Description
The Madeline Tabler Collection documents the creative process behind writing children's and young adult literature.  The collection dates from 1963-1975.  The collection consists primarily of unpublished manuscripts and published articles.  It has accordingly been divided into two series, Manuscripts and Articles.
Background
Madeline Ann Balch McDougal was born in 1922. Her mother, Catherine Ann Balch, died in childbirth when Madeline was 5, and she grew up using her mother's maiden name. She graduated both from Michigan State College with a bachelor's degree in Chemistry, and also from the School of Nursing at Sparrow Hospital.
