Biography of Constance F. Woolson
Cuyahoga County, OH Biographies





CONSTANCE FENIMORE WOOLSON, one of Cleveland's women to reach a high plane in the general field of literature, wrote novels and poems read and praised on two continents. One literary critic said, "No woman of rare personal qualities, or with more decided gifts as a novelist, figured in our own generation of American writers." She was a granddaughter of James Fenimore Cooper, and was born in New York, but was educated in Cleveland and in the French School in New York City. Her home was at Cleveland from 1873 to 1879. After that, much of her time was spent in travel, giving her the material that enabled her to write novels and discriptive work of such realistic force. Some of her better known books were, "Anne," "Old Stone House," "Castle Nowhere," "Lake County Sketches," "Dorothy and Other Italian Stories," "East Angels," "Juniper Lights," "The Transplanted Boy" and "Two Women."
