Gertrude Stein
Birth: Feb. 3, 1874
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jul. 29, 1946
Neuilly-sur-Seine, France

Author. She attended Johns Hopkins Medical School University between 1897 and 1902, and graduated from Radcliffe in 1898. She studied psychology under William James and co-authored a study revealing that individuals show their essential characters through repetitions of speech and patterns of behavior. She began in the early 20th Century to combine the art she championed, Cubism and abstract painting, into her writing. Between 1909 and 1945 she published six books: "Three Lives", "Tender Buttons", "The Making of Americans", "The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas", "Everybody's Autobiography", and "Wars I Have Seen". She collaborated on an opera with composer Virgil Thomson ("Four Saints in Three Acts") and returned to the United States in 1934. While in France during World War II she was friends with Bernard Fey, a collaborator who was sentenced to life in prison after the war. She contributed funds to help with his escape from prison. She died in France from stomach cancer. (bio by: ditdit)
