The Notebooks

Index of Subjects

This index is intended to help visitors to this site quickly locate documents and illustrations that pertain to specific topics. Not every item in the McArdle notebooks can be found in this index. For example, correspondence which was general to the artist's research, such as that discussing efforts to obtain photographs or descriptions of people, places, and things to be depicted, is not indexed unless it actually contains information about those topics. Readers seeking an understanding of the research process used by Henry McArdle to create the paintings are encouraged to take a page-by-page look at the notebooks.
