Additional Details

The Harmon Foundation, founded in 1922 by William Elmer Harmon, a mid-western financier, provided philanthropic and educational support for many African-American artists from the zenith of the Harlem Renaissance to the early 1930s. The catalogues for the exhibits mounted by the Foundation have become quite scarce.
