Frederick Andrews Walpole artwork and diaries

10 January 2018

In addition to the 805 mostly pencil and ink drawings and watercolors by Frederick Andrews Walpole (1861–1904) held by our Art Department, our Archives has three diaries. A finding aid for the Walpole diaries has been added to the Web site. The collection has been digitized and is available as PDFs for downloading. The Walpole artworks are in the public domain and can be viewed and downloaded from the Catalogue of the Botanical Art Collection at the Hunt Institute: Digital Public Domain Images database.
