Biographical/Historical Note

Maria Thompson Daviess was born in Kentucky in 1872. Her family relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, after the death of her father. She studied art in college and then traveled in Europe, turning her focus to miniatures and photography. She returned to the United States to teach art in 1904. She soon began writing, eventually producing 13 novels and an autobiography. Her interest in women's suffrage led her help found movements in both Nashville and in Madison, where she moved in 1915. She died there in 1924, a year after completing her autobiography, Seven Times Seven.
