Abstract:

The Dealer/Collector Files contain correspondence and invoices which document transactions conducted between Miss Ima Hogg and various dealers in antique furniture, oriental rugs, decorative arts, paintings, and prints. The papers illustrate in detail Miss Hogg's dedicated pursuit of the creation of a collection of decorative arts at Bayou Bend. Most of her collecting was accomplished between 1917 and the early 1970s. The papers also illustrate the work of the professional curatorial staff which arrived with the conversion of Bayou Bend from a private home to a public museum facility. At some time after the opening of Bayou Bend in 1966 the Dealer/Collector Files were adapted for administrative use by the museum's staff. Curatorial correspondence and other institutional papers dating from the 1960s to 1981 were merged with Miss Hogg's original correspondence during these years. The papers consist largely of correspondence between dealers and Miss Hogg or her secretary, Miss Jane Zively; the curatorial correspondence of David B. Warren and Barry A. Greenlaw; invoices and receipts for purchases; auction and exhibition catalogues; business cards; and newsclippings. In addition there is extensive corespondence between Miss Hogg and Charles F. Montgomery (then Director of the Henry Francis Du Pont Winterthur Museum), who advised her on acquisitions, on matters concerning the care and cataloguing of her collections, and on the formal conversion of Bayou Bend from a private home to a museum.
