Fictional Timeline of the Great Brain Series

Although John D. Fitzgerald was actually born in 1906, he set his series of books just a little bit earlier.  Here is a reconstruction of the series timeline based on information presented within the books.  The date that each book was published is in parenthesis beneath the title.  The only break in the serial nature of the series is that Book 3 (Me and My Little Brain) occurs at the same time as the first half of Book 4 (The Great Brain at the Academy).  Book 3 covers events that occur in Adenville with John and the rest of the family while Tom and Sweyn are off at the Catholic Academy in Salt Lake City, as described in Book 4.  That was certainly an exciting year for the Fitzgerald clan!
