titleMattie E. Hewitt and Richard A. Smith photograph collection [graphic], ca. 1910-1960 (bulk 1920-1939)
repositoryThe New-York Historical Society
collection titleThe New-York Historical Society received material for approximately 485 assignments, most of them residences in Manhattan. There are approximately 5,000 photographic prints and 400 film negatives. Approximately three-quarters of the photographs are credited to Hewitt, and the remainder are by Smith.

The bulk of the clients are popular magazines and interior decorators. Views of fashionable apartment interiors, newly built houses, small urban gardens, and other residential settings display the work of decorators and the tastes of well-known people, among them designer Raymond Loewy and photographer Margaret Bourke-White. There are also interiors of hotels, restaurants, clubs, shops, and decorator exhibitions. Miscellaneous images include a 1940 "House of Ideas," a Vanderbilt family yacht, and a radio station. Captions are usually limited to client's name and address and are often dated. The decorator is identified for about half of the assignments.

Historical Note:
Noted garden and architecture photographer Mattie Edwards Hewitt (d. 1956) moved to New York city in 1909 to share a studio with Frances Benjamin Johnston. By the 1920s, she was working independently. When Hewitt retired to Boston, she left her working files to her nephew, Richard Averill Smith, who added to them many of his own prints.

After Smith's death in 1971, the Nassau County Museum received more than 12,000 photographs and distributed many to various historical societies according to their geographic interests.

titlePlaying Card and Game Collection, 1549-present (Bulk 1800-1899)
repositoryThe New-York Historical Society
collection titleThe Playing card and game collection spans the period 1546 to the present, and contains over 200 decks of playing and educational cards, as well as playing card-based board games and other game materials.

Printing formats represented in the collection include: woodcut, engraving, lithography, chromolithography, and photomechanical printing. The cards in this collection represent several types of decks: standard, political, bezique, and "novelty" decks containing transformation cards (in which the suit marks are incorporated into an unrelated design) or translucent cards which reveal hidden scenes (often erotic in content) when held to the light. Fortune telling and tarot cards also appear in the collection, as do metamorphosis cards and games. The cards cover a wide range of American and European styles. The collection’s incomplete deck of German cards with the date of 1546 is thought to be the earliest surviving date on cut cards.

Cards from Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Czechoslavakia, Belgium, Hong Kong, Hungary, and the Netherlands are included in this collection. American cards in the collection were manufactured by the U.S. Playing Card Co., W & S.B. Ives, McLoughlin Bros., A.D.F. Randolph & Co., Tiffany and Company, the Murphy Varnish Company, and Parker Brothers.
