Biography

Ruth Krauss was born in 1901 in  Baltimore, Maryland. She attended several universities and institutes. She received her bachelor's degree from the  Parsons School of Fine and Applied Arts. In 1940, she married  David Leisk (known as  Crockett Johnson). From 1944 until 1979, Krauss published many children's works, some of which she illustrated herself. Other children's books were collaborations with her husband, usually employing Krauss's text and Johnson's illustrations. Krauss's career as a writer of adult poetry began in the late 1950s, with publications spanning 1965-1977. Many of these adult poems were experimental theatrical poems, many of which were performed in New York, New Haven, and Boston. Krauss died in 1993.

Scope and Contents

The Ruth Krauss Papers date from approximately 1938 through the early 1990s and include materials pertaining to Krauss's writing for children and for adults, from the earliest stages to final, published works. The collection also includes correspondence and financial records, and some material related to the work of Krauss's husband David Leisk (  Crockett Johnson). Most materials date from the 1950s and 1960s.

The collection, especially in the Children's Literature series, is incomplete; the papers contain little or no materials pertaining to some of Krauss's works, especially some of the earlier ones.

Series VIII: Poetry undated, 1958-1988 

General note

[Poetry is filed alphabetically by title. Those poems published in one of Ruth Krauss's books are filed alphabetically under the book in which they were first published, with the exceptions of "This Breast," "If Only," and "When I Walk I Change the Earth," which were published later as stand-alone books.

Titles are problematic in Krauss's poetry. Many poems are untitled. Untitled poems, including the numerous different poems named "Song" or "Poem," are generally filed under "Untitled and unidentified poems" if they were not published in any of Krauss's books. Untitled poems found in books are alphabetized under the first line. Krauss gives different names to the same poem, or, occasionally, the same name to different poems.]
