Ruth Krauss Papers

Identifier: 1994-0007

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.


  • Creation: undated, 1929-1992


The collection is open and available for research.


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.

Language of Materials



The Ruth Krauss Papers contain documents and artwork created by Ruth Krauss in her work as a children's author and poet. The collection also includes materials related to the publication of Krauss's books, such as galleys, illustrations, brochures, posters, and audio-visual materials. The collection contains some documents and artwork created by David Leisk (Crockett Johnson), Krauss's husband. Separated materials include monographs, serials, and audio-visual materials.


The collection was received in considerable disarray. Related materials were not packaged together, and unrelated materials were often intermixed in large-size envelopes and folders. These envelopes and folders were occasionally mislabeled, but sometimes provide the only clues about the items' identity and date. Where these envelopes and folders were too worn, fragile, or acidic to be preserved, they have been photocopied.

Materials were subsequently sorted by type into series, and subdivided by title and/or date for ease of research. The collection often contained multiple photocopies of the same original; only one of these copies was retained.
