Kathleen O'Meara

Author; born Dublin, Ireland, 1839; died Paris, France, 1888. She was a granddaughter of Barry O'Meara, British surgeon to Napoleon at Saint Helena. She was a skilled biographer as is evidenced by her writings of Mme. Mohl, Thomas Grant, the Cure d'Ars, and "Frederick Ozanam, Professor at the Sorbonne, His Life and Works," her masterpiece. She also wrote several novels marked by their wholesome spirit, purity of tone, and delicacy of feeling; "Narka, a story of Russian Life" is probably the best.
