Abstract:

The collection is primarily comprised of photographs, drawings, and correspondence related to Bacon's career with the Ford Motor Company and the Edison Institute (now The Henry Ford). The material is arranged into five series. The Golden Jubilee painting series (2.8 cubic ft. and 1 oversize box) is comprised of pamphlets, notes, lists, correspondence and photographs related to the painting created by Bacon entitled "Celebration of the Golden Jubilee of the Invention of the Incandescent Electric Light" (also known as the "Dedication of the Edison Institute of Technology"). The photographs are mainly portraits of many of the invited guests who attended the October 21, 1929 celebration honoring the opening of the Edison Institute and 50th anniversary of Thomas Edison's discovery of incandescent light. Bacon obtained the photographs six years later from 266 individuals ranging from Henry Ford's personal friends to world business and political leaders. The Irving Bacon personal materials series (0.4 cubic ft. and 1 oversize box) primarily reflects Bacon's interest in the theater world and is comprised mainly of photographs and sketches of actors, actresses, and stage sets. The Greenfield Village and Henry Ford Museum series (1.2 cubic ft. and 1 oversize box) is a large assortment of photographs, notes, and various types of artwork relating to Ford related personalities and buildings that Bacon painted or intended to paint. The Henry Ford related work series contains work Bacon did for Henry Ford. Included are miscellaneous printed materials, photographs, sketches, and maps (photographed). The Dearborn Independent series (1 oversize box) includes sketches, and color drawings created for the Dearborn Independent.
