This series is divided into two sub-series. The first includes loose clippings from newspapers and magazines, and the second consists of five clippings booklets.

Subseries 1: Loose Clippings, 1916 - 1960s and undated


1 box, 6 folders
Arrangement: chronological
This series contains the loose clippings from newspapers and magazines found in the collection. They include photographs, advertisements and announcements of performances in which Amata Grassi participated; related to other performers for whom she had an interest in, such as Anna Pavlova or Chester Hale; and a few articles related to poodles, the object of Amata Grassi's career during the later part of her life. This series also includes a small number of entire issues of magazines found in the collection.

Subseries 2: Clippings Booklets, 1917 - 1928 and undated


1 box, 5 folders
Arrangement: chronological
This series contains four booklets containing performance programs, and magazine and newspaper clippings, documenting Amata Grassi's career, and one with photographs of other performers. All are put together informally, most likely by Amata Grassi herself, although with very little personal input other than dating and underlining the passages relevant to herself. The majority of the clippings related to her career found in Series III are also present here.
