Betty MacDonald

a.k.a. Anne Elizabeth Campbell (Nee) Bard, Betty Bard MacDonald

Author Code: ABBM

Born: Mar. 26, 1908 - Boulder, Colorado, USA

Died: Feb. 7, 1958 - Seattle, Washington, USA

Educated at Roosevelt High School in Seattle, she married Robert Heskett when she was 20. The marriage only lasted four years and Betty took various jobs thereafter to support her two daughters. In 1937, she was treated for tuberculosis and spent over a year in a Seattle sanitarium. In 1942, she married Donald C. MacDonald and they moved to Vashon Island in Puget Sound, Washington. In 1945, she published The Egg and I, a huge best-seller based on her brief life on a chicken farm with her first husband. The book introduced the characters of Ma and Pa Kettle - played by Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride in the numerous films that followed. Many of MacDonald's works were semi-autobiographical in nature. She also published very popular children's books, starting in 1947 with Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle. She developed uterine cancer and died at the very early age of 49. Her other works include The Plague and I (1948), Anybody Can Do Anything (1950), Nancy and Plum (1952), Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Farm (1954), Onions in the Stew (1955) and her posthumously published autobiography Who Me? (1959).
