This collection consists of artist files and exhibition research notes compiled by Alfred C. Harrison, Jr., owner and President
of the North Point Gallery from 1985-2021. The Gallery specialized in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century American and
European art, with an emphasis on early California art.
The North Point Gallery, founded by UC Davis Professor Joseph A. Baird, Jr. in 1972, was originally located at 872 North Point
Street in San Francisco. In 1985, following Dr. Baird's retirement, art historian and author Alfred C. Harrison, Jr. assumed
ownership. First relocated to 407 Jackson Street in San Francisco, the Gallery later moved to its final address at 2247 Fifth
Street in Berkeley. The archival collection was presented by Mr. Harrison to the Crocker Art Museum in February 2021 and
the North Point Gallery closed in March 2021, partly as a result of challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Approximately 14 linear feet (four 4-drawer file cabinets; one 2-drawer file cabinet; twenty 3-ring binders)
