Henry Handel Richardson *

a.k.a. Ethel Florence Lindesay Richardson

Author Code: OHHR

Born: Jan. 3, 1870 - East Melbourne, Australia

Died: Mar. 20, 1946 - Hastings, England

Ethel attended Presbyterian Ladies' College until she was 17. She later used this experience in her wonderful book, The Getting of Wisdom (1910). She visited Europe in 1888 and studied music at the Leipzig Conservatory. She married John George Robertson in 1894, whom she met at Leipzig. The couple moved to England in 1903. Ethel returned to Australia in 1912, later returning permanently to England. She produced some short story collections in addition to her novels. The Canberra suburb of Richardson was established in 1975. She adopted a male pseudonym, presumably to make it easier to get published. She died from cancer and was cremated. Her works include Maurice Guest (1908), Australian Felix (1912), The Way Home (1925), Ultima Thule (1929), The Fortunes of Richard Mahony (1930), The End of a Childhood and Other Short Stories (1934) and The Young Cosima (1939).
