Author Bio for Aldrich, Bess Streeter

Author Image

Bess Streeter Aldrich (1881-1954) was an American author. Born in Cedar Falls, Iowa, she attended Iowa State Normal School and then taught for four years. After marrying Charles Aldrich, they settled in Elmwood, Nebraska which became the setting for many of her stories. Inspired by a writing contest in Ladies Home Journal she began writing. Her first book, “Mother Mason”, a compilation of short stories, was published in 1924. When her husband died in 1925, she focused on writing as a means of support. She drew upon her family's pioneering heritage for source material for her stories. She was keenly aware of early life on the prairie frontier, for her parents were pioneers of northeastern Iowa. Many of her short stories appeared in magazines and at least one of her books, “Miss Bishop”, was made into a movie called “Cheers for Miss Bishop”.
