Frederic Wilson Main, born ca. 1877, was engaged in paper manufacturing and had many contacts with book designers and printers. He worked for the Worthy Paper Company Association in West Springfield, Massachusetts, before becoming Vice President of the Hurlbat Paper Company in South Lee, Massachusetts, retiring in 1942.

Correspondence between Main and book designers and printers, such as Frederic W. Goudy, William A. Kittredge, and Daniel B. Updike. In addition, there are articles, newspaper clippings, printed ephemera, and images from or concerning book designers and printers. Miscellaneous photogravures, including a signed image of Theodore Roosevelt, are also in the collection.

The Frederic Wilson Main Papers are complemented by printed works collected by Main and added to the book collection in the George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives. Main's books and pamphlets are identified by a Frederic Wilson Main bookplate.
