Abstract:

Correspondence, approximately 500 black and white photographs of George Washington portraits, handwritten and typed notes, annotated volumes, printed material, some drafts of Morgan's writings, and copies of diaries and letters document John Hill Morgan's research on portraits of George Washington and other early American works. Papers date from 1920-1944, with a few printed items dating from 1892-1913. The bulk of the collection contains Morgan's research and correspondence for his 1931 book, "The Life Portraits of George Washington and Their Replicas," which he co-authored with Mantle Fielding.

Also of note is Morgan's research on Gilbert Stuart, which includes reference materials and his annotated volumes of "Gilbert Stuart: An Illustrated Descriptive List of His Works" (1926) by Lawrence Park. Additional research in the collection concerns portraits of George Washington not included in Morgan's or Park's books, and fakes of early American oils and drawings: Frank Bayley's sale of a Washington portrait later determined to be a copy (in Series IV: Gilbert Stuart), and a series of fake drawings sold in the 1920s and early 1930s by a man using various aliases, including George J. Shepard, Ferdinand Danton and John J. Hughes (in Series V: Shepard-Hughes-Danton Fakes).
