Mary Price Coulling
A graduate of Agnes Scott College, Mary Price Coulling has devoted over forty years to intensive study of nineteenth-century American women and the Civil War. Her biography of Robert E. Lee’s daughters, The Lee Girls, has gone through six printings. She began the biography of the Lee girls after discovering a cache of unpublished letters written by the daughters of Robert E. Lee while doing research for an article in a Washington and Lee University publication. She is also the author of Margaret Junkin Preston: A Biography, which is now out of print. She lives in Lexington, Virginia.
