NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle is honored to auction jewelry from the Estate of Henrie Jo “Bootsie” Barth as a highlight of the Important Jewelry sale on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 10am. Descended from one of Shreveport, Louisiana’s founding families, Henrie Jo Barth, known all her life as Bootsie, was educated at The Hockaday School in Dallas and Bryn Mawr College. She settled on New York’s Upper East Side and maintained close ties with Shreveport, where she had a second residence for many years.  

Bootsie was passionate about travel and frequently left her Manhattan home for destinations around the world. One month of every year was spent traveling throughout Europe with Paris as her base and another month was spent in Japan, based in Kyoto.

Bootsie was also passionate about music and philanthropy. She was a longtime and devoted scholarship supporter of The Juilliard School. For years she supported the education of many young artists at Juilliard, in all three divisions of the school. She was a constant presence at the performances of her scholarship recipients. Through a generous gift in her will, she is establishing the Bootsie Barth Scholarship Fund in Jazz Studies, the Bootsie Barth Scholarship Fund in Dance and the Bootsie Barth Scholarship Fund in Drama, which will nurture the development of young performing artists at Juilliard for years to come.  Her generosity will also be used to establish an annual jazz concert featuring Juilliard students and alumni.

Bootsie’s generosity also extended to other organizations. Among the institutions that will benefit from the sale of her estate are Bryn Mawr College, the Central Park Conservancy, Guiding Eyes for the Blind, and the Metropolitan Museum.

Property from the Estate of Henrie Jo “Bootsie” Barth reflects her passion for jewelry. With a keen eye for quality and design, she assembled an exceptional collection of jewelry by such makers as David Webb, Tiffany & Co. and Wander, France. Her collection comprises 34 lots offered throughout the sale.
