This is the lifetime collection of Dr. Clarabel Tanner (1918-2013), a distinguished TWU alumna who had a long and vital career as a school librarian. This distinguished collection includes 11 original works by winners of the prestigious Caldecott award for the single most distinguished contribution to children's book illustration in a given year, as well as eight pieces by Caldecott award runner up illustrators, and an original 19th century woodcut by the master himself, Randolph Caldecott. The pieces are on display in the children's collection, located on the Garden Level of the Blagg-Huey Library.
