Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

Betty MacDonald's very witty sister Alison Bard Burnett shared her unique memories in these treasure interviews with Betty MacDonald fan club founder Wolfgang Hampel.

I especially adore the wonderful apple story describing Mike Gordon as unique personality.

Did you know that Wenatchee is the Apple Capital of the World?

 

Bildergebnis für wenatchee



Since its earliest settlement, Wenatchee has identified itself with apples. This trend continues today, with apples appearing in the names of everything from appliance and machine shops to square dance clubs, churches and the town’s semi-pro baseball team. Second graders in the Wenatchee School District study an apple unit every year. Washington State’s Apple Blossom Festival has been held in Wenatchee each spring since 1920. Images of apples are found on signs, billboards, letterhead and logos throughout the Wenatchee area as evidence that residents remain proud of this heritage. 

Greetings,

Astrid

Betty MacDonald, Maurice Sendak and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's farm

mrs. piggle-wiggle's farm_english_1954_hardcover_bookjacket_FRONT

 

Betty MacDonald fan club fans,



I got  many very interesting items, documents and letters.

One of my very close friends produced a Maurice Sendak biography for TV.

I had the opportunity to meet Maurice Sendak during this production and we also talked about Betty MacDonald and his illustrations for Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's farm. 

Imagine, my copy of  Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's farm includes an original  Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle illustration by Maurice Sendak.

I'm going to support Betty MacDonald fan club letter collection.

Yours, 

Andrea

Betty MacDonald, Wolfgang Hampel and the kindest man on earth

Image result for Betty MacDonald fan clubnancy and plum_english_1980_paperback_FRONT

Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

Jerry Keil, husband of Betty MacDonald's daughter Joan MacDonald Keil passed away 18 years ago. He died of cancer at the age of 77 on April 22, 2000.

Jerry became an FBI agent based in Seattle in 1947. 

Betty MacDonald describes this in her book 'Onions in the Stew'.

According to Wolfgang Hampel, author of the Betty MacDonald Biography and interviewer of Betty MacDonald's family and friends, published on CD and DVD by Betty MacDonald Fan Club, Jerry Keil was the kindest man on earth. Jerry was unique and answered every letter and many questions from Betty MacDonald fans all over the world.

Jerry Keil became Joan MacDonald Keil's adviser as she lobbied publishers to reprint the out-of-print "Nancy and Plum." 

 

nancy and plum_english_1980_paperback_FRONT

When publishers rejected the reissue, Jerry and Joan printed and distributed the book themselves.

They included some beautiful family photos in this very special edition of Nancy and Plum. 


Both did a great work to bring Nancy and Plum back to the audience.


Greetings,

Lisa


 

Jerry Keil Obituary 


Jerry' Keil used skills honed in FBI career to prompte book

By Carole Beers

Seattle Times staff reporter

Girard "Jerry" Keil won awards as a special-agent supervisor in the FBI's Seattle office.

He taught marksmanship and defensive tactics and later did similar work for Paccar, setting up a security plan for the firm's offices nationwide.

It seemed like an about-face when he retired in 1982 to help his wife, Joan MacDonald Keil, republish her mother Betty MacDonald's "Nancy and Plum" book about a pair of orphaned sisters.

But the task drew on skills he sharpened in the FBI: talking to a variety of people and getting them to do the right thing.

Mr. Keil died Saturday (April 22) of cancer. He was 77.

"He was meticulous, and liked to talk and be in charge," said his son Timothy Keil of Whidbey Island. "He enjoyed that discipline. He kept busy promoting the books and took it upon himself to answer every letter from every kid who enjoyed the books."

First he became Joan MacDonald Keil's adviser as she lobbied publishers to reprint the out-of-print "Nancy and Plum." When publishers rejected the reissue, Mr. Keil and his wife, whom he wed 50 years ago, printed and distributed the book themselves.

Later they saw MacDonald's "The Egg and I" book reissued.

Born in Royal Oak, Mich., he graduated from high school in Decatur, Mich. He was class president and played basketball and tennis.

He also was class president at James Milligan University in Decatur, where he earned a degree in business administration before becoming a navigator in the Army Air Forces during World War II.

He became an FBI agent based in Seattle in 1947. He also helped found the Northwest Forum business club.

From 1978 to 1982 he directed security for Paccar.

He then became vice president of Joan Keil Enterprises, his wife's book-promotion firm.

One of his recent joys was sitting on a bench in Kirkland's Marina Park and chatting with people. His family will dedicate a new bench to him and to his daughter Rebecca Keil, who died in 1998.

Surviving besides his wife and son are children Toby Keil of Thousand Oaks, Calif., and Heidi Richards of Bellevue; brothers Otto Keil of Pennsylvania and Edwin Keil of Spokane; and seven grandchildren.

Services will be at 5 p.m. Saturday at First Congregational Church, 752 108th Ave. N.E., Bellevue.

Remembrances may go to Evergreen Hospice and Health Care Foundation, 12910 Totem Lake Blvd. N.E., Suite 200, Kirkland, WA 98034.
