Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Betty MacDonald (March 26, 1908 - February 7, 1958) was an American author who specialized in humorous autobiographical tales, and is best known for her book The Egg and I. She also wrote the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle series of children's books. She is associated with the Pacific Northwest, especially Washington state. MacDonald was born Anne Elizabeth Campbell Bard in Boulder, Colorado. Her official birth date is given as March 26, 1908; however, public records indicate that she was actually born in 1907, on March 26. Her family moved from Butte, Montana, to the north slope of Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood in 1918, moving to the Laurelhurst neighborhood a year later and finally settling in the Roosevelt neighborhood in 1922, where she graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1924. MacDonald married Robert Eugene Heskett (1895-1951) in July 1927 when she was 20 years old[4] and he was 31, and the couple moved to a chicken farm in the Olympic Peninsula's Chimacum Valley, near Center a few miles south of the seaside community of Port Townsend.show more
