Scope and Content

The material in this collection consists of creative work by students of the Malcolm Price Laboratory School.  The work consists primarily of booklets containing writing and illustration by students in the lower grade levels.  Some of the work was created by a single student or a small group of students.  Other work was the work of an entire class.  The work of Mary Schneider Stichter's Unit II students is most strongly represented.  But there is a small number of other pieces as well. Pieces in Box 1 are mostly 8 1/2" X 11"; pieces in Boxes 2-3 are mostly 12" X 18".
