Margery Land May
Birth: Jan. 14, 1898
Death: May 13, 1932
Caddo Parish
Louisiana, USA

Author. She was a noted writer of short stories in the 1920s, and a film screenwriter of some note. She slipped into a depression not long after the death of her husband, Shreveport attorney James Martin Foster, and committed suicide at their home, "Currighmuir," which was located where the LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport School of Allied Health Professions is now located. Her film writing credits include "Those Who Judge" (1924), from her novel "Such As Sit in Judgment," "Destiny's Isle" (1922), "The Beauty Market" (1919) (from her short story "The Bleeders") and "By Right of Purchase" (1918) from her short story of the same name, written under the pen name Margery Land Mason.  (bio by: John Andrew Prime)
