de Grummond Collection Receives 3rd NEH Grant

For the third time since 1991, the de Grummond Children's Literature Collection has received a substantial grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Dee Jones, project director, submitted the proposal in July 2000 and was informed of the award in April 2001. The $229,677 award will allow for the sorting, arrangement, description, and cataloging of the original manuscripts and illustrations created by 73 authors and illustrators whose work is significant to the study of children's literature. The arrangement and description of original materials, as well as making these materials accessible through various electronic sources is a time-consuming and exacting undertaking.Funds received through this grant and matched by funds from The University of Southern Mississippi, will provide salaries for three full-time employees for a period of nearly two years, beginning in October 2001..

 

The collections that will be processed include personal papers, typescripts, correspondence, drafts, galleys, illustrations, and other related materials. A descriptive register giving a biographical sketch, a description of the materials held in the de Grummond Collection, and a folder-by-folder listing of all holdings will be created for each of the 73 collections. These registers will be available through the de Grummond Collection Web page making the full text accessible to researchers throughout the world. Each register will contain a photograph of the author or illustrator, as well as scans of selected manuscripts and illustrations.

The following is a list of the collections that will be processed as a part of this grant. The amount of cubic feet held for each author or illustrator is also provided.
