Gift of Ariel Appleton and Sylvia Bruce, September 1984.
Lloyd Stephens Bryce was a politician and author who was born on September 20, 1851, in Flushing, Long Island. After a boyhood
in Georgetown, D.C., he traveled in Europe and
graduated from Christ Church, Oxford, in 1874. Bryce returned to the United States and in 1879 married Edith Cooper of New
York. After receiving a law degree he entered politics,
winning a seat in the United States Congress in 1886. His novel Paradise appeared the next year and, following his defeat
for re-election to Congress, Bryce turned to literature, publishing
The Romance of an Alter Ego (1889; reissued as
An Extraordinary Experience in 1891),
Friends in Exile
Lady Blanche's Salon (1899).
At the same time, Bryce served as editor of the
North American Review following the death of his predecessor, Allen Thorndike Rice, in 1889. Bryce assumed the editorship in September
and continued in that capacity until 1896.
Bryce subsequently served as the U.S. minister to the Netherlands and Luxembourg from August 1911 to September 1913. He was
a delegate to the
Opium Conference of 1913 and was an honorary vice-president of a Conference on Bills of Exchange. He died on April 2, 1917.
