The Writing of Mary Ann McCracken’s Story

July 26th

To mark the anniversary of Mary Ann McCracken’s passing, Clifton House and the Mary Ann McCracken Foundation hosted a virtual Zoom talk exploring how Mary Ann McCracken’s story has been written throughout the years. From her first biography in the late 1800s, to Mary McNeill’s seminal text on her life (1960; republished 2019) and the most recent publication by John Gray. This talk charted how Mary Ann, and women more generally, were viewed throughout the centuries.
