Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum:


'Eighty years ago this month Laura Ingalls Wilder made a quick trip to Springfield, Missouri to have this photograph taken, part of a triptych. The reason? She was invited to Detroit to appear at a prestigious Book Fair, where her book ON THE BANKS OF PLUM CREEK debuted. Harper & Brothers urged her to have a fresh photo made for publicity, and this was the pose she chose. It became her standard publicity photo for the next two decades. The photo, sometimes personally signed, became part of many American classrooms, since so many children requested her picture. Right along with images of George and Abe--all three of them February babies. It is amazing to reflect on the permanent and pervasive quality of Laura Ingalls Wilder's life and art during this, her 150th birthday year. And the celebration is not yet over. Stay tuned for another major event!'

Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum shared Author William Anderson's post:

More on the Wilder 150th this month at Rocky Ridge Farm: Prof. David Scrivner, recently seen fiddling on CBS Sunday Morning, again expertly played the original Pa Ingalls violin for the crowd gathered on the lawn of the Wilder house. This is always an awesome, even emotional, interlude for visitors to the site....the "huge" museum parking lot was filled to capacity; shuttles were offered from Mansfield to Rocky Ridge. Countless volunteers helped make this event happen. As Wilder said: "If enough people think of a thing and work hard enough at it, it's pretty nearly bound to happen, wind and weather permitting."

Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum:

"Where were Laura and Almanzo Wilder 80 years ago this week? In Detroit, Michigan, at Hudson's, "the world's tallest department store." They rode from Mansfield to the Motor City in their 1936 Del Monte beige Chrysler car. Laura was a speaker at Hudson's Book Fair, where ON THE BANKS OF PLUM CREEK was debuted. In her speech, Laura explained her writer's purpose: "I wanted the children now...to know what it is that made America as they know it. Then I thought of writing the story of my childhood...and eight volume historical novel." "
