    The Seven Arts was a literary journal which flourished briefly in 1916-1917. It was edited by James Oppenheim, Waldo Frank, and Van Wyck Brooks. The magazine came into being in the hopes of publishing the best work of the young and brightest writers and critics. The founders hoped the magazine would become the nucleus of a greater national consciousness but differences within the organization of the magazine became too great to overcome and it folded.

  • Scope and Contents

    One folder with a handwritten letter, dated 31 August 1917, a plea for money for the magazine, and an obituary of James Oppenheim, dated August 5, 1932.
