Theodore Francis Green papers

Scope & content

The papers document the activities of the RISD Endowment Committee of 1902, on which Theodore Francis Green served as Chair. Appointed in November 1901, the committee raised over $50,000 by June 1, 1902 to match a $50,000 donation by Stephen O., Manton B., and Jesse H. Metcalf and their sister Eliza G. Radeke. The records include correspondence with donors, both potential and actual; the Committee report; meeting correspondence; newspaper clippings and notices sent to the local newspapers; lists of potential donors; subscription appeals; and subscription lists with donation amounts. The series includes four letters dated 1910 regarding School matters not related to the Endowment Committee: two from Director Huger Elliott, and one each from Trustees Eliza G. Radeke and Howard M. Rice.
