Audrey Arellanes was a remarkable woman who singlehandedly ran the bookplate society for over thirty years.
When she died her daughter Denetia wrote about her in this article.
Audrey corresponded with collectors, artists and many notable people on a regular basis.
She was reluctant to throw out anything. I remember one box which contained thirty years of movie ticket stubs
Here are a few of the letters Audrey received.
Here is another letter she received after writing to the American Poet Louis Untermeyer
Here is a link to an article from The Literary Hub about ten notable book collectors
