Background of the Howard Pyle Manuscript Collection in the Delaware Art Museum

After the death of Howard Pyle, a memorial exhibition of his work was held in Wilmington in March, 1912. At the same time a spontaneous movement was started to acquire a public collection of his pictures. About eighty paintings and pen drawings were purchased by general subscription, and the Wilmington Society of the Fine Arts was founded and empowered to act as custodian.

In 1915, 69 black and white illustrations were purchased from Charles Scribner’s Sons, and added to this nucleus.

In 1919, 50 pen drawings were secured through the kind offices of Mr. Willard S. Morse.

In 1920, 11 vignettes and pen drawings were purchased from Mrs. Howard Pyle.

In 1923, upon the completion of the Society’s gallery in the Wilmington Institute Free Library building, Mrs. Charles Copeland, then president of the Society, presented and installed the mural decorations, “The Genus of Art,” by Howard Pyle, which were removed from the original setting in his house, in a specially prepared room at the library. In 1969 these were given to the Tri-County Conservancy for installation in Chadds Ford.

In 1923, Mr. Willard S. Morse gave the Society his collection of approximately 200 drawings and paintings, including many early examples of Pyle’s work, and also donated a complete set of autographed first editions of Pyle’s writings as well as a complete set of reproductions of his published illustrations.

In 1925, Mr. Morse donated a series of sketch books covering a period of thirty-five years work and containing the initial sketches for much of Pyle’s illustrations…

In 1952, Mrs. Lydia Pyle gave a set of three scrapbooks containing Pyle’s published illustrations arranged in chronological order in memory of her late husband, Theodore Pyle.

Box 20 – Willard S. Morse Collection

Willard Samuel Morse (1856-1935) of New York and California was Director and member of the Executive committee of the American Smelting and Refining Company until he retired in 1922. His wife was Anna Fisher of Seaford, Delaware. By training Mr. Morse was an accountant; at one time he was a. bank teller. He was an expert in working on metallurgical problems, and his love of figures and his meticulous accuracy are revealed in the way he annotated his books when he became-a book collector. He kept detailed bibliographies and records for each of his collections.

After he retired, Mr. Morse spent most of his time on his books. He had already done considerable work on the family genealogy, and had started collections of Eugene Field, Mark Twain, Bret Harte, Joaquin Miller, and others. About 1920 his friend Henry Wagner had given him some Howard Pyle prints and two original sketches. Mr. Morse was very pleased with them, and he became an avid Pyle collector. The bibliography he compiled with Gertrude Brincklé, Howard Pyle, A Record of His Illustrations and Writings, was published by the Wilmington Society of the Fine Arts in 1921. In 1923 Mr. Morse presented to the Society his collection of books written or illustrated by Howard Pyle, including a set of autographed first editions. The collection also includes reproductions of all the book and magazine illustrations, arranged chronologically in folders, numerous pen and ink drawings, and a set of pencil sketches mounted with their final printed reproductions.

Pasted in all the Morse books were the Morse bookplate designed by Howard Pyle. In addition, each collection had an extra distinctive bookplate with ruled lines for bibliographical comments. Mr. Morse was generous with his time and his collections, and the care with which he noted or annotated his books is an invaluable help to scholars. His Eugene Field collection is now in the public library in Denver; the Joaquin Miller collection is in the Claremont Colleges Library; the University of Southern California has the Ambrose Bierce, the William Dean Howells, and the Vincent Starrett collections.
