Easter Bunny, c. 1915

Growing up in an itinerant family, Kreigh Collins attended numerous schools in his childhood. This led to a degree of spottiness as far as his education was concerned, yet his artistic abilities would flourish. An only child, his mother saved much of his childhood schoolwork, which is fortunate due to the family’s frequent moves. This trove is in a special collection of the Grand Rapids Public Library, where Collins spent hundreds of hours doing research.

Happy Easter! Look for a special announcement next week.
