Margaret Sutton Briscoe was born in Baltimore in 1864 and was an honorary member of the Woman's Literary Club of Baltimore. She was educated by private tutor, regretting that she never attended college. She worked as a publisher in New York, where she married her husband, Arthur Hopkins, in 1895. The couple moved to Amherst, MA and had one daughter, Cornelia Dushane Hopkins. Briscoe counseled and taught at Amherst College and served in the Ladies of Amherst Club, Amherst School Alliance, and Amherst Civic League. She traveled the world, opposed suffrage, identified as a southern woman, and knew Mark Twain. She was a prolific author of short stories and novels, many of which were published in various magazines published by the Harper and Brothers publishing house and later collected in book form. Briscoe died in 1941.
