Susan Glaspell

Davenport has been the home of many people of talent, particularly in a literary way.  Society there is marked by the unusual cultivation of the men and women who live in that city.  Among the literary women is Miss Susan Glaspell, who was born in Davenport, July 1, 1882.  She is the daughter of Elmer S. and Alice Keating Glaspell.  She received her preparatory education in the public schools of Davenport.  She was graduated from Drake University at Des Moines with the degree Ph. B.  Following her graduation she took a post graduate course in the University of Chicago.  For a number of years she lived in Des Moines and did newspaper work of a high order, on the staff of the Des Moines Capitol and News.  Through several general assemblies she was State House and Legislative reporter.  She has written articles and short stories for Harper's Monthly Magazine, the American, the Atlantic and other periodicals.  She is the author of "The Glory of the Conquest" and of "The Visioning," both of which have been widely read.  Miss Glaspell is a woman of delightful personality, interested in society and in club life, although she is first of all devoted to the profession in which she has met with signal success.  Her friends believe that the future holds for her still greater success as an author.
