American Patron of the Arts
Mabel Dodge Luhan was born into a wealthy family in Buffalo, New York and spent most of her life exploring and supporting art and artists. In 1918, after living abroad in Europe and in New York City, she moved to Taos, New Mexico and set up a "salon" for avant-garde artists of the day. The writer D. H. Lawrence, the painter Georgia O'Keefe and the photographer Ansel Adams all went to Taos to partake in Mabel's "Second Garden of Eden".
Mabel Dodge supported all the progressive movements of the day including socialism and psychoanalysis. She counted among her friends the famed anarchist Emma Goldman and the socialist and birth control enthusiast Margaret Sanger.
Dodge kept a journal that at times offers acute views of American culture. Her interest and support for native American culture is also well-documented.
Mabel Dodge has not been active as a cosmic baseball player.
