The collection includes two general files on folk art and folk artists, alphabetical artist files of photographs and slides, as well as clippings, printed matter, and correspondence. These files are primarily of artists featured in Davies’ personal collection. Many of the files have only a small amount of material in them– some with just a single biographical sheet. Exceptions to this are the folders of Vestie Davis, Harry Lieberman, Alexander Maldonado, and Jack Savitsky, all of which have a significant amount of material. Additionally, the Harry Lieberman, Alexander Maldonado, and Jack Savitsky files all have a significant amount of correspondence between Davies and either the artist or the artist’s representatives (i.e. family or gallery owners). The Jack Savitsky file also has a small drawing on a note card done by the artist for Davies. In the folder titled “Exhibitions, Weathervanes, Whirligigs, and Trade Signs,” there are 35mm slides of various artworks around mostly the northeast, including images of weathervanes and whirligigs on barns, churches, and other buildings in New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, and New York. Other places include Kentucky and California.
