Series IV: Printed Material

Language of Materials


Scope and Contents

Series IV contains seven folders of printed matter, many of which are brief articles cut from a variety of books and periodicals. Most concern Barnard's life and projects, or merely mention him, while others are simply advertisements, such as catalogs of Barnard's publications and advertisements for the American Journal of Education. Present as well are a few printed greeted cards and invitations to ceremonies and professional gatherings. Some of the items are annotated but only a few substantially. A small number of documents in this series may have been part of the correspondence file at one time for they bear index numbers.
