Louis Prang - Father of the American Christmas Card
December 3, 2022 - January 30, 2023
Louis Prang was a wood engraver and lithographer known for his early adoption of chromolithographic color printing. He was born on March 12, 1824, in Breslau, Prussian Silesia, now Poland, and emigrated to America in 1850. His company, L. Prang & Co., was the first company in America to commercially print holiday greeting cards for the public, giving Prang the unofficial title of "Father of the American Christmas Card."
The Christmas cards on display are from the Odell House Rochambeau Headquarters (OHRH) located in Hartsdale, which served as the headquarters of General Rochambeau and campsite for the French expeditionary forces under his command from July 6 to August 18, 1781, during the American Revolution. These cards were found in old cardboard cartons and rescued by the friends of OHRH to become a collection. There are many other things like artifacts and women’s crafts waiting to be cataloged.
