History notes:

The Harvard Society for Contemporary Art was founded in February 1929 by three undergraduates: Lincoln Kirstein, Edward Warburg, and John Walker, with the aid of the Fogg Museum. The purpose of the Society was to hold exhibitions of "frankly debatable" contemporary art in various media. The Society presented some of the first exhibitions of contemporary art in the United States, including the first exhibition of art of the Bauhaus while that school was still active in Germany. The Society disbanded in 1936.
