Box Inventory

Box/Folder

L. Children's Art & Letters

The 17 boxes in this series contain fan letters and drawings sent to Ezra Jack Keats from school children. Many were done as class projects, while others are letters from individuals. Photographs are included with some of the correspondence. The Ezra Jack Keats Foundation continues to receive packets of mail from schools via the publishers of Keats' books. When Keats was alive, he tried to answer as much of the mail as possible. Dr. Martin Pope, President of the Keats Foundation, has now assumed that duty.

Box and folder list information includes (when available): the name of the school, address, teacher's name, grade, and number of pieces of correspondence or art in the folder.
