This huge, very generous collection of ephemera provides an intimate, lifetime, comprehensive look at the art and life of the artist from the Roaring Twenties through the Hippie Era until his death in 1984. [There is a small grouping of 50 or so letters relating to Simpson's father and family dating as early as 1880s.] On another level this archive is sure to please collectors and historians of the early 20th century art in America given the breadth of Simpson's associations with many, many important American and International artists and personalities of his day including Max Mager, John del Russi, Victor Boetsch, Spruill, Westerman, Muse, and Renee Andre.

Simpson traveled and painted in Europe in 1923 and 1924. He lived and worked in Paris, France, Italy, and Oxford, England. He began exhibiting his art around 1920 and shortly thereafter became a member of the Chicago Society of Etchers and the Society of Independent Artists.
