Vander Poel (Halsted) Campanian collection
Series VI. Documentation of objects in the Museo archeologico nazionale di Napoli, 1960-1971, undated 5.6 Linear Feet
Improving the documentation of objects from Pompeii in the Museo archeologico nazionale di Napoli was another of Vander Poel's goals. Concerned over the state of the records in the museum, Vander Poel initiated two projects, a reconstruction of the catalog of the museum, which had been lost in the 1960s, and a photographic inventory of the frescoes not on public display. Work on these projects appears to be in preliminary form.
Series VI.A. Catalog of the Museo archeologico nazionale di Napoli, 1960-1971, undated 2.5 Linear Feet
Vander Poel began a reconstruction of the Museo Archeologico catalog because the original volumes, which recorded the acquisition numbers, dates of acquisition, and inventory numbers of objects held by the museum, had been lost. This reconstruction emphasizes the frescoes, but also includes other media, such as marbles, bronzes, vases, terracottas, and inscriptions. For each object, Vander Poel provided basic information and bibliographic references, and in many cases, a photograph.

Series VI.B. Photographic inventory of 1008 frescoes, undated 2.5 Linear Feet
The second element of Vander Poel's Museo archeologico documentation project was to provide photographic documentation of the frescoes not on public display. Vander Poel photographed the frescoes housed in seven storerooms of the museum. These paintings had little or no documentation due to the loss of the catalog. Vander Poel intended to identify the paintings and trace their provenance. The frescoes have been arranged by subject.
