Key Set Entry

Remarks

Born in 1898, Katherine “Kitty” Stieglitz was the only child of Alfred and his first wife Emmy. She graduated from Smith College in 1921, and married Milton Sprague Stearns in 1922. After giving birth to a son, Milton Sprague Stearns, Jr., in 1923, she suffered a postpartum depression from which she never recovered. She remained institutionalized until her death.
