Biographical Sketch

Alice McLerran was born June 24, 1933, in West Point, New York. As a child in an army family she shifted her home every year or two as a child, living in many parts of the world. Eventually she earned a doctorate in Anthropology at the U. of Calif. Later she married a physicist, and her married life has also been spent in different locations, though all within the continental United States. She now considers writing to be her permanent vocation. She is perhaps best known as an author of picture books. She has had one of her books published in Russia -- at the time, probably the only American children's author to have that distinction.
