Biographical Sketch

Herbert Spencer Zim was born July 12, 1909 in New York City. He attended Columbia University and received a BA in 1933, his MA in 1934, and a Ph.D. in 1940. He taught science for many years in New York and later was a professor of education (science) at the University of Illinois at Urbana. Zim also developed science labs for elementary school students and would bring his keen interest in education to his books. In 1942 he published his first book for young readers, Mice, Men and Elephants. During his long and prolific career, he wrote dozens of books for children and young adults on a "variety of subjects ranging from sea shells to minerals to the function of the brain to national parks." Herbert Spencer Zim became well known for his "scientific books for children" that were "rich" in detail and "jam-packed with material for the interested reader." Herbert Spencer died on December 5, 1994 in Plantation Key, Florida.
