Biographical Sketch

Maud Fuller Petersham was born in Kingston, New York on August 5, 1890. The daughter of a Baptist minister, Maud grew up with three sisters in a parsonage. The family moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to Newburg, New York, and finally to Scranton, Pennsylvania. As a child, Maud loved picture books and liked to draw. After graduating from Vassar College she studied at the New York School of Fine and Applied Art. Her first job was in the art department at the International Art Service, an advertising firm, where she met her future husband, Miska Petersham.

Miska was born Petrezselyem Mikaly in Toeroekszentmiklos, Hungary, near Budapest on September 20, 1888. The son of a carpenter and blacksmith, Miska grew up in a simple Hungarian peasant home. Money was scarce, but he managed to scrape together a few pennies to buy a box of oil paints. In 1911 Miska moved to London. Unable to support himself with his art and upon the advice of a friend he came to America in 1912. Shortening his name to Petersham, he obtained work with the International Art Service where he met Maud Fuller.

The Petershams began illustrating books together, at first only for other authors. In 1929 they wrote and illustrated their first book, Miki, about their son. In 1946, the couple received the Caldecott Medal for The Rooster Crows, a book of American songs, rhymes, and games in the tradition of Mother Goose. Often they traveled to foreign lands such as Holland, Greece, Germany, and Palestine to do research for their books. They had a close working relationship with their juvenile editor and were allowed to plan their own books entirely from making the dummy to choosing the format, layout, colors, and type. Their routine consisted of Maud writing the stories and doing the roughs; then Miska would finish, doing the color separations on acetate and all the tedious hand work.

The Petershams wrote and illustrated more than sixty books for children and illustrated more than one hundred by other authors. When Miska died in 1960, Maud sold the Woodstock, New York, house in which they had lived and worked for forty years and moved to a smaller home in Woodstock. She died in 1971.

In addition to the 1946 Caldecott Medal for The Rooster Crows, the Petershams also received the 1942 Caldecott (Honor) Award in 1942 for An American ABC.

Scope and Content

The collection contains personal material, published works, unpublished and unidentified works, and works by other or unidentified artists. Personal papers are arranged within the categories of autobiographical material, biographical material, Maud Fuller family papers, Miska Petersham vital records, correspondence, miscellaneous personal papers, Caldecott Award memorabilia, promotional items, newspaper clippings and scrapbook. This material, dating from 1888 through 1971, includes photographs, holograph notes, manuscripts and typescripts, naturalization papers, passports, articles about the Petershams, book reviews, obituaries, correspondence with the de Grummond Collection, publishers, child fans and others, advertisements and promotional material.

Published works consist primarily of book-related material, with a few magazine illustrations, Children's Book Week material, and miscellaneous published works. The ninety-three book titles represented in the collection span a wide range both in date (1917-1958) and genre, including books written and illustrated by the Petershams and books illustrated by the Petershams for other authors.

Of the fifteen titles held in the collection that were both written and illustrated by the Petershams The Rooster Crows: A Book of American Rhymes (1945) stands out as a Caldecott Medal winner. This book is a collection of traditional American nursery rhymes, finger games, skipping rhymes, jingles, and counting-out rhymes. The collection includes an illustration and a proof for this title.

The first book the Petershams both wrote and illustrated was Miki: The Book of Maud and Miska Petersham (1929), the story of a boy who goes to Hungary, which was modeled after their own son, Miki. The collection holds several ink and watercolor illustrations and a proof for this title. Later they followed with Miki and Mary: Their Search for Treasures (1934) about a boy and girl's search for adventure and treasure and was also patterned after their son and his cousin, Mary. For this title the collection includes illustrations, dummies, press sheets, and proofs.

The Petersham's Story Book Series is a collection of twenty-five books published between 1933 and 1939 explaining different subjects such as coal, cotton, houses, oil, rice, silk, trains, and wheels. For these titles the collection contains sketches, dummies, and proofs, as well as press sheets for many of the books and color separations for The Story Book of Wheels (1935).

Several Petersham titles fall into the historical genre. America's Stamps: The Story of One Hundred Years of U.S. Postage Stamps (1947) tells the history and development of postage stamps in America. The collection includes manuscript notes, dummies, an illustration, press sheets, and proofs. Another historical title is Story of the Presidents of the United States of America (1953) which gives a short biographical profile of the presidents from Washington through Eisenhower. Included for this title are sketches and tracings, a dummy, illustrations, and material for new chapters on John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson.

The Petershams also created many religious books for which the collection holds material for seven titles. Among them is The Christ Child: As Told by Matthew and Luke (1931). For this title, the collection contains a sketch, an illustration, proofs, slides, and a pop-up nativity scene.

The Petershams illustrated many primers and readers. The collection holds materials for fourteen titles, five of which were written by Mabel Guinnip La Rue: Under the Story Tree (1923), The F-u-n Book (1924), In Animal Land (1924), The Billy Bang Book (1927), and Little Indians (1930). For each of these books the collection includes several proofs.

Unpublished and identified works include book and story titles, proofs of illustrations, poster illustrations, handkerchief designs, Miska Petersham's sketchbooks, and miscellaneous sketches and illustrations. The collection holds material for twenty-five book or short-story titles of uncertain publication. Among them is "Who's Who in Fairylore" (undated) which includes extensive manuscript notes from research, typescripts, illustrations, and a dummy. Another title is "The Brown Elf and the Cypress Tree" (undated) for which the collection holds manuscript notes, four typescripts, and a dummy. Most of these titles are represented by manuscripts or typescripts or sketches. Most, though not all, appear to have been written by one or both of the Petershams. The proofs, and many of the sketches and illustrations, were probably published in books, primers or magazines; however, their publication has not been determined at this time. The four sketchbooks of Miska Petersham are undated but appear to have predated his immigration to the United States.

Works by other or by unidentified artists include original sketches and paintings which are not identified or recognizable as the Petershams work, as well as art prints which may have served as inspiration to the Petershams.
