Biographical Sketch

Maia Teresa Wojciechowska was born August 7, 1927 in Warsaw, Poland to Zofia and Zygmunt Wojciechowski, a war-time chief of staff for the Polish Air Force. She attended schools in Poland, France, and England, developing an intense dislike for formal education. With the outbreak of World War II, her family moved westward with a string of refugees, ending up in France. They were overtaken by the Germans a year later. Due to her dislike of the French and her refusal to speak the language, Wojciechowska attended as many as seventeen schools in one year. She had a rebellious nature that has remained with her throughout her life and greatly influenced her writing. At eighteen she claims to have held a record seventy-two jobs and held a variety more in the course of her life, including undercover detective, restaurant hostess, masseuse, professional tennis player and instructor, ghost writer, and translator for Radio Free Europe.

In 1942, the Wojciechowskis moved to California. She attended Immaculate Heart College in Hollywood and continued to work at various jobs, including as a copygirl for Newsweek in 1956, assistant editor of RWDSU Record (labor newspaper) in 1957, assistant editor of American Hairdresser from 1958- 1960, literary agent from 1960-1961, and publicity manager for Hawthorn Books, Inc. from 1960-1962. In 1950 Wojciechowska married Selden Rodman, also a writer. They had one daughter, Oriana, and divorced in 1957.

In 1952 her first book for children, Market Day for `Ti Andre, was published under the name Maria Rodman. Since then she has published two additional books for adults under this name and seventeen titles for children as Maia Wojciechowska. She also published articles in various magazines and translated an off-Broadway play in 1962. In 1970 she married Richard Larkin and divorced in 1981. Having made her home in Santa Fe, New Mexico for many years, she resided in Mahwah, New Jersey with her adopted daughter Leonora during the 1980s and early 1990s. She recently moved to Laguna Beach, California.

Wojciechowska has been very active in politics. She is concerned with a number of causes from abortion to education. A Roman Catholic, she feels today's morals have decayed and that government has spun a complex web of bureaucracy; these themes are never far from her writing. For several years in the early to mid 1990's, she devoted herself to local politics in Mahwah, New Jersey, running for several offices, including mayor, and serving as a councilwoman and as a member of several committees. As a politician, she was energetic, idealistic, and confrontational.

Wojciechowska's greatest literary accomplishment was winning the John Newbery Medal in 1965 for Shadow of a Bull, which was also named a New York Herald Tribune Children's Spring Book Festival Awards honor book. She was awarded the Deutscher Jugendbuchpreis in 1968.

During the early 1990's, Wojciechowska's brother Chris started a publishing house, Pebble Beach Press. One of his first projects was a series of approximately sixteen children's books to be written by his sister. Each title would begin with the phrase "Dreams of" and deal with a young person's struggle to achieve his or her athletic or professional goals. However, the series was discontinued after publication of the first three titles.

Scope and Content

The Wojciechowska Papers are arranged into six divisions: Personal Papers; Professional Papers; Published Works; "Dreams of" Series and Pebble Beach Press; Unpublished and Unidentified Works; and Miscellaneous Papers. The material relating to the "Dreams" Series of children's books contains both published and unpublished manuscripts. Each of these divisions is further subdivided into series and subseries, with material usually arranged alphabetically or chronologically. Researchers may find it necessary to cross-reference extensively within the papers. This scope and content note, and "see also" references within the container list, will emphasize some of the intellectual relationships which are not clear from the arrangement.

Overall, the collection is composed largely of correspondence and unpublished works and original materials for published titles. The correspondence is wide- ranging, including very personal letters to friends and family members, queries to agents, publishers, producers, and directors, book contracts and royalty statements, and letters to politicians, religious figures, editors, television stations, and others espousing various causes in which Wojciechowska believed strongly. A good portion of the personal correspondence and miscellaneous material is written in Polish. The bulk of the collection was created from the 1970's through the 1990's.

