The correspondence reflects the business and personal relationship between Zigrosser and Carrington. Letters record purchases from Weyhe by the Museum of Fine Arts, Carrington's efforts to make Weyhe Gallery the American associate of Campbell Dodgson and the Print Collectors' Quarterly, and his interest in Zigrosser's work on The Modern School. Carrington writes about his interest in art education and his work at the Children's Art Center in Boston, and his favorable impression of Zigrosser's daughter Carola. Carrington sent Zigrosser letters about business, research projects, lectures and sales, comments on Zigrosser's publications (particularly The Artist in America), and exhibitions. There is a detailed letter on Whistler's prints written a year before Carrington died.
