Nancy Drew Factoids

I found these interesting facts about one of my favorite series as a child:

  • Nancy Drew, teen amateur detective, is called Kitty in Sweden.
  • Nancy Drew was conceived by Edward Stratemeyer and written by serveral writers using the collective pseudonym, Carolyn Keene. Edward was also behind the Hardy Boys series and the Bobbsey Twins series which were also written using collective pseudonyms. Hardy Boys had the "writer" Franklyn W. Dixon and Bobbsey Twins had the "writer", Laura Lee Hope .
  • Mildred Wirt Benson, born Mildred Augustine, was the original writer of the series and she died in 2002.
  • Nancy Drew has a facebook page and so does Mildred Benson.
