Writings, 1890-1995, 2007, undated


Scope and Contents

John G. Johnson and his collection of art are the topics featured in nearly all the writings that comprise this series. The published references consist of newspaper, journal and magazine articles, collectively offering more than a century's worth of publicity and scholarly criticism. Working files and lecture typescripts created by Marceau and contemporary colleagues are also included, along with writings in which the collection is not featured or of subjects totally unrelated.

Documentation of major catalogues devoted to the Johnson Collection and published before 1973 resides in the "Publications" series.
