Abstract:

Collection documents Billings' seventeen years as Director, from 1896 to 1913.

Bulk of the collection consists of incoming and outgoing letters and internal memoranda, mostly concerning library matters such as the purchase and exchange of books and other materials, the hiring and termination of employees, and finances. Most of the early correspondence has been lost. There are also architectural sketches and drawings, minutes of staff meetings, card files, and catalogs. Also includes materials of Edwin H. Anderson, Assistant Director and Acting Director after the death of Billings. Anderson's records as Assistant Director contain information about the N.Y. Child Welfare Exhibit of 1911.
