Eleanor Butler Cameron

Eleanor [Butler] Cameron (23 Mar 1912-11 Oct 1996) American advertising research librarian who wrote the beloved "Mushroom Planet" series of Juveniles, which quite tickled my imagination as a boy. These included "Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet" (Boston: Little Brown, 1954), "Stowaway to the Mushroom Planet" (Boston: Little Brown, 1956), "Mr.Bass' Planetoid" (Boston: Little Brown, 1958), "Mystery for Mr.Bass" (Boston: Little Brown, 1960), "Time and Mr.Bass" (Boston: Little Brown, 1967) TIME TRAVEL. Eleanor Butler Cameron was a Librarian in Los Angeles who, during her 84 years, wrote 17 delightfil children's books, one of which won a National Book Award in 1974: "The Court of the Stone Children." Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba (site of the 1994 World Science Fiction Convention) she did not start writing until begged to do so by her two sons, who wanted "space stories with magic in them." Before her 17 juveniles, she had published one adult mainstream novel about a librarian, "The Unheard Music", in 1950, which the Los Angeles Times called "a generally fine and perceptive story... a warm and understanding first novel." Eleanor Butler Cameron was educated at UCLA and the Art Center School of Los Angeles, then worked at the L.A. library for some years beginning in 1930. She moved to research librarianship for various Southern California companies, including advertising agencies. Besides her 17 childrens books and one adult novel, she also published two collections of literary criticism (focussing on children's literature). One of these books, "The Seed and the Vision", said that a good children's book must first of all be a good book in general, i.e. with solid logic, believable characters, and imaginative use of language, in order to make children "literate in a way that means reading will affect their lives, will give them a view of the human condition they would never have without it, that will become a companion to them all the rest of their days." She was a National Book Award runner-up in 1976 for "To the Green Mountains", and won the Kerlan Award in 1985 for her body of work. Eleanor Butler Cameron alos lectured for the Library of Congress, often, and at many locations, to an appreciative audience of adults and children.

Your humble webmaster's mother learned to read Spanish primarily to read this great masterpiece of world literature. An elderly country gentleman of La Mancha reads so many chivalric romances that he becomes insane, believes them to be tru, and goes forth into the world as a knight-errant to right wrongs and defend the oppressed. Today one might read this as a warning to obsessed science fiction fans to, in the words of a famous William Shatner skit on Saturday Night Live "Get a Life!" Since knight errants cannot do their thing without a lady-love, he chooses a local peasant girl he knew and dubs her Dulcinea. After his first sortie, wherein he's knighted, he convinces a good-natured but ignorant middle-aged local to be his sidekick, or esquire. Off they go, through one adventure after another, which Don Quixote sees in delsional forms: a windmill as a giant, inns as castles, galley slaves as oppressed gentlemen. His buddy Sancho Panza sees things as they are, but both suffer terribly, returning home depressed and damaged. A pseudo-Quixote novel was published in the next decade, and this goaded Miguel de Cervantes to write his own genuine sequel, which is even better than the first volume. Wonderful chapters cover his dream in the cave of Montesinos, the puppet shows of Maese Pedro, adventures at the Duke's castle, scenes with Robin Hood Guianrt, and the final defeat. When Quixote dies, Sancho Panza has become a beloved figure himself, so that the reader can hardly stand to leave the world of Quixote, which may have started as a satire on the fantasy genre of the day, but grew into a panoramic masterpiece of 17th century Spanish life. The mere entertainment became what many consider the first modern novel, which set a standard for self-aware fantasy (at one point Quixote encounters a character pretending to be Quixote) which endures in the best work of today.

"Julie grew up on Air Force bases, her family moving with each transfer from Ontario to Prince Edward Island and finally to Nova Scotia. When her father retired, the family moved to Ontario, settling in what was a rural setting near the shores of Lake Ontario and is now Mississauga. A thorough gypsy, Julie pursued her interest in biology at the Universities of Waterloo, Saskatoon, and Queen's (Kingston) accompanied by her former chemistry partner and now husband Roger.
