The Secret of the Old Clock, the first Nancy Drew mystery
The Secret of the Old Clock, the first Nancy Drew mystery

Nancy Drew is an amateur sleuth, the fictional heroine of a popular mystery series, primarily aimed at the children-young adult audience, and written under the collective pseudonym "Carolyn Keene". The series was created and outlined in detail in 1930 by Edward Stratemeyer, founder of the Stratemeyer Syndicate, with the first manuscripts written by Mildred A. Wirt Benson and edited by Stratemeyer's daughter Harriet Stratemeyer Adams. The Stratemeyer Syndicate had a strict non-disclosure contract; writers such as Mildred Benson produced books based upon outlines provided by the Syndicate. As a ghostwriter, Benson was the second most prolific writer (after Stratemeyer-Adams herself), producing the twenty-three of the first thirty volumes. Nancy Drew is a feature film released on June 15, 2007 in the U.S., loosely based on the popular series of mystery novels about the titular teen detective. ...

Series history

The Stratemeyer Syndicate was known for publishing book series using one invented author's name for all books, no matter who wrote them. Members of the Stratemeyer family did some outlining, title development, editing, and some writing of books. In the case of Nancy Drew, the pen name Carolyn Keene was chosen. Edward Stratemeyer wrote outlines for the first four stories in the series, and read the first three drafts, but died before the books were published. His daughter Harriet Stratemeyer Adams succeeded him as the head of the syndicate, outlined volumes, wrote a number of volumes and oversaw the substantial revisions of the earlier titles starting in the 1950s. She was assisted by her sister Edna Stratemeyer (later Squire) for several years, before Edna retired from active participation in the Syndicate after her marriage.

More than 200 million Nancy Drew books have been sold worldwide. Many people collect the series, which has gone through several formats over the years. The books have been in print continuously since 1930. Starting in the 1960s, however, many of the early titles were revised or changed completely to eliminate outdated references such as "roadsters", "running boards", "rumble seats", and "electric torch" and to make Nancy and her friends more identifiable with contemporary readers. All titles currently in print are known as "revised text", except the original series reprints by Applewood Books. 1950 Jaguar XK120 Roadster This article is about the car body style. ... This 1931 Ford Model A sport roadster features a rumble seat A rumble seat, dicky seat, dickie seat or dickey seat is an upholstered exterior seat which hinges or otherwise opens out from the rear deck of a pre-World War II automobile, and seats one or more passengers. ...


The original books have 25 chapters while the revised editions have only 20. Only volumes 1 through 34 were printed in the original format. Volumes 35 and up never had the 25-chapter texts. Volumes 35 and up each had the 20-chapter text in their very first printings and still are printed with the original 20 chapter texts to this day.


The earliest familiar format was trademarked in 1932, deep sky blue books with orange lettering, and an orange silhouette of Nancy on the cover, with orange endpaper illustrations and dust jackets featuring full-color artwork. Only volumes 1 through 13 were printed with four glossy illustrations. Volumes 14 through 17 were printed with one glossy illustration during the late 1930s and early 1940s, as were the original 13 books. Volumes 18 and up never had glossy illustrations; these volumes had only the plain paper frontispiece illustration, which was introduced in all of the books in 1943. In architecture, a frontispiece constitutes the elements that frame and decorate the main, or front, door to a building; especially when the main entrance is the chief face of the building, rather than being kept behind columns or a portico. ...


Thus, any existing copy of a Nancy Drew book with 25 chapters and four glossy illustrations is rare or scarce, depending upon its condition and the presence of a dust jacket. These volumes are considered valuable by the collectors market and are often highly sought.


Starting in 1979, the original series was extended with new volumes published in paperback, and in the late 1980s a new spin-off series The Nancy Drew Files was created for Simon & Schuster, Inc., starting with Secrets Can Kill. In recent years, the spinoff series Nancy Drew Notebooks and Nancy Drew: On Campus have been published. The Nancy Drew Girl Detective series is the newest version of tales about the titian-haired sleuth.

Character evolution of Nancy Drew

Original Nancy, 1930 to 1940

Nancy Drew was depicted as an independent-minded teenager, who has already completed her high school education. She is sixteen at the beginning of the series, but gradually aged to eighteen by the mid 1940s (this was changed when the original books were later revised; she is always eighteen), by then necessary to graduate from school in many states. Apparently affluent, she maintains an active social, volunteer, and sleuthing schedule, as well as participating in athletics and the arts, but is never shown as working for a living or acquiring job skills. Nancy is also unhindered by the Great Depression and World War II. For other uses, see The Great Depression (disambiguation). ...

