This collection holds only prints created under the auspices of the Federal Art Project.

See N-YHS's Department of Prints, Photographs and Architectural Collections' Printmaker File (PR 58).

Immediate Source of Acquisition Note

The prints were purchased over time by N-YHS. Dates for each are noted in the container list.

Processing Information Note

The collection was initially processed by archivist Larry Weimer in December 2017. The collection was formed at that time, primarily by transferring prints from the Printmaker File (PR 58) into this new collection. Two prints were added in November 2018, four prints in February 2019, and seven prints in November 2019.

Accruals Note

Additional related prints may be acquired by purchase or donation in the future and added to the collection.
