Merington, Marguerite


Merington, Marguerite
(1860-1951)
   Born in Stoke Newington, England, she immigrated with her parents to New York City. She became a teacher of Greek, but for over 50 years devoted herself to writing. Captain Lettarblair (1891), her first play to reach the stage, was produced by Daniel Frohman, often revived, and published in a handsome edition. It remained her most popular work, although she preferred Love Finds the Way (1898). Thereafter she wrote fairy-tale plays for children's theatre* and historical dramas for high school students, many of which were published in collections.
