Introduction to the Collection

A collection of correspondence, articles, clippings, research materials, books and academic papers surrounding the work of Mexican muralist, Jose Clemente Orozco (1883-1949). Much of the material relates to the frescoes at Dartmouth College, their commissioning, painting and ongoing celebration and research. Some of the collection was gathered by Churchill Lathrop, Dartmouth professor of Art from 1928 until his retirement in 1969, who was involved in bringing the painter to Dartmouth between 1932 and 1934 as a painter and teacher, and later was engaged in research for a biography of Orozco. The collection also includes audio recordings of lectures, events, and tour tapes relating to the murals at Dartmouth.

Introduction

Between 1927 and 1934, he worked in the United States and completed murals at Pomona College, the New School in New York City, and Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. Orozco died September 7, 1949.
