|Muriel Wylie Blanchet
Comments in Muriel Blanchet's earlier biographies suggest that her work as a freelance author began well before 1950. However, Cathy Converse was unable to find Blanchet's rumoured contribution to the Atlantic Monthly. Nor is there evidence that she published anything in Blackwood's Magazine before the appearance of A Curve in Time as a book. "A Whale Named Henry" was written in the 1930s for Muriel Blanchet's five children.
