Abstract:

Correspondence, notices, and some reports of librarians Richard Hoe Lawrence, Henry Watson Kent (1900-1905), Ruth Shepard Granniss (1905-1944), George Leslie McKay (1944-1958), Alexander Davidson (1958-1960), J. Terry Bender (1961-1964), Gabriel Austin (1964-1969), and Harvey Simmonds (1969-1970). In addition to correspondence, there are orders and invoices relating to books and bookbinding ordered for the Club for the period. Records for some groups of years appear incomplete. Between 1906 and 1916, Ruth Granniss sent out handwritten correspondence using a carbon-like paper to obtain copies; some of these are now difficult to read. The Granniss files of correspondents' letters include a few of her holograph originals.

Individual correspondents include but are not limited to correspondence to and from: Elmer Adler, Frank Altschul, C.R. Ashbee, Samuel Putnam Avery, Henrietta Bartlett, Melbert B. Cary, George Watson Cole, Edith Diehl, Marian Dodd (Womens' University Club), Porter Garnett (Laboratory Press), Walter Gilliss, W.W. Greg, Louis Haber, Byrne Hackett, Sherman P. Haight, Lathrop Harper, Philip Hofer, Robert Jaffray, Geoffrey Keynes, Bella Landauer, Flora Livingston, Luther Livingston, Amy Lowell, Leonard L. Mackall, Ronald B. McKerrow, Howard Mansfield, Stanley Morison, Edward A. Parsons, Joseph Pennell, A.W. Pollard, Fanny Ratchford, Carl Purlington Rollins, Walter Kilburn Root, William Edwin Rudge, Margaret B. Stillwell, Edward L. Stone, Daniel Berkeley Updike, Beatrice Warde, Frederic Warde, and Lawrence C. Wroth. Book dealers and binders include but are not limited to: B.F. Stevens & Brown, G.E. Stechert & Co., Charles P. Lauriat, Atelier Bindery, French Binders (Doubleday & Co.), MacDonald James, MacDonald & Maier, and the Stikeman firm.

The Alexander Davidson records contain material about the Morgan Gunst Fund for the Grolier Club and the Bender records include reports by Carolyn Horton on the physical rehabilitation of the Grolier Library during the years 1960-1962. Also: guestbooks for the period 1930-1955; entries often indicate purpose of users' research.