Wojciechowska's Personal Papers consist of the following series: Autobiographical; Biographical; Photographs; Family Members; Friends and Acquaintances; and Personal Affairs. The Personal Affairs Series is further subdivided into categories indicative of their contents: appointment calendars; art and moving sales; banking and finance records; consumer complaints; investments; medical; real estate; religion; sponsored children and charity work; sports; traffic accidents; violations and litigation; and travel. Within the Family Members Series, Wojciechowska's close relationships with her brother Chris and her adopted daughter Leonora are especially well-documented. Material related to her investigation of a friend's murder (Arline Escobar) is included in the Friends and Acquaintances Series. The Personal Affairs Series documents her many disagreements with and lawsuits against doctors, businesses, and law enforcement agencies. Many of her unpublished books and essays have autobiographical content (especially "The Strength Within" in Series V). Also, her personal religious activities (Series F) and her actions as a religious activist (Series JJ) are closely interrelated.

Wojciechowska's Professional Papers include the following series: Appearances and Fan Mail; Literary Awards, Honors and Competitions; Critical Reviews about Wojciechowska's Works; Business Ventures; Writing Workshops, Classes and Competitions; and Professional Correspondence.

The literary awards material does not include any Newbery Medal items. The writing workshops include assignments, quizzes and research material which provide some insights into Wojciechowska's approach to her craft. Researchers should also refer to the Published Essays (Series Q) and Unpublished Essays (Series Z), wherein Wojciechowska discusses her insights and experiences as an author. Also, much of her opposition to censorship (Series DD) stemmed from a belief that she was a victim of religious discrimination.

The Professional Correspondence Series is further divided into a number of categories: de Grummond and Kerlan Collections; literary agents and attorneys; book publishers; illustrators; film, television and video producers and production companies; entertainers; periodicals and press agencies; and miscellaneous. Correspondence related to a single title has been retained with the title. The material in this series either fails to specify a title, or relates to multiple subjects. Primarily, these are queries, but this series also include royalty statements and other correspondence related to published works.

Note to researchers: Within the container list, both published and unpublished works have been written in bold text. In addition, the titles of published books have been capitalized.

In Published Works, the collection holds materials for books, a television program, and a theatrical work. The eight book titles represented are arranged alphabetically, with the material for each title placed in the probable order in which it was created. For The Bridge to the Other Side, an adaptation of Monika Kotowska's Most Na Druga Strone (1970), the collection holds correspondence between the two, written after publication of the book. The Hollywood Kid (1966) is the story of an aloof and bitter fifteen-year-old who tries to choose between leaving home in order to discover himself or staying with his recently widowed mother, a famous movie actress. For this title the collection holds three typescripts. How God Got Christian Into Trouble is documented with agent and publisher correspondence, contracts, and royalty statements. This children's book tells of what happens when Christian befriends God, who has incarnated himself as a young boy. For The Life and Death of a Brave Bull the collection holds one typescript. This title is the story of the confrontation between a matador and a bull which climaxes a lifetime of courage and pride for both.

The People in His Life is an adult novel about the last days of a fictional author who closely resembles Ernest Hemingway. For this title, the collection contains correspondence, royalty statements, contracts, reviews and publicity material. Some of the material for this title discusses Wojciechowska's brief friendship with Hemingway, based on a mutual appreciation of bullfighting. Shadow of a Bull (1964), for which Wojciechowska won the Newbery Medal, is the story of Manolo Olivar who has to make a decision: to follow in his famous father's shadow and become a bullfighter, or to follow his heart and become a doctor. For this book, the collection holds two typescripts, some proofs, royalty statements and correspondence, and reviews.

The collection holds some correspondence relating to a filmstrip, "Stoned". Also included in the published works is the play, "A Mad Tea Party" (1986). The play was adapted from the Lewis Carroll book and apparently was produced by a school or other children's group. For this title the collection holds a typescript and a dummy of a program. The remaining published works include several articles written by Wojciechowska about various topics, including sports, fashion, writing and beauty; and book and film reviews also written by Wojciechowska.

