Abstract:

Collection consists of correspondence, notes, receipts, orders, menus, and other documents related to daily operations of the Club. These records document the tenure of Grolier Club Curators beginning with Hector Alliot and ending with George McKay. Note that, given the overlap of the Curator and Librarian roles, a significant amount of related material not present here is located in the Records of the Librarian/Executive Director series, including: correspondence of George McKay post-1944; Gabriel Austin’s correspondence as Curator; and all records of Curators from 2000-2004.

The files of curator Joseph Morton include his record book of the food and drink (with costs) served at all Grolier Club functions between 1901 and 1911. The William Billings material includes a file of autograph letters signed from artist and Club member Joseph Pennell. Among George McKay's correspondents were: Frederick B. Adams, Edwin Bechtel, Douglas McMurtrie, Frederick Pottle, and Spencer Van B. Nichols, as well as such organizations as the American Institute of Graphic Arts and the Bibliographical Society of America. Among the files relating to dinners given at the Club is material documenting those for Howard Mansfield (1928) and Paul A. Bennett (1953). Also: a small amount of material relating to the Hroswitha Club.
