Eulalie Minfred Banks lived from 1895 to 1999. She was a notable illustrator of many delightful children's books. Born in a southeastern suburb of London, England, she started her career in drawing at the age of 12 designing Christmas cards. After her move in later years to southern California, she also became known for creating murals in various buildings, both private and public, in the Los Angeles area. Her work included a mural at the Santa Monica Public Library, which has since been razed.