Material related to the "Dreams of" Series and Pebble Beach Press has been divided into the following categories: The "Dreams of" Series; Published Books in the "Dreams of" Series; Unpublished Books in the "Dreams of" Series; and Books by Other Authors. The first category includes correspondence, reviews and publicity material which don't pertain to a specific title within the series. There is substantial material relating to each of the three published books in the series. For Dreams of Golf, the collection contains correspondence, reviews, publicity material, numerous typescripts, a proof, a dummy, and the typescript of a proposed adaptation for young children. This book describes the efforts of a young Japanese boy to win his father's approval through the game they both love. For Dreams of Soccer, the collection holds correspondence, publicity material, research notes, numerous typescripts, and a proof. The book recounts the history of a Scottish-American family and their love of soccer. Dreams of the Super Bowl describes the friendship and cooperation between two football teammates as they strive to reach the goal indicated by the title. For this book, the collection contains correspondence, typescripts, and a proof. There is material in the collection for three unpublished books in the "Dreams of" series, as well as typescripts of two books by Chris Wojciechowski.

Unpublished and Unidentified Works include notes, typescripts, correspondence and related items, for books, short stories, theatrical works, television programs and films, articles and essays, a board game and a commercial. Of the 28 unpublished book titles held in the collection, "Overkill" by Maia Wojciechowska and her brother, Chris Wojciechowski, is the most monumental. It is a moral tale about Arthur Black, Alison White, and an international incident which eventually leads to the Supreme Court. Research, the sometimes volatile correspondence between the writers, and numerous chapter revisions, amounting to about 1.25 cubic feet, show the development of this novel. The fiction titles include juvenile and adult works, and often reflect Wojciechowska's moral, religious and political views. Two of the books for children, "Angels" and "Raptured" deal with the subject of angels. Another young adult book, "Our Rotten Years," tells the story of an unorthodox teacher and her profound effect on a group of teenagers. One of the children's book scripts, "The Crazy Old Lady and Me" is translated into Spanish. Adult fiction includes "Teeing Off," the story of a woman in crisis who plays an imaginary round of golf through the back yards of a housing development. "Grand Illusions (Debunked)," is a political treatise on the myths and delusions which corrupt the American electorate. "The Strength Within" devotes a chapter to each of the values which the author feels is essential for a righteous, fulfilled existence. Other nonfiction titles reflect Wojciechowska's interest in golf, fitness, and movie production.

Among the four unpublished theatrical works, the best represented is "The Phantom Empress" by Maia Wojciechowska and Selden Rodman, which is a musical based on the lives of Maximillian and Carlotta of Mexico. The collection also includes several proposals for television programs and films and many articles and essays that were not published, as well as a board game and golf commercial. The articles cover many topics, including sports, writing and health issues. Wojciechowska's numerous essays on political topics have been filed with her other Activist Papers. In particular, she wrote frequently on Abortion (Series BB), Censorship (Series DD), Education (Series FF), U.S. Public Affairs (Series II), and Religion (Series JJ).

Wojciechowska's Activist Papers have been divided into eight categories: Arts, Culture and Media, Abortion, Censorship, Child Abuse and Child Custody, Education, Poland, Public Affairs - Laguna Beach, California, Public Affairs - United States, Religion, and Miscellaneous Activist Papers. Each division generally contains correspondence by Wojciechowska on behalf of her cause, responses, letters to editors, clippings related to the subject, articles and essays and notes. The material in the collection (c. 8 cubic feet) which relates to local activism in Mahwah, New Jersey, has been placed at the end of the collection, but hasn't been arranged or described.

Miscellaneous Papers include those which do not fit readily into other categories, generally because their purpose could not be determined, or because their contents cut across a number of categories. These materials include a bound journal, "Maia's Book," containing notes on a diversity of subjects from Polish films to How God Got Christian into Trouble. Another bound journal contains notes on personal finances, as well as notes for the article, "Anatomy of a Condemnation." Also included are typescripts and illustrations for a children's book by Louise Vitellaro and Charles Clayton Tidd, "The Blind Woman of Tee," which Wojciechowska appears to have represented to an agent for them. A second typescript, "I Don't Know If I Should," is for a picture book by David N. Collins and illustrated by Oscar de Mejo. A third typescript is an article, "Learning to Love Reading," by Noel Janis, which acknowledges Wojciechowska's influence.
