Holmes, Harry Lowe, Stanton MacDonald-Wright, Paul Manship, National Council on the Arts, National Gallery of Art, George Rickey, and S. Dillon Ripley.

The index card file only partially indexes the records of the Central Files and is arranged alphabetically by name. An asterisk before a folder denotes that the folder contains art catalogs, pamphlets, or photographs of art work.
Historical Note:
The Central Administrative File was established in order to receive records of the director, assistant director, and copies and original incoming and outgoing correspondence carried on by museum curators, administrators, technicians, and research assistants. This system was discontinued in 1975.
