On September 26

On this day in ...
... 1919, Matilde Camus (right) was born in Santander, a community in the Cantabria region of Spain. (photo credit) The complications of childbirth would lead to her mother's death within a month. At age 9 Camus would write her first poem, about her father who was raising her as a single parent. A long career as a writer and researcher followed. Today she celebrates her 92d birthday.
