Gertrude Stein

Author Code: AGST

Born: Feb. 3, 1874 - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

Died: Jul. 27, 1946 - Paris, France

Educated at Radcliffe College, Stein graduated in 1897 and did two further years study at Johns Hopkins University. In 1902, she moved to Paris where she lived with her brother Leo until 1912. In 1907, she met Alice B. Toklas who became Stein's lifelong companion in a lesbian relationship. During these years, Stein and her brother amassed a large collection of Cubist art and befriended many artists including Picasso, who painted Stein's portrait. During the First World War, Stein was a volunteer driver for the French hospitals, which later honored her for her services. During the 1920's her home in Paris became the focal point of American ex-pat literature and art, attracting such writers as Hemingway, Thorton Wilder and Sherwood Anderson. Her own literary contribution began perhaps with Three Lives which appeared in 1909. Politically, Stein , although Jewish, supported Fascism, favoring Franco in the Spanish Civil War and the Vichy government in France. During the war, she and Toklas resided in Bilignin, where they were friends with Bernard Fay, a Vichy collaborator who, because of his close relationship with the Gestapo, kept Stein and Toklas out of harm's way during the persecution of Jews in France. He would later be tried as a war criminal. Noted for her "stream-of-consciousness" experiments in writing, Stein's Tender Buttons (1914) best exemplifies this. She died from stomach cancer in Neuilly-sur-Seine. Her other works include Geography and Plays (1922), The Making of Americans (1925), Useful Knowledge (1929), The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas (1933), Picasso (1938), Ida: a Novel (1941), Wars I Have Seen (1945), Brewsie and Willie (1946) and Patriarchal Poetry (1953 Posthumous).
