Unfortunately, space does not permit us to reproduce all of these excellent letters, but here is a sampling that captures the spirit of most. All the entries sent to us are being forwarded to Professor Carolyn Dyer Stewart at the University of Iowa, who is collecting them nationwide for an upcoming anthology of Nancy Drew essays. Have fun reading. We did. To this child of the 1950s, Nancy Drew was the feminine ideal. Not only did I love Nancy, I wanted to grow up to be her. Nancy, although just a teenager, was a force to be reckoned with. She pursued her goals with dogged determination. She thought nothing of searching a dark wood or spooky mansion by herself in the dead of a dark, stormy night or confronting a criminal once she had solved the case. Guided by her keen intelligence and intuitive powers, she shrewdly sized up the villain and dis-cerned his motives, often at the first meeting. Quick to sense an injustice, she altruistically offered her assistance to the hapless victims, never accepting any monetary reward for her efforts. To a young child soon to face all the uncertainties of adulthood, Nancy was a safe haven. In my child's mind it seemed that if I could be half as bright and half as brave, I could also inhabit her magical world. KATHLEEN PACIFICO Mount Arlington Nancy Drew is a delightful escape to a world of intrigue. In spite of numerous encounters with dangers, she always manages to get out of trouble and solve the mystery. When her spyglass peers through the cobwebs of suspense, one wonders who is more on the edge Nancy Drew or the reader!

For this reason, I feel she inspires young people and is an effective model in a world that needs to see, women excel.

It is my hope that these stories may continue to give pleasure and inspiration to others as they have done for me. EILEEN M.

I am a part of Nancy Drew, and she is a part of me. From the ages of 7 to 17, 1 spent more hours than I can count in the offices of Stratemeyer Syndicate in the Hale Building on Main Street in East Orange. I was visiting "Mrs. Adams," her two female secretaries, and one Mr. Swenson, who I learned in later years were Harriet S. Adams' assistant writers. In 1945, my best friend had met Mrs. Adams on Main Street, been invited to visit her offices, and brought me as her security.

Photographs were taken of us during our activities, and we always were welcome anytime we wanted to drop in. It wasn't until 1970 that I found out that my friend Mrs. Adams and Carolyn Keene were one and the same. That yellow legal pad and pencil I had seen her writing with all those years had much more meaning than I had ever imagined. By this time, my 12-year-old daughter had read many Nancy Drew mysteries without realizing her mother's influence was in many of those written words. My last visit to the office was in 1970 with my four children. Mrs. Adams had quite noticeably aged but was still writing shakily at her desk. She autographed books and gave them to my children. The many hours I had spent in there flashed through my mind that day, and only then did I realize that through the Bobbsey Twins and Nancy Drew stories I would be immortalized.

So begins my love affair with Nancy Drew and mystery stories. After finishing with mom's set, I headed to the library and finished off the rest. Many nights, long after bedtime, I huddled under the covers solving mysteries with Nancy and dreaming of roadsters, fame and fortune. Today books and mysteries are still a passion in my life. Thanks Nancy! MARILYN B. LUKACH Wharton Nancy Drew has affected me by making me read more. I had never been interested in reading. Now, all I read is the Nancy Drew series. When I read, I get so wrapped up in the book that I feel like I'm there. Sometimes I'll say to myself that IH read to the end of the chapter, but sometimes I finish the whole book. The author constantly keeps you reading chapters. When my class goes to the school library, all the girls sit at one table and talk about the books we just read. My friend and me sometimes borrow each other's Nancy Drew books. Even my teacher reads Nancy Drew books.
