Ellery Yale Wood, Class of 1952, was a major collector of children’s books, particularly 19th and early 20th century books written for young women readers. She donated her collection to Bryn Mawr as a bequest, and the books are now beginning to arrive at Bryn Mawr from her home in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, England.
