Marian M. Schoolland was an elementary school teacher who began writing in 1938 as she went to graduate school. For more than 40 years she translated, edited and wrote books, most of which were published by Eerdmans, for instance Leading Little Ones to God (1962); Banner of Truth (1970); Marian’s Book of Bible Stories and Marian’s Favorite Bible Stories. Her other well-known works include the Patsy books and the Tomboy Janie series. She also wrote for The Banner and other periodicals. She was the daughter of Klaas Schoolland (1851-1938), who was a professor in the ‘literary department’ of the institution that began by training ministers for Christian Reformed pulpits and eventually grew into what is now Calvin College. Marian Schoolland was a graduate of Calvin (1934), and in 1980 received their Distinguished Alumni Award. She was a member of the Christian Reformed Church of North America. The collection includes a series of 23 articles written for the column, The Young Look, for The Banner in 1974, concerning the history of Dutch settlers to the United States starting in 1847. (S)
