Historical/Biographical Note
The Hroswitha Club of women book collectors was founded in New York City in 1944 and took its name from a 10th century female German poet (Hrotsvitha, ca. 935-ca. 975). Meetings were scheduled three to four times a year during the winter months and held at the homes of members as well as at major libraries and private collections, mainly in the northeast. In 1948, the Club founded its Sarah Gildersleeve Fife Memorial Library (named after one of the Hroswitha Club’s founders) consisting of books pertaining to Hroswitha, books by members and books of general interest.

In 1965 the club issued its major publication, Hroswitha of Gandersheim: Her Life, Times and Works. In 1990, the Hroswitha Club officially ‘simplified’ its activities in order to continue. The 200th meeting was held in 1994.

Additional Notes on the Hroswitha Club

The Hroswitha Club of women book collectors was founded in New York City in 1944 by Mrs. Robert Herndon Fife (Sarah Gildersleeve Fife) to provide an opportunity for female bibliofiles to exchange ideas and knowledge about books and collecting (much after the style of the Grolier Club). She asked the following collectors and scholars to meet with her: Mrs. Roy Arthur Hunt, Mrs. Allan Marquand, Miss Belle da Costa Greene, Miss Henrietta C. Bartlett, Miss Ruth Grannis, and Mrs. Sherman Post Haight (Anne Lyon Haight). As a result they established the Hroswitha Club, named after the 10th century German abbess who was a playwright, scholar and poet (Hrotsvitha, i.e. Hroswitha, ca. 935-ca. 975). The official inauguration took place at a meeting at the Cosmopolitan Club on November 16, 1944. Elected members included authors, bibliographers, librarian curators and private collectors and their collecting interests were quite diverse. One member had a collection on boxiana, another on military costumes, another on Walt Whitman, and there were members who shared similar collecting interests that included children’s literature, botany and books to do with printing. Meetings were scheduled three to four times a year during the winter months and held at the homes of members as well as at major libraries and private collections, mainly in the northeast.

The important activity of visiting collections, public and private, was always maintained by the organization and members were often accorded the courtesy of opening any case for closer examination of the exhibited items. During a meeting at the Morgan Library, curator (and fellow Hrowsithian) Belle da Costa Greene informed the group that they had the full freedom to enter the vaults and examine the treasures at will. While many institutions were revisited, the same viewing experience was never repeated. However, it was noted in the Club’s minutes that its members must have seen at least three copies of Dame Juliana Berner’s Book of Hunting, Hawking and Heraldry published in 1496 over the course of the Club’s first twenty years.

In 1948, the Hroswitha Club decided to form a library consisting of books pertaining to Hroswitha, books by members and books of general interest. Upon the death of Mrs. Fife in 1949, the library was named in her honor and called the Sarah Gildersleeve Fife Memorial Library. A shelf was dedicated to the Hroswitha Club’s use at the Grolier Club to serve as the library’s first location. As the library increased, the collection had to be moved to various locations since the Hroswitha Club had no formal address.

In 1957, The New Yorker magazine profiled the organization in an article that appeared in their August 10th issue. It referred to Hroswitha as “the only Dark Ages celebrity with a local fan club”. The article drew international attention as well as a phone call from the “$64,000 question” for further details. The Club’s president politely declined the inquiry from the television show.

At the Club’s fiftieth meeting (January 12, 1956), the suggestion of compiling a bibliography on Hroswitha was discussed and then agreed to. Nine years later, in 1965 the club issued its major publication, Hroswitha of Gandersheim: Her Life, Times and Works to honor the 10th century German abbess. In 1990, the Hroswitha Club officially ‘simplified’ its activities by holding fewer meetings each year, replacing the organization’s minutes with a synopsis and eliminating dues. The club’s 200th meeting was held in 1994.

Since these records are not entirely complete, there is no documentation about the dissolution of the Hroswitha Club. At one point, the Grolier Club invited members of the Hroswitha Club to join their membership and many accepted the invitation. This has allowed for the continuation of the ‘Hroswitha Club mission’ of providing a gathering place where bibliophiles can exchange ideas
