In the collection of the Mr. and Mrs. Allan C. Balch Art Research Library are posters and other pieces of ephemera relating to local exhibitions, artists, and organizations; all of this material is arranged in vertical files. The artist and gallery exhibition files include thousands of items of documentation on the artists living and working in Los Angeles and the galleries where they have shown their work. Included are announcements for many of the significant galleries of the early Los Angeles art scene—Ankrum, Asher/Faure, Baum/Silverman, Terry DeLapp, Dwan, Ferus, Dalzell Hatfield, Paul Kantor, Felix Landau, Frank Perls, Esther Robles, Stendahl, and David Stuart, among others.
