The Annette Campbell-White Collection

August 24, 2019 – January 5, 2020

A rare opportunity to see letters, books, and manuscripts by Modernist writers such as T. S. Eliot, Stéphane Mallarmé, Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Joseph Conrad, and others from the private collection of Annette Campbell-White, a pioneering venture capitalist and rare book collector.

Campbell-White served as the founder and senior managing partner of MedVenture Associates and as a founding member of the Wikipedia Endowment Advisory Board. Throughout her career, she has nurtured a second passion—collecting works by Modernist authors. Discover the networks of creative influences across generations, disciplines, and continents evident in Modernist literary expression.

Publication of Campbell-White's memoir, Beyond Market Value: A Memoir of Book Collecting and the World of Venture Capital, coincides with the exhibition and offers a compelling backstory to this selection of highlights from her collection.
