Biographical Sketch

(Mary) Lee Kingman was born October 6, 1919, in Reading, Mass. She worked as a writer, editor, textile designer, and printer. She began writing for children when a friend asked her to do some short plays for Plays Magazine. These helped her get a job with Houghton Mifflin publishing, where she eventually became children's editor. She gets her background material mostly from her own surroundings, Cape Ann and its history.
