Lewis Museum of Mining and Labor and others that are now posted here and on his web site.

I have found two more museum collections that include works by Alton Tobey. The Smithsonian Institute Research Information System (SIRIS) confirms the following: (1) The National Portrait Gallery Collection possesses Tobey's portrait of Thornton W. Burgess (pencil on board). (2) The Museum of the City of New York owns Tobey's portrait of Al Smith (oil on board).
