I have found several databases that have listings of Hazel
Guggenheim's 5 paintings that were auctioned off. I cannot provide the
information itself as the subscription fees are more then the value of
the quesiton. Would links to these services be acceptable as an

Other then that, information about the artist, her work, and her life
would appear to be super-mega-extremely scarce. Some pages that
provide information about her father Banjamin, don't even mention the
existence of Hazel.

I didn't mean above to deride the value of the question. Even if the
question had been worth much more, I don't think I could have posted
the actual results without violating the user agreements had I signed
up. I realized later I didn't word that well. At any rate, here are
the links I found: has listings for 4 auctions by Hazel Guggenheim MacKinley
and 1 for Hazel Guggenheim McKinley. I believe they both refer to the
same artist. Unfortuneatly this is also a pay site.
In the main window, there is a search box. Type in “hazel Guggenheim”
and click search. You’ll get a screen listing the 2 painters. When you
click on each one, you’ll get a list of the auction records. Clicking
on any record will bring up an example record, and prompt you to
sunscribe. has records of 4 auctions and their prices for Hazel
Guggenheim McKinley. Unfortunately, it is a subscriber-only feature,
so I cannot provide you with the exact information.
(Click on “The Auction Records” also offers auction results by subscription. has no listings for our artist.
Implies that you might be able to get a 1 month free trial of SCIPIO,
another large auction database.

Here is a poem written as a eulogy by her son:
