Juvenile Miscellany

In the beginning, the de Grummond Collection's newsletter, Juvenile Miscellany, was published four times per year. However, due to a small staff and the demands of a growing Collection, publication was reduced to twice per year in 1988. Budget constraints reduced publication even further in 1998, making the newsletter an annual event. After a four year hiatus, we are pleased to announce that the Collection has resumed publication of JM at least annually, beginning with the Winter 2007 issue (Vol. 28, No. 1). Volumes 24-28 and an index for Volumes 1-24 are avaliable online.
