Charles William Whipple was born in Creston, Iowa on May 5, 1880. His earliest memories
are of his trips to Heaven where he spent many happy hours. In 1931, on his 51st birthday,
he received permission to write about these visits which resulted in 7 books
and several smaller manuscripts.
In 1901 he married his childhood sweetheart, Susan Blanche Campbell, with whom
he spent over 60 years of “perfect married life”. Throughout his life he studied
and worked. Usually he retired after 10:00 and was up and busy by 4:00 am. He had
more hobbies than any person I have ever known, everything from model railroads
and collecting agates to writing books and working with Esperanto. He regretted
never having completed college and continued to take correspondence classes,
study and learn throughout his life, everything from shorthand and architecture
to the Bible. He was interested in almost everything. He even developed and printed the
photos you will see in his books.
In 1906 Mr. Whipple moved to Bellingham, Washington. There he worked as the educational
director for the YMCA and taught evening classes in shorthand, bookkeeping and
other commercial subjects. He also taught at Whatcom High School for 14 years and headed
the Commercial Department. In 1912 he gave his first sermon.
After leaving Whatcom High School he worked at various construction jobs and whatever
else he could to support his family through the depression. He finally ended up in
Seattle and worked for the Boeing Company until retirement. He died on March 26, 1962.
Additions may be made to this site from time to time but eventually things will settle down.
Mr. Whipple recommends "Seven Heavens" be the first book read. This will help your understanding
of the other books. Edna Gish and Maude Whipple are Charles Whipple's sisters and were missionaries
in China. In 1921, Otis Whipple, Charles Whipple's brother, along with his wife Julia started a
Christian Missionary Conference and youth camp called The Firs.
