repositoryArchives of American Art
collection titlePersonal and family papers, extensive correspondence with noted artists and art world figures, a large group of handwritten and edited versions of manuscripts by Pach, a selection of drawings and prints, printed material, memorandums and notes, photographs, a scrapbook, and a guestbook.

Personal and family papers consist of biographical information on Pach and his family; letters, mainly from his son Raymond who spent many years abroad pursuing an operatic career; and a travel diary, June 24 - Sept. 12, 1903 and June 14 - Aug. 2, 1904 (1 v.) and Aug. 1904 (loose p.), recording Pach 1903 trip to Haarlem, the Netherlands, and 1904 trip to London with William Merritt Chase's class in which Pach reflects on life abroad, fellow classmates Morton Livingston Schamberg and Charles Sheeler, his early interest in Japonisme and active collecting of Japanese art, including prints by master ukiyo-e artists Hokusai and Hiroshige, and the purchase in Holland of a Manga book by Hokusai. A small group of financial records, among them those of his second wife, Nikifora Pach, complete the series.
The Professional correspondence contains letters from artists, critics, collectors, and curators, 1900-1958. Among the correspondents are: Bernard Berenson, Constantin Brancusi, Van Wyck Brooks, Bryson Burroughs, Arthur B. Davies, Marcel Duchamp, Raymond Duchamp-Villon, Susan Eakins, Elie Faure, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, Jose Orozco, Maurice Prendergast, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Diego Rivera, Morton L. Schamberg, John Sloan, Leo Stein, Alfred Stieglitz, and Jacques Villon.
The writings series includes handwritten and edited versions of published and unpublished manuscripts on a variety of topics. Many are written on the backs of pages containing pencil figure studies by Pach. There are lecture notes from classes he taught at the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Mexico; several college notebooks; the text of a speech delivered in 1941 at the Society of Independent Artists dinner honoring John Sloan; memorandums, fragments of writings, and a card index noting works of art. Among the writings by authors other than Pach are poems, chapters of books, articles, and prose by Apollinaire, Baudelaire, Faure Le Roy, Mallarmé, Rouault, Villon, and others.

Within the art work series are found early sketchbooks (3 v.), drawings by Pach and unidentified artists, print portfolios (2 v.), produced by Laurel Gallery, 1947, containing hand-pulled prints by noted artists (among them Milton Avery, Reginald Marsh, and Joan Miró); one includes an etching by Pach, and the other an essay by him.

Photographs are of Pach, his family, artists and other friends, Robert Henri's and William Merritt Chase's classes at the New York School of Art, ca. 1904, of works of art, including Mexican mural projects by José Orozco and Diego Rivera, of Pach's studio, travels, and installation view of 1917 exhibition of the Society of Independent Artists.

Printed matter consists of exhibition catalogs, 1905-1940, including a priced copy of the 1913 Armory Show catalog at its Boston venue, and catalogs of exhibitions in which Pach participated; also, clippings, 1908-1977, of exhibition reviews, reports of sales, and reproductions.

titleFrederic G. Melcher-Robert Frost Collection, Accession #13024
repositoryUniversity of Virginia Library
collection titleThis collection consists of the personal and professional papers of Frederic G. Melcher, editor of The Publishers' Weekly, particularly those dealing with his collection of materials concerning Robert Frost, but also his relationships to other writers, publishers, and others of the book world. Frederic G. Melcher maintained a warm friendship with Robert Frost throughout his life and this relationship is reflected in the correspondence between the two men.

These papers, 1865-1963, include correspondence, printed ephemera, news clippings, photographs, manuscripts, etc., ca. 1,375 items (6 Hollinger boxes, 2.5 linear feet).

Most of the correspondence in series five is addressed to Melcher; when it is not addressed to Melcher either personally or as editor of The Publishers' Weekly, the recipient is noted in the guide. Many of the letters in this section were generated by responses to the invitation to a dinner celebrating Robert Frost's 50th birthday; by Melcher's invitation to various authors or other individuals to come and speak at Montclair, New Jersey; or to answer Melcher's 1934 question for The Publishers' Weekly concerning recommendations for essential reading in the coming year.

Biographical/Historical Information
Frederic Gershom Melcher (1879-1963) was born in Malden, Massachusetts, and died on March 9, 1963, only a short while after his friend, Robert Frost. Melcher's influence in the world of books was notable, having worked as a publisher and editor for more than a half century; a bookseller at Charles E. Lauriat Company of Boston and W.K. Stewart Company, Indianapolis, Indiana (1913-1918), for almost a quarter of a century; becoming co-editor of The Publishers' Weekly in 1918, and chairman of R.R. Bowker & Company in 1958.

Melcher contributed to the promotion of good literature for children by helping develop Children's Book Week (1919), establishing the John Newbery Medal (1921) for the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children, and establishing the Caldecott Medal, for the best American picture book for children (1937).
