Short biography
Frances Eliza Hodgson married Dr. Swan Burnett in 1873. She had already become a writer in order to support herself and her siblings. She became famous for her children's stories, which are still popular today. Many of them have repeatedly been made into films. A memorial sculpture was erected in her honor in 1936 in the Conservatory Garden of New York City's Central Park, depicting two characters from The Secret Garden, Mary and Dickon.
