Brumbaugh's Collection: Correspondence including Erastus Palmer and P.A.B. Widener - 1818-1847

About the Project

Help us transcribe while you explore this collection of letters written and received by Robert Reid, Hugo Robus, Thomas Prichard Rossiter, Eugene Speicher, John Greenleaf Whittier and Peter A.B. Widener - all prominent figures in 19th and 20th century American art. The catalog record for this group of letters may help with names and context as you transcribe and review.

From his youth, Thomas Brumbaugh (1921-2011) collected autographed correspondence. Mr. Brumbaugh?s collecting instincts resulted in a unique collaborative collection. The letters in his collection provide a glimpse into the lives of a variety of 19th and 20th century American artists, including Abbott Thayer. Brumbaugh was a professor of fine arts at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, and author of many articles on American art and artists.
