Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Paul Landacre Archive contains the artist's original artwork, prints, and blocks, personal papers, business archive, and published versions of his work, as well as the personal papers of his wife, Margaret McCreery Landacre. This collection also includes realia and memorabilia, such as print-making tools, school diplomas, and awards.
Paul Hambleton Landacre was born in Columbus, OH, on 9 July 1893. He attended Ohio State University where he was a track and field athlete with dreams of participating in the Olympics. During his sophomore year, he contracted a streptococcus infection that caused permanent damage to his right leg and meant the end of his running career. After a long convalescence, he left the midwest for San Diego, where his father and stepmother had settled, and found work as a commercial illustrator at an advertising firm where he met his future wife, copywriter Margaret McCreery. Margaret Gertrude McCreery had been born in Missouri in 1891, but by the early 1910s had also relocated to San Diego with her parents and siblings.
