Abstract:

The Saidie A. May Papers contain the correspondence, art collection related papers, financial papers, and photographs of Saidie Adler May and document her art purchases and donations to the Baltimore Museum of Art as well as other museums. A significant amount of correspondence, research notes, and other material relating to Mrs. May and her collections that was created by BMA staff is also included. The staff continues to add to this collection as materials are found or created that relate to Mrs. May.

Series 1, Art Collection, contains correspondence, lists, notes, research materials and other documents relating to Mrs. May's art collections. The Baltimore Museum of Art staff created a significant portion of this material after Mrs. May's death.

Series 2, Financial Papers, contains documentation relating to Mrs. May's art purchases from 1919 until her death. A large part of the material consists of receipts and invoices from art dealers. This material is first divided into American Museums and Galleries and Foreign Galleries. Those dealers from whom Mrs. May purchased numerous items are filed separately. A few general receipts for book purchases are filed at the end of the subseries.

Series 3, Correspondence, contains correspondence between Mrs. May and various museums, galleries and artists mostly relating to her purchases of artworks and their exhibition and donation to museums. A large amount of the correspondence relates to Mrs. May's dealings with the Baltimore Museum of Art, particularly her donations of the Renaissance Room and the Members' Room for Modern Art and the particulars of their installations.

Series 4, Photographs, contains photographs of works in Mrs. May's collection, several of the rooms she donated to the BMA, artists, and Mrs. May herself.

Series 5, Paintings, contains three copies by Mrs. May of paintings in the Louvre.
