Happy Birthday to Carolyn Keene - Mildred Wirt Benson - Original Nancy Drew Ghostwriter

Born on July 10, 1905 in Ladora, IA, Mildred Augustine (later Mildred A. Wirt and Mildred Wirt Benson via two marriages), would grow up to be the first Carolyn Keene and breathe life into what would become a very popular and inspiring character, Nancy Drew.

Learn more about her, the 135 books she wrote and her adventuresome life at my website. I'm writing a biography about Mildred, and you can follow my progress there.
