    About "Phyllis Crawford"

      • Phyllis Crawford

        In the early days of the 19th century when the Doaks were piloting their storeboat down the Ohio river in search of elbowroom, Phyllis Crawford s ancestors were pushing their way westward from the Carolinas to Arkansas Born and brought up in Little Rock, Miss Crawford has done her pioneering back to the Atlantic coast via Randolph Macon Woman s College in Lynchburg, Va and the University of Illinois Library School at Urbana She reached New York in 1924 and has lived there ever since with the exception of three years in Santa Fe, N M Writing was a sideline while editorial work on reference catalogs and book lists for libraries constituted the order of the day It was during this period that Miss Crawford gained a wide acquaintance with the available literature for children Two years of research in American backgrounds followed, and out of the combination of experiences came Miss Crawford s decision to write stories for children about the people who actually built this country without consciousness that they were playing a part in history So with obvious impracticality Miss Crawford resigned her job and set herself to her task Hello, the Boat , her first full length novel, was the immediate result By products are the author s fatal susceptibility to American folk arts and antiques and a keen desire to explore all the corners of this country, both justifiable in the light of their research value.

    1. This 1942 novel may be my favorite post-1920 (or so) work of college fiction.The author was a Randolph Macon Women's College graduate. An alumna enthusiastically recommended the book to me, and says that the college in the book is identical to the RMWC she knew in every respect except that the building names were changed. Apparently the college even used the campus map from the book's endpapers as their own official map for some time.Unlike the vast majority of mid-20th century college girl stor [...]


    2. Written by a RMWC alumna about RMWC but she calls it Langhorne-Evans. But they have a odd tree and even post. The only thing that would have made this better that the main characters of the story were odds not even.It was written in the 1940s so you have to keep that in mind. Not the best book every but nostalgia counts for something! :)
