Abstract

Isabelle Sprague-Smith was a painter, art activist, and art educator including art instructor and principal at the Veltin School for Girls in New York City from 1900-25.   Sprague-Smith was also Director of the MacDowell Association in Peterborough, New Hampshire, and founder of the Bach Festival in Winter Park, Florida.  Her daughter, Hilda, writer of most of the texts contained within the collection, graduated from Bryn Mawr College in 1909 with a degree in History, Economics and Politics. She preceded her mother in death, passing away in 1942, the same year that the books in this collection were given to Berea College.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection consists of 31 hand written journals and clippings books written by Hilda Sprague-Smith, detailing her travels throughout Europe over various years.  Overall, the notes are centered on key art history sites, though they do include other tourist locations. The notebooks vary in size—ranging from six larger binders of notes, to leather bound journals and other journal booklets. Pasted within the pages of each book are promotional materials, flowers, tickets, or other ephemera.
