Collection Summary

Abstract

Personal and institutional bookplates collected by Ruby V. Elliot.

Biographical Sketch

Ruby Vanette Elliot was born 22 September 1872 in Centreville, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Calvin Hudson McCauley, a prominent railroad attorney, and his wife Juliette (McGibney). She attended Syracuse University from 1892-1893 and married John Seaver Elliot in July of 1895 in Syracuse, N.Y. The two were later divorced and census records and a passport application indicate that Ruby later lived in Garden City, N.Y. and worked as a secretary. She seems to have been collecting bookplates as early as 1917, and the collection contains her notes about bookplate collections and sources, as well as a few notes from correspondents sending along their bookplates for her collection.
