McLEAN, Sarah Pratt, author, born in Simsbury, Connecticut, 3 July, 1858. She was educated at South Hadley seminary, took charge for a season of a village school on the Massachusetts coast between Plymouth and Sandwich, and while thus occupied closely observed the local type of character and peculiarities of idiom and manners. Her first novel, " Cape Cod Folks," was the product of this study, and obtained a large circulation by reason of its realism, which was so striking that certain inhabitants of the district brought suit against her for libel. Miss McLean married Franklin Lynde Greene on 27 July, 1887. Her works, besides stories and sketches in magazines, are "Cape Cod Folks " (Boston, 1882)" "Some Other Folks" (1883)" and "Towhead, the Story of a Girl" (1884).
