Founding Mothers: Women in America in the Revolutionary Era, 1975

Biographical Sketch

Born January 19, 1940 in New York City. Career as a historian: assistant professor of history, U of Virginia, 1964-65; editor-in-chief of Documentary History of the First Federal Congress, 1965--; history professor, George Washington U 1966--. Founding Mothers was unplanned. DePauw had planned an extended bibliography on women in the American Revolution that was never published. However, it attracted the attention of the editors of Ms. Magazine who published it as a 'Story for Free Children' in 1974. Houghton Mifflin then picked up on it and asked her to make it into a book for young people to be published in time for the Bicentennial. She had never expected to write for young people, but she did this one and it was well received. Biographical Sources: Something About the Author vol. 24
