AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED: To a Fan on "Toledo Blade" Letterhead. Carolyn Keene, Mildred Wirt Benson. AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED: To a Fan on "Toledo Blade" Letterhead.
Toledo, Ohio: March 5, 1998. On 5 3/4 x 7 1/4" notepaper with letterhead of the Editorial Department, "You write a fine letter .... It amazes me that Nancy Drew remains so popular. Sincerely, Mildred W. Benson (Carolyn Keene)." Benson, the acknowledged creator of Nancy Drew, wrote 23 of the first 30 books beginning in 1930 with THE SECRET OF THE OLD CLOCK. Much like the enduring character she brought life to, she was an adventurer who, in addition to being a writer and journalist, was a pilot and amateur archaeologist. Over the course of her career Benson wrote 112 additional children's books and numerous short stories, and her career in journalism spanned 58 years -- first at the Toledo Times and then at the Toledo Blade, where she continued to write a column until she passed away in 2002 at the age 96. Light creases, stray pen marks on verso, otherwise fine. Includes original mailing envelope addressed by Benson. Letters such as this one, wholly in Benson's own hand, are quite scarce. HANDWRITTEN LETTER FROM THE CREATOR OF NANCY DREW.
