May Alcott, the youngest of the four Alcott sisters, is best known to readers as "Amy" in the beloved classic "Little Women," written by her sister Louisa May Alcott. Caroline Ticknor's 1928 memoir describes May as the vibrant artist of the family (as was the semi-fictional Amy), with an enthusiasm for beauty, people, and life. A half dozen of May's sketches are included in the book, as is a prelude from renowned American sculptor Daniel Chester French (Abraham Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial; the Minute Man statue at the North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts), who credited May with encouraging him to pursue his art.
