First - When was JB Fletcher born (what year)? My best guess so far is that she was born around 1928 (based on her reported age when the first book was published (The Corpse Danced at Midnight). I've searched "JB Fletcher's birthdate" "Jessica Fletcher born in what year" "What year was Jessica Fletcher born" - I need JB Fletcher's birthdate, not Angela's ;>
Second - What credentials were needed to teach high school English in 1947 in Maine (assuming JB was born in 1928 ;>)? 4 year BA or a 2 year? Did it matter if you were a woman? I've searched "credentials for teaching in 1947" "Teach in 1947 in the US" "school teacher in 1947" "license for school teacher in 1947" and can't find what's needed to get hired to teach in Maine.
