McCrindle, Joseph F.
American, 1923 - 2008
Biography
Born and raised in New York City, Joseph F. McCrindle attended Harvard University and Yale Law School. After working briefly on Wall Street and in publishing companies in New York and London, he established himself first as a literary agent, and then founded the quarterly literary journal Transatlantic Review, based in London, which was in print from from 1959 to 1977. After closing the journal he created what is now known as the Joseph F. McCrindle Foundation to award grants to arts, music, and social justice organizations. It also awards an annual prize to promising creative writing students. McCrindle's principal collecting interest was for old master drawings, but he also bought Italian Baroque paintings, 19th-century drawings, works by British artists such as Duncan Grant, Augustus John, and Walter Sickert, historical manuscripts and letters, and pre-Columbian art. His drawing collection has been exhibited at the Princeton University Art Museum, with whom he was long associated as a donor and patron. McCrindle died at his home in Manhattan on 11 July 2008. His entire collection was distributed to more than thirty institutions in the U.S.
