Betty MacDonald and Donald MacDonald

Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

speaking of special birthday anniversaries during March, what about Betty MacDonald's husband Donald MacDonald?

Donald Chauncey MacDonald was born Sept. 2, 1910, in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
He died in 1975 at the age of only 65 in Monterey.

I'm working on a story about Donald Chauncey MacDonald with many facts, information and photos for Betty MacDonald Newsletter April 2015.

Betty MacDonald Memorial Award Winner Wolfgang Hampel's wonderful Betty MacDonald interviews with Betty MacDonald's beloved sister Alison Bard Burnett and many other relatives and friends include the most interesting memories of Donald Chauncey MacDonald. 
I hope these interviews will be published soon.

Wolfgang Hampel's  Betty MacDonald documentary of Betty MacDonald's life in Boulder, Butte, Seattle, Laurelhurst, Chimacum, Vashon Island, Carmel and Carmel Valley is really fascinating.
My personal favourites are scenes of Betty's and Don's life in Carmel and Carmel Valley.

I hope that Betty MacDonald's filmed interview will be available soon. 

Wolfgang Hampel's satirical poems and stories are delightful and so very witty. 
It's a very good idea to offer a special CD and DVD of Wolfgang Hampel's outstanding work.

You'll adore Darsie Beck's beautifully written childhood memories of Vashon Island.

Take care,
