DODGE, Mary Mapes, author, born in New York City in 1838. She is a daughter of Professor James J. Mapes, and was educated under private tutors in New York City. Early in life she married William Dodge, a New York lawyer of high standing, at whose death she was left a widow with two sons. Of these the elder, JAMES MAPES DODGE, became known as a successful inventor. In connection with Donald G. Mitchell and Harriet Beecher Stowe, Mrs. Dodge was one of the earliest editorial writers on "Hearth and Home," and for several years conducted the children's department of that paper. In 1873, with the issue of its first number, she became conductor of " St. Nicholas," an illustrated magazine for children, published in New York. She has contributed to English and American periodicals, and has published "Irvington Stories" (New York, 1864); "Hans Brinker, or the Silver Skates," which has been translated into French, Dutch, and other European languages (1865, new illustrated ed., 1876); "A Few Friends, and How they Amused Themselves" (Philadelphia, 1869); " Rhymes and Jingles" (New York, 1874); "Theophilus and Others" (1876); "Along the Way," a volume of poems (1879); and "Donald and Dorothy" (Boston, 1883).