Nancy lives with her father, attorney Carson Drew. In volume one of the original series, it is stated that Nancy's mother died when Nancy was three years old; volume four expands upon the ideal by indicating she has managed a servant and the household for her father since that time. This fact was changed in later revisions. Carson Drew is a character in the popular Nancy Drew mystery series. ...


The Drews' housekeeper, Hannah Gruen, is in charge of cooking delicious meals, cleaning, and all sorts of errands. In the early stories, "Hannah," is depicted as the servant of employer Nancy, and follows directives down to uniform appearance, menus and groceries from her young supervisor. Hannah is excluded from discussion of mysteries, and does not take meals with the family. This character gradually changed, as the role of the middle-class and their servants did in reality. By the mid 1940s, she is more a member of the family, and less formal with Nancy, often attempting to restrict her independence. She lives with the Drews in the family's three-story brick house in the fictional town of River Heights. River Heights may refer to: River Heights, a community in Utah River Heights, a provincial electoral division in the Canadian province of Manitoba This is a disambiguation page — a navigational aid which lists other pages that might otherwise share the same title. ...


The evolution of the series and, as adjusted in later revisions of the early stories, Hannah assumes more of a warm, maternal role in Nancy's life and, along with the character of Nancy's cosmopolitan New York relative, Aunt Eloise (introduced in 1952) helps provide a rounded sense of family. In The Whispering Statue in 1937, a dog named Togo was also integrated into the Drew home, adding spirit and flavor to several of Nancy's adventures. This healthy presentation of a loving, but non-traditional family structure was years ahead of its time and may have helped the series maintain a fresh, contemporary accessibility among young fans while other idealized series from the same era fell out of favor. The Whispering Statue is volume 14 in the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories Series. ...


In The Clue of the Whistling Bagpipes, published in 1964, Nancy further explores her mother's genealogy; her mother, whose maiden name was Austin, was descended from the Scottish nobility. Nancy travels to Scotland, where she meets her great-grandmother, Lady Douglas, the widow of a former member of the House of Lords. Lady Douglas is the daughter of a member of Clan Cameron.

Nancy's car

In the first few books Nancy drives a blue roadster. During the war years, Nancy's car is only vaguely referenced as a coupe, but post-war, is again a blue open car or convertible. Later on in the series it changes to a yellow convertible, gradually she again drives a blue convertible and rents other colors of cars when hers is unavailable. In the Nancy Drew Files she drives a blue Mustang.


Nancy's friends

Many friends frequently visit the Drew household. The first of these, Helen Corning, appears in the earliest novels before her marriage (after which point she is not seen in Nancy's life). In later editions Nancy is accompanied by her two close friends, George Fayne and Bess Marvin. George (short for Georgia in the revised editions, named for her grandfather in the original editions) Fayne and Bess (short for Elizabeth) Marvin are cousins who have opposite personalities and appearance. George, tall and slim, with short black hair, makes a point of being a tomboy while Bess, slightly plump with luxurious set hair, but not clearly described as blonde until 1936, has the most girly appearance and girly attitude of the threesome. Early George Fayne characterizations depict her as bold, slightly clumsy, blunt, and untowardly forward, resulting in the nickname, "George the Terrible", from series fans. Bess, on the other hand, tries to be proper, and is also easily frightened — once wrecking a car simply because she saw something unusual, and drove off the road into a tree.

Helen returns briefly in the original volumes Nancy's Mysterious Letter and The Password to Larkspur Lane, which were ghostwritten by Walter Karig. In these volumes, her personality is more like George Fayne's. Helen disappeared when Mildred Benson resumed ghostwriting, but returned from Europe (a common plot device for absent characters in series books) for one final appearance and plot device in The Clue in the Jewel Box, introducing Nancy to European acquaintances. Helen Corning was mentioned in one Nancy Drew Girl Detective #12 Stop the Clock.

Boyfriend Ned Nickerson is introduced in volume seven, The Clue in the Diary and appears in nearly every story. He frequently appears at Nancy's mystery sites across the United States, despite the fact that he is a student at Emerson University in the next town. He is so enamored by Nancy that he frequently allows her to control the relationship, which gets him into trouble several times. He often changes their plans together to pursue her sleuthing. Ned is always there for Nancy but knows mysteries are very important priority in her life so he remains very patient and aids her in solving mysteries.

The Clue in the Diary is a 1932 novel featuring Nancy Drew, a fictional character who has appeared in many other novels. ...


