Materials which date from the 1965 appointment of first Curator (currently Director) David B. Warren to the present offer a largely complete account of the administration, activities, and policies of Bayou Bend. Most of the series in this Record Group commence with Warren's tenure, and many of the various record types increase significantly during his curatorship. These include, most notably, the provisional docent files, information on tours, chronological correspondence, and the Curator's miscellaneous subject files.
The materials include significant correspondence with Ima Hogg. Most important in this respect are the Dealer/Collector files, though occasional Hogg correspondence also can be found in the Collections Information, Docent, and Miscellaneous Subjects files.
Materials for more recent years continue the varied and complete nature of the Bayou Bend records, although it should be noted that reader files are missing for 1978 through 1979.
