Abstract:

Contains primarily correspondence between Barnes (or the secretary of the Barnes Foundation, Nelle E. Mullen, on Barnes' behalf) and university officials. Vice-provost John M. Fogg is Barnes' most frequent correspondent, but other members of the university in the collection include presidents George William McClelland and Harold Edward Stassen; executive vice-president William H. DuBarry; George Simpson Koyl, dean of the School of Fine Arts; Roderick M. Chisholm, who was hired by the university to teach a joint Penn-Barnes course; Glenn R. Morrow, dean of the College; Edgar Arthur Singer, philosophy professor; Frederick C. Gruber of Penn's radio station; and students Jon D. Longaker and Hannah Dorothy Clymer.

In his correspondence with university officials, Barnes frequently enclosed copies of his correspondence with individuals not associated with the university, such as Marie Clews, John Dewey, John Hospers, R. Sturgis Ingersoll and Fiske Kimball of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, C. Brewster Rhoads, Nelson Read, Henry Clifford, James A. Michener, and Horace Stern. Much of the correspondence concerns attempts to establish a joint Penn-Barnes course, which met for only a few sessions before being called off by Barnes. Other topics of the correspondence include Barnes' feuds with the Philadelphia Museum of Art and with the author James Michener. A small series of miscellaneous materials (4 folders) includes copies of writings by Barnes; newspaper and magazine clippings concerning Barnes, which extend past the dates of the correspondence to 1974; and a brochure for the 1984-1985 program at the Arboretum School of the Barnes Foundation.
