Abstract:

This collection contains business and personal papers of sculptor Henry Dexter. Besides business letters and invoices, the collection contains personal correspondence between Dexter and his family, exhibition advertisements, publicity for sculpture sales, and a deed for a patent of a bust of General Warren. Of particular interest are a manuscript entitled "History of Sculpture in America," a manuscript catalog of items in his studio, a catalog of his statuary and paintings, and a manuscript autobiography.

After Dexter's death in 1876, his daughter, Anna Douglass, continued his business affairs. Her correspondence and letters acknowledging gifts of her father's work are also part of this collection, as well as her notes on lectures given by Louis Agassiz around 1848 and her diary of a trip to Florida.

Miscellanea in this collection include Dexter's spelling book and a genealogy of the Johannot and Brigham families.
