Biographical Sketch
Dorothy Haas was born in Racine, Wisconsin, and graduated from Marquette University in 1955. Upon graduation, she took a summer job with Whitman Publishing Division of Western Publishing Company in Racine. She quickly became a senior editor, occupying that position from 1955 to 1968. She moved to Worldbook Childcraft in Chicago in 1968, and worked as senior editor at that company until 1970. Rand- McNally hired Ms. Haas in 1970 to serve as editor of books for children and young adults within their trade division. She left Rand-McNally in 1983 when her department was dissolved.

At Whitman, Haas developed and supervised several series of books for young children, such as "Tween-Age Books," "Tell-a-Tale Books," "Big Tell-a-Tale Books," and "Tiny Tot Tales". Most of these series consisted of picture books for pre-literate children and early readers. In addition to editing these books, Ms. Haas also authored over twenty picture books for Whitman. At Worldbook Childcraft, she edited the Childcraft Annual 1969, a textbook for children about the human mind and body. At Rand-McNally, she worked with several authors, including Pamela Sampson, Tasha Tudor, and Walter Wangerin.

At Western Publishing, Haas wrote her first book, Little Joe's Puppy, in 1957. After leaving Western, she continued to write picture books for early readers, but also began writing early chapter books, and novels for young adults. When she retired from Rand-McNally in 1983, she devoted herself to writing on a full-time basis.

Scope and Content
While boxing these materials for shipment to the de Grummond Collection, Haas frequently wrote notes describing the context of creation for the materials in certain files. These notes are usually placed at the beginning of the relevant files.

The "Biography and Autobiography" series includes an autobiographical essay written for Something About the Author, and several interviews, one in print, one on audio tape, and two on videotape.

The materials in the "Books" series are arranged alphabetically by title. Within each title the materials are arranged in the probable order in which they were created. Most of the books documented in this collection are humorous adventure stories for children aged roughly eight to thirteen, including The Bear Upstairs, Burton and the Giggle Machine, Burton's Zoom Zoom Va-ROOM Machine, the "Peanut Butter and Jelly" series, Poppy and the Outdoors Cat, The Secret Life of Dilly McBean, Tink in a Tangle, and To Catch a Crook.

In The Bears Upstairs, two bears disguised as humans hide out from zookeepers in Wendy's building. Wendy helps them contact bears from another planet to come and rescue them. For this title, the collection contains correspondence, a typescript, a galley, publicity material, reviews, and fan mail. The "Peanut Butter and Jelly" series recounts the adventures of Jilly, the shy one, her outgoing best friend, Peanut, and their friends and teachers at Alcott School. The collection contains material for all nine books in this series. For every book, there is correspondence and one or more typescripts. For most titles, the collection holds outlines and photocopied illustrations, with Haas' comments. For three of these books, the collection contains galleys.

For the other novels, the collection holds correspondence and typescript(s) for each. For Burton and the Giggle Machine, The Secret Life of Dilly McBean, Tink in a Tangle, and To Catch a Crook, the collection also includes one galley. For Poppy and the Outdoor Cat, The Secret Life of Dilly McBean and Tink in a Tangle, the collection contains fan mail.

Haas also wrote installments for two series based on Disney characters. Haas wrote four picture books which were published by Bantam Books: Donald Learns a Lesson, Dumbo at Bat, Goofy's Big Race, and Mickey Finds a Kitten. For each of these books, the collection contains correspondence, outlines, and one or more typescripts. World Book Encyclopedia published the "Things To Do" series, also based on Disney characters. For this series, Ms. Haas wrote Countdown! Capers in Space; Sand in Your Shoes: Fun at the Beach; Sticks and Stones: Nature Crafts; Tubs Ahoy!; and Splatter and Dash: Paint and Color Fun. For each of these stories, the collection holds correspondence, outlines, and one or more typescripts.

The other books in this series include two works of non-fiction for children: Michael Jordan, a biography of the basketball star, and My First Communion. Finally, there is material for two books for ages six to eight based on Baum's The Wizard of Oz. For each of these titles, the collection holds correspondence, outlines, and one or more typescripts.

The "Editorial Files" series contains a 42-page essay by Haas describing her experiences as an editor and her relationships with authors. She divided the essay into three parts, each corresponding to one of the companies she worked for. Likewise, the series is divided into three subseries. The subseries on Whitman Publishing contains correspondence, some material relating to specific books, and notes about the editorial process. The material from World Book Publications includes an outline for Childcraft Annual 1969, and manuscript poems from contributor David McCord. Haas also donated an annotated copy of the book itself. The annotations indicate which sections Haas wrote herself.

The final subseries dealing with Rand-McNally Corporation contains documentation, usually correspondence, on Haas' relationships with several authors. For a few authors, Pamela Sampson, Ann Tompert, and Walter Wangerin, the collection also contains one or more typescripts. The plurality of material in this subseries relates to Haas' working relationship and personal friendship with Tasha Tudor. In addition to general correspondence and biographical information about Tudor, the subseries contains a nine-page essay about Ms. Haas' relationship with Ms. Tudor. Finally, there is correspondence relating to four books and three advent calendars, all illustrated by Tasha Tudor and published by Rand-McNally. The books are A Child's Garden of Verses (1981), The Night Before Christmas (1975), The Springs of Joy (1979), and A Time to Keep (1977). For A Time to Keep, the collection holds three typescripts. The Rand-McNally subseries also contains a file of awards won by Haas and her authors, and a file of instruments (slide rule, metric converters, etc.) used by Haas in the course of her editorial duties.

The "Correspondence" series consists of four subseries: Correspondence with the de Grummond Collection, Personal Correspondence, Political Correspondence, and Fan Mail.

The "Published Books" series contains copies of nineteen books. These books are being kept separately from the de Grummond Published Works Collection to maintain their mint condition, in case a publisher wishes to reprint them.
