Folk Figure. Anna Bronson Alcott was the first of the four Alcott daughters. Beautiful and ladylike, she is the model for "Meg" in "Little Women," penned by her sister Louisa. Early in life, Anna became involved with familial theatrics with her sister Louisa. Together, they formed the Concord Dramatic Union. During one of the productions, "The Loan of a Lover," Anna fell in love with fellow actor John Bridge Pratt. They married on her parents' anniversary, May 23, 1860. Unfortunately, John died and left Anna to care for their two sons, Frederick and John. Anna lived a quiet, domestic life, but sometimes aided Louisa in editing her stories. In 1877, Anna purchased the Thoreau House with the aid of Louisa and cared for her ailing father. Anna spent the last years of her life quietly caring for those she loved. (bio by: Abigailworm)
