Table of contents What's This?
This collection is mostly correspondence from Beatrice Warde to Evan and Mabel Gill and also contains two photographs of Warde in her home in Epsom, a newspaper clipping about her passing, a program/pamphlet from her memorial, and a page from a magazine after her death.
Beatrice Warde was born in New York on September 20, 1900. An early interest in calligraphy, which she learned at school, led to her learning about typography and letter forms while attending Barnard College and Columbia University. Warde was best known for her work as a typographer as well as authoring the essay "The Crystal Goblet." Warde worked as the marketing manager for the Monotype Corporation from 1929 until her retirement in 1960. She was a typographical scholar who would frequently lecture on the subject in England and the US. Warde was also a devout Roman Catholic. She died September 16, 1969.
