About this author

KREY, LAURA LETITIA SMITH (1890–1985). Laura Krey, author, was born in Galveston on December 18, 1890, the only child of Fort and Lettie (Bains) Smith. When her mother died a few months later, Smith took Laura to live with his wife's relatives near Brookshire, Texas. The child was educated by tutors until age twelve, when she went to live with her grandmother near Staunton, Virginia. She attended Mary Baldwin Seminary in Staunton and earned her diploma there. She entered the University of Texas in 1909, excelled academically, and wrote for several campus publications. Upon graduation in 1912 she married August C. Krey, a history professor. He soon joined the faculty at the University of Minnesota, and the couple moved to St. Paul.
