Willa Cather (1873-1947)
Novelist
Cather’s family moved to Nebraska when she was nine years old. She graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1895 and received her doctorate in 1917. McClure’s Magazine published her stories in 1905, and Cather quickly became managing editor of this leading American magazine. This was a position of great power and influence for a woman of that time. In 1912, she published the first of her 12 novels, “Alexander’s Bridge.” Cather is remembered as one of America’s finest novelists and Nebraska’s best. Her experiences in Nebraska figure strongly in her writing; most are set in Nebraska. Cather won the 1922 Pulitzer Prize for her novel, “One of Ours.”
