Bennett, Paul, 1897-1966

Hide Profile

After his retirement from the Merganthaler Linotype Corporation, Paul Bennett was retained by the Grolier Club (a New York bibliophile society) to gather information about typographer and book designer Frederic Warde (1894-1939) for a bibliography, biography, and exhibition. Bennett interviewed a number of people who had known Warde and obtained photocopies of major collections of Warde and Warde-related letters in the Huntington Library, the Newberry Library, and the Library of Congress, as well as items from Helmut Ripperger, the Chiswick Book Shop, and the Pierpont Morgan Library. Additionally, he examined the collection of Sherman P. and Anne Lyon Haight, who had been close personal friends of Warde, and the files of the Limited Editions Club, where Warde had served as typographic advisor and designer in the 1930s.
