Fitzroy Carrington

Fitzroy Carrington (1869–1954) was an American editor, born at Surbiton, Surrey, England. His high school education was at Victoria College, Jersey, and he came to the United States in 1886. He obtained an honorary College degree in the USA shortly before teaching at Harvard. His brother was the famed writer and psychic researcher Hereward Carrington.

For 21 years (1892–1913) he was identified with Frederick Keppel & Co. (New York) dealers in etchings and engravings, being a member of the firm after 1899. During this period he made a specialty of selecting, arranging, and writing introductions for artistic editions of such works as Dante's New Life; The Queen's Garland (Elizabethan verse); Rossetti's Pictures and Poems; William Morris's The Doom of King Acristus; The King's Lyrics (1899); The Shepherd's Pipes (1903); The Pilgrim's Staff (1906).

In 1911, the year before publishing Prints and their Makers, he had undertaken the editorship of The Print Collector’s Quarterly, a journal unique in the United States. He continued to be editor after 1913, although then giving up his business interests to become lecturer on the history and principles of engraving, at Harvard University, and curator of prints at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. He resigned as editor of The Print Collector’s Quarterly in 1917, but became the American editor of the same periodical in 1921. He is the author of Engravers and Etchers (Scammon Lectures, 1921) and On Print Collecting (1929).

This can easily be expanded by referring to some of the New York Who's Who, a few magazine articles and other book references.
