- Mary Carolyn Dobbs (1911-2011) was a teacher and pioneer in the field of special education, responsible for several significant improvements in classrooms for children with disabilities and their teachers at the state and national levels. She corresponded with Pearl S. Buck, who shared Dobbs' concern for children with disabilities, and whose own daughter, Carol Buck (1920-1992), had been diagnosed with an intellectual disability. Dobbs visited Buck in Perkasie, Bucks County, Pennsylvania in 1951. The Pearl S. Buck letters to Mary Carolyn Dobbs, 1951-1965, consist of fifteen signed letters from Pearl S. Buck to Carolyn Dobbs and a typed draft of an article published in the California mental health newsletter
The Pointer with handwritten corrections by Pearl S. Buck.
