Overview

This collection contains the information compiled by Sara Sanderson for an article based on a diary written by Marguerite Richey in 1928 while in New York City with her husband, Oakley Richey. Oakley Richey was a Herron School of Art graduate and instuctor. The diary was discovered by Sara Sanderson who subsequently researched and wrote an article based on the diary.

Biographical / Historical

In 1928 Oakley and Marguerite Richey visited New York City so Oakley, a graduate and instructor at the Herron School of Art, could attend lectures and paint. His wife, Marguerite, kept a diary chronicling their six-month experience in the city. Sara Sanderson, a free-lance writer, acquired the diary from a thrift store in the mid-1980s and used the diary to form the basis for an article published in Arts Indiana in 1988 (call number: NX1 .A11 I53).
