Ruth Stiles Gannett
Gannett (1923 - ) earned a chemistry degree in 1944 and worked at Boston General Hospital and the Massachusetts Readiation Laboratory. At about the same time she began writing My Father's Dragon but did not complete it until 1946. The book was followed by two sequels, Elmer and the Dragon and The Dragons of Blueland which have been in print continuously for more than 70 years, translated into 14 languages, with a Netflix animated film to be released in 2021. Gannett's stepmother, Ruth Chrisman Gannett, illustrated all three Dragon books.
