HARVEY WILDER BENTLEY (USA, 1901–90)

Harvey Wilder Bentley was born in San Francisco, California, on November 19, 1901. After he graduated from Lowell High School in San Francisco, Bentley attended Yale University and the University of Michigan. From 1930–33, he worked at Carnegie Institute of Technology working on his skills in fine printing. In 1932, he became an associate member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. He then moved to Berkeley, California, where he established a publishing business, producing limited editions of finely printed books, portfolios, scrolls and cards. In addition to his printing work, he was also a prolific poet, calligrapher and brush artist. In 1943, the De Young Museum exhibited his brush drawings, and from 1946–56, he was a professor of English and Philosophy at the College of the Pacific and Stockton Junior College. He taught at the San Francisco State College until his retirement in 1971. Bentley died in Berkeley on April 30, 1990.
