Beulah Marie Dix was born in Kingston, Massachusetts, in 1876. Educated at public schools in Plymouth and Chelsea, Dix entered Radcliffe College at the age of 16, where she concentrated in history and literature. She was the first woman to win the George B. Sohier Prize offered for the best thesis submitted by an undergraduate or graduate of Harvard or Radcliffe in English. Dix sold her first story to Lippincott's Magazine and, while in college, wrote several plays for the Idler Club. She earned a retrospective Phi Beta Kappa and received her A.B., summa cum laude, in 1897, and her M.A. in 1898. After graduation, she worked as a writer, producing juvenile stories, short stories, novels and plays. Her first book, Hugh Gwyneth, was followed by short stories published in Harper's, Good Housekeeping and the Delineator. In 1910, she married George H. Flebbe, a real estate broker, and moved to Hollywood in 1916. For the next 16 years, she wrote original screen plays, continuities, and dialogue for Paramount, DeMille RKO, and Fox studios.
