Biographical Sketch

Gloria D. Miklowitz is the author of almost 50 fiction and nonfiction books for children of all ages. Over half of her books deal with important social issues that involve teens; three books were adapted for televison after-school viewing. Born in New York on May 18, 1927 she became an avid reader at an early age and wrote her first story,"My Brother Goo Goo" in the third grade. She attended Hunter College from 1944-1945 and graduated from the University of Michigan in 1948 bachelor's degree in English. She worked briefly at Bantam Books in New York, married a scientist, Julius Miklowitz, and moved to Pasadena, California in 1951. There she worked as at the U.S. Naval Ordnance Test Station first as a secretary then as a scriptwriter of documentary films on rockets and torpedoes.

After her second son was born, Ms. Miklowitz left scriptwriting to become a full-time mother. She began reading picture books (ten a week) to her boys as soon as they could understand words. Eager tp continue to write she took a class called "Writing for Publication" where she learned of Follett's beginning to Read Contest. She entered Barefoot Boy (1964) in the contest and the book was bought and published in 1964. In the next few years she sold a number of picture books and then middle grade biographies as her sons moved into fifth and sixth grade.

Ms. Miklowitz's first young adult book Turning Off (1973), was inspired by conversations with her housekeeper, whose son was a dropout living in a camp for drug addicts. "She would tell me about all the problems she had with one of her sons involved in drugs. That, combined with talks I'd had with the director of the Los Angeles Zoo about young people involved in animal rescue operations...resulted in Turning Off."

Serious social and emotional topics are often the subjects of Ms. Miklowitz's young adult fiction. She has written on such issues as rape, suicide, AIDS, sexual and physical abuse, nuclear holocaust, racism, sexism, cults, and teenage pregnancy. She was once quoted by Bantam Books as saying, "I write because I like to try on different lives through my characters and because I want to help young people find answers to their problems."

An important part of Ms. Miklowitz's writing is her ability to thoroughly research her topic. A large part of the collection includes newspaper and journal articles, interviews, pamphlets, photographs, and newsletters. When writing Did You Hear What Happened to Andrea? (1979), she spent a year working on a rape hot-line. She was once quoted as saying, "Sometimes I gather so much material it's hard to keep track of it all."

Ms. Miklowitz has had recognition for her writing from the Child Study Association, the National Council for Social Studies, the Children's Book Council, and the New York Public Library. In 1984, she won the Western Australia Young Reader Book Award for Did You Hear What Happened to Andrea?

Three of her books were later televised. "Andrea's Story: A Hitchhiking Tragedy," was aired as an ABC "After-School Special" in September of 1983 and won 5 Emmys. "The Day the Senior Class Got Married" aired in 1985 on the CBS "School Break Special" and won the Humanatus Prize for its humanitarian values. "The War Between the Classes" was also a CBS program and won the Emmy for the Best Children's Special of 1986.

Ms. Miklowitz was a member of PEN International and was the Secretary of the Los Angeles chapter. She has also served as Secretary and Vice-President of the California Writers Guild. When she is not researching topics or writing new books, she lectures at schools and conferences for librarians and teachers.

Scope and Content

The collection contains typescripts, galleys, proofs, dummies, correspondence, and research materials for 37 titles. There are also typescripts for two unpublished books. All of the books in this collection fall into three categories, non-fiction, easy reader books, and young adult social novels. The titles are arranged alphabetically and within each title, the materials are arranged according to the probable order in which they were created. The correspondence was arranged by title with the exception of correspondence with the de Grumman Collection.

Barefoot Boy (1964) was Ms. Miklowitz's first book and was sent to Follett in a writing contest for the "Beginning-to-Read" series. It is the story of Paul Steven, a boy who hated to wear shoes. There is correspondence, contest rules, and typescripts for this book. After Follett published Barefoot Boy, she wrote more easy to read books including, The Zoo that Moved (1968), The Parade Starts at Noon (1969), and Sad Song, Happy Song (1973). The Marshmallow Caper (1971) is based on the true story of some polar bears who ate marshmallows and ice cream from a snack bar when the zoo flooded. All of these books have typescripts, and correspondence. There are also galleys for The Zoo that Moved and The Marshmallow Caper.

Ms. Miklowitz has also written non-fiction books that would interest both older and younger children. The Zoo Was My World (1969) was co-authored with Dr. Wesley Young, a former director of the Los Angeles Zoo. In the book, he shares some of his adventures and stories while working at the zoo. There are research materials, typescripts, proofs, and correspondence, as well as a galley, dummy, and blues. She has also written four biographies, Harry Truman (1975), Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1977), Nadia Comaneci (1977),and Natalie Dunn, World Roller Skating Champion (1979). There are research notes and typescripts for all of the titles. There are also galleys for Harry Truman and Natalie Dunn, World Roller Skating Champion. Earthquake! (1977) began as a simple picture book in 1971 and was bought by Putnam, but never published. She then rewrote the book using more in-depth research and sold it to Messner, who published the book in 1977. She also wrote The Young Tycoons: Ten Success Stories(1981) and Movie Stunts and the People Who Do Them (1980). There are typescripts, proofs, and photographs for both of these titles.

