Lucille Maud Montgomery
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     One of Canada's most beloved literary characters is a red-haired girl named Anne (spelled with an e) Shirley. An orphan who is taken in by an aging brother and sister, she soon turns their ordered lives upside down. She was created by Lucille Maud Montgomery.
 
2     Maud, as she preferred to be called, was born in Prince Edward Island on November 30, 1874. Before she turned two, her mother died of tuberculosis. A short time later, her father left Maud with her mother's parents and moved west to Saskatchewan.
 
3     As a young child, Maud learned to enjoy her imagination and especially loved writing. By the age of nine she was writing poetry and keeping a journal.
 
4     In her late teens Maud studied for a teaching license at Prince of Wales College. She did two years of study in one and graduated with honours in 1894. She taught for one year; then she went to Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She took some literature courses and was one of few women in her time to seek a higher education.
