On October 14

On this day in ...
... 1888, Katherine Mansfield Beauchamp was born in Thorndon, Wellington, New Zealand, then a colony of Britain. She was educated both in New Zealand and in England, eventually moving to the latter country and becoming part of a Modernist literary circle that included IntLawGrrls foremother Virginia Woolf. Under the pen name Katherine Mansfield (right), she won renown as a writer of short stories. She and her 2d husband, an editor, lived in England and in France. Mansfield died in 1923, from tuberculosis, at a treatment center in Fontainebleau, France. She was 34 years old. (photo credit)
