Guess Who

This is Edward Stratemeyer who wrote the Hardy Boys in 1926 and Nancy Drew : Nancy Drew would be a lady of 98 years old this year.
Her character first appeared in 1930 and in 1959 the books were revised. All three woman on the Supreme Court, Sandra Day O'Connor age 80, Ruth Ginsburg age 77 and Sonia Sotomayor age 55 cite Nancy Drew as an early influence.

This was a 1986 book

This is the new look

What will she look like on her 100th Anniversary ? I am sure dear Mr. Stratemeyer would be in shock

My mom and I enjoyed all these books and these days my 10 yr old great niece is a big Nancy Drew fan. Have a nice Mother's Day Patsy.

Hi Patsy,

The post is so interesting. The Nancy Drew books were my favorite when I was in Junior High. I still enjoy mysteries. Have a wonderful Mother's Day.

Have a happy Mother's Day weekend.
