General Information:
Full Name: Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett
(1849-1924) Writer. Born in England, Ms. Burnett came to New York, wrote "The Secret Garden," "Little Lord Fauntleroy" (1886), and others. The dramatization of novels without compensation to their original author had been a problem for English writers. With Little Lord Fauntleroy, Frances was the first author to win such control, which created the legal precedence. She lived in Plandom Manor, New York. She is buried in Roslyn Cemetery.
