Overview and metadata sections

Squire, Ann

It is possibe that this Anne Squire is the same as the "Ann Squire" who was a friend of John Butler Yeats in New York City. That "Ann" has been described as a successful interior decorator.

The collection consists primarily of selected letters to Anne Squire from literary figures and friends. Most of the letters are undated. There are eight letters from the novelist and poet Amélie Rives, dating between 1903 and 1906. Other correspondents include William Cohen, Frederick King, and Arthur Merrick. There are also several letters from unidentified authors. Also included is a manuscript poem (3 pp.) presumably written by Squire, titled "Dedicated to Misther [sic.] McMiller," bearing the note "The Aldine Hotel, Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, September 14th, 1900."

The collection is organized by date.

Material was purchased in December 1953.
