I'm going to need to also get you a letter from Harold Spencer.  When I spoke to him he indicated that Florence Griswold owned his text and he was amenable to publication.  ... However, it states clearly in this catalogue that the essay is published with permission of the copyright holder, Harold Spencer.  He does not use email, so I'll need to get a letter from him.  It will take some time, so this package won't be in this week.

A special TFAO emphasis is building an archive of material, authored by scholars and other informed individuals, beneficial for the study of art history in the United States. As a public service, without charge to readers, TFAO annually publishes a number of scholarly texts relating to American representational art in its publication Resource Library.

American Art Review, ISSN 0092-1327, is published on paper and noted for its scholarly content by both senior authors and younger scholars. Tel 913.451.8801. The time period focus of American Art Review is from the Colonial era through 1970. The first issue of Volume 1 of the magazine was published in September, 1973. Publication was suspended with Volume 4 in November, 1978. Publication resumed with Volume V in the Summer of 1992 and continues to the present. In the 19th century there was a journal with a similar title, The American Art Review: A Journal Devoted to The Practice, Theory, History and Archaeology of Art edited by S.R. Koehler.

From time to time, TFAO contacts copyright owners of American Art Review articles and requests permission to reprint catalogue essays from which the articles were derived. -- without illustrations -- in Resource Library. As an alternate, TFAO may obtain permission to reprint the American Art Review articles without illustrations.

Currently TFAO volunteers and contractors are reviewing articles published in American Art Review from 1992 through 1998 in alphabetical order by author's last name.
