Mollee Coppel Kruger (b. 1929) is a Maryland poet, journalist, playwright, and humorist. She attended the University of Maryland, College Park, from 1946 to 1950 and received her degree in Education. From 1967 to 1983, she authored a weekly poetry column, entitled Unholy Writ, which was syndicated nationally in several Jewish periodicals. Kruger has also published six poetry collections under the Maryben Books imprint. Kruger's papers include correspondence, drafts, notes, scrapbooks, photographs, newspaper and magazine clippings, published materials, video tapes, and memorabilia. Notable correspondents in the collection include Cynthia Ozick and Joseph Brodsky. Of particular interest are Kruger's bi-weekly letters home during her time as a student at the University of Maryland.
