Mary Mapes Dodge

a.k.a. Mary Elizabeth (nee Mapes)

Author Code: AMMD

Born: Jan. 26, 1831 - New York City, New York, USA

Died: Aug. 21, 1905 - New York City, New York, USA

Mary Mapes was the daughter of an inventor and scientist, and grew up in an environment where such men as William Cullen Bryant and Horace Greeley were entertained. At 20 she married William Dodge, a lawyer, and they had two sons. She started writing children's stories when she was widowed in 1858. Her first collection, Irvington Stories (1864), centered on the American colonial family, was successful and prompted her publisher to request another. The following year Dodge's classic, Hans Brinker: or, The Silver Skates, appeared. The tale of an impoverished Dutch boy whose determination enabled him to obtain help for his sick father went through more than 100 editions during the author's lifetime. In 1868 Dodge became associate editor of Hearth and Home, with Harriet Beecher Stowe and Donald Grant Mitchell. In 1873, Dodge became editor of the new children's magazine, St. Nicholas. Its subsequent success was due to Dodge's high literary standards. Her editorial excellence enabled St. Nicholas to attract such well-known writers as Mark Twain, Bret Harte, Louisa May Alcott, Robert Louis Stevenson, Frances Hodgson Burnett, and Rudyard Kipling.
