To celebrate the 75th year of publishing of Nancy Drew books, The University of Maryland Libraries featured an exhibit on Girls’ Series books in the fall of 2005 in Special Collections and University Archives Exhibit Gallery. This exhibit highlights the girls’ series books in the Rose and Joseph Pagnani Collection. This collection was donated to the University of Maryland Libraries Special Collections in 1998 and contains over 300 books from 33 different girls’ series published from 1917 to 1980. Although Nancy Drew is the star of the exhibit, other girls’ series heroines such as Vicki Barr, Sue Barton, Judy Bolton, and the Dana Girls are also included.
