NOTES ON CARLING GRESHAM

Dave Bowers writes: "Carling Gresham once wrote me a long
diatribe about how I was trying to act unduly sophisticated
and elitist by referring to my firm's productions as catalogues
(with 'ue') rather than catalogs. I responded that he would
surely have a quarrel with Wayte Raymond, had Raymond still
lived, about his 'Standard Catalogue of U.S. Coins,' with New
Netherlands, which also used catalogue, etc., etc. I then and
still do think it is nice. However, it is Whitman style not to
use 'ue,' and who am I to quarrel with the 'Chicago Manual of
Style'?   I also like theatre, not theater.  But I do say
'to-may-to,' not 'to-mah-to.' "
