McKenzie, R. Tait (MS 508)

Finding Aid | Digital images and documents

Robert Tait McKenzie (1867-1938)—physician, educator, and sculptor—was a childhood friend of James Naismith and a longtime colleague of both Naismith and Luther Halsey Gulick. This collection focuses chiefly on McKenzie’s artwork and professional life, and it contains manuscripts (by Hussey, Leys, and Wolffe) and articles about McKenzie, exhibition catalogs, and images of his sculptures. In addition to this, the collection contains a letter from McKenzie to Dr. James Huff McCurdy and a manuscript by McKenzie about his childhood friend and longtime colleague James Naismith entitled “Reminiscences of James Naismith.” The numerous images in the collection include photographs of McKenzie himself, as well as images of his artwork.
