An unspecified query regarding possible alterations to the portrait of Sir John Cowans in February 1918 led to Dodd refusing to change the picture, even if it meant the termination of his appointment. On 24 Feb a further letter develops this idea into a request to be released from his contract, to which Masterman concurred, and his appointment was terminated on 31 March 1918.
However, by May, Dodd was writing proposing himself for a publication on the Royal Air Force. Although this project came to nothing, he was subsequently appointed to work for the Naval Section (from 6 July, backdated to 6 June) on a series of drawings of and on board vessels, including submarines. A number of these works were included in the Museum's 'Sea Power' exhibition at the Grosvenor Gallery.
The file includes terms and conditions between the Museum and Country Life Magazine regarding the publication of the 'Admirals of the Fleet' (39-42).
There is some discussion over rights to the works made under the Wellington House Agreement and whether the British Museum or the National Portrait Gallery should be given any works.
There is also some correspondence relating to 'Interrogation' (IWM:ART 2234), including brief notes on the content of the picture (177).
In 1920 Dodd was invited by Lady Norman of the Women's Work Section, to paint a picture of the Women's Hospital at Endell Street. (IWM:ART 4084).
Dodd also describes his struggles with a portrait of Admiral Bradford (IWM:ART 4038).
The file includes correspondence relating to various loans of Dodd's work, particularly several loans to Manchester City Art Gallery.
The file ends with a presscutting from 'What's On in London', May 1929, including an article 'Art at the Imperial War Museum', featuring a reproduction of 'Interrogation'.
