About the Finding Aid: This finding aid was prepared by Sophia Dahab in Microsoft Word at the Grolier Club, November 2016.

 

Provenance: Items in this collection were created by members or staff of the Grolier Club in the course of regular Club house activities. This collection was originally part of RG7: Grolier Club Bibliophile Trips but was separated at the suggestion of the Archivist.

Biographical/Historical Note: Following the success of the Grolier Club’s bibliophile tours – and in thanks for their hosts – the Club sponsored a number of reciprocal visits for out of town guests.  The largest of these, Gala Book Week in 1964, included a roster of both domestic and international visitors and a wide program of events spanning a full week and featuring receptions, exhibitions and tours of local museums and libraries.

 

Scope and Content Note: Correspondence, planning information, program materials, publications and brochures.
