Collection Details


Collection Name: Paulette Greene Paper Collection
Repository Name: University of Delaware. Library. Special Collections Department [Repository Details]
Repository Location: Newark, Delaware, United States

Description: The Paulette Greene Paper Collection includes handmade, watermarked, and decorated paper samples, as well as related correspondence and reference material. While the earliest watermarked sheet dates to 1669, the bulk of the collection is from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The strength of the collection lies in its samples, particularly the decorated papers, which include marbled and printed endpapers as well as individually crafted pieces by contemporary artists. The marbling work of Mariana Roach and Claire Van Vliet are especially noteworthy. Another significant element of the collection is the material relating to Douglass Howell, especially the collector's personal recollection of her 1962 visit with the papermaker at his studio in Westbury, Long Island. Explanatory materials included in the collection are often sketchy, but offer a starting point for further research.
