Marguerite deAngeli Collection
Guide and Digital Holdings

The Marguerite deAngeli Collection is composed of a variety of materials donated by Mrs. deAngeli and her family, as well as other donors, to the Lapeer District Library in 1985.   Items include: published and unpublished artwork, book manuscripts, research notes, personal correspondences and family photographs. Because this is a limited collection, keyword searching may not produce desired results.  Below is a list of terms that will guide you through the collection and will allow you to view it in a variety of groupings.  We believe that you will learn much about Marguerite deAngeli, her works, her life and her contribution to American children's literature and that you will come to love her as we do