Nancy's character

Nancy is blue-eyed and laid-back. She was originally a blonde, and illustrators often drew Bess with hair coloring somewhat darker blonde or light brown, when the three girls appeared together. Nancy's modern hair color is described variously as "red-gold" and "titian", rather than the less glamorous "red." This change was actually due to a printer's error on the original jacket of a book; missing ink layers including yellow left Nancy's hair red. But on most covers she is shown as a blonde, redhead or strawberry blonde. Woman with red hair Man with red hair Red hair (also referred to as auburn, ginger, ranga or titian) varies from a deep orange-red through burnt orange to bright copper. ...


She becomes involved in mysteries without always being a welcome presence. She always carries a flashlight; occasionally drove her blue convertible at high speeds to escape her villians, but usually drove the legal speed limit. breaks and enters; trespasses; sneaks about; opens locked doors, lockers, chests, drawers, etc. She is more courageous than her friends and undaunted by the money or time spent in investigating a clue. Hannah voices her concerns about Nancy's behavior, but is clearly the Drews' employee in these early tales; her opinion is often discredited.


Her early style is in the vein of a sophisticated young girl with immaculately curled hair, pearls, high heels, and elegant dresses. This is largely the work of commercial artist Russell H. Tandy, the first illustrator for the series. He was a fashion artist and infused Nancy with a modern fashion sensibility. He painted the dust jackets and drew the inside sketches for volumes 1–10 and 12–26. He drew the inside sketches for The Clue of the Broken Locket, but not the cover. By the end of the 1930s, Nancy was dressing along the lines of a sophisticated young woman, with smart suits, matching hats, gloves, and handbags. A sample of Tandys work for the Nancy Drew series Russell H. Tandy (1893-?) was an American illustrator, best known for his cover art for early editions of the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys series. ... The Clue of the Broken Locket is the 11th book in the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories series. ...


1940-1950: Teen-aged Nancy

With the start of the 1940s, Nancy began to evolve into a less reckless, and also less obviously affluent, character with The Mystery at the Moss-Covered Mansion. Her fashion style becomes a bit more casual, and she no longer pursues angles that greatly endanger herself or her friends. Her car changes makes and models a few times, finally becoming a blue convertible in the post-World War II era. She pursues hobbies, particularly art and music, but also dancing, and various athletics, including sailing, swimming, skin-diving, tennis, and even horse back riding. Her age also gradually changes to eighteen. Other than some minor allusions in 1943's The Clue in the Jewel Box, the war rationing doesn't seem to affect River Heights, or Ned Nickerson.

Many of Nancy's mysteries in this era involve her application of knowledge gained from avid reading, or from consultation with teachers, professors, or other experts, and this is passed on to the readers, a trend which grows and continues to the end of the series. Nancy thus shows greater respect for authority figures, such as her father, the local police, and others willing to help with her investigations. In politics, authority generally refers to the ability to make laws, independent of the power to enforce them, or the ability to permit something. ...


Although still illustrated as very mature during the war years, this style gives way to a more casual, stereotypical teen appearance by the end of the decade, partially due to a switch in illustrators. Book covers began to replace the flapper style favored on early jackets with a conservative, more classic appearance. Following the post-war trend for young people to have their own, casual style, instead of dressing the same as adults, Nancy becomes less constrained. Sweater or blouse and skirt ensembles, as well as a pageboy hairstyle, are introduced in 1948, and continue with new artist Bill Gillies, who updated 10 covers and illustrated three new jackets from 1950 to 1952. Gillies invented the modern-era trademark as a spine symbol: Nancy in side profile with a quizzing glass. Benson wrote her last volume for the series, The Clue of the Velvet Mask, in 1953. The pageboy (or page boy) is a hairstyle named after a drawing of a woman dressed as an English page boy. ...

1950s-1970s: Revisionist Nancy

During the 1950s, Harriet Stratemeyer Adams took on responsibility for writing the books and also revised the earlier volumes to speed pacing and remove regional and racist references. ...


Internal illustrations were returned to the books beginning in 1954. In 1957, most Stratemeyer Syndicate books dropped from 200 to 180 pages in length, including the rewrites. Plot wise, stories begin to involve more travel away from River Heights. Nancy's hometown is now more metropolitan and less rural; fairly close to Chicago, and not too far from New York City and other metropolitan destinations on the East Coast of the United States. River Heights may refer to: River Heights, a community in Utah River Heights, a provincial electoral division in the Canadian province of Manitoba This is a disambiguation page — a navigational aid which lists other pages that might otherwise share the same title. ... For other uses, see Chicago (disambiguation). ... New York, New York and NYC redirect here. ... Regional definitions vary from source to source. ...


