Biography:

Pamela Lyndon Travers was born Helen Lyndon Goff on August 9, 1899 in Mayborough, Australia. She died in London on April 23, 1996 at age 96, having enchanted generations of readers with her tales of the prim, magical English nanny, Mary Poppins, whose person was based on "all the nannies I had" as a child in Australia and the British Isles, and whose magic is rooted in myth and folklore as old as Earth and fresh as morning. Travers was awarded the Order of the British Empire in 1977 for her contributions to literature.
