Biographical Note

Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919) was a wealthy Pittsburgh industrialist who made much of his fortune in the coke and steel industries. He founded H.C. Frick Coke Co., and formed a business partnership with Andrew Carnegie in 1882. He became chairman of Carnegie Bros. & Co. (later Carnegie Steel Co.) in 1889, and served in that capacity until his resignation from the company in 1899. Following his break with Carnegie, Frick remained engaged in business until the end of his life, serving on the boards of various banking, railroad, and insurance concerns. Frick was also active as a philanthropist, contributing to educational and cultural institutions, hospitals, churches, and civic organizations.

Frick married Adelaide Howard Childs in 1881, and the couple established a residence, which they called Clayton, in Pittsburgh. They had four children: Childs Frick (1883-1965), Martha Howard Frick (1885-1891), Helen Clay Frick (1888-1984), and Henry Clay Frick, Jr. (born 1892, died in infancy). In addition to their home in Pittsburgh, the Fricks also maintained a summer home called Eagle Rock in Prides Crossing, Mass., and a Beaux Arts mansion at One East 70th Street in New York, designed by Thomas Hastings. A prominent art collector, Frick began acquiring paintings around the time of his marriage, and continued to build his collection until his death in 1919. The bulk of his collection, consisting of paintings by old masters such as Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough, Holbein, and Turner, along with furnishings and decorative objects, was housed in his New York residence, which he bequeathed as a museum upon his death. The Frick Collection opened to the public in 1935.

Of the four children born to Henry Clay Frick and his wife, only Childs and Helen Clay survived to adulthood. Childs Frick graduated from Princeton University in 1905 and went on to become a noted paleontologist. Over the years, he led or sponsored a number of scientific expeditions around the world and donated specimens to both the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh and the American Museum of Natural History in New York. In 1913, he married Frances Shoemaker Dixon of Baltimore, and they had four children: Adelaide Frick Blanchard (1915-1956), Frances Frick Burden (1916-1971), Martha Frick Symington (1917-1996), and Henry Clay Frick II (1919-2007). The family lived at Clayton, an estate located in Roslyn, N.Y., which was a gift to Childs and his wife from Henry Clay Frick. Childs Frick died at Clayton in 1965.

Helen Clay Frick neither married nor had any children. After her father's death, she established the Frick Art Reference Library in New York as a resource for the study of art and art history. She also founded the Henry Clay Frick Fine Arts Department at the University of Pittsburgh, and was active in politics, humanitarian causes, and land conservation. She owned a large estate, called Westmoreland Farm, in Bedford, N.Y., in addition to two homes she inherited from her parents. Helen Clay Frick died at the Frick family home in Pittsburgh in 1984.

Scope and Content Note

The Frick Family Photographs collection consists of images dating from circa 1850s through the 1980s. Items range from formal studio portraits to snapshots, published images, and souvenir photographs, and include a variety of photographic formats and processes (e.g. cartes de visites, tintypes, cased images, albumen prints, cyanotypes, etc.) These images document the Frick family's social circle, hobbies, modes of dress and travel, residences, employees, and pets. Photographers of note include B.L.H. Dabbs, Ernest Walter Histed, Henry Havelock Pierce, and F. Roseti, among many others. Items are grouped into the following six series:

Series I: People, circa 1850s-1989 and undated, chiefly contains images of Frick family members, friends, and other acquaintances. The bulk of these images depict Henry Clay Frick and his wife Adelaide H.C. Frick, along with their children, Childs Frick, Helen Clay Frick, Martha Howard Frick, and Henry Clay Frick Jr. Extended family members represented in this series include Mr. and Mrs. Frick's parents, siblings, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, as well as nieces, nephews, and cousins. Members of the Childs, Overholt, Blanchard, Burden, and Symington families are among the extended family members documented here. This series also includes a wide range of friends and acquaintances of the Frick family, such as P.C. Knox and George Harvey, as well as members of the Carnegie, Frew, and Holmes families. This series occasionally includes historically prominent people (e.g. Mark Twain, or Queen Wilhelmina of The Netherlands), who are not known to have any acquaintance with the family. Items in this series are arranged alphabetically by the subject's name, with unidentified images filed at the end.

