodrich would continuously add. These papers appear to be drafts intended for publishing, rather than working copies. More detailed "Subject" information is included, with descriptions of the depicted scene or a discussion of the sitter's history and, where applicable, his or her relationship with the artist.
From the general dating of this material, Goodrich apparently attempted a final draft twice--in the early 1970s and then again in the 1980s. Both sets consist of manuscript drafts, which he identified as "originals," as well as carbon copies and two differently revised sets of photocopies. Neither set is complete, and within each set, different ranges of entry numbers are documented in the different formats. Because it appears Goodrich worked concurrently on different copies at each of his three "offices," dating these different formats is also complicated.
With the 1970-1971 draft, Goodrich wrote his descriptions, for the most part, in numerical order, beginning in the fall of 1970 with catalog entry G61 and ending approximately five months later with catalog entry G497. A few later-dated revisions are included throughout the set. A comparison of formats suggests that Goodrich made his last revisions to the set of originals. The carbons appear to be of the earliest version, with the two sets of photocopies serving as interim versions, including some but not all of the revisions noted on the originals. The set of photocopies now identified as "Version 2" contains revisions not recorded in the "Version 1" set of photocopies. However, this earlier version does include copies of entries G1-G60, for which no originals exist.
With the 1980s set, Goodrich again worked in numerical order. With this draft, however, he wrote and/or reviewed entries over a three-year period, starting with the first catalog entry, J1, in the summer of 1983. Lower entry numbers were therefore drafted in the earlier time periods of 1983-1984; with later entries dated 1984-1985 and 1985-1986, and ending with G303. The photocopies for entries J1-G213, and identified here as "Version 2," appear to contain later revisions than the originals. Apparently in 1985 Goodrich reviewed and revised only the photocopies of these entries. His later work picks up again with his originals for entries following catalog entry G 213. These date from 1985 to 1986. The set of carbons and photocopies identified as Version 1 appear to be duplicates of the set of originals, although the set of carbons include original annotations to various entries.
