Abstract:

These papers, dating from 1907-1931, chiefly document the construction and furnishing of Henry Clay Frick's New York residence at One East 70th Street, and encompass the period from Frick's acquisition of the property through the death of his widow in 1931. Materials include contracts, construction specifications, correspondence, architect's certificates, accounts payable vouchers, account books, financial records, and inventories, as well as documentation of activities at the house after its construction, additions to the building, and maintenance and improvement of the property.

Series I through IV in this collection directly concern the construction of One East 70th Street. These papers give insight into the bidding and awarding of contracts, construction progress, auditing of accounts, and billing disputes. Correspondence of architect Thomas Hastings and his firm, Carrère and Hastings, construction superintendent D.B. Kinch, and Frick secretary F.W. McElroy appear frequently in these papers. Series V documents furnishings for the house, including carpets, draperies, furniture and decorative arts, wall coverings, light fixtures, and mantelpieces. Files of Elsie de Wolfe and White, Allom & Co. comprise the bulk of this series, although purchases from Duveen Brothers, E.R. Bacon, Jacques Seligmann, and others are documented as well.

The last two series (VII and VIII) are devoted to postconstruction and estate matters, staffing, and family activities. They include inventories, additions such as the proposed sculpture gallery and Frick Art Reference Library, volumes documenting payroll, employee service, and household expenditures, and daily diaries of household events.
