Satterthwaite, Pennington, 1870-1946

Pennington Satterthwaite was the son of Rosalie Pennington and Franklin Satterthwaite. He was born in Newark, N.J., in 1870, graduated from the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University) in 1893, then studied art in Paris till 1900. After returning from Paris, Satterthwaite became an architect in New York and New Jersey. Among the buildings he designed was the Class of 1889 Boathouse at Princeton. He also served as a secretary of the industrial branch of the War Department with the District Board Division No. 2 of New Jersey during WW II. He died on April 27, 1946, in Summit, N.J.

The Pennington Satterthwaite Papers consists of various documents pertaining to Satterthwaite's early life up to and including his time as an undergraduate at Princeton University (then the College of New Jersey). Included are clippings relating to his participation in the Agassiz Association, a science club of which Satterthwaite was a member. Also notable are a series of photographs depicting Satterthwaite and other members of the Class of 1893 as students. The collection also contains two wooden block stamps depicting what appear to be cartoons of ancient Rome.

The papers appear to have been given to the Princeton University Library in February of 1967 by Franklin B. Satterwaite '38.
