The Lois Lenski Collection is arranged into two series by format: Manuscripts and Dolls and Toys. The Manuscripts series contains eighteen sub-series by general category beginning with Lenski's authored works and then sub-series containing correspondence, publishing and promotional materials, and secondary sources.

Materials within each sub-series are arranged chronologically, and any undated material is arranged alphabetically. Illustrations are located at the end of the appropriate sub-series.

The Dolls and Toys series is roughly arranged by grouping dolls, doll accessories, and toys into separate boxes. This portion of the collection has been been digitized, and may be viewed on Milner Library's website through this link: Lois Lenski Doll Collection.

Collection Historical Note

Lois Lenski, 1893-1974, was a professional illustrator and author of books for children. Lenski wrote and illustrated nearly 100 of her books, and illustrated approximately fifty books for other authors. Lenski's books were written for very young children as well as older children and young adults. Lenski also published poetry, songs, and plays for children.

Lenski was born 14 October 1893 in Springfield, Ohio. Lenski graduated in 1915 from Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in education and a teaching certificate, but chose to move to New York City to study at the Art Students League rather than teaching. Lenski illustrated works for other authors for some time, but eventually wrote and published her first book, Skipping Village, in 1927.

Lenski continued to write and illustrate books for children and young adults throughout her life. Lenski married muralist and illustrator Arthur Sinclair Covey, 1877-1960. Lenski died in September of 1974 at her home in Florida.
