Series contains materials relating to Bloch's work with the Cooper Union Museum, 1953-1959, the Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts, 1957-1984, the Tamarind Lithography Workshop, 1960-1989, the Archives of American Art, 1958-1987, the American Art Council of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 1971-1986, and the Virginia Steele Scott Foundation, 1975-1991.
5 linear ft. of correspondence, notes, printed material and photographs document 2 exhibits Bloch worked on at the Cooper Union: "Prince Regents Style," and "American drawings."
Correspondence in the Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts files includes a detailed summary of Bloch's work at this collection at UCLA. Other correspondence, notes, photographs and annotated dealers' catalogs document his acquisitions, and his exhibits, including "The Special Artists of the American Wars,"(1959) and "Word & Images," an exhibit of United Ltd. Art Editions prints, 1978.
Much of the correspondence in the Tamarind files is with June Wayne, founder of Tamarind, and concerns the work and finances of the workshop, the fellows and artisans in residence there, and the definition of an "original print." Samples of Tamarind press work, photographs, and manuscripts by Wayne are included.
The two files of Archives of American Art material include correspondence and reports regarding advisory committees, donors, and the West Coast Center. Bloch was a member of the American Art Council, a support group of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Less than .5 linear ft. contain correspondence, which includes letters with Michael Quick, curator of American Art, and Nancy Moure, assistant curator, 1971-1982, minutes of meetings, 1971-1981, by-laws, newsletters and press releases, 1973-1986.
The files regarding the Virginia Steele Scott Foundation comprise 4.5 linear ft. and provide a detailed history of the development of this gallery and its collection, as well as Bloch's involvement as advisor and trustee. Papers include articles of incorporation, by-laws, and Board minutes, in-house reports, inventories and photographs of art works, and correspondence. These files document the establishment of the VSS Foundation, the assessment and deaccessioning of the original art collection, primarily by Bloch, the collection development for the VSS Gallery, including offers from dealers, and the relationship between the VSS Gallery, the Archives of American Art, and the Huntington Library and Gallery. Much of the correspondence is from dealers (regarding offers) and between Bloch and Robert Wark (regarding Bloch's role at the Huntington). One file documents the search for a curator of American art and includes correspondence and curriculum vitae from candidates. Three files document Bloch's exhibit at the Huntington in 1989, "Faces & Figures in American Drawings."
