Born in New York City in 1880, to a wealthy family, she worked for numerous causes, was President of the Vaccination Society, raised funds for refugees during World War I, had a summer home in the Berkshires, and helped found the first Berkshire Music Festival, in 1934, which eventually became Tanglewood. She died in 1963.
This First American edition precedes the British, and is only preceded itself by a September 1903 off-print of 12 copies produced for copyright purposes.
