Curious George Comes to Hattiesburg
The Life and Work of H. A. and Margret Rey

 
When the de Grummond Children's Literature Collection was founded in 1966, the Reys were among its earliest contributors. Featured on the cover of the exhibit catalog is a drawing of George bringing his books and pictures to Hattiesburg. H. A. drew this illustration on the letter to Lena Y. de Grummond telling her of his intention to send the Collection some of his original work. More materials were added over the years and in 1996, upon the death of Margret, the remaining literary estate was given to the Collection.

Publication of the exhibit catalog, from which this virtual exhibit is drawn, was made possible by grants from the Hattiesburg Arts Council and The University of Southern Mississippi Foundation.
