Dan Paul received the B.A. from Harvard College in 1946. Paul was a well-known First Amendment and environmental lawyer in Florida. Some of his clients include the Miami Herald Publishing Company, New York Times Company, National Broadcasting Company, and Wall Street Journal. In the 1960s, he represented the National Audubon Society to prevent construction of a jetport in the Everglades. He died at his home in Miami, Florida, on January 24, 2010 at the age of 85.

Scope and Content:

Two notebooks contain lecture notes from a Harvard University art class, Fine Arts 1D, which covered the history of Architecture, Sculpture, and Painting from "the fall of the Roman Empire to the present day" and was taken by Paul in 1943-1944. Some supplementary documents are included with the notebooks: exam question booklets, "blue books" containing exam essays, handouts, index cards, torn pages from books, advertisement cards, and an exterior picture of the Church of the Madeleine, Paris, France. Some of the advertising cards were used by Paul as ink blotters. Items found loose in the notebooks were placed in folders based on paper size and subject; and foldered according to the notebook from which they came.
