Scope and Content

Draft material and correspondence relating to unpublished translations by Leila Berg of works originating in various countries and languages. The series contains material relating to the translation from Norwegian of a musical play, 'The Singing Town', by Thorbjorn Egner; the translation from Hebrew of an Israeli picture book, 'Once Upon a Potty', by Alona Frankel; and the translation from German of various pieces of writing by Irmgard Keun.

Although Leila Berg was published as the translator of several titles, including Irmard Keun's novel 'Grown-Ups Don't Understand' [translated by Leila Berg and Ruth Baer (Max Parrish, 1955)], none of the titles which appear here in translation were published as translations by Berg.
