Laura H. Richards

Famous Firsts Dept.: Laura H. Richards, who was born on February 27, 1851 and spent most of her life in Gardiner, established her writing career with children's stories. But her greatest literary achievement may have been the biography of her mother, Julia Ward Howe, co-written with her sister. It won a Pulitzer Prize in 1917 - the first Pulitzer awarded for a biography. (Sources: Women of Maine, by Lee Agger. Portland: Guy Gannett Publishing Company, 1982; Wikipedia, Laura E. Richards)
