The Guggenheim jury. Same jury as last year. (Fraser, Young, Zigrosser, Watkins, + myself) – The work not of as high caliber as some years.  Only one man’s work gave me real pleasure that of Mitchell Jamieson [https://americanart.si.edu/artist/mitchell-jamieson-2437] one of an autumnal landscape with an old stump that was a beauty –

Out lunch at Billy the Oyster Man nearby (our meeting place at B-way + 19th.)
