Arrangement

Arranged chronologically.

Scope and Contents

This series contains photographs of Frederic W. Goudy from 1881 until his final birthday celebrations in March 1947. Most of the materials date from 1938-1947, and appear to have been sent by Goudy in his letters to Denison librarian Dorothy M. Drake. The materials include images of Goudy by Doris U. Jaeger (1919) and Clarence H. White (1923); photographs of the cascade and Goudy's house and workshop at Deepdene, Marlborough, New York, prior to the fire of 29 January 1939; Goudy in his cloth work hat; a 1938 etching of Goudy by Alexander Stern; photographs of a 1938 bust of Goudy by Clair Heller; formal portraits of Goudy in academic regalia; and Goudy and his favorite cat, "Marmlade"; and an original 1941 sketch--and photographs of others--of Goudy by Kate Steinitz. Of special note are the snapshots of Goudy with Dorothy M. Drake, Ernest Jaqua, and Florence Duvall, taken during Goudy's September 1941 visit to Scripps College.
