Ernestine Evans papers , 1890-1968, bulk 1930-1967

Series IV: Visual material, 1890s-1963, undated

This series contains a wide array of photographs, prints, drawings and watercolor paintings. Among the large collection of photographs are a small number of images of Evans; images of schoolchildren by the renowned photographer Gordon Parks; images and manuscripts from the Magnum News Service; photographs and picture postcards from many countries around the world, including Russia, Mongolia, India and Mexico; and film stills from documentaries by Evans' friend and colleague, Robert Flaherty.

Other visual material includes unattributed life-drawings as well as drawings and paintings by children, perhaps dating to Evans' time at the Whitney Studio Club; large-format illustrated maps and posters; illustrations and page proofs, likely from books that Evans commissioned and edited while working as a literary agent; and a smattering of additional material.
