Lucy Maud Montgomery was a Canadian author, best known for writing the Anne of Green Gables series.



Little Lucy Maud Montgomery

Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on November 30, 1874, in Clifton (now New London), Prince Edward Island to Clara Woolner Macneill and Hugh John Montgomery. Her mother died of tuberculosis when Lucy was 21 months old.

When Lucy was seven years old, her father moved to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and she went to live with her maternal grandparents, Alexander and Lucy Macneill, in the nearby community of Cavendish. She was raised there by them in a strict and unforgiving manner. Lucy's early life in Cavendish was very lonely.

School life
Lucy completed her early education in Cavendish with the exception of one year (1890–1891) during which she joined her enterprising father and step-family in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. She returned to her beloved Island only a year later.

In September 1893 she attended Prince of Wales College, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and wanted to get a teacher's license. Completing the two-year program in one year, she obtained her teaching certificate.

In 1895 and 1896, she studied literature at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. These years gave her the inspiration to create Redmond College in Kingsport, Nova Scotia.
