Martha Alexander

DATE OF BIRTH

1920-05-25

Martha Alexander says the character of Blackboard Bear was originally inspired by her four-year-old nephew, Christopher J., who had a rich creative ability to entertain himself. "Blackboard Bear emerged one night, onto paper through my pencil, direct from the joy of recalling how Christopher acted out his exciting adventures. Now Christopher has two children of his own."
