Other Info: Barbara Elleman is the creator and former editor-in-chief of the American Library Association’s Book List Magazine, has been a friend of the Museum since before its opening in 2002, and has served as a Trustee since 2004. Together with her husband, Don, Barbara has donated to the Museum a 700-volume treasure trove of books on children’s literature, The Barbara Elleman Research Library (BERL), which was amassed over the course of Barbara’s thirty year association with the field. The collection includes subjects ranging from the history of children's books (Jane Bingham's Fifteen Centuries of Children's Literature), to explorations of the art of the picture book (Perry Nodelman's Words about Pictures and Henry Pitz's Illustrating Children's Books), and biographies on A.A. Milne, Laurent deBrunhoff, William Steig, Jessie Wilcox Smith, Ezra Jack Keats, Wanda Gág, Leonard Everett Fisher, and Virginia Lee Burton. The non-circulating research library has been cataloged and is available by appointment to scholars visiting the Museum.