In the revisions, Nancy is eighteen, not sixteen; her mother died when she was age three, not ten. Hannah Gruen is a motherly figure who helped raise Nancy, and at times restricts her rash actions. Aunt Eloise Drew, a smart New Yorker who was Nancy's aunt, is frequently either chaperone or hostess to Nancy's New York adventures. Nancy's dog, Togo, still exists, but now occasionally helps her in her cases. Eloise Drew is a character in the popular Nancy Drew mystery series. ...


Other characters are developed as well. George Fayne develops into a more personable, but still masculine girl, while Bess becomes obsessed with boys and food. George and Bess are given their own respective boyfriends early in the 1950s, Burt Eddleton and Dave Evans, both chums of Nancy's boyfriend Ned Nickerson. The original stories began to be updated in 1959, Helen Corning became an older friend of Nancy's, and is bolder than the original Helen, serving as actual sleuthing sidekick in the first four volumes. The stage is also set to explain her departure from regular involvement with Nancy -- Helen becomes engaged; and in her last appearance before she is married, she is planning her wedding while she helps Nancy sleuth. She and her husband Jim Archer appear in some later volumes, and revised versions of several stories as well.


Rudy Nappi, artist from 1953 to 1979, illustrates a more average teenager, but still in very preppy, conservative clothing. Nancy's hair changes to strawberry-blonde, reddish-blonde or titian by the end of the decade. The change, due to a printing ink error, was so favorable that it was adopted in the text. Mrs. Adams Dickinson herself even explained regular changes in Nancy's hair color as possibly induced by the young sleuth's beautician. In 1962, all Grosset and Dunlap books become "picture covers", to reduce costs. Several of the 1940s cover illustrations were updated by Rudy Nappi for this change, but contained the old story. The books themselves were gradually updated, in some cases only sharing a title with the original, with completely new plots and settings. For example, the original Lilac Inn really was only a setting for a crime. In the 1961 revision, it is the setting for almost all of the story. Settings in the series involve travel to several different regions in the United States, and also international destinations, including France, Peru, Scotland, Hong Kong and Africa.


None of the stories in hardcover issue today as published by Grosset and Dunlap are older than 1957. In 1979, two million copies of Nancy Drew books were sold.[1]


The Quest for Carolyn Keene

Due to confusion and difficulties in protecting the secrets of series production, ghostwriters for the Stratemeyer Syndicate signed away all rights to authorship or future royalties, and all correspondence was handled through Harriet S. Adams' office. The syndicate's process for creating the Nancy Drew books consisted of first creating a detailed outline, with all elements of plot; then the drafting of a manuscript that was occasionally revised or rewritten; and finally editing. While Edward Stratemeyer and his daughters Harriet and Edna wrote all outlines for the Nancy Drew books except one (The Clue of the Velvet Mask, outlined by Andrew Svenson), a number of other writers wrote the manuscripts. Among these were Mildred A. Wirt Benson née Augustine, Walter Karig, George Waller, Jr., Margaret Scherf, Wilhelmina Rankin, Alma Sasse, Charles Strong, and Patricia Doll. Edward Stratemeyer edited the first three volumes and Harriet Stratemeyer all subsequent volumes with the exception of The Haunted Showboat and The Secret of the Golden Pavilion, which were edited by Jane Dunn and Jane Sanderson.

Legal disputes

Walter Karig tried to claim rights with the Library of Congress in 1933, something that angered the Syndicate. Construction of the Thomas Jefferson Building, from July 8, 1888 to May 15, 1894. ...


In 1980, dissatisfied with the lack of creative control at Grosset and the lack of publicity for the Hardy Boys' 50th anniversary in 1977, Adams switched publishers to Simon and Schuster, which would also make the American versions available in mass-market paperback. Grosset and Dunlap filed suit against the Syndicate and the new publishers, claiming some control over publishing as their firm provided illustrations. Jean-François Millet Le Semeur (The Sower) Simon & Schuster logo, circa 1961. ...


Although Adams had written many of the titles after 1953, and edited others, she claimed to be the author of all of the early titles. In fact she had rewritten the older titles, but not been the original author. When Adams filed a countersuit, claiming the case was in poor taste and frivolous, Mildred Benson was called to testify about her work for the Syndicate. Benson's role in writing the manuscripts of early titles was revealed in court with extensive documentation, contradicting Adams' claims to authorship. The court ruled that Grosset had the rights to publish the original series as they were in print in 1980, but did not own characters or trademarks. Further, any new publishers chosen by Adams were completely in their right to print original titles. Mildred Wirt Benson (born 1905, died 2002), writing under Stratemeyer Syndicate pen name Carolyn Keene from 1929 to 1947, was a contributor to 20 of the first, originally published, Nancy Drew mysteries. ...


