Subseries 1.4
Administrative and financial records, 1940-1997
Boxes 32-34, 42

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of the administrative and financial records of the Cummington Press from1940 to 1997. Records include annual reports, accounting and banking records, financial correspondence, invoices, sales records, and tax records. Of particular note are the early accounting records and reports of the Cummington Press after it became part of the Cummington School of the Arts in late 1939. The subseries also includes records from the subsequent period when the Press was no longer associated with the School, starting in 1954 when Duncan and Paul Wightman Williams re-opened the Press in Rowe, Massachusetts. Also of note are the sales record books that Duncan maintained while he continued to print under the Cummington Press imprint throughout the 1960s and 1970s, in which he recorded the bookstores and individuals who purchased each of the titles.
