The original novel The Secret of the Old Clock, on which this game was based, was written by Mildred A. Wirt (1905-2002) (pen name Carolyn Keene) based upon outlines by Edward Stratemeyer (1862-1930), founder and principal of the Stratemeyer Syndicate, which originally held the license for the Nancy Drew name and logos. The original book was published shortly before Stratemeyer's death in May of 1930.
In 1959, the story was revised slightly to update subject matter and social content and republished with updated covers. The outlines and manuscripts for the story were written by Harriett S. Adams using the originals from 1930.
