Abstract:

The Roberts records document all activities of the Museum and include correspondence with donors, lenders, and vendors; Board of Trustees and Governing Committee members, especially Edward C. BLum, Walter H. Crittenden, James G. McDonald, Caroline A.L. Pratt, Sidney W. Davidson, and Adrian Van Sinderen; New York City agencies; and staff of other museums and cultural institutions. Reflecting Roberts' interest in curatorial matters, exhibition files and files documenting the Museum's relations with other museums are more numerous and weighty than in the previous administration. Files on the travelling exhibitions created for the Office of the Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs and the exhibition "America South of U.S." are of particular importance.

The effects of the pre-war period and the initial years of World War II are evident in files on defense measures, including the temporary evacuation of works of art, relations with agencies such as the Red Cross, and the creation of new or installation of loan exhibitions on civil defense, home-front topics, and the cultures of areas involved in the war.

During Roberts' administration, the Inter-Museum Council (later the Museums Council of New York City) was founded; although he was not directly involved, the files contain considerable documentation of the process. This series also documents Roberts' service on the advisory board of another new organization, the American Art Research Council (1941-43), and on various advisory committees for the New York World's Fair.
