Abstract:

The collected papers and photography collection of Grace M. Mayer gather together a lifetime of both professional and personal work. These provide a broad overview of her curatorial activities for the Department of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art including her unpublished research and writing on the life of Edward Steichen and a rich study collection of photographs by many diverse international photographers.

Mayer's collection of photographs consists predominately of gelatin silver prints received as gifts from the photographers. Largely collected here are the work of John Albok, Sonja Bullaty and Angelo Lomeo, Norbert Buchsbaum, Lucien Clergue, Bruce Davidson, Yasuhiro Ishimoto, Lotte Jacobi, Lennart Olson, Edward Steichen, Josef Sudek, and Jerry Uelsmann. Many of the prints were personally inscribed to Mayer by the photographers.

Her correspondence with photographers mainly comprises short greetings and newsy accounts of their travels, exhibitions and personal matters. Included along with the correspondence and photographs in the collection is a bibliography of Edward Steichen's published work and a chronology of his life, documented on index cards; manuscripts; clippings; notes; printed material (including auction sale catalogs, periodicals, and exhibition announcements) and artwork (including graphite and ink drawings, etchings, and watercolor paintings).
