[About the Great Lives biography series]

Katharine Lee Bates visited Colorado only once, but that was enough. She took home to Massachusetts a memory that led her to write, “America the Beautiful.” The poem, inspired by a trip to the top of Pikes Peak in 1893, was wildly popular and became a cultural fixture once it was set to the music of Samuel Ward. Katharine taught literature at Wellesley College for forty years.
