Scope and Content Note

These files appear to be general reference files about specific periods, methods, media, and object types. Most of these files consist of clippings from magazines and newspapers that describe or picture a particular style or technique. Although notes and photographs do play a role in this series, Lichten seemed to use this as a source of information rather than ideas. The arrangement of the subject files is a close approximation of the arrangement in the card files.
