BIOGRAPHY

Grace Norton was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the daughter of Andrew and Catherine (Eliot) Norton. She was privately educated in Cambridge, and developed a great love for the literature of France. She became a great student of Montaigne, translating and discussing his works, as well as those of other French authors. Some of her articles appeared in "World Literature."
As a lecturer she was well known. We have received her lecture notes for the series of lectures on "Society in France during the 17th and 18th centuries," as well as those for a second series on other French personages in the literary field.
She was author of: Studies in Montaigne (1904), Early Writings of Montaigne and Other Papers (1904), Le Plutarque de Montaigne (compiled and edited 1906), The Influence of Montaigne, and The Spirit of Montaigne (1908).
She died in Cambridge, May 5, 1926. See also: Who Was Who.
