BIOGRAPHICAL STATEMENT

 

John Grossman was born in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1932.  He taught himself to draw by copying Buck Rogers comics and science fiction pulp magazine illustrations.  A commercial art major in high school, John received a scholarship to the Minneapolis School of Art in 1950.  After service in the military, he became a commercial artist in San Francisco.  John then studied at the Sorbonne in Paris from 1956-1958.  Returning to California and the graphic arts field, he taught lettering and design at the San Francisco Art Institute from 1960-1966.  He also painted in oils, focusing on landscapes; his works are now in public and private collections.  John was appointed to the California Arts Commission by Gov. Ronald Reagan in 1967, serving as vice chairman and then as chairman from 1969-1972.

In l974, a chance visit to an antique shop inspired John to begin collecting ephemera, including postcards, labels, trade cards, Valentines, and so much more.   In 1985, John and his wife, Carolyn, established The Gifted Line, a giftware and licensing company that offered products in the marketplace designed from images from his collection. They operated the business until 1998.

Among other publications, John is the co-author of A Victorian Scrapbook, Joy to the World, A Victorian Christmas, Forget-Me-Nots, Parlor Cats, Nonsense and Common Sense, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas, all of which show extensive imagery from his collection.  He is the author of a new work (2008), Christmas Curiosities; Odd, Dark and Forgotten Christmas, published by Stewart, Tabori & Chang.  With Laura Alders and Holly Sudduth, John created Christmas stamps and Love stamps for the United States Postal Service. 

 

Articles on John Grossman, his collection, and products designed by him or under his direction have appeared in Cigar Aficionado, Collector's Showcase, Gift & Stationery Business, Holiday Crafts, USA Today, and Victoria.  A member of the Ephemera Society (U.K.) and the Ephemera Society of America, John was the recipient of the 1990 Maurice Rickards Award presented by the American society for his promotion of the public awareness of ephemera.  He has given papers at several ephemera conferences.  John Grossman died in 2016.

 

Carolyn Grossman is a watercolor artist, and a graphic designer using images from the collection as a basis for her extensive design portfolio.  She has been the Director of Licensing for The Collection since 1999.  She is also a member of the Ephemera Society of America and collects Victorian women accessories.



SCOPE AND CONTENT

 

The John and Carolyn Grossman Collection contains more than 250,000 printed and handwritten paper artifacts—chiefly lithography and chromolithography—from the 1800s and 1900s.  Many kinds of ephemera are represented, including calendars, greeting cards, trade cards, product labels, paper dolls, tickets, postcards, scrap, scrapbooks, sheet music, and a large collection of cigar box labels.  These objects have colorful images that portray the customs, attitudes and ideals of Victorian and Edwardian life: innocent children, garden-fresh flowers, romantic couples, holiday traditions, fashionable women, anthropomorphic animals, and cigar-smoking gentlemen.  The cigar label portion of the collection contains approximately 80,000 items, including cigar bands, cigar boxes, embossing dies, lithographic stones, progressive proof books, and proof sheets. In addition, there are more than 200 original watercolor sketches for cigar label art by commercial artists Henry Maier, John Fitz, William Momberger and Carl Mummert. 

 

As well, the collection includes puzzles, games, Christmas and Halloween decorations, children’s books, design books, product boxes (many for pencils and pen nibs), marriage certificates, Reward of Merit cards, and prints.  Original watercolor art, lithographic stones, embossing dies, proofs and progressive proof booklets demonstrate the chromolithography process.  In addition, there are samples of ribbons, textiles, wallpaper, and stationery, as well as catalogs for machine-made lace.  Photographs of Christmas trees and children with their gifts are also present.  Most of the images span one hundred years, from 1820 to 1920, but a few printed paper artifacts date from the 18th century, and the collection includes cigar box labels printed as late as 1964.

           

The Grossman Collection includes archives from the George Schlegel Lithographing Corp. (1849-c.1960).  Its contents document the creative output of this New York printing firm that was owned and operated by four generations of the Schlegel family. Original label art, keyline drawings, progressive proofs, lithographic stones, cigar bands, office file and shop file labels, title certificates, title folders, title registration cards, bills of sale and letters of correspondence between Schlegel employees, clients and jobbers comprise this special group.

 

 

Another special group within the Grossman Collection is materials documenting the history of the greeting card industry based in and around Worcester, Massachusetts, in the 19th century.  This special collection contains greeting cards, fancy scrap, lace paper, original production art and business documents.  It documents an early chapter in the development of a greeting card industry in America and indicates a working relationship between two Worcester businessmen: George C. Whitney, a Valentine manufacturer, and E. A. Timme, a printing die maker.

 

 

ORGANIZATION

 

The collection is, for the most part, arranged by type of material, and then subdivided by image.  This means that advertising items, including trade cards, product labels, show cards, etc., are arranged by image, not by what product was being advertised.  Cards with a holiday greeting, but not a typical holiday image, will be filed under the image not the holiday (for example, a Christmas card with a picture of a robin is more likely to be filed under Birds rather than Christmas).

 

Items are also divided by size, so scrap, greeting cards, pictures, etc., are found in several different locations. 

 

Cigar box labels dominate the contents of filing cabinets 15-20, 22-27, with the George Schlegel, Inc. archive primarily in cabinets 22-27.

 

The organization was accomplished by Grossman Collection curator David H. Mihaly, who arranged the great variety of ephemera into categories of type, image, and size.  Most of the items, excluding games and product containers, have been place in Mylar sleeves.

 

 

LANGUAGE OF MATERIALS
