Marjorie Henderson Buell

“Little Lulu Lives,” a tiny lobby exhibit at the Radcliffe Institute’s Schlesinger Library which I wrote about here, honors the work of a pioneering female cartoonist. Marjorie Henderson Buell created Little Lulu, a spunky rascally cartoon girl who was a precursor to the more curmudgeonly cartoon star Nancy. (Buell, who died in 1993, was also the mother of Harvard lit professor Lawrence Buell, who with a brother donated the items seen here to the library.)

“Little Lulu Lives,” Schlesinger Library, Harvard University, 10 Garden St., Cambridge, Oct. 9, 2007, to March 28, 2008.
