About us: Stuff for: Special Features: William Ormond Mitchell (1914 - 1998)
William Ormond Mitchell, second eldest son of druggist O.S. Mitchell was born March 13, 1914 in Weyburn, Saskatchewan. He spent the first twelve years of his life living in Weyburn at 319 Sixth Street and attended Haig School and Weyburn Collegiate Institute. At the age of twelve he contracted tuberculosis and he and his family relocated to St. Petersburg Florida, where the young Bill recovered from the ailment. Bill was later educated at the University of Manitoba and University of Alberta. In 1944, after two years of teaching, he moved to High River, Alberta, where he began his professional writing career. Bill married Merna Lynne Hirtle in 1942 and they had three children, Ormond, Hugh and Willa. In 1997, Ormond and his wife, Barbara selected some of Bill's best loved performance pieces and compiled them into a book, An Evening with W.O. Mitchell. In 1947 Bill published his first book, Who Has Seen the Wind , which has since sold over half a million copies in Canada. This timeless classic depicts prairie life flavoured with philosophy and religion. The following year he became fiction editor for Maclean's , a position that he held for three years. In the years following, Mitchell wrote more of his classic novels including

    W. O. Mitchell
    William Ormond Mitchell was born in 1914 in Weyburn, Saskatchewan. While, like many of his most memorable characters, he did grow up on the Canadian prairies, he also spent four of his teenage years going to school in California and Florida in order to recover from a childhood case of tuberculosis. Returning to Canada in 1931, Mitchell studied philosophy and psychology at the University of Manitoba for three years. After his studies were interrupted by a recurrence of his childhood illness, Mitchell wnet on to work in a variety of jobs, first in Seattle and later in Calgary. It was also at this time that he began to take his writing very seriously. In 1940, W.O. Mitchell enrolled at the University of Alberta where he continued his undergraduate studies, receiving a BA and teaching certificate in 1943. It was also in Edmonton that he met and married his wife, Merna Hirtle, with whom he eventually had three children. Mitchell's undergraduate years at the University also brought him into contact with another person who would be a great influence in his life, Professor F.M. Salter. Salter, a creative writing instructor at the University, helped Mitchell hone his craft and later, in 1942, arranged for the publication of three of Mitchell's short stories.

    The W.O. Mitchell Papers
    Biocritical Essay
    Catherine McLay
    In 1947, with the publication of his first novel Who Has Seen the Wind W.O. Mitchell first came to the attention of the Canadian public. The qualities which made this novel a classic also mark Mitchell's other works. The reviewer in the Montreal Gazette describes the immediate response to this new literary work:
    When a star is born in any field of Canadian fiction it is an exciting event....Here in this deeply moving story [of] a Western Canadian boy, his folk and his country, emerges a writer whose insight, humanity and technical skill have given the simple elements of birth and death, of the inconspicuous lives of common man etched against the bleak western landscape, the imprint of significance and value.
    For many contemporary writers, such as Rudy Wiebe Robert Kroetsch and Eli Mandel , W.O.Mitchell was the first to establish a literary geography of the West. Margaret Laurence recalls in the forties reading the early Jake and the Kid stories in Maclean's : "these stories were among the first that many of us who lived on the prairies had ever read concerning our own people, our own place and our own time....[We felt]

    Thank you to those who appreciated, enjoyed, and supported my Beverley Mitchell website. No time was wasted in making this website as it was a learning experience for me, it informed and entertained many people and myself, and it brought many people together. Closing this website is my decision. I will not discuss my reasons for closing this website. This is not an easy decision to make but it's best to close this website immediately. I will be putting my abilities, talents, and hard work to other website projects where they will be appreciated. That's all I'm going to say about that for now. It has been suggested to me that I should open a new Beverley Mitchell website. While I am considering this option I have no immediate plans to start a new Beverley Mitchell Website. In the meantime I continue to run my Beverley Mitchell Club , my Mackenzie Rosman Club , and my 7th Heaven Club at I make my own screen captures of Beverley, Mackenzie, and other 7th Heaven characters and post them at these clubs. Please join if you haven't.

    Eulogy for W. O. Mitchell by Rex Murphy.
    Broadcast on Cross Country Checkup, March 1, 1998 during a break in a program about Finance Minister Paul Martin's latest budget. I t is not for everyone that we would dare an intermission, during a program with a Finance Minister who may claim the credit for the first deficit-less budget in almost three decades. But then W. O. Mitchell is NOT just everyone, or anyone - must be careful here and it would be unjust if a program that calls itself Cross Country Checkup emphasis on the final syllables did not at the very least take a time out to salute the passing of one of this country's most respected, most enduring, and most affectionate writers: W. O. Mitchell. The practice of W. O. Mitchell offers a most interesting variation on one of Shakespeare's most compact observations. As Shakespeare had it the "imagination of a poet" gave to "airy nothings" ... "a local habitation and a name." In my judgement W.O. Mitchell worked that famous transaction in reverse. He gave to "local habitations and names" - a residence in the minds and imaginations of thousands. It was the province of his distinct genius to take the local and the particular something immensely familiar to him - a boy, the prairies, a family and to fashion that material so that it awakened recognition across the entire wide territory from Alberta to Zanzibar - of human response.
