Biographical Sketch of Elizabeth Coatsworth.

Elizabeth Jane Coatsworth was born May 31, 1893 in Buffalo, New York. She graduated from Vassar College in 1915, and received a M.A. from Columbia University in 1916. During her childhood and after college, she traveled all over the world. She was in England at the outbreak of World War I, and in 1916-1918 spent thirteen months traveling throughout the Orient. Her love of travel and first-hand knowledge of many different countries would play a role in the creation of many of her books and poems.

Coatsworth began writing poetry in 1914 and published many poems in magazines, and in 1923 published her first book Fox Footprints. In 1927, she published The Cat and the Captain; it was later revised and re-published in 1974. In 1930, she published The Cat Who Went to Heaven, a story based on a Japanese legend that lyrically relates the mercy and compassion of the Buddha towards all creatures. The book, which won the Newbery Award in 1931, demonstrates her appreciation of Oriental culture and her love of nature and animals; the latter appears in many of her books.

For the next forty-five years, Coatsworth continued to write for juveniles and adults, poetry and fiction, as well as some non-fiction. She wrote both historical and contemporary fiction for children and showed a special understanding of the problems a lonely or "different" child can experience in trying to "cope" with life's challenges. She was noted for her ability to be both "storyteller and lyricist" and for her "detailed description and vivid sensory impressions." Her historical fiction has also been cited by critics for its accuracy and strong sense of time and place. She wrote to "instruct" children, but as critics note she was never "pedantic" or lost her respect for them and the value of "commonsense."

Elizabeth Coatsworth received the 1975 Kerlan Award for her contribution to children's literature. She died in Nobleboro, Maine on August 31, 1986.


Collection Scope and Content Note

Elizabeth Jane Coatsworth's papers reflect her work as an author of children's books. The collection contains production material for fifty-three titles, including her autobiography, published between 1930 and 1976. The collection also contains production material for stories and poems published in magazines, as well as unpublished stories, poems, and books. Production material includes holographs, typescripts and carbon typescripts, notes and research material, proofs and dummies. The collection contains a substantial amount of business and personal correspondence to and from Coatsworth, with some to her husband, the author Henry Beston. The collection also contains journals kept by Coatsworth during her travels (many containing poems later published), as well as journals containing stories and other material, scrapbooks, photograph albums, and miscellaneous material.