Ms. Miklowitz is probably most noted for her ability to present both sides of a social issue facing many teenagers. Twenty of the books in the collection fall into this category. She spends hours researching topics, using ideas she reads about in newspapers, and interviewing teenagers and social workers. Three of her books have been made into television specials and have won Emmys. She has written about such subjects as rape, physical and sexual abuse, suicide, teenage pregnancy, and drug abuse.

Five of the books in the collection deal specifically with some type of physical, mental or sexual abuse. Secrets Not Meant to Be Kept (1987), Desperate Pursuit (1992), The Killing Boy(1993), Runaway (1977), and Past Forgiving (1995) all address these issues and how the characters find answers to their problems. In Past Forgiving, Alex falls head over heels for Cliff, but when the relationship turns abusive, she has a hard time escaping him. Desperate Pursuit is the story of Nicole, who is being stalked by her former boyfriend. There are typescripts and correspondence for all of these titles. There are also research materials and proofs for Secrets Not Meant to Be Kept and Past Forgiving.

Another story that involves sexual abuse is Did You Hear What Happened to Andrea? (1979). In the book, 15 year old Andrea is raped when she hitchhikes and receives a ride from a strange man. Ms. Miklowitz spent a year working on a rape hot line and interviewing teenagers to get a better understanding of the emotions, stress, and physical pain of being a rape victim. There are typescripts, correspondence, dust jackets, and a review. One of the dust jackets was rejected by Ms. Miklowitz because of the artist's portrayal of Andrea and her suggestive clothing. The final jacket, as well as her letters of concern over the jacket are also included. The book later became an ABC "After-school Special" and won 5 Emmys.

Two of the books in the collection, Anything to Win (1989) and Turning Off (1973), deal with drug abuse. In Anything to Win, Cam must decide if he wants to take steroids to gain weight for a football scholarship. Turning Off was Ms. Miklowitz's first young adult novel and also deals with drug abuse. There are typescripts, research notes and correspondence for both books.

Ms. Miklowitz has also written a variety of books on several other subjects. Good- bye Tomorrow (1987) deals with a boy who has contracted AIDS from a blood transfusion. In the story, Alex has to deal with friends, family, and teammates, as well as a girlfriend he may have infected. The story is told in three viewpoints and describes how each is feeling and reacting to Alex's problem. In Close to the Edge (1983), Jenny tries to reach out to her friend Cindy who tries to commit suicide. Ms. Miklowitz addresses sexism and racism in The War Between the Classes (1985), when students take part in the "Color Game," in which they are assigned "a social status" and minority roles are reversed. This book was also a CBS "School Break Special"and won an Emmy for the Best Children's Special of 1986. In After the Bomb (1987), Philip learns to make decisions and stand up to his older brother when a nuclear accident destroys Los Angeles. Standing Tall, Looking Good(1990) describes the lives of three teenagers during basic training in the Army. Ms. Miklowitz spent many hours interviewing men and women who had just finished basic training, as well as officers and drill sergeants in the Army. There are typescripts, research materials, and correspondence for all of these titles. There are proofs for The War Between the Classes and Good-bye Tomorrow as well as galleys and a dust jacket for Close to the Edge.

Other books in the collection include, Suddenly Super Rich (1989), Love Story, Take Three (1986), Unwed Mother (1977), A Time to Hurt a Time to Heal (1974), The Day the Senior Class Got Married (1983), The Emerson High Vigilantes (1988), and The Love Bombers (1980). In The Day the Senior Class Got Married, two engaged students taking Dr. Woemer's economics class have to simulate the economics of marriage. They realize that marriage is not what they had anticipated and take a closer look at their relationship. This book was also made into a CBS "School Break Special." The Love Bombers is about Jenna, who finds out that her brother Jeremy, who is attending Berkeley, has joined a religious cult. There are typescripts, galleys, proofs, and blues for this title. There are typescripts, research materials, correspondence, and proofs for The Day the Senior Class Got Married, Love Story ,Take Three,, The Emerson High Vigilantes, Suddenly Super Rich, and A Time to Hurt a Time to Heal. Ms. Miklowitz has also written two Caprice Romances, Carrie Loves Superman (1983) and Before Love (1982). There are typescripts for both of these titles.
