JOHN H. RHOADES 5S BROAD STREET NEW YORK, N. Y. IOOO-4 June 25, 1973 Mr, William I. Homer College of Arts & Science Department of Art History University of Delaware 342 Smith Hall Newark, Delaware 19711 Dear Mr. Homer: In connection with your interest in material on Katharine N. Rhoades, I forgot to mention a lifelong friendship with Mr. & Mrs. Albert Spalding. Miss Rhoades had been at school with Mrs. Spalding at the Brearley, I believe where they also had a schoolmate Malvina Hoffman who was a member also of 291. Friday in the Times an article appeared on the first page of the second section entitled, 'They Don't Go For Baroque In Great Barrington'. I am enclosing a Xerox copy of the article as a matter of possible interest. My aunt Katharine N. Rhoades sold the estate which had been bequeathed to her by Charles Freer to Mr. & Mrs. Albert Spalding in the early thirties. The Spaldings lived there and after Mr. Spalding's death Mrs. Spalding lived there and at her death it was bequeathed to the Berkshire Museum. The Berkshire Museum has a collection of oriental art which carries the name of the donors, the Spaldings. In addition, there is a Japanese screen from the estate of Katharine N. Rhoades. I thought this might be of interest. Sincerely, John H. Rhoades Rnc.
