Abstract:

Papers consist chiefly of incoming correspondence, including circular letters, telegrams, statements, reports, memoranda, and notes, as well as enclosures and related material. In some cases, copies of Henry Clay Frick's outgoing responses are also included. Topics discussed include business dealings, investments, art collecting, philanthropy, politics, real estate, and family matters. Notable business correspondents include members of the Carnegie, Phipps, Mellon, Morgan, and Rockefeller families, as well as executives in the coke, coal, iron, steel, railroad, and banking industries.

Letters to Frick on the subject of art collecting range from offers of paintings and other objects available for purchase, to transactional correspondence regarding the acquisition of works and administration of the collection. The bulk of Frick's correspondence concerning art can be found under the name of his principal art dealer, M. Knoedler & Co., and under Charles Carstairs, also of that firm. Other correspondents on this topic include Duveen Brothers, Roger Fry, Arthur Tooth & Son, and Alice Creelman. Additional art correspondence can be found in the Henry Clay Frick Papers, Series I: Art Files and in the Henry Clay Frick Art Collection Files in this repository.

Other letters in this series give information about Frick's philanthropic contributions, political interests and connections, real estate dealings, and private life. Frick's charitable donations included gifts to universities, museums and other cultural institutions, hospitals, churches, and civic organizations. His prominent political connections are evidenced by correspondence with Senators Boies Penrose, M.S. Quay, and Philander Chase Knox, and various U.S. Presidents, particularly Theodore Roosevelt. Topics discussed in Frick's political correspondence include campaign contributions, nominations and appointments, and the political climate of the time. Frick's correspondence concerning real estate details the acquisition, improvement, and administration of property, whether for the family's personal use, or for commercial, industrial, or rental purposes. Of note is Frick's correspondence with various architects of the period, including F.J. Osterling, Thomas Hastings, and Daniel Burnham. Papers also document aspects of Frick's private life, including hobbies and other interests, his relationships with immediate and extended family members, and the operation of his office and household.
