Abstract/Description: "The purpose of this paper is to give a brief sketch of the life of Elizabeth Yates, bringing out those incidents and experiences that affected her professional career; to summarize the contemporary criticism of her work as to her ability as an author for children and young people; and to assemble a bibliography of her contributions to literature. Miss Yates has written thirty books for children and young people, all of which are listed in the bibliography at the end of the paper. As the books cover such a wide age range in appeal and vocabulary, it was decided to limit the study to those books intended for ages ten through eighteeen, omitting those publications for children of the primary grades and those for adults"--Introduction.
