Subseries 1. Artwork Collection, ca. 1880-1933

Scope and Content Notes:

Featured here are various art works including pieces by John White Alexander, who lived with the Allen family as a young man. While working as a telegraph boy, the orphaned Alexander was taken under Edward Jay Allen's tutelage. Allen provided financial support and encouragement to the young Alexander, allowing him an artist studio in his home at "Edgehill." A photograph of Alexander as a young man and the rest of the Allen family posing outside of "Edgehill" exists in the Family Oversized, Box 193.

Other art works include prints, reproductions, and oversized Anthony Adverse posters. Some of these materials are on permanent display, please see Special Collections staff for access to these materials.
