Katharine Hepburn Biography
Katharine Hepburn was born on May 12, 1907 in Hartford, Connecticut. The daughter of a doctor and a suffragette, she was always encouraged to speak her mind, exercise her body and use her talents to their fullest potential. These were wise teachings since she lived to be 96 and had a very successful career and life. For most of her life she lived in New York City, but had recently lived in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, USA until her death on June 29, 2003.
Her career was so successful that she was voted the #1 actress on the American Film Institute’s list of 100 best actors and actresses of all time.
She wrote her autobiography, “Me, Stories of My Life” in 1991 and did a TV film about her life based on this book.
