Scope and Content Note

These records were generated by Joseph Rishel and Peter Sutton and consist of general correspondence and subject files combined in one alphabetical arrangement. The exhibition records, filed under "E," pertain primarily to "possible" shows. Other documentation includes loans agreed to, refused, and cancelled, the Museum's Painting and Sculpture Committee, and the public program "Show and Tell." A second subgroup consists of records for a proposed, and later cancelled, exhibition of the 18th century French painter Jean Baptiste Oudry. A third subgroup pertains to several other exhibitions, including "Sports in Art" (1980), "Treasures of Ancient Nigeria," (1982) and a cancelled show featuring Lucas van Leyden. Folder-level inventories for the first and second subgroups are available in the Archives.
