    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]

    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.

    W.O. Mitchell (1914-1998)
    Born in 1914 in Weyburn Saskatchewan, W.O. Mitchell claimed that he was indelibly stained by his childhood years on the prairies. Although he went on to attend high school in California and in Florida, and then live in High River and Calgary, in the foothills country of Alberta, he believed that his first twelve years, his "litmus years" had fixed his "inner and outer perspective, dictating the terms of the fragile identity contract" he would have with himself for the rest of his life. It is exactly this search for identity and for the meaning of life and death that compelled W.O. to write Who Has Seen The Wind. W.O. described Salter's impression of his finished stories when he met him the following week: "Salter said: 'This is vulgar, this is very clever, this is publishable, but this, this!' and here were these about four pages of handwritten recall, and he said, "I'd love to know what happened to that boy before this and after it.' And that was the true genesis of Who Has Seen The Wind." Six years later Who Has Seen The Wind was published to great acclaim in the United States and Canada. Before W.O. discovered his vocation as a writer, his first love was theatre. In his senior year (1931) at St. Petersburg High School in Florida he played Andy, the lead in Aurania Rouveral's Skidding. The production was a great success drawing a standing-room only crowd of 1,800. The St. Petersburg Times reported "From the opening of the curtain, Bill Mitchell captivated the audiences with his portrayal of Andy, the typical adolescent. His enjoyment of the part made it a triumph and many said he stole the show."

    Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. BREAKING NEWS! From (Tuesday, March 30 09:55 AM): Simmons, Mitchell Join ESPN's Earnhardt Movie LOS ANGELES ( - "Spider-Man" co-star J.K. Simmons and Elizabeth Mitchell have joined the cast of ESPN's movie about NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt. The movie, titled "3" after the number of Earnhardt's car, is set to begin filming April 14 in Atlanta and Charlotte, N.C., ESPN says. Barry Pepper ("61*," "Saving Private Ryan") is playing Earnhardt. Russell Mulcahy ("Highlander," "Skin") will direct the film, which will track Earnhardt's life from the small town of Kannapolis, N.C., his rise through the NASCAR ranks and his lightning-rod status as both a hugely popular and widely reviled figure among the sport's fans. Earnhardt died in a crash in the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500. His son, Dale Jr., won the race this year. Simmons, a regular on HBO's "Oz" and the ABC series "The D.A.," will play Dale's father, Ralph Earnhardt, a driver in NASCAR's early days who introduced his son to stock-car racing. Mitchell ("The Lyon's Den") will play Teresa, Dale Earnhardt's wife.
