Biographical Sketch

Mary Slattery Stolz was born on March 24, 1920 in Boston, Massachusetts. She attended the Birch Wathen School in New York City where she concentrated on the study of literature and history. She displayed an early talent for writing and served as assistant editor of her school magazine, Birch Leaves. Stolz also attended Columbia University from 1936 to 1938 and the Katherine Gibbs School.

Stolz married at the age of eighteen and for years stopped writing in order to devote time to housekeeping and to her young son Bill. After her marriage ended, Stolz began to experience chronic pain which grew increasingly worse until eventually, by 1949, she was confined to her home. When her doctor, Thomas C. Jaleski, learned that she had once enjoyed writing, he advised her to begin a novel so that she would have something to occupy her time while she was houseridden. This novel became her first published book, To Tell Your Love (1950). Under Jaleski's care, Stolz's illness eventually disappeared and she continued to write. Stolz and Dr. Jaleski were married in 1965.

Most of Stolz's books are fiction written for children and teenagers, although she has also published one adult novel and one nonfictional work. She has also written for such magazines as Cosmopolitan, Ladies' Home Journal, and Seventeen. Two of her books -- Belling the Tiger (1961) and The Noonday Friends (1965) -- were runners-up for the Newbery Award. In a Mirror (1953) won a Child Study Children's Book Award and The Bully of Barkham Street (1963) won a Boys' Club Junior Book Award. The Edge of Next Year (1974) was a finalist for the National Book Award and also made the Boston Globe/Horn Book Honor List. Several other books by Stolz have also received honors and awards. In 1982 Stolz received a George G. Stone Recognition of Merit Award for her entire body of work.

Mary Stolz's varied interests included social and environmental issues, reading, cooking, and baseball. She continued to live on the Gulf Coast of Florida until her death in 2006 at age 86.


Scope and Content

The collection contains biographical information about Stolz, correspondence, critical reviews of several Stolz novels, items related to honors and awards received by Stolz, clippings and articles collected by her, materials related to speeches and public appearances, notebooks, stories and research papers written by Stolz while she was in high school, and unpublished and unidentified material. Seventeen book titles which Stolz either authored or contributed to are represented in the collection; it is this material which constitutes the bulk of the papers. There are also materials related to some of Stolz's published short stories and articles. Stolz's personal material -- biographical information, correspondence, speeches and public appearances, etc. -- is grouped first, and followed by published material. Unpublished and unidentified material is grouped last. All materials have been arranged chronologically whenever possible with the exception of book materials, which is arranged alphabetically by book title and within title according to the probable order in which the materials were created.

The correspondence has been divided into subseries consisting of letters to and from the de Grummond Collection, book publishers, magazine publishers, Stolz's literary agency, and professional and personal correspondents, as well as fan mail. Much of the publisher correspondence is with Stolz's editor and close friend Ursula Nordstrom. Stolz is often addressed as "Molly" in these and other letters; it is the name by which she is known to her friends.

The collection holds original materials for all but two of the seventeen book titles represented in the collection. For The Noonday Friends (1965) and By the Highway Home (1973) the collection contains only Scholastic book club order forms for paperback editions of these books. Stolz is the author of every book represented in the collection except for Jane Austen's Emma. For this title Stolz contributed the introduction to a 1967 Scholastic paperback edition of the book.

The earliest title for which the collection holds materials is Because of Madeline (1957), a young adult novel representative of Stolz's early works, which were primarily aimed at teenaged girls. There are four pages of holograph notes for this novel contained in the collection. The Edge of Next Year (1974) is also a young adult novel; it tells how a thirteen-year-old boy reconciles himself to the sudden, tragic death of his mother in an automobile accident. For this book, which was highly lauded by critics, the collection includes a manuscript fragment, a typescript fragment, and three complete sets of marked galleys. Go and Catch a Flying Fish (1979) and its sequel, What Time of Night Is It? (1981) tell how the Reddick children and their father attempt to cope when the mother of the family abandons them. Held in the collection for these two titles are such original materials as typescripts, page proofs, paste-ups, and blueprints. Ferris Wheel (1977) tells the story of Polly Lewis, a fifth-grade Vermont farm girl whose best friend moves far away. For this title the collection holds a corrected typescript and two incomplete sets of galleys. For Cider Days (1978), the sequel to Ferris Wheel in which Polly finds another close friend to replace her lost one, there are three complete typescripts and a typescript of a short story based on a chapter from the novel. Also included is a full-color sketch, probably for the dust jacket, which was perhaps painted by Stolz.

