There is an unfortunate amount of false information about Edward Stratemeyer, the Stratemeyer Syndicate, and Nancy Drew, both in print and online. As these legends are repeated, they take on a semblance of truth that is undeserved.
This piece, called “The Nancy Drew Mythtery Stories,” was made at the 2007 Nancy Drew Conference at Wilson College in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, and the Nancy Drew Sleuths convention in Pasadena, California, later in the same year. It also became the first chapter of Nancy Drew and Her Sister Sleuths (2008).
This version of the article includes dozens of illustrations of documents and books. The images were largely drawn from the computer slides prepared in 2007.
This is the first of many pages to be added to this site about Nancy Drew and the Stratemeyer Syndicate. We will announce new pages as they are added. Subscribe to our blog to be kept informed of changes to Stratemeyer.org and the research on Edward Stratemeyer.
