Abstract

This dissertation traces the development of award winning children's author, Ann Nolan Clark, from her birth in Las Vegas, New Mexico Territory, through her early years of teaching and writing up to a period of re-dedication and commitment to her work, following the death of her son in World War II. The form of narrative biography was chosen for this work because Clark often used a variety of narrative techniques in the writing of historical profiles and biography.
