The Ellery Yale Wood Collection of Children’s Books and Young Adult Literature

 Girl’s Realm Annual

Ellery Yale Wood (BMC 1952), a long-time resident of Wisbech, England, collected books written for children and young adults from the middle of the eighteenth century until the end of the twentieth. When she died in the Spring of 2013, she left this remarkable collection of approximately 12,000 books to Bryn Mawr. Student workers in the Special Collections Department have started this summer on the massive project of unboxing, cleaning, sorting, and inventorying the books, under the direction of Curator of Rare Books & Manuscripts Marianne Hansen and Rare Books Cataloguer Patrick Crowley. Rayna Andrews (BMC 2011) has also been hired as the project coordinator to manage the day-to-day work and help with setting priorities for cataloging the books.
