Biographical Sketch

Emma Lillian Brock was born in June 11, 1886 in Fort Shaw, Montana. As a child, she moved to a number of places in the United States, and developed a love of travel and seeing new places. She graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1908, and studies at the Minneapolis School of Art from 1910-1914, and later at the Art Student's League in New York City from 1917-1918 and 1921-1928. Emma Brock worked as a librarian for a number of years at the Minneapolis and New York public libraries, and in the 1920s began illustrating and writing children's books. She illustrated her first books Memoirs of a London Doll, by Richard Henry Horne, and The Islands of Magic: Legends, Folk and Fairy Tales from the Azores in 1922, and published her own book, The Runaway Sardine, in 1929. Throughout her long and prolific career, Emma Brock illustrated and wrote dozens of children's books, including picture books and stories for older children. Many of her works are humerous stories and she also wrote a number of stories featuring animals and their human companions.

Emma Brock continued writing and illustrating through the 1960s, and died on August 17, 1974.
