Willa Cather, 70, Dies;
Won Pulitzer Prize
For Novel in 1923
By tfm Associated Pr»»»
NEW YORK, April 26. —Willa
Cather, 70, Pulitzer prize-winning
novelist, died of a cerebral hemor
rhage late yesterday.
Her works included "My Antonia"
(1918), "Death Comes for the Arch
bishop" (1927) and her last "Sap
phira and the Slave Girl" (1940).
The Pulitzer award was given for
"One of Ours" in 1923.
Although born in Virginia. Willa
Sibert Cather was reared in Ne
braska and many of her novels had
Midwestern settings.
Miss Cather was for six years man
aging editor of McClure's Magazine
before beginning her career as a
novelist. Her first novel was "Alex
ander's Bridge," published in 1912.
Earlier, however, she had published
verse and short stories.
Wrote of Prairies.
She had lived in New York many
years.
Surviving are two sisters, Miss
Elsie Cather of Lincoln, Nebr., and
Mrs. Jessica C. Auld of Palo Alto,
Calif., and two brothers, John E.
Cather of Whittier, Calif., and James
D. Cather of Long Beach, Calif.
Miss Cather found her metier in
authorship which put into concise,
delicately molded fiction, the peo
ple of the Western prairies and
brought her recognition at home
and abroad as one of the outstand
ing writers of her time.
She was a newspaper writer and
high school teacher in Pittsburgh
and a magazine editor in New York
before she turned definitely to the
novel. Her earlier works included
many short stories and she also
turned out acceptable poetry.
Born Near Winchester.
Miss Cather was born near Win
chester, Va., on a farm which had
belonged to her great-grandfather.
Her mother's forbears, too, had been
Virginia farmers.
When Willa was 8 years old her
father took his family to Nebraska
and bought a ranch near Red Cloud.
It was a thinly settled region, de
voted largely to feeding cattle driven
up from Texas. There was no dis
trict school and Willa spent most
of her days riding her pony to the
farms and ranches of the Cather's
neighbors.
Many of those neighbors were
Scandinavians. Others were Bo
hemian or German. Hail, prairie
fires, drouths in summer, bitter
blizzards in winter and periodic
plagues of grasshoppers combined to
make existence a struggle for all of
them. Customs and language made
them interesting to the Virginia girl.
Read the Classics.
But if she lacked formal schooling,
her education was by no means
neglected. Evenings she read Eng
lish classics, often aloud to her two
grandmothers. She learned Latin
also.
As she reached high school age,
the family moved into the town of
Red Cloud and she entered high
school . then she went to the Uni
versity of Nebraska at Lincoln and
was graduated from that institution
in 1895. .
She chose Pittsburgh for her first
work because she had personal
friends there. She was on the staff
of the Daily Leader, off and on, until
1901, being telegraph editof for a
time and dramatic critic for another
period. But every summer she took
time off to return to the ranches of
Nebraska, Colorado and Wyoming.
In the autumn of 1901 she became
ncau ω uic uutsusu ucpHrimcnt in
Allegheny High School. She was
beginning to write for magazines
and in 1903 she published a book
of verge. The next year she sent
a collection of short stories to a
New York publishing house. It came
to the attention of S. S. McClure,
he sent for her, published her book
and in 1906 gave her a place on the
editorial staff of his magazine.
Traveled in Europe.
Two year's later she became man
aging editor of McClure's and for
four years did virtually no writing.
But she traveled in Europe, Arizona
and New Mexico. '
"Alexander's Bridge" was her first
novel. It was followed by "O Pio
neers!" (1913) and "The Song of
the Lark" (1915).
In 1923 she produced "A Lost
Lady," considered by many to be
her masterpiece. She wrote "The
Fortunate Mistress" in 1924, "The
Professor's House" in 1925, "My
Mortal Enemy" in 1926, and then,
in 1927, she added to her fame with
"Death Comes to the Archbishop,"
a tale of pioneer missionaries In
the Southwest.
There was an interval of four
years until her next novel, "Shad
ows on the Rock," its locale being
Quebec. It appeared in 1931, be
came a big success and in 1932 was
awarded the Prix Femina in France.
In that latter year she published
"Obscure Destinies."
The honorary degree of Litt. D.
was conferred on Miss Cather by
the University of Michigan in 1924.
Columbia University gave her the
same distinction in 1928 and Yale
followed suit in 1929.
