[Description and date of item], [Box and folder number], Frederick R. Gardner collection of Robert Lawson, 1900-1983, Free Library of Philadelphia, Rare Book Department.

Robert Lawson was born in New York City on October 4, 1892, and spent his early years in Montclair, New Jersey. Lawson attended the New York School of Fine and Applied Arts (which today is Parsons The New School for Design) from 1911-1914, then served in France as a camouflage artist during World War I. After the war, Lawson returned to New York to work as a freelance illustrator for Designer, Harper’s Weekly, Vogue, and other publications. In New York he met fellow artist and illustrator Marie Abrams and they married in 1922, moving to Westport, Connecticut a year later. To pay off their house they designed a new greeting card each day for three years, until the Great Depression forced them to sell the house and return to New York to find work.

In addition to his commercial work designing greeting cards and advertising, Lawson illustrated his first children’s book, The Wonderful Adventures of Little Prince Toofat (serialized 1921-1922 in Delineator and published in 1922), although he was apparently displeased with the results and never included the work in his records or library. A gap of eight years followed the publication of Little Prince Toofat, during which Lawson concentrated on his commercial work before returning to children’s book illustration in 1930. Around the same time he began etching and proved skilled enough to receive the John Taylor Arms Prize from the Society of American Etchers in 1931.

Soon the Lawsons were able to return to Westport and Lawson began to focus almost exclusively on illustrating children’s books. In 1936 he achieved his greatest recognition with the art for The Story of Ferdinand, by Munro Leaf. Two years later came Mr. Popper’s Penguins, by Florence and Richard Atwater, and in 1939 Lawson branched out to authoring and illustrating his own children’s books. His first book, Ben and Me, began a thematic trend in Lawson’s works, telling the story of a famous historical figure through the first-person narrative of a close animal friend. Ben and Me told the story of Benjamin Franklin and his mouse, Amos. 1941 saw I Discover Columbus, in which the parrot Aurelius told of his voyage with Christopher Columbus, and in 1953 Scheherazade the horse carried Paul Revere on his famous ride in Mr. Revere and I. The final variation was 1956’s Captain Kidd’s Cat, introducing children to the famous Scottish pirate’s cat, McDermot.

Lawson received the Caldecott Medal in 1941 for the patriotic They Were Strong and Good, and twice received Caldecott Honors: one in 1938 for Four and Twenty Blackbirds: Nursery Rhymes of Yesterday Recalled for Children of Today (1937) and one the following year for Wee Gillis (1938), written by The Story of Ferdinand’s Munro Leaf. One of his most famous works, 1944’s Rabbit Hill, based on the Lawsons’ home of the same name in Westport, Connecticut, won the Newbery Medal in 1945, and he received a posthumous Newbery Honor in 1958 for his final book, 1957’s The Great Wheel. Lawson illustrated more than sixty books in his lifetime, writing or editing twenty, and many of his books remain popular and widely read today.

Something About the Author, vol. 100.

This collection contains the literary papers of author and illustrator Robert Lawson. Lawson’s illustrations make up the bulk of this collection. The materials were primarily collected and compiled by Fredrick R. Gardner, and the collection includes some of Gardner's materials relating to his collecting project. Art for forty-seven titles is represented in the collection, including Lawson's well-known illustrations for Mr. Popper’s Penguins (1938) and the original dummy for The Story of Ferdinand (1936). The collection dates between 1900 and 1983 and consists of more than 1,200 matted illustrations for published and unpublished works (primarily pen and ink, but also including etchings and works in graphite and watercolor), an audiotape, correspondence, clippings, drafts, photographs, promotional materials, slides, and typescripts. There is also a framed self-portrait in oil paint and a filmstrip of the Caldecott-winning They Were Strong and Good. Frederick R. Gardner also collected first editions for most of Robert Lawson's published books, including several that are inscribed by Lawson.

The papers of Robert Lawson include unpublished manuscript drafts, reviews and critical material on his life and work, a selection of his correspondence, and a number of his published articles and speeches, including his acceptance speech for the 1945 Newbery Award for Rabbit Hill. There is a small number of promotional items, largely related to The Story of Ferdinand and its 1938 film adaptation by the Walt Disney Company. The autobiographical material includes hundreds of photographs and slides taken by Robert Lawson and his wife, illustrator Marie Lawson, while on vacations and at their home “Rabbit Hill” (Westport, CT). There is a collection of publicity photographs of Robert Lawson and Marie Lawson, and photographs related to the publications of They Were Strong and Good and The Story of Ferdinand. Photographs for The Story of Ferdinand feature Lawson with the author, Munro Leaf, and their longtime editor, May Massee. The Lawsons also designed and produced Christmas cards which can be found along with Robert Lawson's sketchbooks from his World War I deployment in France and a small selection of Marie Lawson’s artwork.

The records of Frederick R. Gardner related to the collection include catalogs and records documenting his purchases and correspondence relating to Gardner's collecting project. There are a number of letters to the Lawsons' former neighbor, Margaret Otto, who served as executrix of Robert Lawson's estate and who donated a number of his etchings to the collection. Otto's sales ledger of Lawson material is also included. There is also an audiotape of a 1963 interview with Lawson's long-time editor May Massee, newspaper clippings (some regarding Gardner's career and some regarding Robert Lawson's), photographs Gardner took during a visit to Rabbit Hill after the Lawsons' deaths, and promotional materials produced by the Free Library of Philadelphia for the 1977 Lawson exhibit organized to celebrate Frederick R. Gardner's donation.
