Mary Antin

Author Code: AMYA

Born: Jun. 13, 1881 - Polotsk, Russia

Died: May 15, 1949 - Suffern, New York, USA

The daughter of Jewish parents, Antin immigrated with her family to Boston in America in 1894. Educated at Columbia University's Teacher College and Barnard College where she graduated in 1904, Antin had shown an early interest in writing, publishing her first poem in 1899 in the Boston Herald. In 1900, she published From Plotzk to Boston, which recounted her travels from Russia to America and which was highly regarded by the critics. She married Amadeus Grabau and settled in New York City. There she met Emma Lazarus, who encouraged her writing. Her work, The Promised Land was serialized in Atlantic Monthly during 1911-12 and the book, which was dedicated to Lazarus, came out in 1912. It was an instant success and became the number one best-seller on the non-fiction list for 1912. She continued writing short stories and essays, but published only one further book, They Who Knock at Our Gates, in 1914. During the First World War, her husband's pro-German stance resulted in their separation in 1919. Antin was an active proponent of immigration as a way of improving the culture of America and supported immigration policies that effected that end. She moved to Massachusetts for a time before returning to New York towards the end of her life.
