Biographical detail hunting[edit]

Some results of hunting for more details:

  • Sisters of the Extreme: Women Writing on the Drug Experience, p. 62, (edited by Cynthia Palmer and Michael Horowitz) reprints the PSM article. It has a short introduction, noting that "Little is known about this author of two novels for juveniles, who appears to have been the first woman to publish a description of the effects of a psychedelic experience." (Google Books).
  •, the modern website of PSM, republishes the article but has no additional information.
  • The Online Books Page lists a novel, The Friendly Five, under this author's name.
  • Searching for The Friendly Five, bring up an identity on Worldcat and search results on the Internet Archive. Both show two children's novels and some articles in some domestic magazines.

Assuming that Sisters of the Extreme is correct, these are probably all the same author. No further biographical details appear to be available, however. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 17:21, 25 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
