George Comes to Hattiesburg Catalog
Garners National Prize
The recent exhibit
catalog published by the de Grummond Collection, Curious George
Comes to Hattiesburg: The Life and Work of H. A. and Margret Rey,
has been selected as the winner of the 2001 Katharine Kyes Leab
and Daniel J. Leab American Book Prices Current Exhibition Award
for Division Three. The award is administered by the Rare Books
and Manuscripts Section (RBMS) of the Association of College &
Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association.
The RBMS Exhibition Awards Committee selected our catalog from a
field of fifteen entries "for its excellent graphic design
and appealing text and focus." A certificate was presented
to Dee Jones at the annual meeting of the American Library Association
in San Francisco in June. Printed copies of the catalog are still
available from the de Grummond Collection.
