"Mary Poppins and other outcasts," a brief article (no author, but perhaps Travers herself? see next file, "Correspondence", item 5), published in the Christian Science Monitor, October 24, 1980. The article discusses the banning of Mary Poppins by the San Francisco Public Library on account of its treatment of minorities; it goes on to condemn censorship of children's books more generally.
