About the Story

At Church Inez Coralie “Nina” Wilcox Putnam was a playwright, novelist, and screenwriter. She was born in New Haven, Connecticut, and was homeschooled by her father. Putnam wrote short stories, children’s stories, westerns, romances, plays, musicals, and horror. Many of Putnam’s stories were made into movies. The 1932 screenplay for the film The Mummy starring Boris Karloff was adapted from a story by Putnam and Richard Schayer in which a 3,000-year-old musician injects himself with nitrates to stay alive. In addition, Putnam wrote the first US income tax 1040 form for the Internal Revenue Service in 1912.
