Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection includes printed ephemera created primarily by the Battledore Press, run by Mary and Andrew Horn. Items are mainly paper examples of printing, with a few pieces on wood. Many of the pieces of ephemera relate to the UCLA libraries.
The Battledore Press was the personal press of Mary and Andrew (Andy) Horn. Mary and Andrew printed their first piece on September 8, 1961 (see box 6, folder 3 for the handwritten note about this item). Andrew oversaw the creation of the library school at UCLA in 1959/1960 in addition to being a professor and dean of the school; he also supervised the Horn Press to allow library students the opportunity to print. He was a friend and colleague of Lawrence Clark Powell, the well known University Librarian of UCLA. Further biographical information may be found in the 1986 "University of California: In Memoriam" publication.
