WINIFRED WORTH CLARK

Becky Clark did some digging and was able to come up with some juicy bits of information! It turns out that Winifred Worth was a pseudonym for Mrs. M. Skinner, and Winifred Clark was a pseudonym for the publisher William Lloyd Maddock Clark (WLM Clark(1880-1958)), who included the Winifred Worth book in his "Winifred" Series of Art Needle Books. His wife was named Susie Leah Snoddy, and she died a month after their second child was born. One of his five sisters (no brothers) was named Winifred Duncan Clark. She married James Henry Hancock in 1837 at age 41. Maybe she is the Winifred that inspired the pen name?

He started his publishing company in 1913, but his first book that I'm aware of wasn't released until 1915.



Becky Clark tracked down a listing of Winifred Worth Clark's books from 1915 to 1935 - 20 years and 31 books. This link will bring up an Excel spreadsheet:
