SERIES IV. Financial and Legal Papers: 1908-1981 (1 record box; 1 linear foot) primarily contains bank records, contracts, estate documents, income tax forms, and insurance policies of the artist and his wife. The series is arranged alphabetically by document type and then chronologically within each file. Any material dating later than Christy’s death in 1952 was retained only if it pertained to his life or work.
The contracts of this series will be of greatest value to researchers, outlining the details for several of Christy’s larger commissions. Estate papers of both Christy and Robert F. Conneen should be consulted when locations of Christy works after his death in 1952 are in question.
