Marie Louise van Vorst was born 1867 in New York City. With her sister-in-law, Bessie McGinnis van Vorst, she wrote The Woman Who Toils (1903) about their undercover experiences as factory workers.
Around 1900 she moved to France and in 1914 volunteered with the American Ambulance at the Lycée Pasteur in Neuilly. This book is a collection of letters to friends and relatives depicting her life in those war days.
