After he settled his young family into the Clark mansion in early 1912, W.A. printed up cards that allowed New Yorkers to visit the home and to tour his five art galleries.

He left most of his art to the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., where Huguette and her mother and half-sisters paid for a wing to hold it.
