Scope and Contents

The collection includes a small number of documents concerning the artist and poet, Rose Cecil O'Neill. Eight original drawings by O'Neill are in the collection. One of these is dated January 1900; the others are undated. They are listed individually in the container list.

Three original photographs of O'Neill are in the collection, including one by Jessie Tarbox Beals. Print matter in the collection, such as magazines and an exhibition checklist, include examples of O'Neill's drawings. A reproduction of a poster advocating women's suffrage also includes a drawing by O'Neill.

A copy of a supplement to "Poetry Folio" of 1928 has five of O'Neill's poems. Completing the collection are a few newspaper articles by or about O'Neill.


The collection is arranged by document type.
