The Foundation for The Gator Nation An Equal Opportunity Institution College of Liberal Arts & Sciences 4008 Turlington Hall Department of English PO Box 117310 Gainesville, FL 32611 352-392-6650 352 392 0860 Fax October 13, 2014 Dear colleagues, My colleague Suzan Alteri has asked me to write in support of her application for a Carnegie-Whitney Grant, and I am extremel y pleased to do so. Several years ago, Suzan assumed the position of Curator of our Bald win Library of Hist orical Children's Literature (after a competitive national se arch), and has been developing exciting new research programs and outreach initiatives. I've worked with Suzan on a number of projects, most recently, a UF Libraries mini -grant initiative to kick start a Baldwin Scholars Council, which was enormously pr oductive, involving cu rators and scholars from a number of other inst itutions. Right now, Suzan is co-teaching a graduate seminar on the children's literature archive based on the Baldwin collection. She quickly made herself indispensable not only because she knows the collection well, but because she's knows so much about the history of children's literature and pr int culture. It is a joy as well as a professional boon to collaborate with Suzan. I know, too, that Suzan is actively involved in a number of other re search efforts, many if not all interdisciplinary, and that I'm only seeing a small part of her activity. I understand I am to verify he r ability to carry out the proj ect. I can do th is with great confidence. She is supremely qualified to undertake the project she outlines in her application, which strikes me as exciting a nd timely. Recently, Victor ianist scholar Alan Rauch visited our collection and gave a terr ific presentation on nineteenth-century biology and science books by women authors. We have a large collection in the Baldwin, and no one's bothered to study most of these materials. The ability to do so will change our understanding of how women aut hors created a literatu re for children and young adults, broadly understood, and how they thus participated not on ly in the literary world but in the project of making educated citizens. Suzan has been looking into this topic further, drawing on her own training in rare books and gender studies, and she has already identified a substan tial archive with which to work. She proposes a digital annotated bibliography, with full-text links, to women-authored materials published in both the eighteenth and ninete enth century. Many of these books focus on natural history and the life sciences, but they extend to othe r topics that we might not now think of as "science" more properly, such as psyc hology, philosophy, and religion. Not a few of these materials negotiate the science-religi on relationship in interesting ways. This bibliography will be of great interest to anyone working in literary studies and interdisciplinary childhood studies, especiall y, but also to resear chers of social and cultural history. Many of these texts are illu strated, as well, sometimes by the author, and that's another fascinating dimension. In short, the bibliography could be a very


The Foundation for The Gator Nation An Equal Opportunity Institution significant research tool for researcher s across many fields. I expect important scholarship will come of it. Please let me know if you need more info rmation from me, and thank you for your consideration of this compelling proposal. Sincerely, Kenneth Kidd Professor and Chair


The Foundation for The Gator Nation An Equal Opportunity Institution George A. Smathers Libraries 208 Smathers Library Department of Special and Area Studies Collections PO Box 117005 Chair, Elizabeth Haven Hawley, Ph.D. Gainesville, FL 32611-7005 352-273-2765 352-846-2746 Fax www.uflib.ufl.edu/spec/ November 6, 2014 Carnegie-Whitney Grant Program American Library Association 50 E. Huron Street Chicago, IL 60611 Dear Carnegie-Whitney Grant Reviewers, I write to offer my strongest support as a hist orian of science and technology to commend the “Woman Authored Science Books for Children 1790 -1890: An Annotated Bibliography” project for grant funding through the Carnegie-Whitney Found ation. The project will establish an important resource for educators and scholars working to understand the historical role of women in science and cultural factors shaping female participatio n in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields. I wish this type of resour ce had been available last year when I taught the course “Gender, Women and Science” at the University of Minnesota. In childhood, girls engage as enthusiastically in science activities as boys. Yet by undergraduate study in college, female participation in physi cs, math and computer science notably drops, with biology the chief field in which women outnumber men. The paring of qualified women from STEM fields becomes even greater with advanced degree s and has been called a “leady pipeline.” We have come to understand that even when a pipeline of potential female scientists is generated in early childhood, cultural factors quite apart from individual intelligence play a significant role in reducing women’s long-term presence in STEM fields. While completing my Ph.D. in the History and Sociology of Technology and Science at the Geor gia Institute of Technology, I worked with the Center for the Study of Women, Science, and Te chnology on examining these issues. My attention to the field over more than a decade convinces me that Suzan Alteri’s project will make an impact on how we study the relationship of cu lture, science, and gender over time. The proposed project will make available primary sour ces about the historical practices in children’s literature and science education t hat have encouraged and sustained fema le participation in certain fields (such as botany and biology) while di scouraging interest in others. This annotated bibliography identifies resources that can be acce ssed by educators at all levels, as well as by scholars ranging from educational curr icula to the history of science. This past year, I left my position as visiting fa culty in the History of Science and Technology Program at the University of Minnesota to chair the Special and Area Studies Collections Department (SASC) at the University of Florida. I was drawn to Univ ersity of Florida because of the interdisciplinary configuration of the departmen t, the commitment of the Smathers Libaries to digitization and access, and the exceptional library faculty of SASC. Each of these elements is a strength of Suzan Alteri’s proposal and supports her proposal for specificity and quality of content, the ability of the project to sup port work across many fields, and public access to historical materials not held in such quantity or breadth by other institutions. I have great confidence in her abilities as a bib liographer and project manager who can complete this project successfully and with the highest qua lity. I met Suzan Alteri in 2012 while serving as an instructor for descriptive bibli ography students at Rare Book School at University of Virginia. I taught her personally in a Rare Book School intensive summer course on the topic. She was brilliant, quite frankly, and able to grasp comple x bibliographical points quickly and fully.


The Foundation for The Gator Nation An Equal Opportunity Institution She excelled at mastering new concepts and fine points of bibliographical analysis, as well as placing specific works within historical context. In conversations during the course and since then, she has shown a deep knowledge about children’s liter ature to a range of topics, with remarkable facility in working across disciplines. She has a very good track record for planning, implementing and concluding projects with quality deliverables. By the time I accepted the posit ion at University of Florida this year, she already had formed a strong interest in women in science and established a network of scholars to engage in the examination of gender, science and children’s literature in the Baldwin Library. Before I began discussing the project with her, she already had read and analyzed key publications on this topic; she has evidenced an understanding of key issues and coordinated her work with that of gender and science/technology scholars quite well. As a schola r myself in this field, I am quite confident that she will produce high-quality results and complete a project that will deepen our ability to understand historical aspects of women’s participation in STEM. With funding from the Carnegie-Whitney Foundat ion, the project “Woman Authored Science Books for Children 1790-1890: An Annotated Bibliography ” will provide a premier resource for better understanding women’s participation in STEM fields through historical children’s literature. I offer my strongest recommendation in favor of this proposed project. Sincerely, Elizabeth Haven Hawley