Adams was rumored to be embarrassed about the negative publicity of the trial and many adult fans and collectors considered her integrity irreparably compromised after the trial. Following her death, her partners continued, finally selling the entire Syndicate to Simon and Schuster. An acknowledgment to Mildred Benson was added to Grosset copyright pages; they currently print the original 56 hardcovers and recently began publishing out-of-print titles originally issued by Simon and Schuster. The original Nancy Drew series added the last new title in 2003.

Continued by Simon & Schuster

In 1979, the Nancy Drew books began to be published by Simon & Schuster in paperback format. Though formatted differently from the original 56-volume series which continued under Grosset & Dunlap's control, these new books retained the general essence of the series style and were published under the 'Nancy Drew Mystery Stories' banner. By 2006, volumes 57-64 had been adapted for the original series format and released in yellow spine, 'flashlight' hardback editions. These books feature increasingly contemporary cover illustrations and some books even have multiple versions of the cover art.

Nancy Drew Notebooks

The Nancy Drew Notebooks series told stories aimed at younger readers, starring 8-year-old Nancy and her friends in the third grade. The books are illustrated by periodic black and white drawings. The "notebook" in the series title refers to the "blue notebook in which [Nancy] keeps track of her mysteries and writes down what she learns" - the stories ended on a moral message telling the reader what Nancy had learned. The cover layout changed and evolved throughout the series, which was initially published by the Minstrel imprint, and later switched to the Aladdin one. The series ended with volume #69 in December 2005, and was relaunched (from volume 1) as Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew.[2]

Special editions and reprints

The Reader's Club or Cameo editions

Nancy Drew was issued as a book club feature, the Nancy Drew Reader's Club, from 1959 to early 1961. Several volumes, nos. 30–35, were issued with new illustrations by artist Polly Bolian. The volumes matched Grosset's other Doubleday Book Club publication, Young Library. A full color jacket illustration was repeated as the frontispiece, and double-page pen and ink drawings highlighted the texts. References or notices for other volumes, and volume numbering, was removed from the text and the jackets. The series saw six more volumes, 36, 27–29, and revised 1–3 added in 1960. Plans for additional titles were abandoned after two years and the series ceased publication in early 1961. The volumes are highly desired by today's collectors due to their original artwork, and the scarcity of their dust jackets, made on inferior, lightweight matte paper instead of heavier gauge glossy paper used on other editions.


Regular Book Club Editions

Nancy Drew was issued in the yellow-spine picture format, as a book club, in 1962. The back covers were solid yellow, and spines feature no volume numbers. "Book Club Edition" appears on the title page. The entire series in print was not issued in this format; only volumes 1–32 were issued. In the 1970s, a book club offer was available directly from the publisher, but these volumes are exactly the same as regularly purchased volumes. They were simply mailed on schedule to the subscriber.


Twin Thriller

Nancy Drew had two-volumes-in-one published in the 1970s. These are collected for their uniqueness; evidence indicates, however, that libraries and schools seemed to be targeted for the marketing of these books. Covers featured geometric clover designs on lilac grey, with a vignette from one of the two volumes' original cover art. All of the volumes are sequential, i.e., 1–2, 3–4, except for the final two issued. Volumes 17 and 24 appear together as one, as they were not revised until the mid 1970s.


Applewood Books reprints

Applewood Books began reprinting facsimile editions of the early Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys in 1991. The books feature the original dust jacket art, original illustrations (although not scattered through the text), original texts, and duplication binding of the early Nancy Drew format. Many of the volumes contain forewords from adult author fans of the series. Applewood issued original series titles up to volume 21, The Secret in the Old Attic, but sales, initially good, tapered off with later volumes and plans to extend the line were discontinued in 2007. Several of the published reprints remained available through the end of 2007 when Applewood's license expired.

Literarture®'s Nancy Drew dust jacket collection

In late 2006, Literarture®, licensed by publisher Simon and Schuster, began releasing prints of classic Nancy Drew dust jacket artwork by Russell Tandy, Bill Gillies, and Rudy Nappi derived from pristine vintage art elements and, in some cases, the original paintings themselves. Through website polls, visitors can determine which artist's work is selected to represent different volumes in the collection. The jackets are commercially printed and can either be framed or wrapped comfortably around most series book formats. All 56 original Grosset & Dunlap titles will be released as dust jackets for the first time, but the books themselves are not included. About two dozen or so have been released to date, with more slated for 2008.


Nancy Drew originals

In early 2007, Grosset and Dunlap began retailing special volumes of Nancy Drew mysteries with original artwork but revised content in different product assortments and packaging.
