Dorothy Parker (1893–1967), U.S. author and humorist. As quoted in The Late Mrs. Dorothy Parker, ch. 2, by Leslie Frewin (1986).
At age six, Parker—though the daughter of a Jewish father—began attending the Blessed Sacrament Convent school in New York City. She was a rebellious student, and when she was thirteen, the nuns asked her parents to withdraw her.
