Description
Margaret B. Harrison (1911-1980) became interested in fine bookbinding in the 1930's and apprenticed for a time with master bookbinder Hazel Dreis.

In September, 1990, the preservation department of the General Library of the University of California at Davis was dedicated in her honor. The collection contains material catalogs and samples, invoices and expense ledgers, clippings, correspondence, and journals relating to fine bookbinding.
