Henrietta C. Bartlett, born in 1873, was a long-time resident of New Haven. Her father, Charles G. Bartlett, received his M.A. from Yale in 1888, and at least one of her brothers attended Yale as an undergraduate. Bartlett herself was involved with the University as an active donor to the library, with gifts ranging from her extensive library of rare books to her own personal papers. Bartlett gave many lectures at Yale during the 1920's and 1930's on the subjects of bibliography, collecting, and rare books, and taught private pupils for many years, as well. Her work in bibliography centered around the works of William Shakespeare, and include Mr. William Shakespeare, Original and Early Editions of his Quartos and Folios (1923), and Census of Shakespeare's Plays in Quarto, 1594-1709 (1916 and 1939, with Alfred W. Pollard), both printed by the Yale University Press, under the auspices of the Elizabethan Club. She also published a volume of poetry, Verses, 1888-1912, in 1949. She died in 1963.
