Mari Tomasi was born February 1, 1909, in Montpelier, Vermont. She wanted to study medicine; her sister was a nurse, and her brother and four of her cousins practiced medicine in Vermont. But when her father died she abandoned that goal and decided instead to become a teacher. Writing seemed to be her major interest, and before she took her degree, she left Trinity College to become a freelance newspaper and magazine writer. Mari Tomasi was deeply aware of the treachery of the granite that brought Italians to Vermont. Mari Tomasi's theme that the strength of endemic concepts in Italian character regenerates what might be corrupted in America.
