Born as Eleanor Hodgman, this great writer started aut as a performing
artist, studying vocal arts at the New England Conservatory of Music in
Boston. She gained a local reputation as a singer in concerts and church
choirs and continued her singing career after her marriage in 1892 to
John L. Porter, a businessman.
After 1900, she favored writing to singing.. Her stories began appearing
in numerous popular magazines and newspapers, and in 1907 she
published her first novel, Cross Currents. There followed The Turn of the
Tide (1908); The Story of Marco (1911); Miss Billy (1911), her first really
successful book; and Miss Billy's Decision (1912).
In 1913 Porter published Pollyanna, a tale of a most innocent heroine,
a young girl whose pollyanna ways of always looking for and finding the
bright side of things somehow subdues her antagonists. The book's
immediate and enormous popularity in countless reprinted editions,
assured the author’s fame. It eventually sold over a million copies.
Pollyanna, second on the fiction best-seller list for 1914, was followed
by Pollyanna Grows Up (1915). It also was made into a Broadway play
(1916) starring Helen Hayes and then into a motion picture (1920)
starring Mary Pickford (a 1960 version starred Hayley Mills), and it
inspired a veritable industry for related books and products. "
