E. B. White

(1970 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award)

The Laura Ingalls Wilder Award was first given to its namesake in 1954 by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association. The award, a bronze medal, honors an author or illustrator whose books, published in the United States, have made, over a period of years, a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children. Between 1960 and 1980, the Wilder Award was given every five years. From 1980 to 2001, it was awarded every three years. Beginning in 2001, it has been awarded every two years. The award information was retrieved from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award website. The call numbers for the books owned by the UMD library are provided after the citation.