Series II: Places, circa 1867-1989 and undated, contains images of Frick family residences and of places associated with the family, including locations in and around Pittsburgh, and homes belonging to friends and extended family. This series also documents travel both within the United States and abroad, and includes snapshots taken by family members, as well as published and souvenir photographs. Residences of the Frick family documented in this series include Clayton in Pittsburgh, Pa., Eagle Rock in Prides Crossing, Mass., and One East 70th Street in New York, N.Y. This series does not contain any images of the Vanderbilt house at 640 Fifth Avenue in New York, which the Fricks leased from 1905 until 1914. Items in this series are grouped first by foreign and domestic locations. Foreign locations are arranged alphabetically by country and then city; domestic locations are arranged alphabetically by state and then city.

Series III: Art Objects, 1932-circa 1970s and undated, contains images of paintings, sculpture, clocks, enamels, furniture, porcelains, and rugs. The bulk of the photographs in this series depict objects in The Frick Collection; some of the remaining images are of objects at the Frick Art & Historical Center, while still others are in unidentified collections. Items in this series are grouped into Subseries I: Works in The Frick Collection and Subseries II: Other Works. Within each subseries, photographs are arranged first by genre then by artist. Items such as furniture, where the artist or maker may not be known, are organized by type (e.g. sofas, tables, etc.)

Series IV: Rolls of Film, 1903-1986 and undated, are groups of photographs, presumably from a single roll of film, that variously depict people and places, but do not fit squarely within Series I: People or Series II: Places above. Many of these include images taken at the Frick family's country estate (Eagle Rock) in Prides Crossing, Mass., at Helen Clay Frick's estate (Westmoreland Farm) in Bedford, N.Y., or on various trips to Europe. Folder titles within this series are often taken from notes on the envelopes in which the photographs were housed. Items in this series are arranged chronologically.

Series V: Miscellaneous, circa 1900-1969 and undated, chiefly includes images of animals, automobiles, flowers, and a large group of stereoscopic views of golf swings published by the Bay State Publishing Co. Animals depicted in this series largely consist of horses and dogs owned by the Frick family over the years, while images of automobiles depict cars owned by Henry Clay Frick in the early 1900s. Items in this series are grouped alphabetically by subject.

Series VI: Negatives, dating from the early 1900s through the 1980s, depict people, places, art objects, and miscellaneous subjects much as the photographic prints in Series I through V do above. For preservation purposes, however, all negatives have been physically removed from this collection and placed in cold storage. Digital surrogates are available for these items; please see the archivist or email archives@frick.org for more details.

Series VII: Cased Images, circa 1868-1920, contains images in frames, cases, or other enclosures that require them to be housed separately. Items in this series include portraits of Adelaide H.C. Frick, Helen Clay Frick, and Frances Frick Burden by Alyn Williams, founder of the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors, and Gravers; two portraits of Henry Clay Frick as a young man; and gold lacquer reprints by H. Mizuno of an 1894 portrait of Frick.

Series II: Places
 

Series II: Places, circa 1867-1989 and undated, contains images of Frick family residences and of places associated with the family, including locations in and around Pittsburgh, and homes belonging to friends and extended family. This series also documents travel both within the United States and abroad, and includes snapshots taken by family members, as well as published and souvenir photographs. Residences of the Frick family documented in this series include Clayton in Pittsburgh, Pa., Eagle Rock in Prides Crossing, Mass., and One East 70th Street in New York, N.Y. This series does not contain any images of the Vanderbilt house at 640 Fifth Avenue in New York, which the Fricks leased from 1905 until 1914.

Items in this series are grouped first by foreign and domestic locations. Foreign locations are arranged alphabetically by country and then city; domestic locations are arranged alphabetically by state and then city.

Series IV: Rolls of Film
 

Series IV: Rolls of Film, 1903-1986 and undated, are groups of photographs, presumably from a single roll of film, that variously depict people and places, but do not fit squarely within Series I: People or Series II: Places above. Many of these include images taken at the Frick family's country estate (Eagle Rock) in Prides Crossing, Mass., at Helen Clay Frick's estate (Westmoreland Farm) in Bedford, N.Y., or on various trips to Europe. Folder titles within this series are often taken from notes on the envelopes in which the photographs were housed.