A number of Stolz's juvenile novels are also represented in the collection. A Dog on Barkham Street (1960) tells how a young boy acquires a dog of his own while simultaneously dealing with a problem common to many other young boys: a neighborhood bully. For this book, which was based on the real experiences of Stolz's own son when he was a child, the collection holds a typescript photocopy fragment and the script for a 1961 Carnival of Books radio program which featured a brief dramatization of the novel. Stolz clearly revealed her ability to tell a story from differing points of view when she wrote The Bully of Barkham Street (1963), which essentially tells the same story as A Dog on Barkham Street with one important difference -- the story is told through the eyes of the bully this time instead of the victim.

For The Cuckoo Clock (1987), a funny and gentle children's novel about an orphan who is apprenticed to a master clockmaker, there are two typescripts. Cat Walk (1983), one of several Stolz books which reflect the author's love for cats, relates the extraordinary adventures of a six-toed cat who finally finds a permanent home. The collection holds two typescripts for this title. For Say Something (1968), a children's picture book, holdings include a photocopied typescript. The Story of a Singular Hen and Her Peculiar Children (1969) is a children's book about a hen who adopts different baby animals and tries to raise them as chickens. Holdings for this title include an unbound proof with dust jacket. In The Dragons of the Queen (1969), two arrogant American tourists in Mexico learn an important lesson when they are forced to accept the hospitality of a strange old woman who insists her crumbling hacienda is actually a castle, her dogs are dragons, and she herself is a queen. For this title the collection contains only a manuscript fragment. Night of Ghosts and Hermits: Nocturnal Life on the Seashore (1985) is a children's nonfiction work for which the collection holds notes, manuscript and typescript fragments, and one complete typescript.

Related to several of Stolz's novels are the contents of two undated notebooks included in the collection. These contain the author's handwritten notes and partial rough drafts for Cider Days, Go and Catch a Flying Fish, and What Time of Night Is It?, as well as notes and scenes from unidentified fictional works.

Though Stolz is best known as a novelist, she has also had numerous short stories and articles published in national magazines. The collection contains original materials for "Good Choice" and "Potato Vacation," two children's stories published in Cricket magazine. For "Storm Under Glass," published in Seventeen magazine in 1951, the collection holds printed pages from the magazine. Six articles written by Stolz are also represented in the collection. These span a period of twenty years and appeared in such publications as The Writer, Saturday Review, Woman's Day, and the New York Times. Materials for these articles consist of original or photocopied pages from the articles themselves, with the exception of one 1966 Woman's Day article for which there is a typescript carbon copy.

The collection is very fortunate to hold a number of items written by Stolz between the years 1935 and 1936, while she was still in high school. These holograph materials (signed "Molly Slattery") reveal the author as an already gifted writer at the age of fifteen. Among the high school writings are manuscripts for two short stories and compositions for English and history classes. There is also a copy of the Spring 1936 issue of Birch Leaves, the Birch Wathen School literary magazine for which Stolz (under the name of Molly Slattery) served as assistant editor. This magazine contains both a short story and a poem by Stolz.

Also contained in the collection is a significant amount of unidentified or unpublished material. There are complete typescripts for five novels, which may or may not have been published. There are also thirty-two pages of holograph notes which relate to an unidentified novel or novels, as well as typescripts and manuscripts for ten short stories. It is not known whether these stories were ever published; it is definitely known that some of the ones for adults were submitted to magazines such as McCall's and Cosmopolitan. Researchers should consult Stolz's correspondence with magazine publishers for possible clues as to the publication of these stories.

There are also manuscripts and typescripts for several unidentified articles, speeches, or essays by Stolz. The topics covered in these range from Stolz's views on adolescent novels to her political and social commentaries. Among the miscellaneous unidentified materials are holograph notes, a memo to Stolz's son Bill (William B. Stolz), and a typescript research paper of uncertain origin.
