About the Oz Collection

A personal collection of books, Oziana, other Baum-related items collected by Laura Jane Musser and the Children's Literature Research Collections.

The collection primarily contains books by L. Frank Baum. In addition, it holds various Wizard of Oz related materials, including some original art by Bill Eubank for stories featured in Oz periodicals, typescripts for stories based on Wizard of Oz characters, sheet music, maps of Oz, a board game, coloring books, china plates, pins, and comic books. Miscellaneous Oz materials includes ephemera and newsletters from the International Wizard of Oz Club, activity books, calendars, and bibliographies, programs and materials from fan conventions, play programs, clippings, and miscellaneous Oz ephemera.

Archival materials  can be located in the collection guide for the Wizard of Oz Collection. Oz books can be found in the Library Catalog. Our location in the catalog is "TC Andersen Children's Lit." Around thirty books by L. Frank Baum (some written under the pen name Edith Van Dyne) have been digitized by the Libraries and are available to view on UMedia.
