Dorothy Louise Gage
Birth: Jun. 11, 1898
Bloomington
McLean County
Illinois, USA
Death: Nov. 11, 1898
Bloomington
McLean County
Illinois, USA

Literary Figure. She was the niece of Maud (Gage) Baum and her husband, and "The Wizard of Oz" author, L. Frank Baum. Born to Sophie Jewel and Thomas Clarkson Gage in June 1898, she tragically died only 5 months later (the "official" cause of death was listed as "congestion of the brain"). The Baums had four sons, and Maud had always longed for a daughter. Maud was devastated by the infant's death, and it is said that her husband used the child's name in his Oz stories (and later books) to cheer up his beloved wife.
