Art and Design Collection Catalogues and Inventories (Digital Surrogates)

Digital Surrogates of the Art and Design Collection Catalogues and Inventories consist of three ledger volumes including Art Gallery Inventory, Catalogue of the School of Art and Design of the Illinois Industrial University, and Art and Design Inventory. Ledgers provide an inventory of collections and materials held by Art and Design and listing item description, date acquired, source, value, date of disposal or transfer, and campus location of items transferred from Art and Design. Registers record art and casts acquired as early as 1876 although they appear to have been compiled or annotated at a later date (1891, 1907-14) as an inventory of art work, casts, copies, and drawing and sculpting equipment including model forms, tables, trestles, easels, frames, and tools.

This collection is managed by the University of Illinois Archives and does not feature precise descriptive information for each item. Discover its contents by browsing the folders and files. For more information, contact an archivist at
