Biographical/Historical Note

Mary Lee Crovatt (1885-1973) was born the daughter of an affluent family in Brunswick, Georgia with familial ties to Jekyll Island. Mary left home at an early age to attend a finishing school in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was educated in the classics. In her twenties, she lived in New York and had aspirations to become an actress. It was during this period that she supported herself as an artist’s model and professional whistler, and met Jay Hambidge (1867-1924), an artist, illustrator, and scholar who pioneered the theory of “dynamic symmetry,” a concept that linked the symmetry found in nature to that of art objects. In 1920, Yale University Press sponsored a trip to Greece for research involving dynamic symmetry and on-site measurements of the Parthenon. While Jay was engaged in his work, Mary, who had accompanied him, became intrigued with the village weavers and the process by which sheep wool was spun and woven into everyday garments. Mary was so taken, in fact, that she remained in Greece to perfect her weaving skills, after Jay had returned home to begin a lecture series to defend the theory of dynamic symmetry. After Jay’s sudden death in 1924, Mary eventually moved back to Georgia and became enamored with Rabun County and the American tradition of handweaving. With the financial backing of Eleanor Steele Reece (formerly Mrs. Hall Clovis), an acquaintance from New York, Mary set out to create a place where crafts and agriculture were practiced based on an expanded view of dynamic symmetry. By the mid 1930s, she established herself on an 800 acre tract of land along Betty’s Creek in the Rabun Gap area and recruited local women to spin and weave and men to work the farm. Building on the success of the weaving business, Mary, with support of Eleanor Steele Reece, opened Rabun Gap Studios at 810 Madison Avenue in New York City in 1937. For twenty years the shop promoted handwoven designs and weavings by the Weavers of Rabun. In 1944, the Jay Hambidge Art Foundation was officially incorporated. The institution’s philosophy was “Agriculture and the Handcrafts are the basis of a creative life.” From the late 1940s to the early 1970s, Mary continued to weave and envision new directions for the Foundation. After her death in 1973, Mary Creety Nikas, an interior designer and friend, saw to the continuation of the institution. The Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences exists today as an artist colony that sponsors residency, workshops, and general intellectual and creative exchange, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a rural historic district.


Scope and Content Note

Through personal papers, subject files, and printed material and publications, the collection documents the life of Mary Crovatt Hambidge from her childhood in Brunswick, Georgia to the establishment of the Hambidge Center, formerly the Jay Hambidge Art Foundation, and the efforts of Mary and Jay Hambidge to develop and promote the concept of dynamic symmetry. See the scope and content note of each series for expanded information.


Arrangement

This collection is arranged in three series. Series 1, Personal Papers, is arranged alphabetically according to the record type created by or related to (1) Mary Crovatt Hambidge, (2) Jay Hambidge, and, lastly, (3) other families related to Mary, and chronologically within each subheading. Series 2, Hambidge Center Subject Files, is arranged alphabetically and chronologically. The final series, Printed Material and Publications, is arranged first by type, and then alphabetically and chronologically. Considering the custodial history of the collection, it is unknown the degree to which the papers reflect an arrangement system maintained by the creators or imposed by other institutions. For some material, there was no arrangement. In the absence of a usable order, a scheme was created for Series 1 and 3. Series 2, the subject files, reflects the arrangement of the materials as they were acquisitioned.

Series 1: Personal Papers Mary Crovatt Hambidge, Jay Hambidge, and Crovatt-DuBignon-Grandison-Schlatter, 1806-1973, bulk 1920-1970, undated

Address books, calendars, diaries, letters, postcards, and scrapbooks document Mary Crovatt Hambidge’s activities, interests, work, and relationships. Incoming letters from Jay Hambidge trace the couple’s burgeoning relationship, their travels to Greece, and his developing theory of dynamic symmetry. Letters, incoming and outgoing, estate records, postcards, scrapbooks and family papers of Crovatt-DuBignon-Grandison-Schlatter provide details into Crovatt family genealogy, including family ties to Jekyll Island, and Mary Hambidge’s relationships with family and friends. However they do not document fully Mary’s development from early childhood to adulthood. School work, notebooks, poems, letters, printed material and publications, and writings (including quotes and works by other authors) document Mary’s intellectual development and ideas on a broad range of subjects: art and design; philosophy, religion, and spirituality; modernization, nature, and politics (local and national); and race relations. A variety of materials – computations and measurements, letters, notebooks, published and unpublished manuscripts, and scrapbooks – trace the efforts of Jay Hambidge to develop and promote his theory of dynamic symmetry, and, to a lesser extent, his ties as an artist and illustrator to the arts community. These materials also document the efforts of Mary Hambidge to continue the work begun by Jay Hambidge. Mary Crovatt Hambidge papers are found in boxes 1 through 21, Jay Hambidge papers are found in boxes 22 through 32 and the Crovatt-DuBignon-Grandison-Schlatter papers are found in boxes 33 through 34.

Series 2: Hambidge Center Subject Files, 1921-1994, bulk 1940-1970, undated

The subjects files, comprised of announcements, brochures, business records, clippings, correspondence, financial documents, legal documents, notes, and reports, detail the establishment and operations of and changes to the Hambidge Center and the New York-based retail store, Rabun Studios.

This series also details the institution’s programming and projects, including textile designs created for President Harry S. Truman’s yacht, the U. S. S. Williamsburg; the 1958 exhibit, “Weavers of Rabun,” which appeared at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C.; and fabrics used in a 1963 line of clothing for internationally known fashion designer Laura Willis.
