Author Bio for Laut, Agnes Christina

Author Image

Agnes Christina Laut (1871–1936) was a Canadian journalist, novelist, historian, and social worker. Born in rural Ontario, the family relocated to Winnipeg Manitoba in 1873. She attended the University of Manitoba but was forced to drop out due to health issues. At this time she became interested in writing and her work was published in the Manitoba Free Press. She obtained an editorial job working for the Press and worked there from 1895-1897. After a few years travelling abroad, she decided to move to the Wassaic, New York in 1900 which was close to her book publisher.

She published several novels and books on Canadian history. She visited the country regularly either working or doing research for her books. She was also involved in social work. In 1919 she travelled to Mexico at the behest of the Childhood Conservation League to help children left homeless by the Mexican Revolution. (Canada's Early Women Writers: Simon Fraser University)
