This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ruth Langland Holberg (1889-1984)

"For over fifty years, Ruth Langland Holberg delighted children with the books she wrote for them.  She was born on February 2, 1889, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Charles and Ida Langland.  She married commercial artist and illustrator, Richard A. Holberg, in 1912.  Living in Rockport, Massachusetts, the couple collaborated on a number of children's books, with Ruth Holberg writing and Richard Holberg illustrating.

After battling a serious illness for over two years, Richard Holberg died in 1942.  Ruth Holberg continued to write until her death at 95 on April 13, 1984.  In addition to her children's stories, Holberg also wrote poetry.  She was a regular contributor to the New York Sun and such magazines as Scribners, Saturday Review and Nation.  Holberg was also the author of two cookbooks."

She is listed in Who's Who of American Women (1975-1976); Dictionary of International Biography (1974); Contemporary Authors (1970), Who Was Who in American Art (1999), the Dictionary of British and American Writers (1974) and others.

The Ruth Langland Holberg Papers, consisting of diaries, journals, correspondence, manuscripts, published material, research material, financial information, photographs and several books, are housed at the University of Oregon Libraries Special Collections & University Archives.
