Biographical Note

The International Wizard of Oz Club was founded in 1957 by Justin G. Schiller (1943-), now a dealer in historical children's literature. This club for collectors of the Oz books of L. Frank Baum publishes THE BAUM BUGLE and other occasional publications about Oz, sponsors conventions, and exchanges want lists among its members.

Scope and Contents

Correspondence received by Schiller, including many letters from Fred Meyer, officer of the club, Dick Martin, an Oz illustrator, Ruth Plumly Thompson, author of many later Oz stories, and several members of the Baum family.
