John T. Winterich, bibiophile, editor and writer, was born in Middletown, Conn. and received a B.A. from Brown University. While serving in World War I he became one of the first members of the editorial staff of Stars and Stripes, the newspaper for servicemen. At this time he met Abian A. ("Wally") Wallgren, who provided cartoons for all 71 issues of the World War I edition of Stars and Stripes (1918-1919). Together, Wallgren and Winterich publshed The A.E.F.[American Expeditionary Force] in Cartoon (1933). In 1919 Winterich succeeded Harold Ross as editor of the American Legion Magazine, a post he held until 1938. During the 1930s he became active in bibliophile activities as editor of the Colophon and as a member of the Grolier Club. After service in World War II as an officer assigned to the Pentagon to deal with censorship issues, Winterich became a contributing editor to The Saturday Review of Literature in 1946; he continued to write for the SRL until his death in 1970. Winterich provided many introductions to special and limited editions. Among his own books are A primer of book collecting (1935) and The Grolier Club: an informal history (1967).
