The Nancy Patz Collection

The Nancy Patz Collection, donated to Goucher College in 2006, documents the professional life and art career of Baltimore-based, award-winning author and illustrator Nancy Patz. Since the 1978 publication of Pumpernickel Tickle and Mean Green Cheese, Patz has authored and/or illustrated ten children’s books and has become a highly sought-after speaker.

The collection includes manuscript drafts, source materials, preliminary studies and sketches, book dummies, artwork, galleys, page proofs, finished books, and related art produced after publication, such as post-production studies of specific book pages and fine art. Other records include correspondence,fan mail, publicity, reviews, magazine commissions, art assignments, promotional materials, scrapbooks, interviews, workshop materials, and lectures. 

The Nancy Patz Corner was established by an endowed gift from Nancy Patz to preserve and make available these original resources and to support programming, exhibits, teaching, and research using the collection.
