Frederic Dorr Steele

All of the Frederic Dorr Steele images that were part of our internal grant/scanning program have now been uploaded to the U Media Archive. Along with many of the Sherlockian drawings are other Steele pieces not widely viewed before including Christmas and dinner cards, caricatures, self-portraits, and landscapes/seascapes from Monhegan Island.

Additional information on Steele may be found in the excellent exhibit catalogs from the Holmes Collections: The Other Master -- Frederic Dorr Steele and The Frederic Dorr Steele Memorial Collection, both prepared by our local expert on Steele, Andrew Malec.
