Evelyn O'Connell (Carnahan) was born in London, England to Howard Carnahan. At a young age, Evelyn acquired an interest in Egypt and its history, namely its artifacts. Commencing her career as a librarian, Evelyn ventured on an expedition to the ancient City of the Dead, Hamunaptra, where, along with others, she encountered an ancient cursed mummy known as Imhotep, which she helped to defeat.
At some point in the 1920's, Evelyn and Jonathan's parents were killed in a plane crash attributed to a curse connected to a mummy that Evelyn's father had disturbed, and as a result, Evelyn and her brother received a yearly stipend of several hundred pounds, which Evelyn spent according to her need, while Jonathan wasted the vast majority on liquor. Evelyn, despite being experienced in Egyptology, was denied an application by the Bembridge scholars in England at first, as they had insisted that she lacked experience.
Having an employment in the Cairo Museum of Antiquities Evelyn worked as the museum's librarian, sorting out books for the Museum's collection.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
