About the Author:

Catherine Drinker Bowen (January 1, 1897 in Haverford, PA November 1, 1973 in Haverford) was an American writer best known for her biographies. She won the National Book Award for Nonfiction in 1958.

Bowen was born Catherine Drinker on the Haverford College campus on January 1, 1897, to a prominent Quaker family. She was an accomplished violinist who studied for a musical career at the Peabody Institute and the Juilliard School of Music, but ultimately decided to become a writer. She had no formal writing education and no academic career, but became a bestselling American biographer and writer despite criticism from academics. Her earliest biographies were about musicians. Bowen did all her own research, without hiring research assistants, and sometimes took the controversial step of interviewing subjects without taking notes.
