Abstract:

Diaries kept by Dunlap for the periods May 20-July 26, 1797; July 27-Dec. 13, 1797; Dec. 14, 1797-June 1, 1798; Oct. 15, 1819-April 27, 1820; and June 26, 1833-Dec. 26, 1834. Dunlap's interests and activities touched almost every phase of the intellectual, cultural, and aesthetic life of the United States during that time. He notes daily activities, copies letters and legal agreements, enters accounts, drafts works of literature, and makes notes on theater history and design history for two books which were eventually published. Some volumes include pencil or ink sketches; there is also one watercolor.

Topics covered in these scattered volumes include 1797-1798, Dunlap's work as a theater manager including the Old American Company of Comedians at John Street Theatre and his partnership with John Hodgkinson managing the Park Theatre (a.k.a. the New Theatre); 1819-1820, his attempts to earn a living as as a portrait painter and his establishment of a reasonably successful studio in Norfolk, Virginia; 1833-1834, Dunlap had just published his "History of the American Theatre" and would see his "Rise and Progress of the Arts of Design" published in 1834; he continued to paint portraits in spite of poverty and ill health as well as to read contemporary literature, meet with his many friends, and take an active role in the National Academy of Design.
