Jean Webster

a.k.a. Alice Jane Chandler Webster

Author Code: AAJW

Born: Jul. 24, 1876 - Fredonia, New York, USA

Died: Jun. 11, 1916 - New York City, New York, USA

Educated at the Lady Jane Grey School and Vassar College, where she graduated in 1901, Webster had already become an active writer in college, producing plays, articles for the college journal and a news column for a local newspaper. After graduation she moved to New York City and worked as a free-lance journalist for various magazines. Her first book,When Patty Went to College,was published in 1903 and consisted of a number of short stories compiled into a novel format. An accomplished traveler, Webster visited many countries around the world. Her best friend, Ethelyn McKinney, often accompanied her and Webster became secretly engaged to McKinney's married brother Glenn. Webster's most popular work, Daddy-Long-Legs (1912) concerned an orphan who is sponsored at college by an anonymous benefactor. In 1915, she published Dear Enemy, which was a huge success and reached the 1916 best-seller list. She was also married that year to Glenn McKinney. Webster died from complications arising shortly after giving birth to a daughter in 1916, thus cutting short a most promising career. her other works include Wheat Princess (1905), Terry Junior (1907), Four-Pools Mystery (1908), Much Ado About Peter (1909) and Just Patty (1911).
