Edith Hamilton was born in 1967 in Dresden, Germany to American parents. She attended Miss Porter's School until her father's business went bankrupt, at which point Edith and her sisters taught themselves. Edith decided to become a teacher to support herself and attended Bryn Mawr, gaining a European Fellowship. While studying in Leipzig and Munich, Hamilton received a job offer from M. Carey Thomas to return to the States and Head the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore. Hamilton was just 29. She returned and accepted the position but never truly enjoyed the job. It wasn't until she retired that Hamilton found her calling. She moved to New York City and made friends with the theatrical and literary groups. In 1930, her book "The Greek Way" was published and Hamilton gained world renown as a classicist. It was her great honor to be made an honorary citizen of Athens in 1957. Edith Hamilton died in 1963.
