Biographical / Historical:
The American Handicraft Council was founded in 1939 in Wilmington, Delaware. It merged with the Handcraft Cooperative League of America in 1942 to form the organization now known as the American Craft Council. Humphery Emery, who appears in this collection, was director of the Society of Arts and Crafts, Boston in the 1930s and became secretary of the American Handicraft Council upon its founding. The two organizations worked closely together in 1939-1940 to conduct an economic survey of handicrafts, first in New England, and later in the United States. As Emery kept papers concerning both organizations, additional material pertaining to the American Handicraft Council can be found in the papers of the Society of Arts and Crafts.
