Biographical / Historical:
Elizabeth Campbell Fisher Clay (1871-1959) was a lithographer and etcher who worked in Massachusetts and Halifax, England.

Elizabeth Campbell Fisher Clay was born in West Dedham, Massachusetts in 1871. Her parents were Joseph and Mary Elizabeth Fisher and she had 2 siblings, Hattie and Joseph. Clay graduated from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts in 1892. She then attended the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the New York School of Art, where she studied under Robert Henri and William Merritt Chase from approximately 1898 to 1909. Around this same time, Clay traveled abroad and studied art in Holland and Spain. She also attended the Art Students League of New York and studied in Paris where she shared a studio with other art students. Robert Henri, whom Clay considered a mentor, regularly visited the Paris studio to review the students' work.

In 1908, Clay had a solo exhibition at Rowland's Gallery in Boston. In 1909, she married Howard Clay in Dedham, Massachusetts. Henry was the alderman of Halifax, England, and the couple moved there sometime after their marriage. They had three children, Howard Fisher Clay, Monica Mary, and Harriet.

Clay continued to exhibit her artwork in England for over 30 years. She exhibited at the British Society of Women Artists, the New English Art Club, the Royal Academy of Arts, the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art, the Royal Society of British Artists, the Women's International Art Club, and the Yorkshire Union of Arts. In Massachusetts, her artwork was in exhibitions at the Boston Art Club, the Copley Society of Art, and other venues.

Elizabeth Campbell Fisher Clay eventually returned to the United States and passed away in Philadelphia in 1959.

Scope and Contents:
Fifteen diaries and six travel diaries describe Smith College; feedback from Robert Henri regarding artwork; and travels to England, France, and Holland as well as to New York and California. Loose pages of notes, clippings, and occasionally objects like pressed leaves or drawings are often interleaved throughout the diaries. There are a few sketches in the diaries, but they are fairly rare. There are some diary entries that consist of loose pages. There is an audiocassette that is probably a recording of people reading selections from Clay's diaries, and digital diary entries and images. There is also a chronological list of diaries with a few notes providing context. Folders with quotation marks in the title indicate that the original diary title was retained.
Arrangement:
Diaries and travel diaries are arranged separately and are organized chronologically within each grouping. Miscellaneous items such as the list of diaries, audiocassette, and digitized materials are grouped together towards the end of the series and arranged chronologically. "Diary entries" means there are just loose pages that are grouped together by subject and the pages are were not part of a bound diary.
