Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874-1942) was born in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, Canada, and raised by her maternal grandparents. She attended Prince of Wales College in Charlottetown, where she completed the two-year teaching-certificate program in one year, and went on to study literature at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She returned to live with her grandmother on Prince Edward Island, which became the basis for her "Anne" books. The publication of Anne of Green Gables in 1908 brought her overnight success.
