About the Project
Celebrate Women's History month by transcribing one of Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney's journals. Whitney was a sculptor, art patron, writer, and the founder of the Whitney Museum of Art. She began keeping diaries as a child, and maintained the habit into her adulthood. Whitney wrote this diary from September through December of 1980. This, and her other diaries, and extensive material which documents her life and career are fully digitized and available through the Gertude Vanderbilt Whitney Papers on the Archives of American Art website.
